Rated 5 out of 5 by champagneforbreakfast Not the same old linen dress
I found this dress on sale and took a chance. I have about a dozen linen dresses, but this looked a little out of the ordinary. I washed and line dried it and wore it unironed for the first time yesterday. I am 5'4" and 120 lbs. The extra small was roomy and below the knee enough to look interesting rather than unfashionable. The linen drapes well and is substantial. The pockets are wonderful - I love pockets in dresses. I bought the dress in black and wore it with chunky antique silver jewelry and flatform sandals. I was pleased with the effect as it will travel well to sunny countries with relaxed ease. However, I visited a JJill store yesterday and saw what ironing does to their linen. Wow, it changes it from casual to elegant. I might have to modify my no-iron policy when an iron is available. I think I could wear this dress ironed to a cocktail party.

This is NOT something that can easily be dressed up. it is very casual and i think i will live in it this summer. After 1 wash it lookl years old, glad I found it very much discounted! Now I can live in it instead of for it.

This is a staple piece for summer. I plan to wear it with a pair of flat sandals while traveling in Europe this summer. It will also serve well for summer days about town in NY. The asymmetrical hem adds a nice flair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Judy05 Even nice as a jumper with a shirt underneath
Fits well and looks nice with a shirt underneath if you want your arms covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wildbirdies GREAT DRESS - WATCH THE HIPS!!!
I gave this dress 5 stars because it deserves it - it is fabulous. The color, the quality of the linen, the hem line, the length - all fantastic. However, man oh man is it ever huge thru the hips!!! Great fit in bust, great fit thru the waist - an appropriate mount of loose fit. Then the hips flare out so much, well it is HUGE "a-line". Actually more like a tent dress. I am not a light weight in the hips department, and this dress over powered me. I am so disappointed it didn't work for me, but it is truly a 5 star piece of clothing. I would recommend purchase, if you can fill in the hip area. My measurements: 38-28-38. I ordered a small.

I have been buying linen from Jill for years and I have never been disappointed by the quality or fit. I look forward to each new season for the color selection. This dress is no exception to the standards I have come to expect .
