Rated 2 out of 5 by NYCGirl125 Beautiful Fabric! Sadly, odd fit.
I wanted to love this dress - silk fabric is absolutely beautiful, however the fit is odd. Very straight cut, pockets extremly low - they fell well below my waistline. Perhaps if you are very tall without any curves, this dress would work for you. Unfortunately, it did not work at all on my 5'5" frame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by aimeebee Beautiful fabric, strange fit
I ordered this dress even after reading comments about the very low-placed waist, because I have a long torso and the waistline of most of J Crew's dresses fall too high on me anyway. This dress is cut with a very dropped waist and low-set pockets. Obviously not every style works for every body. This would probably look fine on a very tall, very slender person, but looked like a big bag on my curvy 5'7" frame. The fabric and print is so beautiful though, I couldn't give it up. I am lucky to have a great tailor who moved the waistband up 2-3 inches, took in the sides, and I now have the beautiful #and flattering# dress I wanted. Glad I got it on sale to offset the tailoring costs.
