Low maintenance dress

Wore this dress to an all-day event and it was super low maintenance. I'm usually a 6 in most dresses, but often an 8 if fitted-waist, so I sized up one and it was perfect. But I would say this dress is true to size. Colors are dark blue/white, with dark pink accent. Pockets:)

So this is love...

So this is what makes life divine... I love this dress so much. It fits like it was tailored. After 2 years of renting, this is top 5. If I was postpartum, it would be #1 just for fit and convenience. My waist is 30" and bust is 35" and I had no room to spare, so if you're bordering on a 10, size up. I don't think there's anything to lose in sizing up.

Love! So comfortable and so many compliments.

This is super comfortable. I wore on a warm day to work and even with the sleeves, it was comfortable despite the heat outside. I ate outside in the park comfortably wearing this - and received so many compliments!

Cute yet composed

This dress is well made and has a very flattering cut. I rented this to wear to a rodeo and fair in hot conditions and it was a good pick. I also ended up wearing it to work and to church and brunch and it worked in all places. The picture was taken after all these wearings so it holds up well. At times it felt costume-y, but it also recieved several compliments from complete strangers.

I got this dress in my first group of items for RTR unlimited! I wore it to work and received SO many compliments. It's comfortable and seems super high quality in person. The details make it really special! You can definitely dress it up or down.

Tailored look, fun and compliment worthy. It fit perfectly and red and white accessories brought it to life. Wedges by Steve Madden.

Fun dress for brunch

Ran true to size for me in that everything fit well but I couldn't really move my arms up and down because there is no stretch whatsoever in the fabric and so it can be slightly constricting up top. Not a problem for me because I wore it to brunch and didn't need to move too much. But could be an issue for ladies more well endowed than me.

Great fit except sleeves

I have found that Draper James sleeves are too snug for me. The rest of the dress fit like a dream and was very flattering. Good quality fabric and an extra hook at the waist to prevent gaping.

Good fit, flattering, just felt a little too Little House on the Prairie with the length, sleeves, and the gingham. Loved for a rental, but wouldn't have purchased it.

Fun and stylish

A great dress, with pockets, flattering, comfortable, but gives you sleek lines. I usually prefer a modern and sleek look, and this is a very modern take on gingham.

So many compliments!

I wore this on a super busy day of meetings and every single person complimented me on this dress. It's incredibly comfortable, room in the arms (sometimes this style of sleeve is tight on me), and thicker fabric so it's got a more structured look. I wore it with nude sandals and no jewelry - this dress was enough to be striking all on its own

Preppy cutesy

I didn't end up wearing this- it wasn't my style. A little childish for my liking Runs true to size maybe even a tad large comfortable but a lot of fabric Very modest- preppy collared look Pink navy blue in color Good for spring summer days

Sweet summery dress

I rented this for a couple of family-friendly outdoor parties and also wore it to work. The red eyelet detail really makes it unique from other button-down gingham dresses. Fit was a little tight on top, and I have a relatively small bust; might not work for someone with a larger chest.

Very flattering!

Being a busty girl, I'm usually very wary of anything that's a button up. This fit really well though. No troubles in the bust at all and the fit was very flattering. Super cute!

:)

Very 50s retro vibe, darling print w red embroidery on sleeve and hem. I'd give it perfect marks except that the waist elastic is in an odd place, not on natural waist but a bit higher on ribs which makes it look slightly odd, but so darling I wore it two times despite that.

Smaller than last Draper James dress

I'm a 36D and this middle button was MAXXED out. I could have left the bust buttons open and worn a bralette and had a fine time at a cocktail party but I wanted to wear it to work.... would have had a "fat guy in a little coat" situation where I could not hug or lift arms very far. It's going back without a wear but hot damn this was a cute dress. Last Draper James in a 14 Fit very different than this

Cutest shirtdress ever

Really really was tempted to buy this dress. It's comfortable and can be dressed up or down so easily. I wore it with a belt and thought it worked better than without. The pockets are great and the pink stitching really pops. One of my favorite rentals.

Really cute!

This dress is adorable! It fits true to size but the buttons were a little stretched across my chest (34D). No biggie, I just could push my shoulders back to the extreme. Other notes: the last button on the dress is oddly high up- see where I'm pointing in the photo. I'm 5'9" and if it was any higher, I would have needed to pin it for decency. Also, the embroidery is a bright pink (thought it was red), which is nice too. Will probably rent again, but may size up for a little extra chest room.

Super cute summery print

I liked the style of this dress. It moved easily and was comfortable. Pulled slightly at the bust so I wore a bra without padding and it was fine.

The perfect summer dress

O-M-G! Did not think I'd love this dress as much as I did. The top fits very small so glad I ordered the size up. The bust and waist and sleeves all run small so please size up! I usually am a 4 or 6 and the 6 was just right. This dress was amazing - I wore it with flats to work and white sandals to a barbecue. LOVED how wide the skirt was because it made the dress super flattering and also kept me cool in hot summer weather. Would definitely rent again!

It's more navy gingham and hot pink embroidery than the picture would make you believe.

Perfect summer dress. There's still a little extra room in the waist for movement/eating/boobs. I'm a 34ddd and didn't have the awkward boob pucker tooo much with the buttons. I wore more of a bralette and that helped the situation but can also be safety pinned. Highly recommended for any summer occasion.

All In the Detail!

Loved this dress! Normally wear a size 8 but sometimes these style dresses run large (didn't see a zipper on the model). 6 fit perfectly! Wore this to work and wore silver flats. Didn't realize that the gingham pattern was a dark navy blue (maybe I didn't read the description very well) but still very pretty overall. Loved the detailing in the arms and hemline and received a lot of compliments. Very feminine/1920s.

RTR Team Review

I love this feminine button down dress by Draper James. Running small with no stretch, I recommend wearing a size up for your primary size. This style is fitted at the natural waist and loose at the hips. It works best for A-C cup sizes. You are able to wear a standard bra with this dress. At 5’9”, the length hit below the knee on me. This dress is a very easy wear to a daytime event. The pink eyelet detail adds a special touch. Pair with a sandal and a pink pair of earrings to complete your outfit!
