J Crew’s scattered dot shift dress (35551, $168) runs from 00 – ?. The color is called black dover dot (BDD).
Size 4 – chest = 37″, waist = 35 3/8″, hip 38″
Size 6 – chest = 38″, waist = 36 3/8″, hip 39″
Size 6 – I tried the dress about a month ago, around the time it was first released. It felt a little bit big along the sides at the waist. The fabric on this is a heavier weight. It has a twill or crosshatch linen feel to it. I liked it upon touch. I like the pockets, too, even though they are the type that will add weight to the hips. Check it out on Shop With M and on The Judicious Shopaholic.
Fine with a cardi, but you can pick something more exciting than black. A medium, warm brown would be a safe, easy departure to get started.
Standing on tip toes, to give an idea of how much shorter dress gets.
Size 4 – I was curious to try the size 4. It fit better along the sides, but I’m not convinced it’s the best size. Maybe if I lost another five-r. The pic directly above is size 6. I think I would choose that size.

The dots will work fine with the right statement necklace. I didn’t find it to be too much. Plus it gives a place for the eyes to land, instead of just floating in a sea of dots.
