Petite Tessa dress in slub silk

Petite Tessa dress in slub silk is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Dress but Mind the Fit I purchased the black in 00P, my usual J. Crew size. I am 5'3" and about 105lbs for reference. I thought the material would be something like taffeta, due to the photos online, but this dress is your average thin to medium thickness soft silk. It is well tailored with darts and is lined. I like the classic shape, which would make this dress both work and occasion appropriate. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit. Though I can wear the dress, the waist/rib-cage is uncomfortably tight while the bust is loose. The baggy bust area really ruins the silhouette. The wide neckline at the back also gapes rather than sitting flush against my body. I will have to get this altered before I can wear it.
