So femme set featuring an easy, flowy printed midi dress and an attached bandeau top with a front knotted detail.
made it work
I agree with the reviewer's that say that the dress is way too big – I ended up ordering a size down from my normal size, and it fit pretty well all around except for the straps. I ended up taking advice from another reviewer and altering the dress by sewing the straps a couple of inches at the top and folding them over. I also found a bra that opens in the front and sewed the bandeau to it to make sure that I had enough support to wear this even with 34D's. It took a little work, but it was totally worth it and now the dress is perfect. At the sale price it is good if you ar willing to put in the time and effort to make it work.e
Misleading but workable
I'd love to meet the person who fits in this kind of dress because it's absolutely the oddest cut ever. It doest not look like as seen on the model. It's awkwardly loose even as a size 0... Now that I think about it, it looks like the model is compensating for what it seems like a really poorly designed dress. Yet, I loved the pattern and color palette of the dress so much I thought why not alter it myself. I had to cut AT LEAST 6 inches from the straps and 6 inches from the waist so I look like an adult person rather than a little kid in their mom's dress... Anyhow, after the changes, it looks great and I now understand why it's on sale in the first place.
Loved it but disappointed!
I was very excited to get this, and when I did, it was really nice fabric and had a beautiful design but was huge on me like the other users said! I wear a 0 in most things from free people, but this was huge on me (both parts). Size down if you order it!
gorgeous dress - FOR TALL PEOPLE
I saw this dress in the store and just tried it on cuz the two pieces made it seem so interesting and surprise it ended up looking gorgeous on me. Free people to me always tends to run a little big and this fit close to perfect just a teeny weeny bit tighter and it wouldve been perfect. I definitely wouldn't recommend buying if your short because the dress was definitely constructed for someone with a long torso and long legs. Otherwise the plunge will fit awkwardly and as the dress is a midi itll just look like its falling off of you. But if your tall like me , BUY ITT
work with it
I loved this dress because of the original design. It is overall well made and I love the colors but yes the torso is too long and the bandeau top too loose. I chose not to send it back but had the torso pulled up & gathered a little at the shoulders and straps added to the bandeau to tie around the neck. I love it, many compliments and perfect for what I wanted it for.
not what is pictured
I completely agree with the other reviewer. This dress looked so pretty and ended up being not what was pictured at all! The bralette was so loose, but the dress itself was tight, and the straps were way too long. Just fit issues all around! It was so odd bc the straps were so long so the buttons didn't start until almost my belly button! Such a shame that this is going back
Beautiful online- terrible in person
This dress fits nothing like it looks online. The colors and fabric are beautiful, but it runs big and long. I ordered a size 4 (I'm usually a 6 but size down in FP because things tend to be looser) and the shoulders/straps sag to my belly button and the attached bralette is too big even with the smocking. I know FP fits can be tricky, but this purchase actually made me quite upset because the reality is completely different in the picture- very misleading.
