This is probably one of the nicest, cutest garments I have bought from JJill. The fit is perfect; the cotton of which it is made has such a soft, warm feel to it, that at first I thought there was some wool in it. The asymmetrical A line style is quite becoming, and the pattern and hues very attractive. It looks great with jeans (as pictured), but it will give lots of life to a little black dress or, in my case, a long gray dress I have. Pair it with some dangling/glittering earrings and you have a full evening outfit. I cannot say enough good things about this sweater.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have bought these tops for many years, and I still have a few of the old ones. The weight of the cotton used for the old ones is almost twice the weight of the current ones. I am all for layering, but also for quality, and the thinner newer tops are not holding as well as the old ones. Other than that, the fit is as good as always, and the shades as beautiful. JJill, please don't do away with quality!
Yes, I recommend this product.

As usual, this skirt comes in a beautiful pattern, is incredibly soft, and has an excellent fit. However, these skirts used to have pockets, and now they are gone. They also used to have a bit more tailoring. They way they are made now, they seem overpriced when not on sale. So I will wait for the specials, and for JJill to bring back the pockets.
Yes, I recommend this product.

What can one say about a pair of socks? The fit well, they are somewhat thick, but very plush and comfy, and keep my feet really warm. I like the marbled pattern, and they wash well. I am getting a couple more pairs before they disappear at the sale price.

Add this poncho to a pair of jeans and shirt or tee, and you will transform the outfit. This shade goes with almost all colors in the wardrobe, and can be topped with almost any color scarf or necklace. I find myself wearing it constantly, and getting compliments on it every time. It is a "fresh" poncho, meaning that it will not produce much warmth, but thus perfect for summer nights. Good quality material and craftsmanship. Just be careful of the jewelry and purse you wear with it, as it might get tangled with the open stitch and pull some yarn threads.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have JJill's linen big shirt in several colors. The last addition to my collection, the pearl grey, is as good in quality as all the others, and very versatile. It pairs nicely with the grey tank and stitched poncho. It can be dressed down with jeans and up with a pencil skirt. Necklaces and scarfs of almost any color will match this shade. Sizing is right on target. It is easy to iron, and a very soft linen, unlike some other stiff ones. Great wardrobe staple, especially when on sale.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This turtleneck is extremely comfortable. The neck is not too tight, as it sometimes happens with other brands. I love the quality; the cotton is still soft and silky after several washes, an the cocoa color is a beautiful neutral hue which I can pair with almost all others: black, brown, purple, red, orange, beige. So sorry the grey one is no longer available in my size. This is an almost daily staple for me during Autumn/Winter/Spring seasons. And the sale price plus 30% off is the cherry on top of the cake!

This is the essential layering white tee. The cotton is soft, not very thin, but not thick either, with a fit that helps hide any imperfections. At the sale price it´s a great value and I would buy it in more colors if there were not so many other JJill t-shirts to choose from!
Yes, I recommend this product.

This poncho is light, but very warm. It can be worn all throughout Autumn, Winter, and Spring. It fits in a purse, for when evenings get chilly. It gives an edge to any attire, whether casual or more formal. A really versatile piece, plus the colors are vibrant, to keep spirits up on those grey, sunless mornings. Endless combinations possible with t-shirts, scarves and necklaces.

I usually love JJill pants and leggings. Not this time. These are not leggings at all; to give them such a name is misleading. They are skinny jeans. I was looking for true leggings. Also, the fit is not great, especially at the top, and I hate the horizontal back seam at the knee level. Any other pants/leggings from JJill have been better that these. I will keep them because I bought them very discounted, but I will stick to your traditional jeans/leggings.

Is the front and back identical, so you can wear the long side of the poncho on whichever side you wish (left or right)?

Topic:design & atyle
Just remove the tag and wear it any which way you want. Front and back are indeed identical.

What color is Thistle Heather?

Thistle heather is true to the color depicted in the photo; close to the color of raspberries, I would say. A subdued fucshia-purple. The "heather" refers to the fact that there are some paler fibers mixed into the fabric. Hope this helps.

what to wear with white leggings and are they thinner or is it just me??

I have wanted white leggings for a while, saw them on sale and snapped up a pair. When I put them on I felt like a beached whale! The white seem to be thinner than other leggings I own (none by JJill) and show lumps and bumps more than I would expect. I might keep them if I had an idea of what to wear with them. I am tall - 5'10" - so most tunics don't even cover my tush; in these, I need something that is completely tush-covering!

Anyway, I appreciate any thoughts on if they are actually thinner than darker colors, and also outfit suggestions...thanks

(also - the option on "what is your body type" is badly written- I am "tall" but I am also "curvy" with a true hourglass, but I have to choose between them.)
Topic:Quality, outfits
Have you tried wearing them with regular dresses? Since you have the white, they might look good paired with summer style, airy dresses. Long winter sweaters might also work. And last but not least, you can wear the leggings, a skirt, and a shirt, for a very young look. Take a peek at some children/teen catalogs, and see how the girls combine their leggings. I was reluctant, thinking that such combinations would not look good on a grown up, but if done correctly, they actually are very stylish. Good luck!

Our light-as-air scoop-neck tee. Long sleeves. Shirttail hemline. Low-hip length. Pima cotton and modal rayon. Machine wash. Imported.
 

Is this a summer weight tee? Why is rayon in so many things this season? Is it the new cotton?

Topic:Fabric, Comfort
Indeed a Summer tee; or a Spring/Autumn one if layered. It is really thin as air, or whisper weight. Mine had pinholes around the trouser zipper area after wearing it only twice. I am now using it as a pajama top, and it is really comfy!

A shimmering, elasticized cross-strap style. 3" natural jute-wrapped wedge. Lightly padded, canvas-lined footbed and latex sole. Made in Spain. European sizes (USA equivalents): 37 (6–6 1/2), 38 (7–7 1/2), 39 (8–8 1/2), 40 (9–9 1/2), 41 (10).
 

Is the latex sole noisy when you walk/step?

In other words, is it a hard or soft sole?
Topic:material
Hi, I would say it is a hard sole because it is not flexible due to the platform to which it is glued, but it does not make any noise when walking either, at least not on the street, on carpets or wooden floors, which is where I mostly walk.

Length of this shirt

Low hip does not mean much when you are 4'9" tall. Can you tell me the actual length of a Petite Medium from neck to tail. Thanks

I am 5"1' and the regular one covers up to the bottom of my buttocks. The length from neckline to bottom is 28".

Whare are the care cleaning instructions for this item

Does this item require drycleaning? Or what are the washing instructions - does it require ironing?
Topic:Care
The instructions state "machine wash cold with similar colors" "and "warm iron if needed", but I wash them by hand with very good results, and do iron them because I like the seams very well pressed. However, I think it might be worn without ironing if removed quickly from the dryer.
