Rated 2 out of 5 by shortie Poorly executed
I really wanted to love this dress. The photos online make it look like a fun Spring dress. Flounced is an apt word for it. The material was heavier than I thought. I got the pale sand color and it wasn't see through, which was nice. The fit was weird on me though. I'm 5'2" so it could just be because I'm petite, but it was very boxy. Also, the seaming at the waist was askew. It was a good 1-2" higher on one side than the other. More an issue with construction quality than anything else, I think

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sasha This dress looks ridiculous
From the picture I was expecting an elegant dress for a casual evening out. The neckline is higher than pictured, and the hemline is as well. This dress is too short and the style is too immature for me to wear. Overall I am very disappointed with this purchase.

I was very excited for this dress - a perfect transition piece in the sand color. The sizing is definitely off - the skirt is NOT A-line and the lining is skin tight. Then there's the execution: I like the fabric but the zipper almost broke in 1 try-on. As for the length....VERY short! I'm right at 5 ft. 9 and this dress is basically a tunic on me. J.Crew is normally length-perfect for my height. They need to make this in a tall. This could have been the perfect dress!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kittenDC love it...with reservations.
First: JCrew please keep bringing back the 000, I looove this size. I usually only fit into 00P but sometimes the petite sizes are short waisted on me (and sometimes there aren't petites available).
Back to the dress review, I ordered in two colors and may end up keeping both because this is a great dress. However, I'm 5ft 2.5in and the hemline on both came up quite far along the side (an inch or so above my fingertips). I don't know how much longer they make the other sizes, but unless you're below 5'3'' this dress is going to look strange on you. Looking at the photos of the model, her dress reaches several inches longer than mine does on me...which is usually the opposite problem I have. Overall, great dress, but I can see how taller girls are getting frustrated.

Sadly, this dress is on it's way back to JCrew - Either the model is very short or the dress she is wearing has been specially modified for her - the dress I received was TOO short & TOO tight in spite of it being my usual size 8. Coulda, shoulda, woulda been a great dress if otherwise executed differently.
