Runs Large & Color Is not Exact
This dress runs very large! I was happy when I read reviews before purchasing because if I had ordered my normal size medium, it would've been way too big. I ordered a size XS and it fits perfect. It is not a fitted dress, but so cute on! I agree with the other reviews that the material wrinkles easily, but still worth the purchase. Also, something to note: the color of the dress seems more of a burnt red, than cherry.
a couple of qualms
I'll give it four stars because despite its flaws, it's a show-stopping piece, especially in red. Firstly, it has two buttons at the collar which are pretty difficult to close. Between me and one other person it took about five minutes to button up the collar which is pretty insane. Also, it has two clasps that close the dress's keyhole opening which tend to come undone while I'm walkin. You'd be better off just sewing that part up. Like a few other reviewers stated, the dress was severely wrinkled upon delivery but once I ironed it, I didn't have any problems during the day. So I did have some issues with this dress but it's undeniably flattering. I love the red color even though it isn't as bright as the picture showed. Might buy it in some other colors, we'll see!!g
LOVE THIS DRESS- I bought two
Order a size down from what you usually wear. The red color isn't as red as I had hoped- I returned that one and got a size small in the pink and white! Love them both :) Perfect for spring, but also a great option for when it gets chilly with some tights and heeled booties!
AMATEUR sewing...by a 10 year old
I've waited for this dress to became available in my size and finally got it. But when it arrived, my smile quickly turned to a frown... the black top stitching all over this dress is crooked-wish I could attach pictures. Not to mention the cuff on the sleeves are enormous! Whats frustrating is that it takes 8 minutes to button the collar. I'm thinking this was made poorly by an AMATEUR Seamstress!!! really sad because this is a cute style for the springtime.
Hi littleMonke, I'm sorry to hear about your dress! Someone from our team will be in touch with you about this! -Free People
Cheap fabric but very hard to tell as I received this wadded up in battered tissue paper with wrinkles on top of wrinkles. Very sad to receive something in this condition-looks TTS but too short for me. Have to return.
Cute and classy
This 40's vibe dress is so cute. It's long enough for us tall girls but not too long. The look is so classy it could be worn to church but sassy enough for a day out on the town. Totally in love with it. I bought it in the red color which has the cute stitching detail. I felt that the dress was a bit roomy. I usually get a medium in fp, but was able to size down to a small.
The dress arrived very wrinkled and so I tried to put the iron on the appropriate setting for the type of fabric. It didn't seem to do much good and I was afraid I would scorch the material. I got it fairly smooth but the first time I wore it, it wrinkled up in the back pretty badly when I sat down. Otherwise the dress is very cute and the fabric is heavy enough that it isn't see through. I had to go with the xs as the small was just too bulky and heavy on me. The xs is a close fit - probably as intended for someone who is not 5'10" tall. The shipping was super fast!
