A-line dress in double-serge wool

A-line dress in double-serge wool is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent classic Love the heavy weight, I get cold easy and this is substantial and so comfortable, plus a great job smoothing anything. The style is perfect and timeless, have been looking for it for years. I'd buy more colors, especially in a version with short or cap sleeves and fun colors or vintage pattern, or a classic bright red. I also bought the tweed and it's stunning as well. Very flattering to the waist and hips. In recent years I've had issue with the backs of jcrew wool sheaths being too tall or gaping, this fits perfectly flat to the shoulders. I also purchased a velvet tie belt and velvet rhinestone belt, the first adds some style and fun, the latter makes it look almost formal, but still casual. Both are a perfect match to the waist panel of fabric here. I found it true to size. Great job JCrew!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love! Can't wait to wear this dress! I just purchased this in the 000 and it fits beautifully. The material is thick and sturdy but comfortable and warm. The ivory color is great for the holidays. I plan to wear it with over-the-knee boots (I am 5'8" so there is still an inch or so between the top of the boots and the bottom of the dress) and the Pom Pom plaid flats from JCrew depending on the occasion. I tend to get cold easily so a JCrew tissue turtleneck will be great underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful/Classy The picture does not do this dress justice. I got the dress in an ivory color and it lays very feminine and very classy, Jackie O style. I have an hour glass shape and a bigger bust, it is fitting on top and as it says a-line and lets loose through the hip and thigh. The material is very high quality and it is very comfortable. I usually where a size 6, however J. Crew in recent years seems to run a bit bigger.. I got a size 4 and it fit like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I got my regular size, and it fits like a glove. I would say this runs small. Midsection is very, very fitted. Skirt ends at the knee. Armholes are not enormous but could be a problem if you are self-conscious about that area. Material is soft and thick - the heather purple color is very nice for winter if you have tanned skin but I could see a blonde looking great in the camel or ivory. Wished they brought it out in red or navy as well. This dress brings to mind Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn, Kate M. A girdle or shapewear would not be unwelcome. Considering whether to go up one size, for comfort, but am not sure it would look as good. I'm 5-2 with a straight figure but biggish bottom. My dress size at J.crew is 000 - because I am longwaisted (petites are too big waisted and short even though I am short).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress, terrible sizing I always purchase JCrew size 0 work dresses. They are classy and different. The lilac color in wool is just beautiful. The dress in regular 0 hits below the knee, fits well at the waist and hips. But what's with the chest and arm holes! How can a size 0 woman have such huge chest and arms?? I agree with other reviewer on the sizing. I am still undecided if I should keep it and get it altered, or risk it and wear with a cardigan. Dear JCrew, now that you have the style and quality down, please rework the sizing.
