Our ultrasoft open-front sweater is double knit with a different color yarn for the interior and exterior. Cuff the long sleeves to create contrast. Relaxed fit. Side-entry patch pockets.

Very good but not great
PostedMay 16, 2017
Extremely comfortable. True to size. However, I would not call it "ultrasoft." Pima tees or the "soft touch" tops are softer than this one, and that takes one star from this hoodie. Also, cuffs become undone often, so I decided to add a couple of stitches to keep them in place. Other than that, and the fact that it is pricey when not on sale, very nice, versatile topper. Goes with almost everything and can be dressed up or down. Love that it has pockets!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Soft and comfortable, but just OK
PostedMay 10, 2017
On the positive side, this dress is soft and comfortable.
On the negative side, it is very difficult to button the sleeves up. The buttons don't go into the holes easily, and I do not have any type of problem with my hands (i.e.: arthritis). It must be nearly impossible for people with limited finger mobility. It does wrinkle, so it needs ironing. It tends to slide backwards. And it's expensive if not on sale.
Overall, just another dress, which lacks wow factor. Recommend only because it is comfortable to wear and when on sale; otherwise, I would pass this one.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Very "springy." Matches most outfits
PostedApril 14, 2017
This is a delicate necklace, shiny but just enough. I have been pairing it with almost every outfit in the week since I bought it. Love the chain that can be worn longer or shorter. Material seems of good quality. Hope it will last and not fade. On sale, I find the price reasonable. I also bought the two tone hydrangea earrings, and have received a lot of compliments on both items.

Not becoming to full figured petites
PostedMarch 29, 2017
I thought the diagonal lines in this dress would be slimming, but I was wrong. I am 5 feet 1, 145 lbs. I ordered the medium petite, which fit right, but the pattern made me look huge! Sadly, it will go back. I have the same style in blue and green shades, with a much smaller pattern, and that one looks great. This pattern is definitively not a good choice for petites!

Going to get it in more colors!
PostedMarch 11, 2017
I was very reluctant to ordering this tee after all the negative reviews on the shoulder stitching of the boat neck. I took a chance based on the excellent price for the white color, and I am really glad I did.
While it is true that the boat neck could have been constructed differently, I do not see the lumping or padding that other reviewers mention. Yes the two ends of the boat neck are sewn at the shoulders, but that is what it looks like, and it does not bother me.
An additional quality is that the white cotton fabric is soft and light, and yet not see-through. I am so pleased with this pima cotton tee that I will order more colors.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Everything about this skirt is a plus
PostedJanuary 27, 2017
This is THE LBS or "long black skirt" to go to. Indispensable wardrobe staple. The fabric is light and soft, but not paper-thin or clingy. Slimming cut, can be dressed up or down, and can be matched with almost any top, worn with heels, flats or boots. I particularly like the side slits, but others might find them a bit too high. To me, everything about this skirt is a plus.

Better than expected!
PostedJanuary 5, 2017
This sweater is not very thick, but that is probably a good thing because it can be worn in three seasons, instead of only in winter. For winter, it needs a little beefing up to be sufficiently warm. I am currently wearing it with a fleece vest and it feels soft, and very comfortable. My hopes were not high for this garment because of the synthetic fibers content, but I have been reaching to it quite often, to the point that I decided to get it in more colors now that it is on sale. It runs true to size (at 5 feet 2, and 145 Lbs, I wear a MP), can be dressed up or down, and if you want it a little roomier, I suggest going up one size. The length is right both for trousers and skirts. Quite surprised to read other customers found it ill fitting, might have to do with inconsistent sizing indeed. I just hope it will wash well!
Yes, I recommend this product.

The cuttest thing
PostedJanuary 5, 2017
This little piece of fabric is so versatile! A refreshing new style instead of the usual necklaces or bracelets. The colors are vibrant and go well with most of the hues in JJill's latest palette. I particularly like it with the topaz shade, but can be worn with cream, navy and other dark blues. A touch of life for the winter darks that will keep looking great well into summer. Amazing what such a small piece can do!

This IS the top for winter
PostedJanuary 5, 2017
I am just sorry I found it too late. This top is warm and not super thin as most of the other "winter" tops of this season. The fit is nice and comfortable. I just tried it at the store and had to have it. Unfortunately, there were no more colors/sizes available. Hopefully, JJill is reading and will bring it back next winter. I am tired of the ever thinning fabrics. The sleeves don't seem raglan to me, and I wish JJill would include the weight of the fabric in the description of their garments.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Mixed feelings
PostedDecember 23, 2016
I like this top modern look. The 5% silk content makes it soft to the touch; however, the 5% wool makes it itchy, at least for me. Also, it kind of clings to the midsection, which does not help to disguise a tummy. And yes, the neck is weird: folded towards the inside and kept in place with just two stitches at the sides, which makes it look like they wanted to save a few cents and time on the finishing. Other than this, I like the tunic length and the overall appearance. At the sale price, it is probably worth keeping.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Open stitches and thick-and-thin yarns give our pullover sweater rich texture. Functional buttons along the left side give you the option of wearing them opened or closed. Layer over a tank or cami. Boat neckline. 3/4-length sleeves.
 

How thick/warm is this sweater? Can it be worn comfortably in the hot months of summer in places like DC or will it be too hot?

Our soft woven-silk infinity scarf with a floral print.
 

What colors are in this scarf, & what colors & their names are in this scarf, & besi the matching wearever print shirt? match this scarf?

What are names of colors in this scarf? It looks like pinks, several greens, and peaches, bellini, shrimp, or bisques go with this scarf? I assume solids would go best. What shirts would match in the (in order of length preference) XLT, W2X, XL? Thanks.
Topic:colors in scarf names?, matching shirts?, no wool alpaca etc.
Hi, the scarf has a black background; the leaves are olive and sage green; the flowers are a mix of pale pink, peach, Bellini, lobster, and berry colors; there are also white flowers. I have matched this scarf with a wide palette of pink tops, from powder pink to coral. It also looks great with beige. It makes my little black dress look stunning. It is very versatile, I have found I can mix it with many of my tops and I just don't want to take it off!

It also pairs beautifully with coral or pink, and even yellow. It is hard to find a color that will not match. Maybe just red and black.
