MADE BY EILEEN FISHER EXCLUSIVELY FOR GARNET HILL The basic knit dress in soft certified organic cotton with a little Lycra® to maintain its flattering A-line shape. With its graceful ballet neck and cap sleeves, it's a versatile style that can be dressed up or down. Knee length. By Eileen Fisher. USA.
This is without question my favorite piece of clothing. After 8 yrs I had to reinvest and purchase a new black version after wearing it at least once a week in the warmer months. It is versatile, packs well and is flattering. I own it in multiple colors and am thankful that Garnet Hill continues to offer it as a standard piece!
I am 5'5", weigh 105 and usually order a size 2 or XS. So I did. The shoulders were way too tight so I returned the dress and ordered a small. It arrived and still the shoulders seem a bit skimpy, though better, the rest fits like a tent. Back it goes.

We do provide the garment measurements under the "Measurements" tab to assist you in getting the right fit.
This dress is really cute and true to size, although I will have to hem it (I'm 5'5'' so was surprised). I think it will be a real go to as the look can so easily be changed with different accessories. Would love it in more colors.
I love the simple sophistication of this dress. Great quality for price, especially for an Eileen Fisher piece. As do most of her pieces, runs big. I usually wear a small, but it was swimming on me so returned for an XS. Will travel nicely and change up easily with the addition of scarves, boots, leggings or sandals. Love it!
This dress falls beautifully and is great to dress up or down. It is compact for travel. My only disappointment is that it stretched out too much in the neckline to wear after 5 years, but I liked it enough to replace it. Maybe I shouldn't have stored it on a hanger. It is almost like a t-shirt.
I usually adore Eileen Fisher pieces. And I do love the material and general concept of this dress. However, the A line was far too wide for me. Look at the pic with the dress unbelted. When I belted the dress, I had quite a bit of excess fabric yet I feel that a smaller size would not have worked in the bust department (estimated as average).
Love this dress. It is the perfect a-line for me. Not too full in the hips but full enough. I am 5'6" and 132 lbs. So an 8 is my usual size. This dress is one of my favorites. It's perfect with leggings and a cardigan in the fall and winter. Spring and summer it could be worn alone with sandals. I bought the gray.
This great fitting fit and flare cotton dress is another must have in my wardrobe. I wear this dress to work during the summer with a low slung belt or summer scarf and linen sweater. It's an easy fit, but order down one size. Perfect length for a petite 5'2" like me
