    When I ordered this I chose it specifically because it was cheap and I thought it would be a good house dress to beat around in at home during the summer months. So I wasn't feeling very picky and assumed I'd have no complaints, but this thing is a mess. I got the blue & white checkered one. Firstly, it's HUGE, it's like wearing a tent. I ordered a medium (I typically take a size 8 dress) but this looks more like a size 14-16 if you ask me. Also, the material is very stiff. I washed it and line dried it and it's a mess, very stiff, very wrinkled and the hem crinkled and turned up all the way around. I refuse to iron a house dress - the wrinkles wouldn't matter so much if the fabric weren't so stiff. I saw some reviews saying it's great out of the dryer - maybe so, but I line dry all my clothes in the summer (when I would wear this dress) to save money and energy. I seriously couldn't imagine having any complaints with something to wear at home when no one sees me, but it's just so stiff and huge. I may put it in the dryer one time to see if I can at least shrink it a little, but I'm not thrilled with this at all and will probably end up re-purposing the material for a craft project.

    Okay, so maybe I look a little like my grandma in this jumper, but who cares. My grandma was cute and this thing is comfortable. It has large pockets, large enough for two eggs each. The fabric is a nice heavish, but breathable cotton. No special washing instructions, which is always a plus. It came out of the dryer practically wrinkle free.

    This jumper was a nice quality cotton- and well constructed but the sizing was extreme. I bought a medium and it was huge.

    For just a few dollars, this is a great work-at-home or work-in-the-garden dress. It might not be fashionable, but it's very sweet in its own way. The fabric is nicely woven and substantial -- not at all sheer or flimsy. Comes out of the dryer beautifully.

    If you are a medium order a medium and wash and dry it. It will shrink. It's a basic plain dress to run errands. It's comfortable not glamorous.

    I gave this a 3 star because of it's appearance. I give it a 5 for comfort. It's very simple straight old fashion dress. Good for a house dress or good for

    farmers market shopping. Runs a bit big.

    This was a fantastic price here so I took a chance and ordered the dress. The pattern is cute with nice embroidery detail. It is a bit loose (I bought a medium) but I can use a belt with it if I wanted to. It isn't the most flattering, but it is comfortable.

    The style may be a bit dorky, but the fabric is sturdy cotton, the fit is loose, and the few wrinkles after washing ironed out easily (may not bother again). I haven't worn it yet but think it may need a T-shirt or tank underneath, or nothing at all.

    This jumper is made of quality cotton in a simple style and classic check. The fabric pattern is interesting and lovely. However the large (12-14) is closer to being sized for 18-20. I tried to take it in, but the fabric may end up in a sewing project or quilt instead. The fabric is very good, but I wish the sizing had been more accurate. (The price was too good to pass up, but also too low to pay additional for returns.)

    I liked the dress in the picture. When I got it, it was big. So, I'm planning to shrink it by throwing it into the wash and dryer. Overall, the dress was not a disappointment for the price. I could not find jumpers anywhere, so I'm pleased I found this one.

    Nicely made of natural materials, soft and easy to wear.
    Even better, the closeout price! What a deal!
    It's quick and easy and looks better than a tent or muu-muu!

    There's a reason this jumper was so darned cheap. The arm holes hung way down, exposing what was underneath. It was ridiculously long on my 5'6" frame. This is a dowdy dress. If you are into dowdy, buy it.

    I wouldn't say this fits like a tent as other reviewers, but it does run a size bigger than stated; the shape is just what this style is like... straight w/o any shaping to it. Should be a nice basic summertime casual jumper which is what I wanted it for. The checkered jumper has no embroidery...disappointed in that.

    Indeed, the dress seemed quite big on arrival. After a warm water washing, however, at least for my wide and very tall frame, it shrank down to size. Sadly, it also shrank quite a few inches in length (initially, at the low part of my calf , now, a few inches below the bottom of my knee.) After the wash, at least for me, the armholes also shrunk and now there's no need for a tank or cami underneath. It's not elegant, but a good at-home and in the 'hood dress for hot days.

    I will not be using this as a jumper, but rather as a cool, summer dress. The material is thick enough to wear without a slip and since it is cotton, it will breathe! I will use it as a house dress or for shopping trips. I purchased the blue and white checked version ( which incidentially DOES NOT have embroidery at the hem as the description states) and the denim blue version which does have embroidery along the bottom. I agree with other reviewers that this dress runs large. I am a size 14 and ordered a medium which fits fine. I'm sure these will wrinkle and I'll hang to dry since they are cotton and might shrink! The fact they are cotton is the main reason for purchasing them! I wanted cotton for it's breathability here in the humid, hot south!

    Got this for something to throw on around the house or run to the store in. There is very nice embroidery around the bottom that does not show in the picture and it washed well. Sizing is generous - I got the XL and it was even a little big but it is fine for what I wanted and the price was unbelievable.

  • Reviewed by Sally Homemaker from Arizona on Monday, March 25, 2013
    I bought this hoping it would be a basic cotton jumper that I could wear around the house in the summer and I can say that it will work out just fine. The fabric was a little rough, but it softened up once washed and dried. Also the sizing is a bit large, but again, once through the washer/dryer and it shrunk up some - still loose fitting but not terribly large and I am a very thin 5'7" tall woman.

    Great jumper, but the only thing is the light blue one pictured shows NO embroidery in the photo, but when it arrived it has red and yellow embroidery along the hem line in the front.

    The dress was very cheap but still not worthwhile. It's scratchy and stiff after washing. I don't think I will ever wear it but maybe one of my sisters will. I want soft, comfortable fabrics.

    I hate to iron. I washed this and dried in the dryer, taking it out early enough but it is very wrinkled. I am not happy with this purchase.

    Size S has a 40" bust. In no way would I describe the fit as "classic"—which Sierra Trading Post's sizing chart describes as semi-fitted—as the shape is rectangular or slightly triangular from top to bottom. The fabric is rather stiff and light- to medium-weight (further contradicting the alleged "classic fit," as it simply billows out), but I do not know if it would have softened after washing. Aside from the sizing, the jumpers (which I purchased in both denim and blue plaid) are cute and casual, and I did not notice any flaws such as loose stitching or ripped seams. Unfortunately, they were far too large with a cut that would have been difficult to alter (due to the pockets and the side buttons), so I returned them.

    reading previous reviews, i expected exactly what i got -- a very inexpensive jumper that would not feel good but could be an alternative for jeans when doing outdoor gardening -- in summer conditions it will offer the coolness of a dress but so inexpensive that mistreatment with dirt, water, etc will not be a problem

    I ordered two of these jumpers. One was well constructed, the other had white paint across the front. The dresses are cute but be prepared to send them back if flaws are obvious.
