Petite résumé dress

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Claire Underwood would approve! This dress is of beautiful quality and fits beautifully. It has just a bit of stretch in it and it looks professional and classy. I am 32-26-33.5 and the 0P fits me like a glove - in the closer fit side than I'd like, but I know the next size up will be too loose on top. I bought the navy and it doesn't show every bump or lump but I will wear some smoothing undergarments because the material is on the thinner side and it is a body conscious (though not clingy) dress. The waist falls in exactly the right spot on my petite torso (5'2"). I actually like the pockets, it gives my ruler shaped body a little more curve at the waist. The little sleeves are very attractive as well and add a nice touch to an otherwise simple design. I just finished watching all 4 seasons of House of Cards and this dress definitely is Claire Underwood's style...which I can't help but try to emulate just a tiny bit. April 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful I ordered the dress in heather gray in my usual 4p. The dress is beautiful, and I love the slightly longer 38" length as opposed to the more common 37-1/4". The dress runs a little large, so w I will return and hope that the 2p fits a little better. A beautiful dress, which is perfect for professional settings, church and special non-formal occiasions. Plus, the lightweight wool is suitable for all seasons, and the cap sleeve is a nice alternative to sleeveless. I love it. September 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful, but... I'm 5'2, 120 pounds and I ordered a petite 4 in cove. The color is beautiful, but the material is thin and the fit is a little large. What should have been a sheath/pencil fit on the skirt ended up being more of an A-line. Also, if you have hips, the pockets are placed such that they will only magnify them. I wanted to love this dress, if only for the color, but sadly I will return. May 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Unique and Beautiful Dress, Excellent Quality I'm normally an 8p (on the smaller side) and purchased in a 6p. Happy I did, as this dress does run slightly large, especially in the bottom. I wish the skirt of the dress was taken in a bit for a more refined look. It is absolutely gorgeous, I received many compliments on it and you will look chic, I love the sleeves and the cerulean blue is fantastic. November 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Go-to Work Dress This dress has quickly become a work favorite. I purchased in 3 colors (blue, navy, gray). I was a little worried about the shoulder bunching under a jacket or sweater, but no problems whatsoever. I ordered my normal J. Crew size and it fits fine (TTS on top and slightly big on bottom).
