Rated 2 out of 5 by Hilary Poorly proportioned
I wanted to love this dress. It hit all the points for me: 3/4 sleeves, lace, long. The sleeves are NOT 3/4, they go all the way to the wrist. The sleeves are oddly bulky but the arm holes are small so the seams don't sit right on my shoulders. The neck line is too high, it digs into my neck when I stand up straight with my shoulders back. The waistline, open back and column length are all beautiful. Just the top was completely off and the sleeves were awful. Jcrew, please tweak this dress because it has so much potential.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elizabeth Love it but needs some work
Undoubtedly, this dress is gorgeous and fit exactly what I was looking for (sleeves, lace, back detail). However, it's not without its flaws. The sleeves are not 3/4 but are full length and the arm holes are true to size but the sleeves themselves are baggy instead of fitted (as seen in the photo). The built in corset in the dress adds bulk and is ill fitting, making the top of the dress seem a little matronly. However, I didn't think the neckline was too high as the other reviewer remarked and the back and side profile of this dress are STUNNING. The skirt is also gorgeous and the lace is high quality. All in all the pros outweigh the cons, and with a little work I think this dress will be perfect. I'm going to keep the dress but am going to see if a tailor can remove the corset and add lining instead and pull in the sleeves.
