Easy cotton dress featuring front buttondown and full, drapey skirt. Raw hems and effortless fit. Hip pockets. Unlined.
Not as Pictured!
I read the other reviews saying that the skirt has much more fabric than pictured, but I thought how much more could it really be? Oh my gosh, a LOT! The skirt is just too much! Not only is the skirt way too full, but all the fabric collects at the sides. It makes you look like you have the biggest hips ever. There are also set in pockets in the side seams which just add to the bulk. As if the skirt weren't enough I got my usual size Small and the bodice was just huge on me. It looks fitted in the photo, but on me it was so loose and gaping. An oversized bodice paired with a huge skirt just made a really unflattering dress on me. Returning this one.
I got this dress in the blue striped and I absolutely love it! When I saw the reviews I was shocked I think it fits perfect! I am a bit curvier so I like that's it's a flowy party dress! I wore it for Easter and it was lovely! I got a medium (my usual Fp size) and I'm a size 8 and 34DD for reference! I want to buy it another color! It does have a lot of material but if you want a fun dress that you can twirl around in this summer then this is a winner!! :)
If possible try this on before purchasing
I am just over 5'7 and I ordered a medium. in the tonal white stripe. The quality of the dress is nice and the material is nice but there is so much fabric in the dress that the skirt was reminiscent of a child's party dress and when I put it on I felt ridiculous . I tried adding a thick caramel leather belt and that just made it look worse. It is rare that I ever need to return a FP dress but this one really didn't work for me. This dress might work for someone who can carry the 'pouf'
I'm 5'4, 110 pounds with a 23 inch waist and the XS was INSANELY loose. To get the look in the photos I would have to get the dress altered, by like SIX inches at least, which for the price is just not worth it. I like the fabric, it's a nice soft cotton. The dress was also a good bit pouffier in the skirt than it looks in the pictures. I ordered the off white, which looks like a muslin cloth color in person, a bit drab, but it was the fit that killed it. Definitely returning this. Even with a belt it wouldn't look quite right. The length was just short enough so fine for that, but I'm also not tall so could be too short for some people.
