Certified organic cotton with Lycra®
I needed a new LBD for traveling, and I ordered this one due to its great reviews. Yes, it indeed is all that others have raved about. The feel of the cotton is soft and not too thin, and the cut of the dress is perfect over my aging figure. Dress up - - dress down possibilities. Affordable for me only when it went on sale.
I first ordered this dress in a 'regular' and was unhappy on the length of the dress, so I re-ordered in a 'petite' and the sizing was just not right. Truly disappointed in the fitting, and I really wanted to like it.
This dress is classic, comfortable, hangs beautifully and of excellent quality. I'm 5', 118 lbs and purchased the PM because I am larger busted. The PS was a little tight in the bust. Length hit at bottom of my knee which is where I like it. Dress up with jewelry, add a nice sweater or shawl, a versatile piece. Purchased the cobblestone color.
I really wanted to like this. I love the idea. But the fabric is kind of stiff rather than drapey. It hangs straight down from my bust line. Since my bust is much larger than my waist, it makes my body look like a brick. The style is probably better for women whose bust and waist measurements are similar.
This is an awesome dress. The wight and the soft material are perfect for summer. Cobblestone is a beautiful colour. However, unfortunately, the sleeves did not work for me. They are very short, and make my very large arms make even larger. The rest of the dress fit great - I am 5'2", 130 lbs and ordered size M. I am very, very sad, but this dress is going back.

We agree, the weight and fabric of this dress are perfect for summer. We're sad to hear the styles of the sleeves didn't work for you. Give us a call if we can help with a freight free exchange to find a dress that will better suit you.
I wanted to try this dress, since it had gone on sale. It's a unique design in that you have a choice of being comfortable around the bust (and way too loose around the rest of your body) or snugly fitted around the bust (and nicely flowing around the rest of your body. It's an A-shape for sure, and I'd prefer if it were a little more evenly tapered. However, it's comfortable, soft, and will be nice for summer. Eileen Fisher utilizes similar color palates from previous seasons, so I have an E.F. scarf that will go perfectly with the Cobblestone. All in all, a nice summer shift.
A very nice simple basic dress, the cut is flattering and skims the curves nicely. Its a good wardrobe staple. Lovely thick fabric- nice quality I do wish it came in better colors; a royal blue would be great in this dress, the grey is a little boring!
I purchased this in cobblestone & the color didn't work with my ash blonde hair & cool complexion. I am 5'6", 163 lbs & usually wear a size 12. I ordered size Lg & although it fit in the bust, it was too large everywhere else. Unfortunately it looked very blah on me so back it goes.

I purchased the black dress last year and wore it out. Well, not really, but I washed the black dress so much I use it for more casual wear this year. New, the black dress has a finish which looked quite expensive. I wore it with pearls and a sweater to dinner.
This year I purchased a new black dress for work and dressier occasions and the cobblestone. I love the cobblestone dress, it looks gray in some light but contains the brown tones I look better in.
I love the style, it is comfortable, flattering, and can be worn leggings, tights, or sandals. It is practical but something I pull out to look presentable anywhere. Love them.
And because I am not a circus, I have no need for a circus tent, not even one that is constructed of lovely knit fabric.
I wanted to like this one, really I did, but it's just so shapeless and unflattering that it had to go back. Usually a size medium/8, I ordered the "small" in this dress, following GH's sizing advice. The size was correct. The cut was not correct for me. Perhaps if you are 8 months pregnant, it will work for you.
