Rated 2 out of 5Â by KaylaS Falling apart (this is a big long, forgive me)
This dress is beautiful, no doubt. I bought the blue one in a small based on the recommendation of an associate (they didn't have any at the store near me so I ordered online). I waited months to wear it because I got it in February and it didn't stop snowing till about May. The first time I got to wear it out, I noticed that the straps were obnoxiously loose and long, so I had to keep pulling up my dress to keep my cleavage at least a little in check. Also, when I took it off, the frayed canvas straps actually began to unravel. I know the designers probably thought it looked really cool and bohemian and hipster and whatnot (hey, so did I), but this is a seriously flawed part of the dress. What will I do when the straps completely unravel and disappear? Can I send it back so you can sew on new straps? It really sucks that this dress has a time limit, for all the money I paid for it. I wore it out again and noticed more unraveling as the day went on--a day of gently strolling through the zoo. I love the dress otherwise and I'll have to keep it now anyway, but I wish there was a little more thought put into the materials.

I thought this dress would be a great addition to express my fun quirky style. I was disappointed that it runs large and there seemed to be too much fabric (totally lost my chest). In addition the wide straps contributed to my decision not to try a size smaller, XS. There was just too much fabric.

I bought this in green/black in a small, it just got here and it is a work of art. Would be a bit better if it fit me though, its loose in the torso. I think sizing down would have made it fitted like the photographs. I'm 5'9 135lbs 32b. Adjusting the straps and a big push up bra should fix it though

This dress is complete frumpsville. Very unflattering. It made me look like I have huge behind and hips of which I have neither. Not such a flattering cut the way it balloons out over the bottom half of your body. I like the fabric and the potential this design has but fp should have shaped the this dress better.

This dress is amazing on! I wasn't too sure about this dress when I first saw it on the catalogue. I didn't think it was to my liking and I am so glad that I tried this on at my FP local store. I was so pleased to received so much compliments from FP staff. They told me it's my loss if I miss out on this dress! It sure gave me nice fit and shape and I love the sideway slit on the back! I purchased the ivory/blue and it is as true in person and on line! I can not pass on this dress, very beautiful!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by twinmama07 really cute.
I got this in a medium, because I was afraid the small would be too tight in the bust. Now I get the medium and it a little bit too loose in the bust. However this is easily fixable for me since it isn't by much and I sew. The straps are also 1/2 inch too long on each side, also easily fixable. I think I will wear this dress a lot this summer and I'm really excited to do the alterations and wear it. I think the medium was the way to go since on this design I may have been in between sizes and would rather it be loose than tight. I am 5'9, 135 lbs., & a 36B. Also, where she is holding up the side in the pics, it is hard to tell if there is a slit or raised uneven side. There isn't, which I am also happy about. Very soft, flowing, gauzy material too.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by michaela33 Odd fit
I really want to love this dress. But I agree with the previous reviewer - the straps are way too long. I'm not sure why it's made like that. I'm ordered a small, and I'm a 34D. I always have to worry about how things fit in the bust. I definitely don't recommend this one for the busty girls. While the bodice of the dress was way too small & my chest was hanging out, the actual straps were loose and would need taken in. Bizarre fit. The rest of the dress is adorable though. Maybe someone will be built just right in the shoulder/bust area for this one! But not me ):
