I was so disappointed when I opened the package and pulled out this sweater. The picture on the website showed the red as a wonderful, deep, slightly purplish red. It looked very classy, and I was anxious to wear it with black pants.
Imagine my surprise when I realized the red is more the color of a fire engine. Or a ripe tomato. Or a tacky Christmas stocking. I mean, we are talkin' SCREAMING RED here. If I wore this sweater, I'd feel as though I should also be wearing a Santa hat. This item will definitely be going back to J.Jill.
OK, so I'm addicted. I now have about 8 of the linen big shirts, and I really like them. This latest one, with the blue paisley print, is one of my favorites. While I have several solid-color ones, I like the printed ones slightly more because they don't show their wrinkles quite as much.
J.Jill, if you keep offering printed big shirts I'll keep buying them!
I love J.Jill's linen big shirts! I have at least 5 of them, in both solids and prints. They're so wonderful over linen pants. This latest purchase -- the embroidered linen big shirt -- is the prettiest one yet! I feel guilty raving over this shirt since I bought it on sale and it may no longer be available for others to buy. If it is, I highly recommend it.
I can hardly wait for warm weather so I can wear it!
I ordered both the black and the cream version, and I like them both very much. The style and fit are very flattering and they are lightweight, so will be perfect this summer. I'll probably wear them over my J.Jill linen pants.
This is one of five J. Jill linen big shirts I've ordered recently (a veritable feeding frenzy!) I love every one of them. I hope they'll offer the shirt in more prints and colors. I'm sure I'd buy more.
Button-front style with front and back princess seams. Back yoke. Front welt pocket and on-seam side pockets. Long sleeves roll and tab to 3/4 length. 37 1/2" above-knee length, 35 1/2" petite, 39 1/2" tall, 40" women’s. Cotton and spandex. Machine wash. Imported.
I was surprised that this dress fit just a bit snugly across my rear end, since J. Jill clothes usually fit me perfectly in a medium. Sadly, even if the dress had fit me well I still would have returned it because of the color.
When I ordered the greenish color, I thought it would be a bit more green. Obviously, no two computers show colors the same way, so it is sometimes hard to tell what the exact shade is. Unfortunately, the color of this dress harkened back to the bad old days, when J. Jill clothing all came in shades like Shale, and Putty, and Pond Scum. That was an ugly era, and I'm delighted that most of the brand's fashions have since become delightfully colorful and fun. The color of this dress, however, is just plain icky.
Our boat-neck pullover has a delightful intarsia daisy. Stripe detail on the reverse of the cuffs, hemline and back neckline. Dropped shoulders. Long sleeves. Low-hip length. Cotton, rayon and nylon. Hand wash or dry clean. Imported.
Our easy-fitting button-front shirt with yarn-dyed stripes and a front welt pocket. Dropped shoulders. Back yoke above soft shirring. Side vents. Low-hip length. Slightly longer in the back. Cotton. Machine wash. Imported.
I liked everything about this shirt except the fact that the hem in back hangs a couple of inches longer than the front. I'll be so happy when this stupid high-low hem fad disappears! Otherwise, a nice shirt.
Enjoy luxurious warmth in our open-front style that has the fullness and flexibility of a poncho. Knit from chunky marled yarns for softness. Knitted-in pockets. Low-hip length. Oversized sweater pin included. Acrylic, wool and alpaca. Hand wash or dry clean. Imported.
I'm happy with this sweater overall, but don't recommend wearing it over dark-colored tops. The first time I wore it I paired it with a dark brown long-sleeved tee. I loved the way it looked until I noticed that my entire tee shirt was covered with small, fuzzy oatmeal-colored hairs. I don't know if it will continue to shed after it has been washed, but initially I recommend wearing the sweater with only light-colored tops.
