Rated 4 out of 5 by champagneforbreakfast good summer little black dress
I wear a size 4 and the xs small fit perfectly. i am 5' 5" and 120 lbs. I bought the dress on sale in black. i have several linen dresses from JJill, and this was as expected, a good weight linen, simple and true to size. it will work well on vacations to warm places, simple but can be elegant, a nice dress.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kate1045 Disappointment
This dress was a real disappointment. First of all it was much too small and then the quality of the material was awful. It was sent back immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovessoft I love these dresses
I have not been able to wear this dress yet as I got it on sale, and there is snow on the ground! But I've tried it on, and it fits perfectly, just like the 3 other similar dresses I have from JJill. Last summer in the heat and humidity, I lived in these dresses. They wash and dry well, very little ironing if hung damp, could actually not even iron them. They are cooler than anything I tried, and hang well all day, are also a soft linen, not rough. Perfect summer dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JudithP beautiful but big
Lovely dress but too big all around for me - probably good for someone who likes a baggy style or can find a way to alter it. I am slim-average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boymom3 simple,comfortable and versatile
I love this dress. It can be worn to the beach and then dressed up with strappy sandals and some jewelry and you're ready for dinner! I have this dress in blue and now in black. Glad I waited for it to go on sale,such a bargain. This dress runs a bit large so order one size down. Length is just to the knee, which is perfect I think, not too short. (I'm 5'6).

I bought the Robin's Egg and Tangerine at bargain prices, couldn't even make them for what I paid so even a sweeter purchase. I love linen and these colours will be so pretty for next summer to wear alone or with a cotton cardy. A nice simple style which is what JJill is all about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by peach1 An "in-between" go-to...
This is one of those dresses that, to me, runs true or snug on top but a lot of fabric to be truly flattering on the bottom. Perfect for really warm weather as a throw-on with sandals. Too unstructured and wrinkly for anything dressier... but very hard to find lightweigt non-clingy dresses for summer when you're a little older, so I got black and porcini and had my seamstress take them in down the back. My fashion-forward daughters still pronounced pretty "sack-like" but oh, well. They do need ironing as well as a slip underneath--very see through. When the tangerine went deeply on sale got that; I found one washing and drying mellowed the color because it was bright!!!! This one ran a little shorter and snugger than the other two colors (very common I've found w/natural fabrics @ J.Jill and others) so doesn't

Rated 4 out of 5 by cchacha nice dress that didn't fit me!
I liked the style and the fabric, but I've decided that buying a dress on line isn't for me. My body hasn't found the right size/ fit yet. I'll try dresses in a store in the spring.
