My favorite dress
I love this dress!!! I can't say it enough. Comfortable, easy to wear. I've worn it to picnics and to parties. I only found out about it when the rust and sand colors were being offered. I scooped them up in duplicate. I would have every color if I could get my hands on them. I've been able to track a few on Ebay, but I would rather get them from Free People. Great dress! I am 5'2", 103lbs, column build and the xs fits me best, but I can wear a small too. The length is great, on the long size, but an easy fix. I'll always take too long over too short. Besides, this dress would not work if it were too short. It needs to skim the ground. The fabric is very soft, and lightweight, and slightly revealing the way it shows your curves. The sleeves do run narrow, but not a problem. They kind of hug your arms. I find that very comfortable. A pleasure to wear. A note to Free People: Please, please bring this dress back in all colors and more. If you were to change anything, you should consider the label. The fabric is so fine that the stitching in the label starts to look like holes and then it starts to tear over time. Any repair shows. You should print the label on the fabric. It is also more comfortable not to have a tag. Otherwise keep everything exactly the same. Wonderful dress. - If I could make one more suggestion, I would ask that you consider selling it in two fabric weights. The current, which is wonderful and good for spring/summer. And then, perhaps you could offer it in a slightly heavier fabric for fall/winter, not too heavy though. Thanks for the great dress! Sell me more!
LOVE!! SOOOO COMFY & FLATTERING
Like most everyone else, I have nothing but good things to say about this dress. I bought in the cream (sand?) color, size Small. For reference, I'm 5'6, 140 and it's a great fit. Tried the XS and it was way too tight in the arms/shoulders. Medium may have worked for a more relaxed fit, but Small seems good all around (fairly fitted look). The length is perfect too, I will wear with minimal to no heel. Material is thick and quality and is not sheer at all. My only complaint is that it has been sold out for so long! I'm dying to buy in another color or two. This dress can be worn for anything, comfort around the house, casual for a regular day, or even a little dressed up for dinner. Good for all seasons too....as long as it's mild winter or summer. BUY IT!
Terrible quality control!
Really like these, I have two. I have only worn each of them once because I needed to get them hemmed! Finally decided to get to my tailor but thought I should wash them first. I wash in cold water, delicate. The grey was fine, the cranberry cinched up all over the place in the front! It looks all gathered :( completely unwearable. Very sad, and seems like quality is very unpredictable
Hi Drea1, We are sorry to hear about this. Someone will be in touch soon. - Free People
Favorite garment in my closet.
I am in so love with this dress. I have it in three colors and it's my favorite winter staple. It is suuuuper flattering and also so warm and cozy. The fabric is the perfect weight and the way the seams come together on the back is really cool. I get compliments on it all the time and am so happy to have it! My only wish is that it came in black so I could have that color too!
I have another henley-style maxi dress from FP (El Topo) and this is the better one. Pluses: -- perfect scoop neck -- shaped back is very flattering -- very well made and careful stitching -- the orange is delightful -- a true orange You do have to trim it if you're petite. I'm not great this and I'm careless, but even I found that to be pretty easy.
I'm 5'4", 120lbs, 34C and I got a size small in the green. It fits great. You definitely need some spanks or no show undies with this one though. I liked the longer length of the sleeves. I thought I was going to have to trim off the bottom but the length was actually good. It brushes the floor but it looks fine. I did feel like the shoulders were a little weird but nothing I cant look past. I like that the material is a little thicker. This makes a great dress to wear in the cooler months.
Multi Purpose Maxi
Love love love this piece! The fabric is so soft and cozy...very good quality. I can wear this around the house, to bed or dress it up with a jacket, scarf, belted, jewelry accessories...it's endless. Actually very flattering too! Along backside seams really compliment figure!!! PLEASE MAKE THIS DRESS IN BLACK AGAIN!!! Or the OLIVE color would be good too. I have it in the Stone color which I love. This is a Winner!
I want to buy more colors!!
dress is beyond comfortable, flows easily over your curves it is very long but a tape measure and pins and a good pair of scissors you cut it to the length you desire, since its an exposed seemed dress it looks fabulous, I have the rust and the cream and am desperate to get more color!!!
Beautiful dress for cooler weather!
This is lovely. The sleeves are nice and long, as is the hem - actually, the hem is so long I'm probably gonna have to shorten it just a tick so it won't be all stained and ragged! I love super long dresses. It fits quite well, though more like a small than a medium. What you can't tell from the pictures is that the fabric is surprisingly sturdy - I probably wouldn't wear it on any but the coolest of summer days around here. In the fall and winter it's gonna be perfect. It looks like you could dress it up a bit too if you're going somewhere nice.
