I bought the mauve color and I could not be happier. It is all cotton, light and airy, and it matches a wide variety of tops and dresses. At the sale price it is a bargain. What else is there to say?
Yes, I recommend this product.

The hues in this scarf are vibrant and attractive. It goes very well with the cotton striped tee and the Newport cardigan, as pictured in one of the catalogs. But it also pairs well with any thistle or nightshade tones, and jeans. At the sale price, it is a great buy!

These infinity scarves are a caress to one's neck. Warm and comfy. The neutral hues can be paired with almost any top/jacket. I bought the black and the gray ones, and would get the beige if it were still available. Mine came with some folding marks due to packaging, which I was able to remove by placing it in the dryer at low heat for around 10-15 minutes.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This sweater is so soft and comfy that I do not want to take it off. I bought the freesia color, and I find it a beautiful hue. It pairs to perfection with the striped perfect v-neck tee, and the full bloom infinity scarf, just like pictured in one of the catalogs. It might be a tad tight, so I would recommend ordering a size up for those who prefer loose-fitting clothes.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Maybe a tad too tight. I am usually an M, and I believe an L would have been less hugging, so go up a size if you like your garments loose. It pairs wonderfully with the Newport cardigan, and the full bloom infinity scarf, just as pictured in one of the catalogs. A very "summery" look, that I love.
Yes, I recommend this product.

After all the reviews about "expecting," I was skeptical to order this tunic; however, I was pleasantly surprised. I am 145 lbs, ordered a medium, and the fit was perfect. It is loose on the midriff, for those of us who want to hide the muffin top and/or handles. Not only it does not look like a pregnancy garment, but I find it has a very juvenile flair. The tee is not very thick, so it provides skin coverage without being too hot. The thistle color (and probably all others too) can be paired with many of the JJill scarves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have several JJill wraps and all of them are a wonderful wardrobe asset. These ones (I have the lemongrass and the white) are light, yet warm. Very elegant, and lend a sophisticated touch to any outfit with which they are paired. Plus, at the sale price they are a steal! I hope JJill will offer the cashmere one again!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have several of these Wearever dresses. Their cuts are all very flattering to the body. The long length is also very becoming. The fabric is perfect for traveling because it does not wrinkle, and not too heavy to be worn during summer. The designs are casual, yet elegant. I personally prefer a side slit rather than a back slit, but everything is perfect in this garment. Hopefully, JJill will continue to offer them. I usually wear an M petite, but in this particular case an S petite also works for me, for a more close to the body style.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I went for this dress based on the many positive reviews, but I am disappointed. There is no tailoring, just two pieces of material sewn together with minimum styling, no pockets. The linen is very thin and the dress is not lined; no wonder it wrinkles so much. Acceptable as sale item, but a rip-off at regular price.
No, I do not recommend this product.

The fit is perfect; loose enough to hide imperfections without looking like a potato sack. Good quality for a basic, casual dress, and a nice change from the rayon ones, even though both wrinkle a lot. Very colorful; can be paired with white, beige, pink, orange and green cardigans. Machine wash, but needs ironing after drying. Excellent value for money when on sale, but not so much at regular price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Would the perfect cardi in Red Ginger go well with this dress?

Topic:color
I think it would, but something redder, more like "pimento" would match even better.

Soft cotton pencil skirt in a fresh floral print. Elasticized waist. Shaped with darts at the back waist.
 

What is the blue/gray shirt shown with the skirt? Would "deep blue" go with the skirt?

Topic:Fabric
I bought this skirt, the pearl gray linen blouse, and the lemongrass tank to make a set, and they match perfectly together. I can also replace the lemongrass tank with a white, grey or black one, and they all match very well too. No blue shades would match, I believe.

What are the other colors in this dress? What color sweaters would go with it?

This dress would look great paired with the wrap in the lemongrass shade.

Silk yarns give our fine-gauge sweater an extra-soft feel. Relaxed fit. V-neckline with rolled trim. Long sleeves. Dropped shoulders. Straight silhouette with a ribbed shirttail hem. Low-hip length. Silk, polyester and cotton. Hand wash or dry clean. Imported.
 

Does this sweater run large?

Topic:Size
Yes, it does! I am 5 feet 2 inches, 140 pounds, curvy, and the medium petite was large. I would have fitted without a problem in a small petite. This seldom happens to me with JJill garments. If you want a relaxed look, buy your usual size, but if you want your curves to show, go one size down.

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