MADE BY EILEEN FISHER EXCLUSIVELY FOR GARNET HILL A modern update to an easy knit, this above-knee-length dress in Italian wool swings with accordion pleat detailing. Three-quarter sleeves. By Eileen Fisher.
This dress has a more relaxed fit than pictured, and is knit of lightweight Italian wool.
This will be my go-to dress for the foreseeable future. It's more stylish than the typical basic black dress, with its pleats and ribbed top. The dress is extremely comfortable, and (I've already washed it) washes really well. I can't wait to see how well it travels.
This dress was perfect for the night before my son's wedding. It was youthful and the extra small fit like it was made for me. The slate color was flattering and the fabric was soft and comfortable. I felt like a million bucks in it. Thank you, Eileen Fisher.
Bought this in the brown and love it. Can be dressed up or down, with tights and booties or boots. It is on the thinner side as other reviewers mentioned, but not in a negative way & half slip works. I'm 5'5 120 lb, pear shape. xs fit well. Happy I bought it!
I initially bought this dress a few months ago and returned it because I thought it was a little "scratchy." HOWEVER, I kept looking at it on line and I did love the way it fit; so when it went on Sale of the Day; I decided to give it another try. I ended up washing it first (in the washer, in a net bag) drying flat and voila….it was/is perfect. Could not believe how easily it washed/dryed and required no ironing! Comfortable, chic and a perfect weight for NorCal sinters. I wore with black tights to an outside, mid day event in LA and it was perfect in every way. Wore it for nine hours and I looked absolutely perfect from beginning to end of the day. I highly recommend this versatile piece for dressing up or down. It really is lovely Once again, EF presents us with a winner.
I have this in the now sold out Capers and in Peat with some discounts. Both colors are very good with my brown hair/eyes. I am 145 pounds, 5'6". This dress would fit someone a little heavier, shorter or taller than me in Medium. I could probably wear a small but I didn't bother trying the small on. Agree that you will need a half or full slip to keep this from clinging. However it is very forgiving in stomach hips. Great with boots of any height. The Peat is a very rich earthy brown with a hint of green undertones. Itchy factor sort of a non issue if you wear a cami and half slip. This dress oozes chic minimalism and simplicity. I really should give one of them back as a return...but....this goes so well to work and to any kind of outing from casual to dressy. Millions of ways to work it with scarf or pendant.
They aren't kidding when they say the fit is looser than the picture. Although I got the smallest petite size I looked like I was wearing a matronly dress. Hit to designer...if they made it look form fitting in the picture, then maybe that's what what we want it to do! Seems silly to show a picture, and then post a disclaimer in small print.
I've been a fan of EF for years. This is another great dress -- especially on those morning when you just have to jump and run into the day. This EF dress pulls you together easily. Just add the accessories and go..
Well if the dress looked on me like it does on the model I would have kept it. But it did not so I have returned the dress. It looked like a sack on me. I have no hips to speak of, I am more or less straight up and down, which is how I thought the model looked, but I don't look like that. Too bad it is really a very nice dress, just not for me.

Thank you for your note! We hope you remembered that our exchanges are always freight free when you returned the dress.
As usual with Eileen Fisher the product has great style, hangs nicely and will be a pleasure to wear. Looks great with black tights and boots, but I expect to switch it up and wear it some with heels, or flats over the holidays, with jewelry or scarves. The xsmall might be a tad skimpier than I expected, but with a slip it slides over whats there and feels good.
