Rated 1 out of 5 by CYSmith Petite Emmaleigh dress in Super 120s wool
I was half suspicious about the mixed reviews of this dress. I didn't believe those reviews and thought they were just personal opinions. I ordered the dress for petite 0 - I'm 5'2" and 112 lbs - and the dress was way too short for me. The actual dress did not look like the picture online - it was too short and not elegant at all to wear in the office. I used to trust J.Crew's online measurements now I'm worry about it. J. Crew needs to re-evaluate their quality controls and communications with their supplies in China or Asia. This is not a good sign for the company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 300445 Length is much shorter than advertised
I have to return this - I am only 5'3" and petite lengths are usually fine on me. This dress says "below the knee" in the description, yet the length in the petite dress is several inches ABOVE the knee. WAY too short to wear to work. Being somewhat height-challenged, I am always getting things hemmed shorter; I've never had a problem with a garment being too short. My local tailor said there is no ability to let out the hem on this dress because the fabric is cut short at the vent in the back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamie Definitely shorter than expected
The cut, fabric, and color choices this dress came in were all amazing, and as expected. Their suiting wool never fails me. However, this particular dress was indeed cut shorter than advertised, as mentioned by a previous reviewer- I did not take a tape measure to it but it definitely fell above my knees. I am petite (just under 5'2) and actually did manage to let the hem down about an inch or so with some finangling with the back vents (not an easy feat), but I loved the dress enough to deal with some imperfections at the back vent. Otherwise it is an incredibly flattering dress.

Love this dress! It fit me like a glove and looks very professional. I will definitely be wearing this often at work.
