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:)

Such a cute dress for summer but not enough room in the bust area for me.

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.

My first outfit! So fun.

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.

Classic preppy

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!

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!

Cute, good for a picnic or a stroll.

I love the cotton material and the embroidery, really well made. A bit still and constricting on the sleeves, but overall a good summer dress for ladies who like the vintage steez.

Flattering and cute.

I didn't love the cut of the armhole - it restricts your forward movement a bit, but overall this dress is super cute, and I would rent it again.

Super cute and high quality

This dress is very cute, but I don't like it on me. I don't normally wear shirt collars, but I liked the dress so much that I thought I'd give it a try. It's going back today.

Too Sweet for Me!

I felt like a desperate housewife in this outfit. The material is great, the fit was fabulous, and the color is pretty (navy and hot pink). The look is very 1950's housewife though. I normally wear edgier looking outfits, but I wanted to try out a Draper James outfit so I went for it. No one complimented me in this outfit, and I think it is because I wore to my office and not a tupper ware party.

Great summer work dress

Beautiful summer dress for work. The fabric is lovely and the red eyelet details are so pretty. Fabric is thick enough to be warm in an air conditioned office, but light enough to be worn outside. Could also be worn to a social event with friends. Size 8 was comfortable, fit well in the shoulders and at the waist, and flowing elsewhere.

Cute dress.

The pattern and colors of this dress were very cute. The fabric was great for a hot, humid day. My only complaints were that the chest area was too tight so I had to leave a few buttons undone and wear a tank under it and the arms and shoulders were super tight. I wasn't able to move my arms much.

Dressing up for life

Adorable dress- I received a lot of compliments. It was also very comfortable and HAS POCKETS!! Loved that! The only thing that was a surprise is that there is a long portion of the dress at the bottom, that does not button. It creates a slit that borders on not work appropriate, but I made due.

Amazing-comfy, cute, versatile

Love-wore to work, casual BBQ, out and about doing errands on weekend. Very comfortable, cool, great for summer. length and high neck and sleeves keep it modest. Comfy and flattering nipped waste with more full skirt. If you are curvy (small waist, rounder on bottom)-this would be great. If petite, could size down as skirt is on the full side, might swallow up a little person :) got MANY compliments
