Rated 2 out of 5 by jlbf Nice fabric, but too shapeless
Agree with a previous review, which I unfortunately disregarded because it looks so good on the model and the price is so tempting, but which warned it was baggy/shapeless, which it unfortunately is. If I had the time it would be a lovely dress if I put darts in to create a waist, but I sent it back. (I am 5'8" and 143#).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosie A bit lose, but still beautiful
First the material: Lovely, soft silk. I wash it by hand without a problem.
Now the fit: When I first bought the XL, it was a tad tight on the hips but, after losing some pounds, it became too lose at the waist. I first fixed that with a dress clip or cinch (those old things that were mostly used in the back of vests to adjust them), and ended up adding two parallel seams on the back, which gave the dress much more shape. Anyway, loose or with more shape, I still believe it is a beautiful dress and I get a lot of compliments every time I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ValueSeeker Lovely Material
This is a nice weighty silk that one could wear into fall with another layer and boots. I find it roomy but still true to size, and love the subtle pattern and colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rani another unshaped dress
this material is really nice, but the dress needs some contouring and shorter sleeves or ones that can be comfortably gathered to look right on me. light, soft silk. i had to send it back as i could not make it work given lack of shaping.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kbed38 Runs a little snug.
It was definitely worth the sale price I paid, but note that the bust is slim, like many J.Jill dresses, so if you're full in that area (like me) it's going to be a snug fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jillgirl Go-to dress!
This effortless dress is my go-to dress. It does not need ironing and goes well with casual or dress shoes. The fit is true to size. It is very comfortable for my long work days.
