I love this dress. I ordered the navy, and it is beautiful! I did read through all the reviews and I sized down, I'm 5'10 and 85 kilos, and always wear a large, so ordered a medium, and it is a perfect fit for me. This dress is designed to be loose and slouchy, very boho. The details in the embroidery and the cut of the bodice and sleeves is gorgeous. I imagine it would not be so good on a short, stocky person, but on someone tall or slim it's great. The slip is a bit difficult, I have to organise it and be careful putting the dress on, but when on I feel beautiful and very comfortable. Getting lots of looks in this dress. It is also seasonally versatile, it can be layered up with boots and a cardigan/coat in Winter, on it's own with sandals in Spring and Summer. I will be working this dress hard over the next few years. Very happy customer.

I had originally tried on the black version in the store and sized down from my medium to a small. I have an hourglass shape and it looked dumpy on me. Two months later I was reading a great fashion blog and the girl was rocking this dress in the cream color. I wanted desparately to pull off her look. So, I ordered the cream in small. It arrived, and yep, still looked bad on me. I LOVE the hot pink detail mixed with the cream in this dress. Unfortunately, this dress was not made for my body type. If you are an hourglass figure, I highly recommend the splendor in the grass dress instead (be sure to size down). That dress looks great on an hourglass figure. Bummed this dress did not work for me, but it looks fantastic on those who can pull it off.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by vintageatxgirrrl Black is not black, runs really large!
I ordered the "Black" online and was disappointed when it arrived because the dress is very clearly navy. Not that I couldn't make that work, I was just looking forward to the contrast of rust against the black. The dress also runs very large. I am usually a S, sometimes an XS in dresses at FP, I ordered the S, and it was very large on me. Not flattering. I returned it.

I ordered this dress via internet. I love the fit of this dress. I have seen reviews about this dress being "too big" but if one looks at the photo, the model is showing it is suppose to be loose fitting. I went to an actual Free People store after purchasing this dress and am still in love with it!
Yes, it is big in size but it is suppose to be! Who would want this type of dress to be fitted anyway?
Great dress for all seasons, depending on the shoes/boots you would wear.

First, the "black" is definitely Navy blue, I compared it to several other pieces of black clothing and it's not even a close call- dress is blue! But I was hoping it would be anyway.
The dress is very flowy- while the slip fits fine, the dress itself is very loose. I like flowy, not a problem. BUT, the gathered skirt hit me right at the hips, and without accentuating the waist it just didn't do much for my curvier figure. If you notice the model wearing the "black" version, she has her arms and hands strategically placed which gives the dress an illusion of having more shape, but it really just hangs straight down until the gathered skirt starts.
Lastly, the slip sewn into this dress is SO DIFFICULT to maneuver to get on! I own several dresses with sewn-in slips, I know my way around getting one on, but this dress.. this dress wants to strangle you first. I was still considering keeping it until I tried it on for the second time and had to fight with that darn slip again. Returned!

I think I would have liked this dress better if it was whiter as in the pic. I think the neckline is not flattering for me. Not sure why I didn't like the dress. I ordered a size down which was good. I think it just doesn't look good on me so I had to return it!

Â by lizzieu I am not sure....
I loved the dress, however, as the other reviewers said, it is huge in the back. The front is fine, but the back in extremely full and long. I tried with a belt and looks better. I am 5'6 and the dress is xs, i kind of like the way it looks belted, even though, my idea was to wear it loose. I think i am keeping it.

Bought this dress as a transition piece heading into spring....read the reviews and ordered a size down and it fits perfect. Loose but not swimming, attached slip fits just as it should. absolutely will be a favorite in my closet. Beautiful pink stitching! Love it!
