Factory sleeveless shirt dress (SU15, C3920, $74.50) runs XXS – XXL. Color choices are blue and white.
Size S – blue – It fit tts for me. Notice the slight gaping just above my bust. For size reference, I’m 5’0″, 34DD. It felt like a long shirt on. Not in a bad way. I didn’t feel under dress or exposed, but I felt like I was in a long shirt. It would look nicer if it were about an inch or two shorter or if I just wore heels with it.
Apparently the white is see-thru, so you might not want to bother unless you a remedy of some sort. Do share, if you do!
A closer look and yay for pockets. The necklace is old J Crew Factory and the bracelet is old, retail J. Crew. There’s a similar one at Amazon, 30% off today only for Prime members (Jul 15) .

Factory tassel tunic dress (SU15, $79.50) runs regular XXS – XXL (C5661) and petite PXXS – PXL (C7434) Color choices are blue stripe and poppy bluff gauze. Hey! A fancy name. They use far fewer fancy color names on the Crewlet side. 100% cotton.
Size XS – blue stripe – I was sure this color would look like scrubs on me, but it didn’t. That doesn’t mean it didn’t feel like a hospital gown. It kinda did (left pic) and when cinched (right pic), it felt better.
Rope trim at the shoulder. I liked it. Stripes!
Size PM – poppy bluff gauze – The petites aren’t available in-store. I ordered it online. I was surprised at how big and how long it was. Most should be able to size down one.
The red stripe pattern did nothing for me. It wasn’t awful. That white tassel tie ruined the possibility of pairing it with brown sandals. Not that I’m keeping it. Already returned. As stated above, I like the rope trim at the shoulder.
My hair is growing! The texture changes every couple of weeks. I can’t keep up with it, but I’m not going to give up. I’m going to stay chemical free! No hair relaxers, that is. I’m only 7 mo into being chemical free. I was going to get long braids for my trip to NY, but I booked some work having auditioned with this look. So no braids for now. Maybe around Christmas time when offices are closed.
I think I’m on my tip-toes here, so this dress is long.
EXTRA40 gets an addtl 40% off select items.
I tried the Factory culotte pant (net $28 w/EXTRA40) and really like them. The only downside is an exposed zipper at the rear. That was totally uncalled for. I guess they can wear whatever they want at 770 Broadway. For some of the rest of us, wearing a zipper on the hiney might be questioned by HR. You know, a bit provocative.
Other than the zipper, I like the fabric and the cut. I think it’s wearable for me at 5’0″ and looked good in both flat sandals and heels. On me they look like a wide/fuller leg, cropped style just like it’s supposed to. Not sure how it will translate on taller heights. I can see it being a winner for many, so consider it if you’ve been wanting something in the culotte trend.
