This is one of the J. Crew dresses Suz recommended in this post It's going back, because I look awful in dresses (sorry I don't know how to change the name of posts to something like "here" - any help on that would be appreciated). I have loved this dress since I saw it in their catalogue, and when Suz recommended it I decided to give it a go.

The top needs to be taken in a little, and I can do that alteration myself. The front center pleat is still tacked down, so it will be wider at the hem.

Honest opinions please, so that I am not blinded by my love of stripes and my love of J. Crew! With slight alterations to the top, is it a keeper? It doesn't pinch under the arms, I was trying to hold it back in the photo.

I also have the floral dress from J. Crew on order - they didn't have it in the store
