Rated 5 out of 5 by RosieG Pretty dress
I love the color, texture, and lining, but can't really wear a sleeveles dress in the dead of winter, and couldn't match it with any topper that didn't drown the dress. So I opted to wear a long-sleeve black lace tee underneath and a black belt to cover the elastic. Was happy with the resulting outfit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GGinPG Smart dress for winter functions
Very simple dress made festive with velvet. I'm not generally a fan of velvet, but I thought the wine color was very pretty and, as the dress was on sale, I went for it. Glad I did. Structurally, the dress isn't terribly formal (which means a comfortable fit) but it will work for most dressy occasions. I wear XS in J. Jill, I bought an XS and it is roomy without being sloppy. The lining is nice so that the velvet doesn't cling unbecomingly where it isn't welcome. I also bought the "matching" cardigan. It's a nice set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by whitecalla Great color, fabric--elastic waist is weird
I love the color and the fabric is luscious, but the elastic waist hit me in a weird place. Probably work for someone with a higher waist...for me, it would have been perfect without the elastic waist....sending this one back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rescued14 Well made dress...
I was very pleased to find out how well made this dress was. It looked great on the hanger but not on me. I have a thick waist and didn't feel it was very flattering on me. Reluctantly, I sent it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by radius39 very nice dress!
I bought this to wear on Christmas and it is a lovely dress! I can't believe anyone would say this is not the highest quality! the velvet is thick and plush and rich looking. The style was great for me as I am curvy; I wore the matching velvet shirt as a jacket and it looked great. I wore a belt over the elastic which made it look very polished. Length was great too.

I got this for my Christmas Dress. I smiled as soon as I pulled it our of the box! The berry color is beautiful and just right for Christmas. It hits right at the knee so I still feel like a lady. I ordered up a size based on the other review since I'm usually on the line between sizes, it's a little roomy, so it probably is pretty to true to size. Can't wait for Christmas Eve to wear it for more than the couple minutes I have to try it on and move around in it to see how I liked it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Niffer Very poorly made
Shocked by how this is thrown together. Quality is pathetic. Doesn't look at all like the dress on the model.
