So beautiful on the model, but dress looked wildly different in person.! I'm 5.4ft, size M and it looked like it was 2-3 sizes too big. Too big, too long (well below the knee) and too baggy. The lace on the sleeves doesn't contrast like it does in the pics! Big disappointment.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by swoods Tried to make this work
After reading the reviews, I figured this would be a dress I needed to try on in person, and I'm glad I did. I could not find a way to make this work - sizing up, sizing down; no matter what, it looked bizarre and ill-fitted. The lace sleeves and pattern (I tried on the pink color) were lovely and I really had high hopes, but this was a huge fail. For reference, I'm 5'3 and busty, and occasionally I find a Free People dress style that won't work on me because it was just made for someone taller or more flat-chested. However, I honestly cannot even imagine what body type this dress would work for. The idea and material of this had so much potential, but I don't know what they were trying to achieve with the weird smocking and overall strange fit.

I had such high hopes for this dress, but it just doesn't work for me. The smocking in the waist comes up a bit too close to my bust. Large chested ladies, size up if you want the blousey look shown on the model. Also, the lining in the skirt is visible in the photos, but is much more pronounced in person, which I really don't care for. Plus there is a bunch of loose threads and it just sort of seems like it won't hold up for more than a season or to, and for the price it just isn't worth it to me. Back it goes :/
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPNapagirl lovely but not the right fit
I so wanted this to work. I'm 5'8" and 125lbs, usually a size 2. I am long legged and short waisted so I agree with the other reviewer that it may not be the best fit for those with a shorter torso. I ordered the XS and am thinking I might try the small, my only hesitation is this dress fit me perfectly everywhere except where the elastic hit, which was maybe 2 inches below my bust. So I'm not sure the small is going to make much of a difference. The reddish pink color and pattern is divine and I love how flowy the bottom half of the dress is. And the sleeves... so pretty. I'm giving it 4 stars for the overall look of the dress, but minus a star for the fit.

I really love the look of this dress in the pic of Dree Hemingway on the boat. In reality, it doesn't look quite like that. The thing I noticed right away is the white lace on the arms is not white, its the same color as the fabric, so it does not contrast like it does in these pics. Which really makes me like the dress a lot less unfortunately. As for sizing, it runs big. I should have gotten an XS instead of an S. I am 5'7 122 pounds. Otherwise, it is a lovely dress. I am considering getting the pink one instead, the white washes me out too much.

This dress is so pretty. I ordered the Rose color and the print is beautiful. But I am 5'5" with a short waist and the elastic was hitting me in all the wrong ways around the mid section. I ordered a small and it fit every where else just fine. Sadly I am returning it, I just couldn't make it work. :(
I would recommend this dress for someone with a long mid section. It is worth the price!
