Rated 1 out of 5 by kolohi Not a silk dress, inacurate description
I have been asking customer service to DESCRIBE CLOTHING ACCURATELY. Fabric content is very important; I pay extra for high performance fabrics. Silk is a dream fabric; it weighs next to nothing (GREAT for packing), is breathable, warm in winter, cool in summer and gorgeous. When lined with polyester, you have all of the expense of silk without the advantages; I do not want sweaty, smelly, synthetic polyester on a hot summer day.
This is described as "silk", although it is ~50% polyester due to the cheap polyester lining. If it needs a lining (I don't think it does), it could simply be lined in silk. Please do not cheapen lovely silk clothing with tacky synthetics. No more bait and switch. Also, washable silk is common. Dry clean only silk is an environmental nightmare and increases the expense of the garment many times over. It also makes this an impossible choice for travel. Catch up to modern times and use washable silk. Get rid of the polyester lining which makes it not washable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anna3 Poor quality item
I saw this dress in the store and really liked it. It sold out in my local store, so I ordered it online. When the dress arrived, it had a damaged lining and I returned it. Since I liked the dress so much, I ordered it again. To my dismay, the lining was damaged again! Well, since I liked the dress, I kept it anyway. Sadly, it is not the end of the story. I wore it once, took it to the dry cleaner and when I got it back the lining was longer than the dress. Mind you, I am a very loyal fan of JC and more than 90% of my items are JC, but the quality has been steadily declining over the last couple of years. The quality of this item is unacceptable!!! I wish I could return it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by k2014 Pretty, but runs large
Most Jcrew dresses in 00 fit well on me, except for the ones without a waist. This one in particular was huge. It felt like a size 2. Even with a belt the material was too baggy. I'm 5'0 and normally a petite 0 or petite 00, 107 pounds. The petite was sold out in my size.
The length was to the knee, but the overall size was sack-like, rather than slim like the model. The pattern and color are beautiful. I might go down a size if you like your dresses to reveal your shape or if you are in between sizes. The sleeves fit normally, just the bodice was huge, even for a normal 00.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fashionfanatic Really great buy
Contrary to the other reviews, I really like this dress. Absolute love the silk material. Always buy dresses that hit the knees, so I purchased 1 size large to create a flowy effect. The result is fantastic!
