Best dress I've purchased in ages
I love the heck out of this dress. I'd buy them all up if they had more colors in my size. I've tried on a lot of maxi dresses and this is the first one I've actually committed to because it isn't see-through and doesn't show panty lines. It's perfect for spring and fall, and I'll be wearing it both to work and an outdoor wedding I'm attending.
My dress came today and I love it! It's super comfy and super cute! Ordered the medium, it's a little long but I like it that way. I'm acting in a Jane Austen play right now and I just know this dress will be perfect in rehearsal and out. Thanks Freepeople! Xxx
loved it and then washed it...
i loved this dress as soon as i put it on - soft material with long sleeves and perfectly roomy without being shapeless. the problem? as soon as i washed it, it shrunk AT LEAST 3 inches on the hem and sleeves. i'm so sad because it was perfect out of the box.
Hi kwonder, Sorry to hear about your dress. Someone will be reaching out to you. Thanks!
I think I've tried all possible colors of this dress, except for black. I like this dress, the material is soft, very nice to the skin..easily stretchable (so you might want to wear some shape wear with it), shrinks a little with washing but more in length verses width, but pretty much keeps its size and shape. I think that the cotton here is of a thinner quality than in the previous dress (Miles of Henley - please, bring it back!). And the shape - it is more like a simple t-shirt, but long, nothing fancy, nothing like in Miles of Henley, where there was more design to it.. Now with the sizing - it is funny... For some reason, some colors are more tight fitting than others of the same size...Perhaps it has to do with the coloring process. The brown, green and white are true to size. The brown even fits a little tighter, especially in the sleeves area. So for those who want a more comfortable loose fit try to go a size up.. The raisin color - it fits so loose even in the size Small - it fits more like a Medium size. I hope this helps. )
Super Comfortable, fits great
I love this dress. I am 5 foot and 110 lbs and the fit in the shoulders, arms and waist is perfect. the length is a little long on me, but that is an easy fix. The fabric is soft and not see through. I can wear this dress lounging around the house or dress it up and wear it out on a date. Perfect. Will be buying more in different colors.
I love this maxi dress for the fall/winter. It is so basic yet holds so much potential to wear accessories or layer detailed thermals/long sleeves underneath. I like how it is not see through either, so there is no need for a slip. Additionally, the length of this maxi dress hits me just right, so I don't have to worry about it being too long! I bought it in the green and I think that is the most versatile color :)
one good...one not so good
I purchased this in the sand color a few weeks ago and love it. When I saw that the raisin color was available again, I ordered it. What a disappointment. The placket is sewn crooked and the color looks way more like the tobacco color than raisin. This one is probably going back.

Favorite dress for the season
I really enjoy wearing this dress and get many compliments. I have 3 so far but would love to buy every single color and may do just that. You only live once!!!! Very comfortable and has a classy type look to it.
Not the Miles of Henley Maxi!!!
Of course we all remember the Beloved Miles of Henley Maxi that had such a long run on Free People. Well, this is El Topo Dress does not come close to the quality and design of the Miles Maxi! (Please Free People bring back the Miles Henley) And even if I did not have it in mind when ordering this, I would still be disappointed. The fabric is too thin to be worn with any grace by itself! The shape of it is sluggish, only having some curve sewn in on the side seams. The placket button up is at least nicely sewn with cute pearl shell buttons. I ordered the Gold and the Sable. The Gold one was much smaller than the beige one! and the Gold one is much more brown than gold. I was so sad the color was wrong as it was to wear under the After the Storm Dress than has autumn leaf colors in it. I did order smalls, (for 35-26-35 115 lbs )and in the beige it would have worked as long as washing did not shrink it, which I hate having to worry about. So I think if I reorder any of these I will go for large so can put in dryer. Also if allowed to shrink up in dryer it sorta plumps up cotton Tee fabric so it seems heavier! So I feel this is one dress to safely order in the larger sizes and not be drowning in hugeness! I think.. Any way, sending them back and not decided for sure to try this dress again. Although, the black is back in stock, and who can resist a great layering dress in BLACK! Witch is the season for spooky hippies soon! So to end my gripes, I have to say, they delivered so fast it was amazing. Over all still gave it 4 STARS because it is the best basic tee shirt layering maxi considering only Free People makes this style with so many color options. (and the miles dress is gone gone, so sad)
