I absolutely love this jacket dress, and I got a lot of compliments when I wore it. The fit was just right and the material was top quality. I will purchase more items from this site in the future.
I am a first time purchaser of Ray Darten clothing. Before placing my order I called Ray Darten customer service and spoke to a most helpful representative of the staff. She offered great tidbits of information to help me make my size choice. After placing my order, I received my garment two days later here on the east coast. I chose the Nina Jacket Dress. I needed something different to wear in celebrating my heritage at church this month. The garment arrived nicely tied in a pretty pale blue ribbon with a lovely hand written thank you card enclosed from the Ray Darten Staff. What a nice gesture! I was excited to receive my garment but was disappointed to see that the Nina Jacket Dress was a navy blue based fabric and not the dominant burgundy as shown in the picture as displayed. HOWEVER, the navy has grown on me. The pattern is fabulous. I am 5'8 and carry some weight so I took a chance with the 1X. I was skeptical that the proportions of the dress would fit properly but IT DID and I am overjoyed. The lining is finished off nicely as well. The shoulders and sleeves fit the way they should and the waist fit was spot on. The length of the skirt hit just at below the knee the way I wanted. This was a great purchase and I will be purchasing from Ray Darten again.
Do you ever make any of your jackets/dresses in Xsmall? I'm a size 0 and towering at 4'11". I love your designs, but I want to buy clothing that fits me.
All cotton and fully lined dress/jacket in unique and beautiful pattern. Cut to at waist and flare out of hips creating an attractive silhouette. Arm holes are generous enough not to pinch when moving. True statement piece for an affordable price.
I absolutely love this dress. Quality fabric. True to size fit. Awesome in every way!!!
