Another beautifully designed piece from J. Jill.
Please make it one of your tops available every season.
Easy care, it's appropriate for any occasion-- with jeans, leggings or dressy evening pants.
Flattering collar and covered placket make for versatility, wear plain or with a necklace or scarf.
Length is just right. I'm 5'5 and the Petite fits well. The Misses was too oversized.
Thank you for offering a " Perfect "Top". Keep up the unfussy designs.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A Classic and Versatile Tunic

Very flattering top: with neckline just deep and wide enough to frame your face and shoulders.
Length sits below the widest part of your body, giving a slimming illusion. Cut is perfect: not oversized yet not clingy. Ideal on its own or for layering.
Highly recommended.
J. Jill: this is a "keeper style" please offer it every season. Thanks!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I hope J. Jill will sell these ful-leg lcropped pants forever--they're a classic.
Ideal for travel as they're comfortable and the fabric always looks fresh and unwrinkled.
Can be dressy or casual.
Well designed--no bulkiness. Flattering to all figures. Good quality fabric and stitching details.
Thank you for an ideal wardrobe staple.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The best top--should be a J. Jill classic, available year round

I like the collar as it lends a very flattering neckline.
The top is versatile enough for casual or workday wear.
My only suggestion would be that future versions have buttons that blend rather than contrast.
Runs true to size. The fabric is good quality. Well-finished with good stitching at details and button holes.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Versatile styling: you can wear this sweater with everything.
It's both classic and very contemporary.
I like the style so much, I hope it's brought back in other knits and colors for each season.
It would be just right for travel as it's lightweight but roomy enough to
layer if needed.
The cashmere quality is fair.
I don't know whether the yarn will stand the test of time--but the style and fit definitely will.

What percent of the knit is composed of wool?

I'm allergic to wool and before I purchase, would like to know if this knit contains more cotton than wool.
Thank you.

Our versatile pullover dress has soft shirring at the back of the rounded neckline. Long sleeves. Knee length. Rayon and Lycra® spandex. Machine wash.
 

When you mention specific details, could you show them clearly, please-- for example the shirring on this dress. Thank you.

Details are key. A neckline should be shown without being covered by a scarf, for example. If a top is suitable to wear w/ leggings, we'd like to see where it falls on the leggings-- what's covered . . . what's not . . .

A warm-weather favorite in soft, relaxed linen. Full leg, elastic waist, on-seam pockets and slit at hem. 25" inseam, 23" petite, 28" tall, 25" women’s. Machine wash. Imported.
 

Would it be possible to design these without pockets ? Most clients do not need "extra upholstery" or bulk in this area.

Pocket items can easily be carried separately.
Less bulk looks better.
Thank you
