Rated 4 out of 5Â by Veexen Okay what.
So I based my purchase on the fact that there is no way I'm smaller than the model in the picture. We're effectively the same height. And even if I am as skinny as her (which I don't think I am) the small fits her perfectly! So I bought the small. And it's too big and certainly doesn't fit like in the picture.
I don't get why FP would be putting their models in Smalls and then pinning the extra material when they could just put them in extra smalls. I've had this problem a bunch of times now.
Now I like the dress but unless it's form fitting and the sleeves aren't loose, it just doesn't look right.
I live all the way in Australia and I'm just not in the habit of sending things back and doing all that because I'm lazy about shipping. So I really need to be able to trust the pictures and the "Model is wearing size X" part.
From now on I'll be flat out ordering XS every time.

Â by LamentingLizzie Not Perfect, but pretty nice
I really like this dress. I am 5' 7", about 145 lbs, and I bought a medium instead of a small for the arms. The fit is a little weird (re: loose) around the underarms, but it doesn't bother me on a day to day basis. It's loose and flowy.... very comfortable. Such an easy style too! I like to wear it with ankle boots and a pendant necklace for an everyday feminine look, or with a jacket, tights, and boots for more rocker chic. Definitely a nice everyday piece. It looks very similar to the model.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by begomo Just amazing
This dress is a dream!! I got it in black, size S. It looks and it feels amazing. It is a bit short (i'm 1.77m tall) but if you wear a slip underneath (and you need one) you'll be fine. I'm a 34D, no problem with the bust either. So happy I got this!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by KoDee1996 It's just a bit too big
I love this dress and it is gorgeous. The only thing is I bought a large because I'm 5'1" and weigh 148. I found it to be a little too loose. Other then that it is to the picture :)
Rated 5 out of 5Â by em1996 lovely!
This a the same fabric as the french courtship slip. Stretchy, soft , and durable. I usually wear xs in free people dresses this runs tts! The length is not too short but well above the knee, and I'm only 5'4" The only problem I had is choosing a color :)
Rated 2 out of 5Â by janeemcgrath Way to big
I am generally between XS and S in all my clothes so purchased an XS based on the feedback that this dress runs large. This dress runs extremely large! XS is way too big for me. Even thought they may have sent the wrong size but its definitely tagged XS. There is also much more fabric in the skirt than pictured. The excessive material in skirt made it extremely puffy like a ballerina tutu and did my figure absolutely no favours. Made me look short and dumpy. Sending back.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by maehymn Really fun dress
I waffled between ordering the medium and the large. I tend to wear exclusively large in FP dresses and medium in most tops. I ordered the large and I really like the way it fits. It's a little bit loose, but in a nice way. The material is really lovely and has some give--very similar to how the French Courtship slip fits. If you like your clothes more snug, I'd size down. I can't wait to wear it with thigh highs and boots in the fall. I'll probably be ordering this in black too!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by zarajanina Runs very large!!!
I was lusting around this dress for so long! Normally I would have ordered L-Size, since lace most of the times isn't stretchy and sits very tight. Not that one! Thanks to the helpful reviews I (usually wear M/L) did ordered already M-Size, which is still a little too large. I might have fitted S-Size as well.
When worn as a dress, I really recommend the Seamless Mini in Ivory below, it's a super matchy matchy combination and looks totally amazing together.
