Rated 4 out of 5 by Tempeh13 My daughter loved it
I purchased the vest for my 26 yr old daughter, who is a bit trendy but very unique in how she puts together items of clothing. She wears a medium or size 8 and this was a perfect fit, with room for her slightly wider hips even without opening the pleats. She is 5'4" and it covers her hips completely. The armholes have space to wear a sweater underneath. The quilting is very flat and doesn't add bulk. The only problem is the front edges of the Mandarin collar, which can be a bit irritating, but she felt they would relax after a few wearings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jeneee Nice weight and color but...
Liked the vest, especially the side vents, however the hip area was too
small and I am returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cautiouscathi The vest is a good addition to any wardrobe.
The Red is a lovely rich color. The overall weight of the vest makes it very comfortable. The pockets are very shallow and strangely shaped because of the buttons and buttonholes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BarbaraJP The color is great
The jacket did not fit me well. The collar comes up too high. I thought I would like buttons but discovered they were't for me. It's nice and light and would be perfect for southern California. I will probably return this item. Makes me sad!

Rated 2 out of 5 by adklady Not an attractive buy
All of the negative reviews re: the shoulders were not exaggerating. The shoulder looked like a shelf. Very strange looking. I was very disappointed. I've been looking for a light weight black vest and thought this was it. JJill has been changing their look and it is not attractive. The tops are for tall, thin women - The loose, flaring lower portions are not attractive. Too much material. Like old fashioned maternity tops. Please come back.

I love the first one (ivory) I bought so much, I ordered another one in red. Not bulky at all. Very fitted so you don't look or feel like a stuffed sausage! Great fabric and well made. So glad I now have two! Didn't have to size up or down to get a perfect fit. A J.Jill winner.

No wonder this vest has been so popular...I've been waiting for my size to come back in stock! It was well worth the wait for this light-weight, quilted, button-up (hard to find) and very stylish vest.
