Rated 5 out of 5 by SukiSays Waiting for summer!
I watched this dress over the summer, but because I could not wear it to work, waited and hoped for a sale in order to justify it for "fun." Worth the wait, as now its mine - yay! Something about the cut on top is flattering for those of us lacking Michelle Obama arms and the deep green color is even lovelier in person. Although too cold now, I know this will be one of my go-to summer frocks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by daisylover Great Maxi!
I picked this up on sale, with plans to wear it when it gets warmer. I've been wanting a maxi for a while, as I used to wear them in the 70's. But I have been unsuccessful in finding one that is appropriate for someone over 50. I really like the moss color and the style. I wear a small in most j.jill dresses, the armholes in the mediums are too big. I have a small torso with a large bust (34 DD). This dress is a bit small in the bust, but looks great with the Perfect Cardi for work. I'm really happy I got it.

This dress is very comfortable to wear. You can wear it during the day as well as dress it up for evening. Fabric is very nice and forgiving. It's a great dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BMW77 Great summer dress
This is the first maxi dress I've bought since the early 70s, so it's been awhile. We are suffering through weather that is hotter than blazes right now. I wore this dress to work yesterday, and it was perfect. It was 104 outside, so walking between buildings, I stayed cool thanks to the loose fit, v-neck, and no sleeves. With one of my J. Jill waterfall cardis, it was fine indoors as well. Now I did have to wear a cami under it, because the v is a teeny bit low, but it still looked business casual worthy with the cami. I'm thinking of possibly wearing this with a sequined tank to our fundraising gala next month, because why not? I'm going to be working, not indulging, so I may as well be comfy! I'm only giving this four stars because I had to buy a large, since they were out of mediums. I"m going to have to take in the sides of the bodice and probably the upper part of the skirt. However, the good news is that as a D-cup, even when I alter the dress, it will still fit me properly in the bust, so maybe that was a blessing in disguise. Will probably tack the v-neck permanently so I don't flash too much. But again, great dress with a lot of inherent versatility. Looking forward to wearing it with platform sandals, a lacy topper, and a tie dye scarf for going out to dinner. Then I can pretend I'm still that boho teen wearing maxi dresses in 1973.

This dress is very flattering to most shapes, packs without wrinkling and can be dressed up with a scar foe necklace and can move into a cooler season by adding a sweater.

I thought I would wear this as a casual dress. However, after trying it on it will be my multipurpose long black dress. I'll team it with blingy jewelry and a wrap or evening jacket for after-5 events. By day I'll pair it with an infinity scarf and sweater/jacket and boots. It looks great with the denim shirttail jacket!! Year round item. Nice fabric. Better than expected.
