FP New Romantics Ol' Oprey Smocked Dress

Floral printed patchwork mini corset-style dress with lightly padded bust. Top edges of bust is trimmed with ruffled floral fabric. Zips up the back with stretchy smocking at upper back for easy fit and wear. Bottom portion of dress is horizontal stripes of pieces together fabric pieces of different colors and patterns. Lined. The boisterous pattern play of this dress brings the fun back into fashion, while still being pretty and sweet. The delicately romantic and texture heavy New Romantics collection was inspired by the dream-worthy beach views and magically hidden coves of Sardinia, Italy. *58% Cotton, 42% Acrylic *Hand Wash Cold *Import Measurements for Size Small: Length: 21 1/2" Bust (all around): 46" Armhole Drop: 8 3/4"

Nice fabric and quality
12.5.2012
" The top cups of this dress do lay a bit weird, but I have a small chest and found the fit was good. I went with my normal size 8. The smocking in the back allows for a comfortable fit. The material is nice and thick. The dress material does add just a bit of bulk to the hips, but maybe after wearing it will lay more flat. "

Really unique
11.17.2012
" I love this dress! As someone else said, the breast detail is a little strange, but if you place it right at the bra line it's okay. But it is quality as if it was home made for you. Super cute and really unusual. I got a 6 and at 5'2 and 128 lbs w/ a muscular build, it worked well and had enough room to be comfortable! I love it! Bummer I didn't get it at the lower price though.

" Maybe I have weird boobs or it could have been the dress I don't know which. I loved the fabric and it was flattering every where except the boobs. Really cute just did not work on me. "

Best Splurge of Summer
9.4.2012
" I am in LOVE with dress. The quirky blend of fabrics, detailed bodice, and exposed zipper are all adorable details. While the dress flares a bit at the bottom, it adds just the right hour-glass curve. The fitted waist and looser skirt will complement ANY body type. It’s very comfortable and if you're worried about the length it's a little short, but it’s flirty and with a pair of opaque tights any height can rock it! "

pretty juxtaposition but not for me
8.22.2012
" This dress is a pretty melange of styles..a sheet dress with an empire wast and fitted body, wonderful if FP had nailed that one) the dress was hard to zip up since the zipper protector kept getting in the way...fit size 0 well, my regular size @ 5'4", 107 and 34 A-B. I have skinny hips, though and this dress had a loose fit fit on me, which is not flattering on my body. I could probably have had it taken in, but i did not care enough for the shortness of the torso, the very short length (just like a sheet dress) and the too long straps to invest, perhaps another $75 or more on this already pricey dress just to realize i still did not care. SO if you're curvy this might be a vey cool dress, alas the funky juxtaposition of the different styles of this dress did not work for me. "

Interesting Fabrics, Great Construction
8.21.2012
" I was really intrigued by this dress when I first saw it. First, the background on the flower fabric looks a bit darker online than it is in person. It's more blue, less navy in person. The dress is very well constructed and a tad heavier than I expected. There is no boning in the bodice, but it is sturdy enough to go braless. That being said, I am generally a size 6 and I could have used a little more room for my boobs when I tried the 6 on. I'm 36C and they looked and felt a little squashed. Nothing terrible, but I wish there was more of a "cup". A size 8 would have been too big, so I that wasn't an option. I looked at this dress for a long time in the mirror. It is very 'me' and it did end up fitting nicely despite the lack of boob space. I ended up buying it. It costs a little more than I usually spend on FP dresses, but decided to go for it because it's so unique and the fit worked for me. I don't think the fit will be flattering for all body types though, so I recommend trying this on and seeing what you think. For reference, I'm 5'3", 36C, 140lbs. "
