|Featherweight cotton cardigan in colorblock|
The colorblock effect did not disappoint me IRL. I love navy and this is a great way to wear neon pink, since the navy tones it down and separates it from being next to your skin.
|Fit TTS to slightly small|
|Navy tones down the neon|
|With vintage bateau (in olive?)|
|Very thin and see through|
I was also curious about Altuzarra for J.Crew collection and I have ordered both Sabrina and Patricia dresses. Sabrina dress was in stock and I just received it yesterday.

When I asked for measurements I decided to order size 8 since the chest measurements was listed at only 36.5", waist 30.5", hips 42" and skirt length 24.75".
|It definitely creates cleavage|
The hip measurement is proportionally large but I did not find it sticking out. Nevertheless, I think this dress would look better on those who are pear shaped and small busted.
The straps were slightly too long on me. The length was perfect, fell right to the knee ( I am 5'6).

I think you could remove the bow detail if you think it is too cutesy since it seems to have gingham fabric underneath. I think the pencil silhouette and the fitted style prevents it from being too "Dorothy" or too young. hoesIt you remove the bow that will also give you an option of wearing it with say brown or black belt to offset the Wizard of Oz effect (also, don't try wearing red Glitteratti shoes with it, lol).
I would wear this dress if it fitted me correctly. It does seem well made and the fabric is very nice to touch,
Is it worth the price? Probably not, I would think it will go on sale because it will mot fit most people correctly. So if you are lucky to have the right proportions and you are patient you can probably score it for less. Of course, it will also depend how many of those dresses they made.
That's all folks!
I will try to post a review of Altuzarra for J.Crew Patricia dress tomorrow.
What do you think?
