Product Details

Short and sweet but stunning too, this timeless sheath is made from a corded Leavers lace that we found at a sixth-generation family-owned mill in Rhode Island (it has been perfecting the art of lace making since 1859). The streamlined silhouette is designed with a cinched waist and a classic sweetheart neckline. Trimmed with raw-edged silk chiffon and grosgrain at the waist, it's the kind of dress you can wear to a rehearsal dinner or change into for the reception (and then wear later for cocktail parties and garden soirees).

Mackenna dress in Leavers lace

Mackenna dress in Leavers lace is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely LWD I ordered this when I was considering wearing a short dress for my wedding in October. I did not find it to be yellow as another reviewer mentioned. It was a beautiful ivory color, and the structure was exquisite! It fit me perfectly, and the bodice has boning to keep its lovely shape. I ultimately decided to go the long dress route when we chose the venue, so I returned this dress - but not without some regrets!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress, Terrible Colour I bought this dress for my destination wedding. It is a gorgeous dress. The lace is lovely and the construction is good. Just enough detail to make it special without being fussy. Unfortunately, I had to return it due to the colour. On the computer screen it looks white or off white but in person it was cream, actually a very light yellow. Really unflattering on olive skin! Would probably be nice on an icy blonde or maybe anyone with a blue-eyed complexion. I really hope there will be more short dress options in actual shades of white for spring, it's so hard to find something like this that is short but still looks classic and bridal! I also found it ran small. I have a super 120s skirt suit in 00 but would need at least a 0 in this, possibly a 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rehearsal dinner dress I picked this up from J.Crew Bridal for my rehearsal dinner dress! I love the fit and the fabric especially. I ended up selecting a beaded belt to go along with it which really creates a waist with the dress. I usually wear a size 4-6 in dress and bought a 6 after trying on a sample size 8 that was a bit too big in the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, simple, cute I bought this to wear to our simple, intimate, family-only wedding. It is very well-made, and chic. It is a simple dress so I would recommend thinking about adding a sash or belt to jazz it up and add some of your own personality. For the price, it cannot be beat! It has a classic J.Crew shape and sizing. You may want to size down if you are small in the chest (like me). I think it would probably be easy to alter if necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this purchase This is a beautiful dress, perfect for an event leading up to our destination wedding in Mexico. It's comfortable even with the support built into the corset. I actually found this dress runs large. From the other reviews, I was concerned about needing to size up, though when I called JCrew for advice, they said it was TTS. I purchased my usual JCrew dress size in 0, and I was surprised it was so loose. I reordered it in 00 (thanks for making it so easy, JCrew!), and it is perfect. For reference, I'm 5'5" and 107 lbs. I know I'll wear this dress again beyond our wedding as it looks pretty versatile.
