American made sleeveless crepe mini dress, featuring a swingy shape and a bohemian paisley print.
Do not wash!!
I am a frequent free people shopper and this had to have been one of my favorite dresses. I got the dress in an xs in the black white and olive color that is no longer listed and after washing it for the first time it completely shrunk into a top! Im so disappointed because I followed the instructions and now my dress is ruined. I love love love free people so much but this was a let down. Are we suppose to dry clean all 100% rayon items to avoid this in the future?

A Shrunken Shame
This was my absolute favorite dress when I bought it in the store. I got it in the XS in the black with orange and red paisley. I avoided washing for as long as I could and then I got a drink spilled on me. Like everyone else here, I followed the directions and washed my dress machine wash cold on delicate and I laid it out to dry. It is now about 3 inches shorter and barely covers my boobs in the front (I'm only a 34B). It's so short, I really can't bend over in it. The material even feels different. Much more textured and crepe-y. Might try what another reviewer suggested (re-wetting and tugging on the bottom to lengthen). Such a shame because this was my absolute favorite and it received so many compliments. For the price, I definitely expected better. Also would've expected better wash instructions that actually worked. Unrealistic to own a piece of clothing that cannot be cleaned. So sad right now.

never wash it
This dress fit me perfectly and I got so many compliments on it. But like everyone else, I washed it and it completely shrunk to the size of a tank top! I hand washed it and let it air dry and it still shrunk. However, I did wash it again and tried to stretch out the fabric. This worked pretty well, but the fabric still doesn't have the same texture as before. Pretty disappointing.

DO NOT WASH!!!!!!!!
Before washing I would give this dress 10 stars! My #1 favorite dress I have ever bought from FP and I have so so many dresses from here....HOWEVER I wore this dress 3 times before I decided it was time for a clean and I washed it according to the tag - Hand Wash Cold - and the dress is completely ruined. It shrunk and looks awful on me now, even the fabric feels different. I was about to buy this dress is the rusty color and then when I washed it I changed my mind. Am I just not suppose to wash it at all? i want this dress back to normal so bad. I got so many compliments and was planning to make it a staple in my summer wardrobe this year. I love FP and spend so much money here but I have truly never been so disappointed :(

Literally was a tank top
I got the xs in the mail today and was super excited. The fabric is gorgeous and so is the pattern. However, when I tried on the dress it fit like a tank top - my underwear was completely exposed. I measured the dress and it was only 22 inches long!!! I feel like I got a dress that someone shrunk in the dryer, and I'm very disappointed because I love everything else about the dress and was very excited to wear it.

Soon to be my favorite!
I love this dress. I purchased the black and wore it with a tight fitting white slip under along with black cowboy boots one day, another with some strappy sandals. My daughter keeps taking it and wearing it with a bandeau. Great material for a warm day. There was only a medium available when I ordered so I got it, I usually wear a S for FP. Love the length the M gave me, but think the S may have been better, but now that I hear about it shrinking, I am glad I got the M. It is going to be my go to summer dress! Waiting for the other color to come back in.
I have the dress in black andI love it!! I throw it on over a bandeau making it's a perfect quick an easy spring/summer outfit. This dress is light and gives you room to breathe, especially on those super hot days. Fits great! I'm 5"1 and got an XS.
DO NOT wash this dress!
I am a long time and frequent FP shopper and rarely shop elsewhere. I typically wear an xs and I am 5'4 120lbs. I tried this dress on at a store and was instantly in LOVE. I wore it once and washed it, of course, on cold settings and just warm-tumble dry. NOW what I have is a very expensive tank top because it has shrunken about 3 inches off of the length! I no longer have the tags or receipt so I am unable to return it and am SOO bummed. This was one of my favorites prior to the shrinkage.

I love how the dress looks, but its a very thin, loose fitting dress. Unless you don't mind showing a lot of skin and feeling like you don't have much material on, then maybe this dress isn't for you. Warning, don't wear in the wind! I ordered it in a small, and I am 5'7.
