I liked the look of this tunic on the website, so I ordered a black one. It arrived today, and I'm disappointed. Although the size is just right, the style just doesn't work for me. The curved seam/pocket styling emphasizes my hips, making me appear broader than I am, even in black. Horrors! I'm actually fairly slim, so this is disconcerting. The real deal-breaker for me is the scoop neckline, which is cut much lower than it appears in the photo. I'm going to return this tunic, which makes me sad since I usually have good luck with JJill products.
Pique-knit slub yarns give our easy pullover tunic its unique texture. Crew neckline with ribbed trim. Princess seams lead to softly draped pockets. Long sleeves. Side vents. Banded trim at hemline. Low-hip length. Cotton and modal rayon. Machine wash. Imported.
I'm very pleased with this tunic. The red color is just right -- bright enough to feel cheery but not so bright as to look like a Santa suit. The fit is good, including sleeve length. This is a style that can be dressed up or down, and worn with jeans, or tights, or leggings, or wide-leg pants.
The only surprise I had was how very light-weight the tunic is. It's definitely more a spring time garment than a cold weather item, unless you wore something under it.
The linen shirt you know and love, refreshed with woven two-toned shading. Long sleeves. Rounded hem and gusseted side vents. Softly washed. Relaxed fit. Shell buttons. Low-hip length. Machine wash. Imported.
Good grief, I need to join Linen Big Shirts Anonymous. I think this pink one is my ninth or tenth Big Shirt from J. Jill! Like all the others -- prints and solids alike -- this one is great. The color is lovely, and the fit is loose and roomy the way I like it in a big shirt. Do these shirts wrinkle? Of course they wrinkle, because they're linen. If it bothered me, I would iron them, but I think a bit of wrinkling is all part of the charm of linen.
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.

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.
