Loads of compliments

I wore this dress on 2 occasions: work and then on thanksgiving. I received lots of compliments all around! Very comfy as well. At 5'2" it was the perfect maxi length. Highly recommend for petites

Good everyday dress

Good everyday dress. Compliments. Easy. Perfect fit. Mid weight fabric. I originally ordered it for a month-long trip but ended up just wearing once to work then returning as didn't love it enough to be stuck with it for a whole month. Not high quality.

Runs a little Big

This dress is stylish but I'd say it runs a little big Arms Fit good but in the Body wish it was more Fitted it was a little loose. There is a slit in the front in which you have to be careful about Lightweight not too hot Overall pretty dress

Cute dress - much better off the hanger

Needed a dress for a last minute holiday event and found this in the store. Larger than my normal size, but the detail at the waist was a great camouflage. Had passed over many times on the app but it is much more flattering on than expected.

Loved this dress

I love Free People clothing, and this dress did not disappoint. Flowy and beautiful for everyday wear or a special occasion. The dress is loose in some areas, but felt a little tighter in the back and shoulders for me, I'm glad I got the size larger than I normally wear.

Different pattern

Wore this dress to work. Positive was that the pattern is unique. Material is pretty thin and was right across an ample bust.

It's a nice dress, true to the picture. Unfortunately it was not flattering on me, but it would be great on someone with curves.

Unique pattern, good work option for something slightly different than the norm

Not my favorite, but appreciated that this dress was anything but basic. Fit was fine, though I wouldn't go so far as to call it flattering.

Bright colors and flattering fit

4 fit nicely, might size down to 2 next time to make more form fitting by the waist. Comfortable and easy to wear

Perfect for work and play

At first I thought "This is a lot." The pattern is very bandana-ish but it looked great on. Material is slightly heavy but moves nicely. Sleeves were a little tight at the wrists even though I have absurdly small wrists. Fun enough for night time hijinks yet work-appropriate.

Flowy Bandana

This dress was ok. The slit in front is a bit high and the buttons end pretty high, but only noticeable when walking. The top fit well with no gaping at the buttons. It is a little difficult to get on due to the knot at the front (do your hair after you get it on.)

Perfect to dress up for Western theme

At first I thought the size 6 was too small because this fabric doesn't stretch at all and although the buttons are functional from top to bottom, the waist (and cute detail) do not come undone so you definitely have to shimmy into it. Once I had it on, perfect dress! Very comfortable plus the buttons allow you to adjust the bust and leg coverage. This is definitely not a dress for a wallflower--the print is fun and I wore it to a Western themed awards banquet. Received so many compliments. Could easily see this as a regular part of my wardrobe. Easy to wear with regular undergarments. Fabric doesn't wrinkle easily and is flowy and flattering. Definitely recommend!

Bold print, great fit

I'm always weary of maxi dresses considering I'm 5'1, but this was perfect. Dressed it up with platforms and down with white sneakers. Loved it and got many compliments.

Flowy

I am a true size 4 but decided to order the size 6 based on other reviews that the dress ran small. The larger size was roomy but it still fell in all of right places and was super comfortable!

Even better than you think!

Loved wearing this easy glowing dress. Wore during the day to see a Broadway show and because of the sleeves, I didn't need a jacket on cold theatre....and I wasn't too hot in the oppressive NYC heat. I dressed it down with high top sneakers but could totally see this with boots or heels. Oh and I added a little gold belt for some flair. Loved!

Like not love

Slit is a little aggressive for work. I was flighting it while walking outside and upstairs. Super cute otherwise. Fabric is a little hot. Better for spring or fall.

Beautiful dress. Cuff was tight so I riled up the sleeves. Got many compliments. Usually dresses like this don't fit across my chest but this one did!

Great day to night dress!

Wore this dress on vacation. It was a beautiful pattern. The material is light and easy, so the dress feels very comfortable despite the length and full skirt. The waist was a little bit big - I'm usually a 24/25 in jeans and the waist on the dress was a little loose. I think it would have looked more flattering with a belt, but I happened to not have one with me. Overall, I would definitely rent again, this dress paired so easily with sneakers for daytime, or heels and jacket at night.

Really pretty but if you're busty......

Size up if you are larger on top. I almost always order a small or a 6 in Free People but with the button down, I think I would have had a button popping situation if I had worn my normal size.

Great color & fun take on a shirt dress, with the flattering waist twist.

I'm a little short so it was a lot of pattern - rolling the sleeves up made a big difference - less overwhelmed by the print.

Free people dress

Pros- beautiful colors, print, material in general. Pockets! Cons- fits a little weird. A little tight in the shoulders and chest. Has a nice cinch in the waist, but if you have a small waist and larger bust this probably won't give the ideal fit. Waist cinch is not ajustable. Overall a nice dress for the right body shape.

Free People runs small, but I could've worn my regular size (6). A little loose on top.

Comfortable alternative to my typical remote-working wardrobe.

This fit well and complimented my body type and height. The fabric was not as giving as most Free People items, but it is a good dress to wear in-between seasons (winter/spring).

High waist (lower ribcage), pockets, fabric flows but has a nice weight to it.

Bright color and flattering length

This dress was true to size and was flattering, too. I wore it to a work-related dinner/dance in a rustic setting.
