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.

The bracelet looks prettier on the picture than in real life. Bigger and lesser quality than expected. Mine also came without the removable waxed cotton cord with metal button and loop closure. It pulls the hairs of my wrist. Not worth at all for regular price. Maybe worth at 50% discount.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This sweater is a silk-cotton-polyester blend. It is soft, warm, and very comfortable, but runs a bit too large for my taste. I am 5 feet 1 inches tall, 140 pounds, curvy, and the Medium Petite, which I usually wear, is very loose. I would have liked it a tad closer to the body (but not 'glued' to it), so a Small Petite would have fit better in this case. Since I am abroad, I do not want to go through the hassle of the return, and will keep it, but for this particular garment I would recommend that if you want it relaxed order your size, if you want it to show your figure, go one size down.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
