Style: 34810374 Colour:
Sleeveless cotton mini dress with a bohemian floral print and easy, swingy shape. Fully lined.
Adorable and effortless springtime/summer dress!
It seems like the negative reviews were mostly for the other color - I got the ochre and I absolutely love it! The heavier fabric ensures that it's not sheer, and the length is perfect for those not wanting to have to layer with bicycle shorts underneath (I'm 5'8" and I purchased the medium). Although I have a collection of fun strappy FP bras that I enjoy wearing with tops and dresses that have low-slung armpit openings, I was even able to wear this without a bra. Perfect summer dress to toss on effortlessly and it is so very cute on. I look forward to pairing it with my new tall black suede lace-up boots next time.
I bought this dress in the ochre colour way and its super pretty! The colours are nice and vibrant and this dress can be dressed up or down. I noticed that there are a few bad reviews for this dress, i think thats mainly due to differences in the colour pictured vs colour upon arrival for the vanilla colour way. The material is good quality cotton, not super thick, making it light enough for summer and it also has an inbuilt slip layer underneath. I bought the size small and it fits well and the length hits me at about the same height as the models photos, my measurements are 36", 26", 36" for reference and I'm 5' 9".
I was so disappointed with this dress. Like other reviewers have stated, it looks like it has gold detailing but is really more of a brown color. The dress looks like super cheap linen fabric with the design stamped on.. The fabric is scratchy and the colors are very flat. It looked like a bad knock off version of the dress displayed on the model :( I sent mine back for a refund that very same day.
Favorite FP Piece!
I get a lot of Free People items and this one (ochre) has got to be my favorite by far. It runs a bit large, so sizing down is a good idea. The material is muslin which isn't soft, but it isn't scratchy or heavy either. I also love the loose fit, but how it also covers my chest so no bra is even really needed. Very clean look and appropriate for nice outings/weddings. A little bummed I purchased it a week before it went on sale, but I can't even be mad because I love it so much!
Unique Beautiful Print
I lucked out as a Med was returned and became available in the Vanilla Combo. So pretty! 9 times out of 10 I am usually a Large at 5 ft 8, 160 lbs (38B or 40B), but with the other reviews ordered the Medium and it is perfect. I am finding many FP tops/dresses that I take a Med. Still a little loose around the sides and waist, but this is the style. Definately do not need to do leggings under it as it is plenty long. Gorgeous!!
Awesome pattern. Too loose
I'm generally partial to tighter fitting dresses but the design/fabric on this one was so pretty. The fabric is decent (not the best I've come across with FP though), with a thing white lining on the inside. Its way too roomy though. If you like that look then it's probably good, i'm sure it would be flattering on girls with curves, which I do not have. Might keep and get altered to fit tighter.
Stiff & Large
The dress is made of muslin. If you don't know, muslin is a light-weight, stiff fabric that doesn't relax into soft cotton. There is some extra fabric on the dress for pockets, but unfortunately it is unflattering on the body because the rough material makes it stick out very far. I felt like I was wearing a table cloth in it. It also runs large, so if you do buy this, size down! Also, the blue dress looks like it might have metallic embellishments, but in person it is a dark brown color.
This is a fun, simple dress that can be worn with sandals or boots. It runs a bit big, but doesn't look big on, if that makes sense. The fabric is not flowy, it's sort of "linen stiff", but doesn't look that way, hard to describe. With the price and I will be wearing this a lot.
I just got this today in the ochre color and it is SO pretty. Even the fabric itself is beautiful! I'm usually a medium in Free People and it fit perfect. It's fun to twirl in, and it's a nice length; you can bend over and you'll be covered. (I'm 5'7) I really recommend it. I might just have to get the ivory too
I ordered this dress in the vanilla combo and it looks like there is shiny gold and a little bit of sky blue on this dress which I loved thats why I ordered it, but the gold is not gold it is a brown color and it has a dark blue color to it. Sending it back, hated it. Also it was very lose and way too big. Not worth the money. Not ordering from here again! :( very very disappointed.
