Anthropologie Petite Maeve Openwork Shirtdress // Size Petite 00
This dress piqued my interest after reading the reviews, which were full of petites raving about the fit and claims it ran small, so I had to order it and see for myself. I’d agree this dress runs small, and am happy to see it comes close to being a perfect fit on my frame. There is perhaps an inch of extra fabric at the waist, but it’s hardly noticeable thanks to the nice seam job done to sculpt the bodice, as well as the fun full skirt (which always helps to visually whittle a waist). The length is too long on me, but seems like a pretty easy alteration despite the eyelet fabric (the eyelet layer is finished with a small, simple fold-over hem).
Length aside, this dress is fully lined through the body, and has side pockets which are always a plus in my book. I wish it came in more colors, because I could see this being a really nice airy summer dress if it were white.
The approximate measurements of size Petite 00 are as follows:
Sleeve Length: 16.5″
Overall Length: 36.5″
