Rated 4 out of 5Â by marla1955 WELL MADE, FRIVOLOUS, LACKS SOPHISTICATION
I was very conflicted about this dress, but finally returned it. I am over 50 and 5'6", 150 lbs., with 38D bust. I was surprised that the large was a bit droopy and considered exchanging for a medium. Utlimately though, while the quality and material are superior, the style is just slightly too frivolous and cluttered. The elaborate ruffling on front and back combined with the sloped hem and butterfly sleeves result in it being too elaborate and lacking sophistication seen in photo. The sleeves are very short causing them to extend out from the shoulder instead of lying softly on the top of arm. The bodice sags and does not flatter full bust. I tried it with a belt but that only further added too much embellishment. I felt like the queen in Alice in Wonderland. While not quite right for me, this dress is exquisitely made, charcoal color is rich, and fabric is perfect medium weight, soft and drapes well. Would recommend for young, thin gals perhaps, and go for a size smaller. I love Free People garments, but for the exorbitant price, it just didn't cut it this time!

I wrote earlier that when I saw this dress on line when it first came out I was beside myself with excitement....Doesn't take much anymore..lol....Anyway, I just received the charcoal in the mail and I can't say enough good things about it...It is incredibly soft. light weight, lined wonderfully and fits me like it was made just for me...It looks EXACTLY like it does on the model...sooooo happy with it...Want the ecru one now, of course...I am actually wearing it as I type this....I have the black rain drop top on over it so i looks like a great skirt...With my black lace up boots I have to say I am looking good..haha...Get this dress if you can...It will definitly put a smile on your face...:)

Fits fab, for those shorter girls who could not make the Lydia skirt work for you, try this. Very flattering, well made and good weight to the fabric. I am 5 ft 2 and got the xs so without heels it drags a bit but I wear it with the Joe boot and it works a treat. Got lots of compliments from strangers on this dress. Would love to see in this in a rich red or deep blue.

Fits beautifully. the ruffles give a lighter look to the sturdy, heavy material. It's stunning. The ecru color looks just as pictured. Two thumbs up!

This dress is fantastic! Very well-made, the dress fits like a dream and is extremely flattering. It has a little weight to it, which is perfect for fall. It really is a bit of a show-stopper!

Comfortable, easy to wear, flowy, feminine without being fussy - what more can you ask for??
Fits true to size.

I find FP clothing hit and miss at times regarding poor fit or poor quality and I was weary about this dress and if it would suit my body type. I am a US 6-8, curvy and I was afraid that the ruffle style would accentuate my hips. I was pleasantly surprised. I bought the M in Ecru and it fits great. It is slightly relaxed at top and the skirt falls nicely. A heavier dress with all the ruffles however would make a great piece for your cooler nights. The back hem is of course too long for my 163cm height, however I like the dramatic length.

I spotted this dress at the local Free People store and I didn't think much of it, but I still decided to try on, being inspired by the picture featuring Military Ruffles Jacket. Lace Hood Pullover and this dress.
Wow! The dress looked so amazing on me. I totally loved the fit, and how ruffles covered all the little imperfections. Even my boots looked good with this dress. This is the perfect example why I love Free People. A very simple material was transformed into the great, beautiful dress, that can fit all shapes and sizes. For the reference I was wearing size S in ecru color.
