Rated 5 out of 5 by TeaBird Comfy & Cute
I'm happy with this keeper!
I ordered my usual size but it seemed
a tad large so I purposely washed it
In cold water and dried it on the regular
setting so that it would shrink a little.
It shrunk a small amount and did not fade,
nor did the colors run.
I'm wearing it at the office right now
and feel super comfy and stylish.
I'd buy more if other colors were

Rated 2 out of 5 by got4lilgirls2 Dye bled prufusely!
I was very disappointed in this jacket that really was only good for one wear. I go out of my way to buy non-synthetic clothing and paid more than I wanted to for this jacket because I liked the design so much. I loved the navy and white, which is the base of my summer wardrobe (especially, packing for an overseas trip). I am using coral and yellow accent color with all else navy and white. I washed this jacket in cool water with other darks and older jeans shorts. The navy dye bled into the white stripes destroying the contrast look!!! Fortunately, I caught the problem before it went into the dryer. BUT there was still enough dye bleed left to slightly discolor my next load in the washing machine of coral, pink and yellow PIKO tops. NOT HAPPY AT ALL.

Rated 3 out of 5 by clydajo Ordering another one!
I 'had' this jacket, but when I washed it.....the colors ran onto the nice white and in my opinion ruined the jacket. BUT, I loved it so decided to order another one and maybe take to the cleaners (?) for cleaning.
I doubt J. Jill would stand behind this being returned, but I've read here that others had the same problem. The white on it is sharp and looks great with a white shirt, jeans, etc.
I did feel the sleeves wouldn't allow a long sleeved shirt underneath, so I wear it with a sleeveless shirt or tunic.
I think I might try and dye my first one to a darker color and see what happens.
I HATE HATE HATE DOING RETURNS TO THE STORE! I'VE NEVER FELT THE SALES PEOPLE ARE KIND TO RETURNS....SO I HATE IF I HAVE TO DO THAT! THEY NEED TO BE COACHED THAT IT'S OK TO DO A RETURN!!!!
Because of several problems with this jacket, it's good it's on a sale now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gram8 Have not worn yet, but so far so good!
We live in a hot climate, but I ordered this "jacket" for a trip north because it was for sale at a reduced price. I like the color, style and fit. However, I have yet to actually wear it, but am hoping to continue liking it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NISI It ran
I washed the jacket and the white ran into the blue. I'm upset because I followed the instructions and I shouldn't of had a problem. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I love J Jill but this was not a good fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trudy11 Very nice jacket
Although this jacket appeared it might be overkill with the matching skirt, I was wrong. I bought it because it was on sale in my size, and I already had the tee and loved it. I am very happy with this jacket! Blue is deep enough to give a beautiful contrast to the white striping. Placement of stripes is flattering, even to my pear-like figure. It is such a fun piece, yet it retains elegance, especially with the matching skirt.
As for sizing, I like looser tops, and I usually buy tunics in size L. I buy perfect tees in size M and most relaxed fit shirts in size M. This jacket in size M is perfect. It is a loose style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by amsonjj DO NOT hand wash
I wore this once before washing and loved it. I hesitated to toss it in with my darks because of the white. Bad move. With hand washing, the blue bled completely into the stripes. Since it's a tie-dyed design, it's wearable. It's just not as cute without the bright, contrasting white.
I still like the drape and design. For the price, I'll mourn my washing mistake for a while.
