The idea is great but a few flaws...
This skirt is so beautiful and looks as great on. Although the skirt isn't really true to the description. My first concern: It is described as a double-knit jersey. When in reality the skirt material is more like a soft-but-thick wool. The waist band hugs nicely however because of the material, the very top of the skirt makes me look like I am fuller-figured (I'm am 4ft 11in, size 0). Because of this it doesn't work well with crop tops or anything tucked in as shown in the picture, and only works with longer tops or t-shirts. Second concern is that there is a white modesty lining underneath. I don't personally like it; it feels like a soft jersey material that doesn't 'flick' well with the rest of the skirt. However other people might appreciate that their bum doesn't show! I am keeping this skirt but only after a long and hard debate - It took about a week for me to decide!

A little funky
This dress looked so cute in the pictures, but the fit was bizarre. The sleeves were really wide, but the waist was really snug. I have broad shoulders, and the shoulder/ chest area was really big on me. The overlay is kind of rough and does not drape well, so it stood away from my body. Overall, not my favorite, I had to return it.

Small Waist, Large Arms
I had high hopes for this dress but had to send back, here's why: I ordered my usual size (M, I'm 5'8, size 6-8, curvy) and I couldn't fit it over my waist!! If I tried, it would have ripped the dress. The sleeves.top part of the dress were large (as previously reviewed) and baggy but the lace overlay around the waist was very tight and unforgiving. If you are not curvy or have big hips this dress may work for you.

If it was only a Small
I love this top, it is beautiful, for the price the fabric is much nicer than I expected. I am super happy with my purchase. The only qualm I have is that I ordered a medium, which fight fine at the waist, but was very big at the chest. This is a difficult top to wear with a bra, so I figured the top would be more true to size. I opted to take it in professionally because I actually preferred tops to be tailored when I cannot wear a bra with them rather than returning it. Overall l I would suggest this but if you are small-chested, a small might be a better fit.

Poorly Made
Bought this top in my usual size, large. I was hesitant about my purchase from the beginning and should have sent it back right away but wanted to give it a chance. I put it on for the first time and the back button popped off. Wore it regardless and after about 10 minutes noticed the sheer part had completely unraveled itself from the rest of the top. Extremely disappointed and will never buy J.O.A again.

So cute
Cinches in at the waist and then flares out with pleated front -- so flattering! I'm 5"4 and 110lb, Small was perfect. The length is flattering if you are much taller! Going to wear with a bandeau top because of the plunging front, but overall this piece exceeded expectations! :)

great dress - still needed some tailorin
i wear a 29 and ordered a medium but have a smaller bust so needed to get the top part tailored to pull in some of the fabric. it's not the softest material - bandage-y, but the dress is really flattering otherwise!

Reese Witherspoon Has It.
Reese Witherspoon has this exact same skirt. I had my mind made-up that I was going to get it even before I saw Reese photographed in it. But I must admit, seeing that was the icing on the cake. I am not disappointed. I got it at 25% off; but I think it is worth the full price. I think Reese may have gotten it shortened because I am 5'8" or so and it is very long on me. I love it because I am also about a size 14 to 16 (think GAP zippered skirts) and it fits me. The skirt also reminds me of a less formal version of the white skirt that Grace Kelly wears when she first appears on screen in REAR WINDOW with Jimmy Stewart. If you can afford it, can get it shortened if need be, and love skirts, I suggest BUY BUY BUY.

cute skirt, nice pattern
The skirt fit true to size, the pattern was nice and I loved the pockets. Being only 5'4" the length was too long for the amount of material. If I hadn't needed it immediately for a trip, I would have had it altered.

cute skirt
This is a very cute skirt, I just didn't care for the material. Also, I am 5'4" and it felt like too much material for me.

Adorable top
I love JOA . It is my second item and it hasn't disappointed me. Actually the top i have got is even better than I expected: nice floral print , fine materials and easy to match with dark / white pants or jeans. I thought i would wear it very often in this summer.

Simply gorgeous
This baby doll top is just so well made . The detailed pin tuck, lace and organza layering accents is tastefully done and makes it look expensive. The S is a perfect fit on my 5'2' 100 lb, 34B frame frame. The organza is a tad itchy but it makes the top unique - so it's easy to forgive. It looks a LOT nicer than the photo which doesn't show the detailing at all. Best buy for me. A steal on sale.
