The vintage plaid is a little brighter and more pink and less coral than appears in the on-line picture. And though I don't usually go for this palette, this dress is so sweet and comfortable, I'm going for it. The first review notes that the dress runs large though the graph shows it as running slightly small; it does run large and I had to size down because the top gaped open and I was looking for the fit in the picture. The dress is easy to put on and the straps are adjustable. and fits above the natural waist for an almost empire waist effect. Really like these vintage prints that J. Crew is exploring and that work for young women and the 50 plus crowd.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MJLo Runs big, straps smaller than appear.
Very cute light weight plaid dress, which is lined in a weightless pink cotton. The skirt part of this dress in length is as pictured, or a little shorter even. The top part however is very roomy. For reference I'm 5'6", 135# athletic build, small bust. I ordered the Small, as I usually get 4 tops and 6 bottoms in J.Crew. There are 3 button length options on the straps, and I put mine on the smallest option and it's still too big and baggy around my bust. I will be exchanging for the XS, and hope it works. Also, the straps pictured on the model about 3 times thicker/wider than they really are. Mine are VERY slender, I would prefer if they were as pictured!

Finally...a hint of the J Crew from a few years ago. This dress is fantastic...100% cotton (very light and airy), completely lined (in pink!!!), pockets AND adjustable straps with discreet buttons. I love it!!! It does run slightly large...with the adjustable straps you can definitely size down.
I'm 5-5 and the length is about where it is on the model..maybe a little shorter. It grazes right below the knee.
The color is almost exactly as it is on the website...I like it but it is very sherbet-y and may not work for you. I think it is very summery and cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AliF Must have - not a luxury, a necessity!
It's been a while since I've been moved almost compulsively to write a review, but WOW! What a gorgeous, beautifully made dress. The attention to detail is just stunning (down to the straps on the shoulders perfectly lining up, my inner-OCD was very impressed) I thought there was only a minor flaw in that the shoulder straps were a bit loose on me .... and then I realised that the straps are adjustable with adorable hidden buttons. Now a PERFECT fit. I normally buy M, but bought it in both an M & an S & the S fits perfectly. The top is loosely fitted and the skirt is very roomy & forgiving AND HAS POCKETS! My cup overfloweth. It's the best dress I've worn in ages & the only problem will be that I won't want to take it off. Treat yourself. It's not a luxury, it's a necessity! More please!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SeraphinaDC Good basic summer dress/cover up, but big
Just a note to say that this is a good basic dress, but for small-chested women, the top is really big, size down or if in between sizes, select the smaller size. I was greatly swimming in the dress, when I ordered my bigger size. When re-ordering, I hesitated between downsizing by one or two sizes, hopefully just going down one size will work out.
