Rated 5 out of 5 by abc1234 Classic dress for spring, TTS
Love, love this dress! It's very classic, but has that slight edge that J.Crew does well. Crisp collar and placket are just the right touch. It's not a super thin, lightweight merino that shows all the lumps and bumps, which is great. The sizing is TTS, I went with the small I normally wear in tops. (36b, 132 lbs) I typically wear a 4 in dresses, and 4-6 in pants lately at JC. Hooray that it goes to just at/above my knee (5'5"), perfect length! So happy it's not a mini. Keeper for me.

Finally J Crew designs a dress that makes sense! The merino wool is absolutely fine as far as the quality I would expect from a dress at this price point. It is not thin-- it's a chunkier weave and it is substantial enough to not show every dimple and lump. It hangs nicely on the hanger--not schlumpy which says a lot. Much thinner and it would feel cheap and honestly much thicker and you certainly couldn't wear it in the warmer spring months coming up. It was engineered well.
The contrasting white placket is crisp and I can't understand the problem with the light, light gray stripes that have been mentioned (the stripes still have a white tone to them). I think they provide a bright enough contrast with the black to look terrific and pop.
Length is longer; thank goodness this isn't a mini dress. And by the way, I think this dress would look flattering on many figure types.

I love the look and style of this dress. My only criticism is that the fabric is thin and see through but nothing that a slip won't fix. It's a great length! Must have for Spring!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sandy Great idea, but fabric a disappointment
Was really looking forward to this fresh looking dress. Unfortunately, the merino is rather loosely woven, which, to me, makes the fabric look very cheap. Also, take note - the stripes are black and a very light gray, not black and white, as I assumed from the picture. Sadly, it's going back.

I have been very disappointed with the quality as it shrunk very much when I washed it in cool water with very soft detergent.
