Smocked waist with drawstring tie makes for an effortless fit. Tiered high-low hem. Pair with one of our Signature Seamless styles to complete the look.
I absolutely LOVE this dress, so glad I got it before it sold out. I was wary about ordering it because of the mixed reviews, but I own a few other pieces from Spell and have been satisfied with the quality. The fabric is definitely thin, as others have mentioned, but it doesn't seem cheap to me. I think the thinness actually gives it a great drape and flow. The pattern and color are just as pictured in person, it's gorgeous. It fits a little larger on me than the model, I'm 5'2" and got an XS, which is long on me. I did notice that the fabric is rayon, so i may try hand washing it before wearing it to get it to shrink a little. Otherwise I'm thrilled with this dress and can't wait to wear it this summer.
Great with a few minor problems
I love the print of this dress. Its beautiful and vibrant. The dress itself fits very well. It runs a little big and I'm glad I bought a small instead my usual medium. I love the dress and I will enjoy wearing it because I have the jumpsuit and skirt in this print from Spell Designs. It's a little overpriced to be honest. I am a little mad Free People because the dress arrived in the mail soaking wet!!! The dress was drenched and I had to put it in the washer and dryer because it had a very odd odor. I don't know what thats about.

Pretty Dress, Very Cheap Material
I am torn, I like the fit and cut, but the fabric is very thin (not sure what can be worn under it without showing) and feels cheap. I want to love it, but it's very hard to justify the price for the quality. Also, like other reviews, it showed up in a ball in a plastic bag with some strange moisture. I hung it and it went away, but not a nice way to have an expensive dress delivered. It may be going back yet.
While this dress does look pretty in real life, it is not nearly as beautiful as the pictures. The material seems light and cheap and not worth the hefty price tag. I wore it once and it already began piling in the bottom - I wish I had just returned it when i had the chance :( I'm normally a size S, and the XS fit me with some room.. so I'd say its not for petite women. Also, when I opened up the package, the plastic was already opened up and the dress was folded in a ball. Not what I'd expect from FP.
OVERPRICED for what it is...
Looks gorgeous in photos, though the material is cheap and is already 'pilling' at the bottom which makes it unattractive. Id expect something at this price to last longer than a few wears, totally not worth the price, I've seen very simular designs elsewhere.
Pretty coloring but cheap quality
When I saw this in the catalog I HAD to have it for my rehearsal dinner for my wedding in August. However, it looks pretty cheap in person. The coloring is pretty but the fabric feels SO cheap for the expensive price tag. Also, where the buttons in the middle hit, it fully shows your skin. If you look closely in the photos you can actually see that.The armpit holes hang CRAZY long. Overall it's pretty but definitely not worth almost $400 is where I'm torn on the rating. I'm 5'6" 117 lbs and the xs is big. I'm normally an xs or 0. AND when I opened it, the dress was wet. WET! Not sure what that's about FP? Anyways, 3 out of 5 because it's pretty and great colors, but not worth the price in my opinion. And note: if you're petite DO NOT PURCHASE. Like I said, I'm 5'6", and the back literally drags on the floor without shoes. Definitely will need heels.
