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.
At almost 5'5" the dress reaches just below my knees. It skims any problems in the tummy area, it's easy wash and hang to dry, and it allows any choice of accessories from - scarf, belt, leggings, or necklace to no-time-for fuss-and-out-the-door. It is super soft and feels cool in the hottest of weather. I bought the new cobblestone color as soon as it became available and it joins the other four colors I already have!
The dress is so comfortable, fabric is soft! I love the fit of it, it is fitted across the shoulders and bust and drapes off of the body just enough to be loose but not look like a tent! The length is just above my knees and I am 5'8". I think it is very flattering. I ordered a small which is my normal GH size and the fit was spot on. This was perfect for a casual party and will be a comfortable work alternative too.
This dress is easy to wear, easy to pack, and can be dressed up or down. Sometimes I feel like I swim in Eileen Fisher's clothes, but the cut of this dress is totally flattering. I'd like it if the fabric were just a touch more substantial, but even as it is I know I will get tons of use out of it.
I am still getting compliments on my EF dress. I like simple classic dresses. It can be dressed up or down with leggings and heels, cowboy boots, and clogs. This was my 2nd EF dress and I just ordered my 3rd.
I bought this EF dress from GH circa 2 years ago & I love it! I wear it w/leggings although you can wear it alone. It's very comfortable, high quality, and it's my "go to" dress. It's also a very good price. My only wish is this dress would come in other colors like forest green, cranberry/wine, & a deep magenta-rose. I don't care for blues & grays which this dress has come in. I am tempted to order another dress in black because I like it so much. We'll see. I hope this dress works for you.
Easy to wear, comfortable in the Boston summer heat. I expect it to take me through the fall with leggings and boots. Completely work appropriate (I belt it and wear it with flats), but perfect for a night out. I'm 5'2'', 125 pounds, 36C athletic body. I ordered the petite small. The fit is perfect. I have it in blue and black and when I'm running late or need to look professional w/o being stuffy these two are my go-to summer dresses.
This dress will become a staple in my wardrobe - perfect to wear for various occasions - dress up or down. True to size for Eileen Fisher clothes (I wear a size smaller then some other brands). Travels well.
Love this dress as it is the softest cotton, looks great belted and dressed up or down. First ordered it in Black, then blue and just received the grey on sale! Have traveled, worked and run around in this dress for the past couple of years! Hope you make a long sleeve and a sleeveless soon!
This is a comfortable, well made dress that can be worn casual or slightly more dressed up. The fabric is a great weight and the blue color is very pretty in this season's version. I usually order a small in EF, but after reading the reviews, decided to go with an XS and am glad I did. That being said, it's a bit snug in the shoulders and upper arms which is fine for my body type but might not work well for someone with bigger shoulders and a larger bust/arms. I do love this dress and know I will get a lot of use from it from Spring to Fall. Love Eileen Fisher, especially on sale!
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.
