Rated 5 out of 5 by amaryllis outstanding dress
Well done LLBean! I just got this dress in both colors--at the current sale price, this is really an excellent value. The wool fabric is excellent, the construction is excellent, the fit is super flattering. And the dress is super versatile. We've had some cool weather here this summer, so a light wool sleeveless dress is perfect for work on these chilly mornings. I anticipate wearing both of these dresses, with cardigan and tights, all autumn too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OscarAlphaKilo Versatile dress!
I bought both colors and so far I'm very impressed. It's a wool jersey and the wrinkles came out with a light ironing. I haven't washed them yet. I bought both colors. I'm normally a size 6 with LLBean but the brown was only available in a four and it's perfect (maybe even a little large). The neckline is a scoop that shows your collarbone, and I'm planning to wear it over shirts and turtlenecks for cooler weather and alone when it's warm. It's versatile to dress up or down with a denim jacket and flats or alone with heels and jewellery. I think a navy color would be a great addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MelroseMAGirl Gorgeous dress and fabric
Almost did not purchase dress due to other feedback about fabric being similar to felt. I saw the dress in the store and was hooked. It drapes beautifully and is stunning and very high quality. Wool fabric is a light knit and super comfy and soft.
I highly recommend this dress. Very feminine and a bargain as it's on sale.

This dress was just what I was expecting. It fit me perfect. It was not to heavy. It held it's shape throughout the evening. I received many compliments.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ProspectPat Fabulous Design-Poor Quality
I purchased this dress. I love the cut and the look.
Unfortunately it's just not made very well. The bodice has a short lining around the neckline. No matter what you do the neckline sags and the lining shows.
I ended up returning the item to the main store in Freeport. They have a few other dresses with the same neckline and the same problem--neckline sags and the lining shows.
LL Bean should improve the quality because the cut, color and design is great but I just could not keep it, especially for the amount of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SavvyinSeattle Beautiful well-priced dress
The fabric and fit of this dress is lovely. I like to wear it also as a jumper with a lightweight blouse or shell underneath. The pleats are soft so the skirt drapes well. Fit is true to size and the length is perfect. I think you would have to look hard to find a better priced wool dress. Please consider offering it again in more colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jaxfacts Wool or Felt?
I like to shop LLBean and am generally very happy with my purchases. This dress is the rare exception. It was not made of a quality wool and in fact as my review title suggests it was more like felt than wool, it came out of the box terribly wrinkled, the pleats were non-existent. The fit was fine but given its deficits and price I returned it.

Anticipated arrival and wassurprised the material was lighter and appeared more felt than wool. It will need a layer added in chilly weather. Even with the lighter material and high waist, it's cute, so I'm keeping it. Just wished it had alternative colors available. Maybe later in the season with cap sleeves?

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanIsTheNumberOne This is a Beautiful dress for work or pleasure
I love this dress. It is the perfect dress to wear to work with an added jacket, and then after business hours, it becomes a great casual evening dress as well. Like all LLBean products, it is made to last. This dress fits true to size and lays perfectly across the chest, waist and hips. I've been buying LLBean for over 20 years, and have never been disappointed.
