This is such a pretty dress. It’s modest and I love the color.
Oh my gosh I love this dress! The fit is beyond perfect and actually really super comfortable too! Fits just like the Madeline dress!;)
I finally got to wear this beautiful dress! Yellow is my favorite color and I love this dress! So pretty and very comfortable.
This is my favorite Ivy City dress. It fits perfectly and it’s flattering at all the right places. I love the neckline too. And it very pretty- a lovely shade of yellow with beautiful golden stars on it. Please make more dresses in this exact style. :)
Love my Gemma dress! I ordered my usual size xxl and like most smocked dresses, could've sized down. But I wanted the extra skirt room for more flare. Great quality fabric that is light but not thin & the stars are just beautiful little details. Can definitely be a year round dress & I love that it can be dressed up or dressed down for casual wear.
Yellow is one of my favorite colors so I immediately loved this dress! I ordered a small and it’s TTS on me. I love it!
This dress is so cute! I love the yellow color - it complements my engagement ring stones. The gold stars kind of get lost in the yellow and some of the stars are cut off, but they are still visible, especially in sunshine. I love that it is cotton. I recommend sizing down for smocked dresses - I always do and it makes it fit better.
Love this dress so much. I sized down two sizes and it fits like a dream. The only thing I would change is giving it pockets!
This dress is perfection!!!!! I love it so much!!!! I am wearing size XXS. I love how the smocking holds its shape!! I have tried other dresses with smocking and it is still loose, even in the smallest. But this dress fits so perfectly! I love the color. The fabric is so lightweight and flowy and the little stars are so beautiful!! I love everything about it and I need it in a bunch of other colors too!!
I was a little disappointed with this dress, I usually size down in smocked dresses & I did the same with this one but it ended up being too tight for my liking. I have a bad habit of removing tags from clothes as soon as I get them, so I won’t be able to return.
Such a cute yellow. So comfortable and so cute! Love it
the fit is similar to the madeline dress, i sized down a size. the color is so pretty as well as the pattern. i am so excited to wear this all summer, it is seriously such an amazing dress!
Another beautiful spring dress from the ladies at Ivy City Co. While I still personally prefer the fabric and the style of the Midsummer's and Starry Night dresses, I think the Gemma is still a lovely dress with that same metallic star print that we all love so much. I do wish it had a two-tiered skirt like the aforementioned star dresses have, and I personally prefer the billowly longer sleeve. But I know I'll still enjoy wearing this one out all summer, and the fabric is very lightweight and guaranteed not to make you sweat too much in the hotter months, so that's a huge win. I also feel like it's a bit of a tighter cut than the midsummers/starry nights dresses so just be aware of that. I still sized down like I do in those dresses, but I could have probably stayed with my TTS and been content as this one isn't as loose.
This is such a pretty dress! I ordered an XS and it fits great. I feel like a young girl. The dress is really flattering and the stars look really pretty. Love it!
I LOVE this dress. Didn't think IvyCity could top their previous dresses but DANG. I love it. I'm going to wear this all summer. For reference I'm 5'5" and a 36j bra, and I'm wearing a Medium.
Humbly requesting more colors and prints in this style
I’m in love with this dress! It’s so feminine and works perfect for spring and summer! Obsessed with the shade of yellow
This is an absolute dream. Very color, fit and material
This is a very pretty dress. Perfect size. Perfect material. I absolutely loved how modest it is!
I ordered XXS and it fits me perfectly!! I am so happy with the fit overall. The smocked makes me feel so pretty. It’s very bright and flowly. I love that ivy dresses are always fully lined. It’s the perfect spring/summer dress! I plan to wear to my sister’s baby shower. Yellow is her favorite color.
Another winner! Extremely flattering and has such a happy vibe. I went TTS and would highly recommend that as it is more snug then other smocked tops such as the cotton candy, Mia, or Madeline. It does show my black undies through the layers, make sure you have a nude pair on!
First of all, Love the print and design! Took one star off for a couple reasons, i have both the midsummer and starry night dresses and the quality for those seem much better as far as the gold foil stars. Noticed a few of the stars were smudged off, but very minor compared to the overall look and feel of the dress. Also, the liner is not as thick quality as other ivy dresses, so it is slightly see through! But nothing nude under garments cant fix!
On the plus side, love the shorter puff sleeves and the delicate detail of the ruffles on both the front and back. Still a must get dress if you love stars and of course this is a classic ivy silhouette! Perfect for spring and summer ❤️
While the Harlow was love at first sight... I had mixed feeling about the Gemma, mostly cause I wasn’t a big fan of the sleeves. Yet she’s now one of my fave Ivy dress, right after the sweet Madeline!! The best part about the sleeves is that you can fold them up to your liking and still look cute! I’m 5’3, wearing the XXS. I do think this XXS is just a smidge smaller than their other XXS (like with the Madeline for example) but I don’t think you need to size up. Love the Gemma, hoping to see more prints!
Love the color and fabric of this dress! So lightweight and perfect for summer☀️ I went with my usual size and it was a perfect fit. Runs smaller than Cotton Candy and Mia. The shoulders do tend to slip off a tad but not enough to be problematic. Love that I can dress it up or down
my usual size is xs and I ordered a XXS. Great fit, quality, cut and comfortable. Lots of compliments when we are out. People love to see us matching together, brings so many smiles! I love this yellow, never knew it would be flattering on me. I was asked mult times if we had the dresses custom made. keeping these to pass on to my daughter one day.
please make more sleeves like this one! its the perfect summer sleeve.
