Rated 4 out of 5Â by NinjaGirl Beautiful details
This dress is simply beautiful and full of little details that make FP clothing so special. The lace and crochet trim around the neckline is very well done, and I love how the trim goes all the way around the neckline and not just on the front of the dress. The embroidery is machine stitched and very delicate. There is a tiny covered button on the cuff of each 3/4 length sleeve. The shoulders fit pretty nicely, however there is a lot of room through the rest of the dress. The waistline is not quite empire, but just above the natural waistline. I'll have to pin the front closed as it gaps a bit, and the fabric is pretty sheer so a slip is a must. I purchased this in an XSmall in ivory, and it looks pretty true to the online photos. The dimensions of the XSmall I received are:
length from back of neck to hem: 46"
bust all around: 36"
waist relaxed at elastic: 25 1/2"
sleeve length from shoulder seam: 20"

I saw this dress at Nordstrom.com before it was posted on Free people and immediately bought it. Nordstrom indicated in their review to order a size down. I got a small instead of my usual medium and I am glad I did. This dress does run large. You will definately need to order a size or 2 down. I am actually thinking about getting the extra small for comparison but am afraid it will be too tight at the chest (for reference I am a 38C). The details on this dress are fantastic. The dress is sheer and like another reviewer stated you will definately need to wear a slip underneath. The skirt is full but not in a bad way where it makes your hips look huge or makes you look like you put on 20 pounds. I plan on wearing it with brown boots like the model.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by KateRose My favorite dress
I absolutely LOVE this dress. It's loose and flattering, hangs beautifully and is very comfortable. The material is soft and has a nice weight to it that, again, makes the dress hang nicely and feel expensive. Every time I wear this I get compliments. It's sheer so I wear a simple nude slip underneath that has a bit of lace that peeks out at the top for a pretty layered look. I'm 5'8 and it hits me midcalf, and looks great with boots. I'm a 36C and the bust of this dress is definitely loose. I just use a little turquoise and silver post earring to secure the overlap where I like it to be- it's a pretty solution that I can adjust if I want and it does the job. And after adding necklaces, you barely even see the little earring post anyway. I love the way I feel in this dress, I'd wear it everyday if I could!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lowen Beautiful, delicate
The other reviewers are right--this dress is gorg. It is a bit big on top--I'll need a pin to keep it closed as well. I'm only 5'3" so this dress is really long on me, almost to my ankles or just about there. The fabric is sheer, but soft and delicate. It has beautiful details and the draping seems perfect. I don't have any other dresses like this, it's so unique. It's definitely worth the money. I bought a small, which is a just a bit oversized. I'm 5'3", 140lbs and 36C.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by ZShop I really wanted to like this dress
I really wanted to like this dress. The style is great, though I found it to be slightly loose in the bust and I have a medium-large bust. The embroidery is the star here - it's fantastic. I really love it. But overall the dress was too sheer, and I can't be bothered wearing a slip. If that's not a problem for you and you have a bust on the larger side, then this could be a fantastic dress for you. But for the reasons above and because beige isn't a great color for me, I returned it. If the colors were reversed and it were a black or very dark grey dress with red and white/ cream embroidery it would be amazing, and I would definitely buy that!

This dress is beautiful! The only thing is the dress on the model in the field is different then the one in on the model in the studio pics. The one I received has a lower waist and blousier top. As you can see the dress in the catalog picture has a higher waist. That's the dress I want so I have to now tailor the dress which is difficult to do.
Will email to see if the original dress is actually available. Runs large also. You have to pin the front shut or wear something under it.

I bought this while in NYC. I got a little mini slip underneath and put on my cowgirl boots for a great walk threw Broadway! I got so many compliments on my whole outfit. I felt lie a million bucks!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by TiffanyMichelle tts but sheer
This dress is true to size but totally sheer. It will require a slip. That being said, it is incredibly comfortable and beautiful. Well made with great details. I highly recommend this.
