Rated 4 out of 5 by Saulty Substantial and GREEN!
Nice heavy fabric in a GORGEOUS color. It seems true-to-size, with largish armholes. Just wear a jacket over it: this fabric is too heavy to be worn sleeveless, in my opinion. I didn't even realize it had pockets until my sister asked me about them, having read about them in the description. Bonus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by meadowlark love the tourmaline color but did not fit me
I love the tourmaline color but the cut of the dress did not fit me. I admit my hips are bigger than my bust and I am not long waisted. If you are lucky and have smaller hips or long waisted, you might look great in this dress. I tried a small and a medium misses and neither worked for me. The pockets seemed to hit me in the wrong place. The armholes were too large in the medium. So Sad! I plan to return both sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doglover809 Too large around middle but a beautifully made dress.
I've learned that my dress size in JJill is an XS despite my normal size 6 or small with other dresses. The fabric on this dress is a nice quality ponte knit which I like. It is too large in the waist area. I will have to have it altered. It would be very nice for a pregnant woman who is just starting to show in the belly area only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Active61 Nice color
I have worn this dress once with a black lace-front sweater for a dressier look. The dress is comfortable and doesn't wrinkle, which is a plus for travel. I love the green color but wish I had gotten the black because I could wear so many different color sweaters with black.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stirling Will work for some
This dress is a bit pear-shaped, larger on the bottom than the top; if you are top heavy, you might want to avoid, otherwise simple but nice. I received a compliment so I'm happy, good value

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hones Great fabric, good shape
I love the ponte fabric of this dress - substantial enough to not cling to my lumpy bits! I find the length to be less than flattering, hitting me directly on the kneecaps. I think the length would be ok if the fit were more tailored - as it is, the body of the dress is not cut terribly close, so that "shift" shape combined with the length make it feel a bit frumpy. I plan to shorten the dress by about two or three inches, which makes it much more modern-feeling. I may also add a dart or two at the back waist, but I don't know yet. Looks fabulous with a cardigan and tights (doesn't cling to tights and ride up!!). Great fall and winter-weight dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyinthesouth Great dress
This was my first time I have ordered anything from J.Jill and am very pleased. The dress is a good weight, length and style. Would recommend to a friend.

The fabric and style of this dress are great but the fit is unfortunate. Way too big around the waist and hips. Had to return it.
