Rated 2 out of 5Â by KaylaS Falling apart (this is a big long, forgive me)
This dress is beautiful, no doubt. I bought the blue one in a small based on the recommendation of an associate (they didn't have any at the store near me so I ordered online). I waited months to wear it because I got it in February and it didn't stop snowing till about May. The first time I got to wear it out, I noticed that the straps were obnoxiously loose and long, so I had to keep pulling up my dress to keep my cleavage at least a little in check. Also, when I took it off, the frayed canvas straps actually began to unravel. I know the designers probably thought it looked really cool and bohemian and hipster and whatnot (hey, so did I), but this is a seriously flawed part of the dress. What will I do when the straps completely unravel and disappear? Can I send it back so you can sew on new straps? It really sucks that this dress has a time limit, for all the money I paid for it. I wore it out again and noticed more unraveling as the day went on--a day of gently strolling through the zoo. I love the dress otherwise and I'll have to keep it now anyway, but I wish there was a little more thought put into the materials.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RedMoon Perfect fabric for hot weather!
I live in the desert so I always look for dresses that are comfortable in this climate and this dress definitely fits the bill! It is a light almost gauze type fabric. Very breathable but most importantly does not need a slip underneath. What's the point of buying a light breathable fabric and then have to pile on another layer? No worries with this one. Like others mentioned the straps are too long but it only took me about 20 minutes to take them up an inch and a half and I am not a fast with a needle and thread! The fit is perfect now. I bought the green black and I love it! I am 5' 10" 160 lbs and the medium fits just right. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

I thought this dress would be a great addition to express my fun quirky style. I was disappointed that it runs large and there seemed to be too much fabric (totally lost my chest). In addition the wide straps contributed to my decision not to try a size smaller, XS. There was just too much fabric.

I bought this in green/black in a small, it just got here and it is a work of art. Would be a bit better if it fit me though, its loose in the torso. I think sizing down would have made it fitted like the photographs. I'm 5'9 135lbs 32b. Adjusting the straps and a big push up bra should fix it though

This dress is complete frumpsville. Very unflattering. It made me look like I have huge behind and hips of which I have neither. Not such a flattering cut the way it balloons out over the bottom half of your body. I like the fabric and the potential this design has but fp should have shaped the this dress better.

When I first saw this dress I wanted the blue color, but then decided against it because I was afraid it'd end up looking like I was wearing a bath towel... so instead I purchased the army black/taupe combo and I'm glad I did. I ordered the xs, I'm 5'4 118 lbs and it fits well for the most part, like another reviewer said the straps are too long and will need adjusting. It also seems to hit in a semi-unflattering place which ends up making my waist look larger than it actually is. And the material is a bit on the cheap side, def not worth 128 dollars. I'll keep it if I can't find anything better to exchange it for. Super cute idea I just wish it could have been made with better quality for the $, as usual with FP.

I really loved the pictures of this dress but when I got it it just turned out to be a little too "grungy" for me so I sent it back. Just not my style. It is very comfortable and will easily allow for a bra underneath. Does not have much stretch, the grey panels in the back are not stretchy. I think it pretty much looks as pictured...just not for me.

This dress is amazing on! I wasn't too sure about this dress when I first saw it on the catalogue. I didn't think it was to my liking and I am so glad that I tried this on at my FP local store. I was so pleased to received so much compliments from FP staff. They told me it's my loss if I miss out on this dress! It sure gave me nice fit and shape and I love the sideway slit on the back! I purchased the ivory/blue and it is as true in person and on line! I can not pass on this dress, very beautiful!
