Eileen Fisher Viscose Jersey Boatneck Dress - Regular

MADE BY EILEEN FISHER EXCLUSIVELY FOR GARNET HILL The shape is great and the fabrication is even greater — a heavier-weight jersey that skims the body with grace. The simple, straight silhouette with a pretty neckline goes well with the three b's — belts, boots, 'n bags. Three-quarter sleeves. Above-knee length. Viscose/Lycra®. By Eileen Fisher. USA.

Not for me
Date:January 20, 2015
First - I simply LOVED how this dress looked on the model in the catalog.. Even my husband liked it. It's covered up enough for work yet not "old" or too stuffy -- just sexy enough.
But sadly, this did not work on my body. As another reviewer said, the dress at the right length has a body / mid-section-area that seems too big. I'm on the curvier side so the dress was kind of clingy at the thighs. It made for an odd fit: fitted over the thighs and loose around the stomach area. And the sleeves were quite tight on me --- which seem really strange given how loose the sleeves look in the picture and the fact that I have rather slender arms. I looked as if I were wearing a slinky maternity dress that was meant to be tight everywhere except for the belly area.
I feel bad giving this an overall 3-stars since everyone else reviewing itseems to really love it but I thought my review might help others.
I returned the dress, of course, and I decided not to reorder. I could not see how I could possibly order in a size big enough to fall loosely over my legs and upper arms and it not be a tent everywhere else.
That said, the quality appears to be very good. And I also gave 4-stars for value, because, if this fits you nicely, I think it is probably worth the price. It is versatile -- work, evening / special occasions, etc.
I think this probably works best on a woman with a more boy-ish frame? Or anyone who is very slender for her height.

Versatile Dress
Date:December 17, 2014
I bought this dress in black in a PP and sent it back due to the length being 2" shorter than I'm used to wearing. It was 2" above the knee. I had to have this dress so I re-ordered it in a XXS. Length was good falling just above the knee but the body was too big. I sent it back. I still had to have the dress. I re-corded the dress in black AND smoke! I'm glad I did. This is a versatile dress that can be a worn as a dress with heels, booties or sandals. It can also be worn as a tunic over leggings. I love that it dose not cling to the body but has a flattering shape. Simple and a classic wardrobe piece. The sleeves are 3/4 which I love. Lots of coverage and still sexy. As far as the length? I see that is the trend these days with dresses and I'm covered up enough to show a little leg. It's no higher than long shorts. It's stretchy, soft and comfortable. It's a chic look for sure.

Eileen Fisher brand is overpriced, but when on sale is a good deal. The fabric is really nice, not too heavy, but thick enough to hang nicely and not cling. Good as a tunic as well as dress.

Great Dress
Date:September 7, 2014
This is a very comfortable dress. I first ordered it in xs, but it seemed to be a little small, so Garnet Hill graciously sent me a small and told me to try them both and send back the best fit. The small is perfect. I am 5'1" and weigh 118. The dress comes a little above my knees. The fabric is so comfortable. I will get a lot of wear out of this dress.
