MADE BY EILEEN FISHER EXCLUSIVELY FOR GARNET HILL A modern update to an easy knit, this dress in washable Italian wool swings with accordion pleat detailing.
This dress has a more relaxed fit than pictured, and is knit of lightweight Italian wool.
My husband bought me this dress as a gift so I felt obligated to keep it. He usually does very well buying for me at Garnet Hill and Eileen Fisher but this time it was a total bust. I have tried to wear this dress several times but inevitably take it off and wear something else instead. The fabric of this one just doesn't work. It's a bit scratchy for wool so light. The dress clings to tights (even with static guard) yet is far too transparent to wear with bare legs. A slip doesn't resolve the issues. So I have stored this dress in my closet for several months but have never worn it. I doubt I ever will. I wish I had returned it but just didn't want to hurt my husband's feelings.

I purchased two of these dresses when first reduced because they looked great for travel. Are a bit spendy at full price. But I love the ease of this dress that can take me anywhere from casual to business to dinner with some dynamic jewelry or a colorful scarf. Wearing it now and feeling fabulous. Please have this available in navy in the fall!
I am tempted to buy this dress in multiple colors. Living in Texas, this is the perfect dress for fall and winter, lightweight quality wool. Looks good on my curvy body, loose but not baggy--downright flattering!
I lusted after this dress for a loooong time before finally ordering one. Wow, can this be worn in a lot of ways. Tights, shooties, boots, scarves, long necklaces, pashmina, jacket. It can be dressed up or down, boho chic or workplace appropriate. I receive so compliments each time I wore it. The fabric is not too warm/heavy, it is Comfortable (notice the capital "C"), and the fit is flattering. Waiting for later this year to purchase another in blue or grey.
This dress is so beautiful on and fits me perfectly! The material is soft and is holding up well! I wear them all the time and wish I could have bought the dress in Navy but it was sold out! Is a dress that you can wear anywhere and I look forward to taking it with me when I go traveling too! Worth every penny!
I just returned to the site to buy a second dress in a different color but it is sold out...! I can understand why. I bought this in brown and it is a beautiful dress with a great silhouette. Looks terrific with a big scarf and boots, or a lovely necklace and dress heels! Love, love!
I bought the small, which was my True Fit recommendation. This dress #1 is absolutely not worth the full price and #2 even the small was enormous. It was like I was wearing a wool sack. And so thin...I was so disappointed that I sent it back the day it arrived. Such a shame as I had been looking forward t a new winter staple.

We provide garment measurements under the "Measurements" tab, as another source to assist you in getting the right fit.
love this dress, it's comfortable, a good length, and i can wear it for work, or also for casual occasions. It is flattering on me-I am 5' tall and a size 2p i usually wear it with boots and tights. i have it in black and just got it in the navy color. please be warned that the website picture makes the navy dress look much lighter and blue rather than a dark navy, which is disappointing as I'd wanted a little more variety but i like the dress enough to just keep it.
Love the idea of this dress, love the details, length and drape. Sadly it is not for me. I read Ivet's review from 11/26/14 saying how well she likes it on her full figured frame and purchased it on that recommendation. I too, am a busty gal, but this dress hangs horribly on me, the empire waist hits me at just the wrong place (mid bust) and the whole thing pulls backwards. Just awful. Eileen Fisher is a great designer, just not for bodies like mine. Back it goes.

Great dress. Comfortable, 3/4 sleeve length is perfect-don't have to worry about sleeves that are too long. Nice woven wool which is warm but not too warm. Can be dressed up or not. Looks great with scarf and boots.
I've already worn this dress twice and I really love it. I've been wanting a sweater style dress for a while. It's extremely comfortable and flattering as it skims over my middle. I'm 5'7" and it hits right above the knee.
This will be my go-to dress all winter! Some fabrics can be itchy for me and I thought this would be but I was wrong. Very comfortable and flattering. Easy to change the look with accessories. Very, very happy this isin my closet.
This travel friendly dress is just what I have been looking for. It folds down to almost nothing yet comes out of the suitcase ready to go. The fabric is a little thin and the length is shorter than it appears to be on the model. I am usually a PM but ordered M and the length is good.
I was instantly drawn to the classic lines of this dress and had to have it. It's everything I hoped for - gorgeous styling, quality material and construction, warm and toasty for winter - except that on my 5'10" frame, it's not a dress. For you tall ladies out there, if you're not comfortable showing several inches of leg above the knee, don't pass on this dress - just bust out the leggings and wear it as a tunic. With some fun jewelry and cute flats, it's very stylish and professional enough for the workplace, especially if you like to bring a little funk to the office :)
I love Eileen Fisher and this dress is a classic. I bought one last year and loved it so much that I bought one for my daughter for Christmas. I know she will find it to be her "go to" dress just like me.
