James Perse Raglan Sleeve Sweatshirt Dress
Great mom dress
I am 5'10" ...125 pounds and based on reviews ordered size 2 . This would have been a great fitted date night dress, but i was looking for a comfortable mom going to the park dress. I exchanged for a size 3...much better. If you're tall and looking for a oversized sweatshirt dress, not sexy....definately not huge...order a size up.
On the fence
Hearing so many great things about this dress online, I think I was expecting more. When I received it in the mail. I was surprised how light and small it looked wrapped up in the bag. After taking it out I was really shocked how thin the material is. I am not a fan of thin material around my butt, so I think I might wear a slip with this if I wear to wear it by it's self. The only nice think about the thin fabric is that I was able to tuck it into jeans and it looked just like a top. The black is a heathered gray black, kind of looks worn out, looks okay with black leggings. I did wear the dress out to run a few errand and when I got back where my crossbody bag (the leather has some texture) rubbed on my hip the dress was extremely pilly. I got the pills of with one of those pill removers, so it wasn't too bad. I have washed it in a garment bag and tossed it in the dryer and that did not cause any pills. I think it did shrink, which is good b/c size 1 was long on my 5'4" frame and loose. I searched for many months online for a sweatshirt dress before ordering this one. There are not a lot to pick from and many are ugly. This one isn't perfect but much better than the ones I have seen. I got mine on sale, and would not want to pay full price for this.
Excellent casual dress
You wouldn't think that a sweatshirt dress could be chic and sexy, but this one is. It's adorable with a good necklace and booties. (And is the perfect thing if you need to wear loose-fitting clothes for some reason)
Cute, super comfortable, Run around town dress
This is the perfect, casual little day dress to pair with leggings to do just about anything in. It has a medium thick sweatshirt fabric, so doesn't really cling, but is fitted enough to show off your figure. You can dress it up too if you did want to wear it out to dinner. I've thrown on a little black fur and wool vest and some black, long crystal beads with it and it made the grade.
I ordered this in an X-Small and it is a perfect fit. I am 5'6" and 125lbs.
I will get a lot of use out of this one. I love James Perse products for softness and wearability.
