I absolutely love this dress!!! It's as beautiful as it looks in the picture!! The quality of the fabric is equally wonderful. I couldn't wait to wear it (I live in CT) so I wore it with a little short sweater and gray boots! I felt like a bouquet of flowers in the dead of winter!! Can't wait for Spring!! An absolute MUST HAVE!!!

I loved this dress in the catalog, but just tried it on and it's a big disappointment. Totally boxy shape, disproportionately large bust area and not long enough. I tried on an xs and I am 5'9" 125lb 32B and was swimming in it, but it was also too short, which made it even boxier. The print is gorgeous and the fabric is ok although a little rough.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by ames Works for me...
I'm six months pregnant & ordered a medium a size larger than usual. With a skinny belt worn above my belly it looks pretty cute as a flowy maternity dress. The straps do fit funny. If I wasn't prego, I don't know if I would like it as much, but it works for me right now :)

This dress has a beautiful print, but it fit very poorly in the bust area.
I am 5'4'' and about 115lbs. I wear a 32D bra size, and this dress definitely did NOT work with my boobs.
No matter how tight or loose the straps were, they would not stay up, and because of the weight of the dress, when the straps fell- boobs showed.
It was also not as flattering as I would have thought.

Lengthening the straps helped a little, but then the front was way too low. The ties on the sides were such a cute detail, but they added bulk in an undesirable place. Just not a flattering dress on my 5'4" 155lb frame. I will admit it looked nice with my denim vest over top! I wish this was just a beautiful circle skirt...

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.
