J Crew’s apron dress in eyelet (44488, $158) is now $119.99 online vs $99.99 in-store on 6/8. It runs 00-14 and the color choices are navy & white. I havne’t seen white in-store, so there is a chance that color is online only.
Size 6 – I like the eyelet. It feels sturdy, like the capri eyelet pants. The apron style cut straight across the upper chest was really cute. Sure, it looks modest, but it didn’t feel stodgy or uptight.
I would need the top altered to get the dress to fit properly. If I had an occasion to wear the dress, I wouldn’t mind paying to have it fixed.
It cuts in a little bit, like an apron. You could layer under the dress with a lightweight blouse like the Indian voile by J Crew. Something lightweight. Or just watch the type of bra you wear with it.
The low back is nice. If the dress were taken up, it would look better in that area. It’s a little scrunched.
