Rated 2 out of 5Â by emaa91 Disappointing
I could not wait to own this dress when i saw it online and immediately called my FP store. They had it in and I tried it on today and it made me look a size to two sizes larger than I do. The straps constantly fell down (I had it on for a few minutes) and the lacing on the sides looked awkward no matter how I tied them up. I am not someone that can deal with constantly checking on strings and buckles in the first place. The pleats also fell awkwardly down my torso. I am slender with wide hips and a tiny waist and you could tell the difference between my waist and hips. However, I do believe someone a bit shorter than me (I'm 5'10") would find this dress flattering. The fabric is also pretty heavy and I was expecting something with more breathing room. Oh well!

This dress is beautiful in person and was a perfect length. I got a medium and I am 5'6". Unfortunately, like the other reviewers said, the straps fit a little too wide on the shoulder and the criss cross on the side made me look larger. It just didn't work on me.

I bought this is a large in the ivory. The fabric has an excellent weight to it that makes a lining unnecessary. The drape is fantastic and the print is lovely. The first time i put it on I was completely sad because the dress just sort of ate me up and I could not see my figure at all. I played with it for awhile by adding a waist-belt and I felt much happier with this dress. If you are a 10/12 like me a waist-belt may make all the difference.. I layered a thermal underneath for cooler weather. I tried layering the shaggy-knit p/o with this but the look was too boxy, so I tried a cardigan instead and that looked great. This is a beautiful voluminous dress.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Sabbathblackcat Nice dress, but...
label reads "100% rayon", not cotton. This design and print are great, but for the price the consumer should know the actual material content.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Cinders Beautiful...but did not work...
I can't say enough about how pretty this dress is. I purchased the Ivory and it's gorgeous. I really liked the laces up the sides... but the fabric is a bit stiff as the last reviewer mentioned, and it just did not work on my shape. The only other issue was that the straps are set pretty wide, so they sit very close to the edge of the shoulder. Wish it would have worked on me, it is a beautiful dress. Only gave it 4 stars because of the straps.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by lisaizzykate Pretty summer dress~
I bought this in the Ivory , it is a beautiful fabric , well made and similar to some of the vintage dresses i have from the 60's . Unfortunately it did not flatter my figure . It was too open on the sides where it laces up and too fussy for me. I am tall and small on top so thought it would hang nicely but it was a bit stiff and made me look frumpy. I give it 4 stars because of the workmanship and it is just so pretty ~ really wanted this to work and i am sure it will for someone else~

Fits great! Exactly as pictured. The print is lovely and bold, great length, and the cotton gauze is substantial...for a gauze. Finally an FP dress that wont pick up giant branches while i walk across terrain harvesting natural dye plants and medicinal herbs.

I am so happy with this dress!! I was getting so frustrated with free people maxis...so gorgeous but wayyy too long for us short girls! This dress is an awesome length on my 5'4" frame, and it is so beautiful! I love the tie details on the side, and the print (I got ivory) is great for all seasons! The fabric has some weight to it but is not too heavy, and will be perfectly flowy once the temperature rises and I don't have to wear layers underneath. It is a little shapeless on the bottom but a belt fixes that problem easily and makes the pleats really noticeable. can't wait to wear this again and again! i might have to get the other color. for the record, i am 5'4", 145 lbs, 34DDD, and i got the medium and it fits great. might have even been able to size down to a small but with my chest i rarely take that risk :-)
