I love this dress. It fits perfectly and the middle hits me right at my natural waist. The print is reminds me of a Rousseau painting. I purchased this item as a ModCloth employee.

Yikes! This dress looked terrific on the Modcloth website, and the generally positive reviews inspired me to take a chance on it. In person, however, the dress was a dud. Yes, the pattern is bright and fun, but the cut of the dress is not flattering for someone my height. (I'm 5'8".) The waist is simply too high; the skirt does not hang properly, making it look as if I'd grabbed a bedsheet or a blanket and wrapped it around my midsection.I also found the top of the garment more snug than the other reviewers did. I'm not particularly busty -- I'm a 32B -- but I'm not petite, either. I could barely zip it up, and worried that the zipper might jam or break with repeated wear. It's a pity the cut was so unflattering on me, as I liked the pattern and overall shape of the dress.

I didn't have much luck the first time I bought this dress, one size smaller than I would normally buy retail. But when I reordered it in a size 2--two sizes down--the fit was perfect! The skirt has some volume and the waist would probably sit high on someone much taller than me. The seam in the back, once again, did line up nicely and the colors and pattern is amazing. The dress could also look nice without a belt or a different one, but now that I've got the correct size, everything just looks a lot better than the first time and even the ribbon-belt works for me. The neckline is also not too low for work, which is a big plus in my book. Definitely would recommend, but in smaller sizes, you might want to size down two times.
Vicki - Review from ModCloth
The pattern of this dress is extremely balanced and well made, however, I felt it ran a bit big. I think if you had some color to your skin tone, it would be very pretty-unfortunately with the largeness and a light skin tone, it just didn't pop.Another consideration is that although it was an appropriate length, I am not very tall and it was just above the knee. I think a size 2-though oos, would have been better. I'd say it runs big.
Lindsay - Review from ModCloth
First I have to say the print is exquisite. It's much more saturated and vibrant in person. However, the craftsmanship is not up to par with a $200 dress. The zipper seam on the back does not line up perfectly like in the picture, the pleat seam is a little crooked, and the tie is a flimsy piece of ribbon. I'm usually a 0 or 2 in dresses and I found the zero to be a bit loose. So if you are between sizes I recommend going with your smaller size. In summary, beautiful dress, great concept, but lower quality construction than expected for the price.
