Rated 2 out of 5Â by CSinLACA not very flattering
I was disappointed to get this dress in the mail. It looks very cheap and poorly constructed. it's going back to FP.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by sammi2693 Great mini dress!
I'm usually not a fan of smocking, but I love it on this dress. I got the black size small, my usual FP size and it wasn't too tight or too loose. It looks amazing in person, and it will definitely transition nicely for fall. Unfortunately, the first time I wore it the strap broke. It's an easy fix, but I expected better construction for the price. Overall though I'm very pleased and would definitely recommend this dress, especially at the sale price!

I agree with the other reviewers that this dress has a beautiful pattern and it runs a bit large. The colors are gorgeous and the contrasting florals are very interesting. The dress does run large though- just by one size. I took everyone's advice and ordered an XS instead of my usual small and it fits perfectly. I can certainly see how the smocking would stretch out throughout the day though. The skirt also does nothing for flat-butted ladies like myself. If that is a point of concern, I would avoid this dress. My back looks like a board from shoulders to thighs when I stand straight. Popping the hip helps but not much. I have come to terms with my small toosh, however, so I think I will keep this dress because it is so unique. But it might help mitigate the area for ladies with larger hips. Also-- the straps are unnecessarily long, so I tightened mine all the way which fixed the problem, but it may be an issue for some.

This easy sexy little summertime dress is so cute... it fits like a glove (5'1"...xs...95lbs)...the top is nicely fitted & the mini skirt swings so flirty when you walk...I think its so adorable, I ordered one in black too...the color scheme is beautiful & works perfectly with a denim shirt tied at the waist or a fab denim jacket...(PS...& you can wear it backwards too, with the V in the front...who knew?...) Free People rocks!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Anniwa Cute but short!
I ordered an XS due to the "runs large" reviews. I wear a 34B and normally a size 6; it fits perfectly around. The material isn't soft but I wouldn't call it uncomfortable in any way. But... this dress is SHORT! I'm 5'6". It's the perfect length in front but maybe 4" shorter in the back. One inch shorter and you'd see my undies. Great if you have no curves and skinny legs but for me... I won't be leaving the house in it. I fear that exchanging for a small to help the length would be too large around. So I plan to keep it and use for loungewear...

this dress definitely does have a unique fit. the torso is all smocked, and i find it to fit to size. right at the end of the smocking, and where the pleating starts, there's elastic inside, which could cause a little bunching and make the hip look wider. the good thing is that the straps are adjustable so i was able to move the dress lower to avoid the problem. overall, the print is quite different, and i like the contrast in floral prints.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Amied3 Perfect for summer/fall!
I saw this dress online and HAD to buy it! It is now one of my fave outfits. I ordered a medium but it is slightly big especially after the 'crinkles' loosen up once you're wearing it. Looks adorable with a denim vest/jacket and boots
Rated 3 out of 5Â by SMP123 Disappointed
I have had my eye on this dress since it came out and finally decided to order it despite the inconsistent reviews. i just love the print so much i couldn't help myself...but the other reviewers were right. the pictures are misleading. it is not form-fitting, but rather extremely loose at the waist which makes me look heavier than i really am. the color and print is at pictured (i ordered the white combo) but all except the bottom skirt part of the dress is made of an extremely uncomfortable fabric. I'm going to have to figure out how to wear a nice slip underneath and belt it at the waist. I want to make it work so bad because i love the print so much i am going to keep it, especially because i don't like dealing with returns, but i feel i would have been better off just ordering something else instead.
