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.
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.

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.
