J.Crew Talitha Patchwork Dress: Love It or Hate It?

I am not a huge fan of patchwork on clothing. It just reminds me too much of wearing a quilt - no offense to quilts! I am, however, a fan of maxi dresses, which is why I am torn about this J.Crew Talitha Patchwork Dress, $500, brought to my attention by SaraSmile. I love the strong silhouette of the dress but I can do without the lengthy pattern. Still, I am undecided. What about you gals?

yes, it would be a little hard to pull off bcuz of the length, but I think the solid blue top hem and empire belt cut off the business of the pattern - I want this dress!

I love love love this dress! I first saw it in a J Crew catalog and was stunned because I used to make dresses like this--more than 4 years ago. The price is what it costs to make a dress of that nature...lots of seams and accuracy in sewing techniques. I don't think they made a log of these dresses either. The Playa dress they made was similar and came in a short length. I love dresses like this, they make me feel like a princess, but yeah, you definitely get a lot of looks of wonderment.

I love free pattern items but I think this has a little too much going on.

If this was shorter, it'd be cute. It's just too overpowering as a maxi dress.

I saw a simliar dress on a girl at a Phish concert - and she made it herself. Not very original. That was probably one of the few places you could wear it. They're a few years too late on this one.

I think its great. Normally, I have to squeeze my large rear into something to make it look smaller ... now with this the skinny girls can look bigger and I don't have to worry about the control top ;-)

Besides having waaay too much going on, only someone with the bust of a 12 year old boy could wear that dress. So tired of clothes with no room for boobs.

i think it's cute but it would be wearable if it were shorter, like a mini-dress. and belted! or chain straps! ow ow!

I agree it definitely needs to be shorter, though at this length it would get someone a lot of attention!

I agree with a lot of the others- its just too much long and overwhelming...anyone got a pair of scissors? i used to have a quilt similar to that on my bed and im having flashbacks- way too much fabric.

This is just too busy for anything but models. Real women could never pull it off.

Who could wear this without looking ridiculous? Maybe a model... other than that, no way. This isn't a dress for real life.
