Rated 4 out of 5 by SFroaster Lovely, but iffy for work
I love the fit and fabric of this dress, however, on the first day I wore it to work, I realized that the fashionable front slit rose up a little too high while sitting down. As much as I like showing a little knee while walking, the amount of thigh I accidentally exposed while sitting in meetings means this dress will probably be saved for dinners and not worn to work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JessicaLynn Perfect... except for one tiny detail
I stalked this dress for several weeks before I finally broke down and ordered it for myself. And it is perfect. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is due to the fit around the hip, butt & thigh area. Since I have narrow hips and a non-existent butt, the dress was a bit large in that area. Larger then I expected it to be at least. It doesn't look bad and the placement of the small slit in front definitely helps hide the fact that it's a little big, allowing the dress to move with you. However, it is a great office dress and I will put it to use often this summer!
For reference: My measurements are 34-28-35 and I take a 0 in this dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cm1315 Cute but not work appropriate
I loved the fit and fabric of this dress but I have to echo the sentiment of another reviewer. The first day I wore this to the office and sat down, I realized that the slit opened and exposed way too much thigh. While it is fine when standing, it is definitely an issue when sitting down. Keeping it because of the awesome fit, but also saving it for less professional occasions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lselynn Solid Piece to add to the work wardobe
Me: 5'3, 120lbs, Petite Frame
I wear a Regular 0 in the EMMALEIGH DRESS IN SUPER 120S WOOL and ordered the Regular 0 in this as well, but it was a quite loose around the waist hips. I have a narrow frame (my hips are as wide as my shoulders) so it felt like I was swimming in the bottom half of the dress. This may flatter curvier figures.
The length is perfect for business environments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dL1144 Amazing updated classic dress with stunning fabric
This dress is stunning with fabric quality as well as fit not seen any longer. Just beyond thrilled to find dresses that fit properly to the waist and are not so short in length. Exhausted from trying to find things that fit. I will shop faithfully with JCrew-had no idea they would carry such quality in fit and fabric. Just love the option to order Talls as well as Petites and regular. Fit and fabric is most important. Would like more color options in most garments as black is overdone. What an amazing selection and options. How brilliant to offer such beautiful fabrics, forward thinking on the fine fabrics.
