Rated 3 out of 5 by PXSshopper Cute But Too "Boy"-ish
I have been on the hunt for a navy gingham shirt that fits my petite frame. I knew this was the "boy-shirt" fit, but I had really high hopes that it would work in 00P. It was just too "boy"-ish for me; it was too long, and too wide in the waist. It looked somewhat decent when I tied it in front, but I don't want to be limited in how I wear it. I am considering taking it in at the tailor's or washing/drying on high if I cannot find anything else. I wish J Crew would make more items, like this, in P000, or at least offer some kind of "Ship to Store" or "Find in Store" option (which would mean more stores with Petites). It would save me a lot of time buying and returning things that don't fit since I can't try them on first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by runonprof Fit me like a tent
I sort of expected a boxy fit because of the "boy" part, but the sweep of the shirt is wider than the shoulders (at least in the 2 petite I ordered) and thus this fit me like a tent- a bright eggplant checkered tent. Maybe it would work for other body types, but for me, this desperately needed some more body-conscious seaming. Even if I tried to tuck it in, there's way too much fabric from waist to hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sleepycat Comfy and cute!
It's very soft and pretty. It's easy to wear and matches everything. I love it very much. I went with my usual J Crew size and I think it's true to size. But you can certainly run down a size or two it you want a tighter fit.

I love this button down. I bought the amethyst color several years ago and it had been worn many times--alone or under a sweater, with skirts, jeans, or shorts. I am so happy to see Jcrew brought this shirt back and in even more colors. This summer I bought the neon seamist and the orchid bloom and the colors are so pretty and the shirt fits just like the one from years ago. Great to see some consistency from Jcrew!

Rated 5 out of 5 by keysgirl My new favorite shirt
I was looking for a lightweight collared shirt to wear with shorts in my tropical climate and this is the one! It needs to be ironed even with careful washing/quick dryer time but you can get away with just doing the front button panel. From someone who detests ironing, this shirt is worth it. I was surprised that I needed an 8 petite because I buy "Small" vintage tees from JCrew. I am 5'4, 125 pounds with broad shoulders and wear a 32 or 34 DD. The shirt hits in a good place on the hip. The regular size 8 was too long and looked sloppy on me. Please add more fabrics in Petite.
