Rated 2 out of 5 by trixxie Wanted to love it
I was so hoping this would be the perfect weekend dress but the cut is extremely unflattering to my figure. It looked like an an old school house coat rather than chic shift. As with all too many JCrew dresses the armholes are cut too low....please, please consider fixing this fit issue...until you do it is a fit deal-breaker. I think this would be most flattering on those with broader shoulders and a small bust. The fabric is very soft and the trim detail is very cute.

Sure, you feel like you're wearing a potato sack but the really annoying thing is that the decorative trim is stiff and scratchy. Totally uncomfortable under the arms as it rubs against your skin. Too bad b/c it had potential.
Returned the same day it arrived!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wendy not a good look for me
I loved the dress when I saw it in the catalog - ordered it, tried it on and felt very frumpy...I looked very much like I was wearing my grandma's housecoat....still loving the dress, I kept trying it with different shoes - nothing worked...I think a taller lady could pull it off well - its a cute dress, just not for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jane Not as I envisioned........
Typically I would never write any type of review in reference to an item that I have purchased, but this seems like perfect opportunity to explain.
In the latest catalog this dress is adorable, looks like it hits above knee and appears to be great dress to just run around in...... However in reality it looks much closer to small photo on side of this review, it is way too long and it has zero shape (even too baggy to belt). It resembles maternity dress.....blah! All people are not 5'9 or taller...... And I am now convinced catalogs may have clothing altered to models size! It would be a valuable tool to put in description measurements of model or offer that information via customer service.
Exchanged this dress for some of my summer staples..... ):

This dress is so cute! It is a bit longer, hitting me about an inch or two above the knee- but I love that! The trim is so cute doesn't bother me under the arms. This is a perfect summer staple- especially for running errands around town on the weekends! Another great dress, J. Crew!
