Made in California, this vintage-inspired midi dress features a femme floral print and surplice V-neckline. Drawstring waist makes for an easy, effortless fit. Subtle piping along the shoulders and cap sleeve detail for a soft look. Relaxed silhouette. Unlined.
Ordered this dress in both colors in a M/L. This is such a great design, but the fabric in the white color needs to be lined. You could see everything! The blue color is better, I kept it and returned the white. Bust area is a little tight if you have a larger chest. Everything else is great. Wish they offered it in more colors!
This is such an adorable, easy to wear dress. Super comfortable, and the drawstring waist is versatile-- looks good cinched tighter for waist definition of left loose for a baggier fit. Usually I stay away from more generic xs/s, m/l sizing because I'm on the petite side, but the xs/s in this one fits great! As another reviewer mentioned, the light blue floral version is VERY sheer and requires a slip underneath. Although it's not a huge issue since I have a couple slips, I think for the higher price point a slip could have been included.
Amazing dress with a few issues
Full disclosure, I'm a senior citizen who loves FP but obviously a lot of items are meant for the young. This dress looked so pretty and appropriate for anyone. After reading the glowing review, I ordered the white/light blue floral in a size large (5'4", 155 lbs) and crossed my fingers because the listed measurements seemed really small. The dress fits although a bit smaller through the waist, there's enough flow to make it work. It really is beautifully crafted. Like the perfect dress. The bust gaps a bit but there's one snap to hold it together. The sleeves hit at a perfect spot on the arm. And on me it hits about lower calf. But here's the deal breaker. The fabric is paper thin and completely sheer. I mean see all your business sheer. The description doesn't mention it. I don't think any slip would help make this wearable for me. I'm going to return this one and considering trying in the all blue because it's just so perfect.
Beauty and Comfort
I own the Dawn dress in the white floral and it is just *the* most perfect dress ever. It can be dressed up or down, worn with sandals, boots, Converse, whatever. It looks great with a big hat, cardigan - I mean the ways to accessorize are endless. It's super comfy and whenever I wear it, I never want to take it off. The quality is very good - Christy Dawn's dresses are hand-made in LA and they take craftsmanship very seriously. On top of that, her fabrics are deadstock, so major eco-friendly points here. Mine is a "one size fits all" style, but I think in this sized style I would be a XS/S. It's a loose fit with an adjustable waist, which I love. The plunging neckline keeps things from being too "little house on the prairie," and it's sexy in a demure, feminine way. If I could have a closet full of Christy Dawn dresses, I would be the happiest girl *ever!*
