Ponte with an edge — the classic sheath is dressed up with leather trim at the neck and arms. The fit is smooth and sleek, thanks to Italian ponte knit with structure and a bit of stretch. Sleeveless. Knee length. Back zip with back vent. Viscose/nylon/spandex. Silken lining. By Eileen Fisher. Imported.
This is your go-to dress when you want to look really good. And, here's the good part... it stretches. And here's the really good part... even the lining stretches. (No need for a slip.) It hugs your body and makes you look better than you do. The leather trim is a fine detail and doesn't show as leather. But the fit is fantastic. And you can eat and get tired and you got give in the matte black dress that is snug against you but very forgiving. It feels great on and you will be taking selfies before you get out the door cuz it is THAT good. Excellent shape on the neckline, good fit around the arms. Has a zipper but I didn't use it because it has stretch to the fabric, which is not flimsy and thin but rather med weight and just fantastic. I got it in the petite large cuz I was afraid it would be one of those tight dresses and the large would give me more roominess but hold the shaped waist up where it belonged and that really worked for me. I put a cashmere knit fitted jacket with it and a couple fine necklaces and felt like a million bucks. Doesn't happen often. Do yourself a favor and get this fab dress. I've been getting an Eileen Fisher dress here and there and they are great but this... this is something else. For those of us who aren't kids anymore it is a great deal of fun to get into a little black dress and a pair of pretty pumps and have some sizzle. Wore it for my birthday dinner out.
