Too Short in the Back!
super cute dress, but when it came in and i tried it on, it was 2 or 3 inches shorter in the back than in the front!! i was very upset since I loved this dress and wanted to wear it, but it truly fits like a shirt in the back. Fine from the front, but would not recommend for anyone who wants to wear it as a dress.
I got this dress in a size small and it is the perfect length-- reaching just above the knee. It is a shift dress and I ordered a size up for comfort as it does have a constricting neck. The only drawback is the hem which does produce many strings that you have to cut off. Overall amazing. ,
Will Be Returning. POOR quality
I never shop at Free People but decided to give it a try. I received this dress today and was very disappointed. I am a fashion merchandiser and the quality is awful. There are snags, uncut threads (and I'm not talking just a few here and there), and buttons falling off, etc. This garment is poorly constructed, uneven in cut and in the sewing, and is cheaply made. The photo on this website does not depict the garment accurately and these issues are NOT acceptable on a $118 dress. Cute design but horribly made. I will be returning.
Hi arenae! I'm Sorry to hear about your dress! Someone will be in touch with you! -Free People
Cute but had to return!
I wanted so much to love this!! It is so gorgeous and well made-- however it is too short! Definitely not long enough to wear without tights (which I thought looked funny with tights)! Wish it had the length of the Annka slip!
Order for Length Not Fit
I followed the other reviews and ordered an XS. I am by no means an XS person so I was a tad nervous. However, at just under 5'4 this was the perfect length (past my fingertips) and it fits perfectly. It's really a beautiful and romantic dress.
I have ordered several pieces thru FP in the last month getting ready for Spring and, I have to say, this piece is so far my favorite! I ordered in black and it is gorgeous! The detailed stitching is so delicate and the back cut out is so adorable! I don't even mind the unstitched hem. I love every little detail to this piece and recommend it to anyone. Most everyday the past couple of weeks I have worn my new FP outfits and people ask me all the time wear I buy my clothes. I just love, love, love your company and plan on ordering many more items from FP!
After all of the fantastic reviews I had to get this dress for myself (I had been eyeing it for a while). I bought the elderberry color and it is beautiful! The details on the dress are great, and obviously the back of the dress is gorgeous. My one complaint is how rough the bottom of the dress is. It looks like the fabric was roughly cut and there are lots of strings hanging down from the bottom. It is a beautiful dress but seems weird how "rough" the bottom looks. Obviously keeping and going to try and cut all of the strings off, but wish I didn't have to! :)
I ran into this dress in the store and didn't plan on buying anything but I tried on the baby blue and it looked amazing on me which I was surprised because sometimes I feel my boobs stick out too much with free people tops, I have dirty blonde hair and blue eyes and it really brought out my features.I actually felt it made me look pretty. I am usually an xs in free people tops but the neck on the xs was too tight. I thought I would have to pass but I tried on the small and the neck was much looser and not uncomfortable at all. I totally recommend this dress. I'm gonna wear it as a tunic with jeans in the winter.
