Rated 1 out of 5 by fashionhandbagbeautygal Disappointed
I was so excited when I saw this online because it is so rare to find a plus petite. First, it is not a petite. It may be shorter but it certainly isn't shorter through the bodice, the waist hits too low, the bust hits too low. I'm tired of manufacturers taking a couple of inches off the length of the garment and calling it a petite. Secondly, this coat is made very cheaply, the belt looks like a kid in home-ec made it. Sending both colors back sadly.
Rated 1 out of 5 by jules88 Heavy Bathrobe
If you're looking for a heavy bathrobe, this is it. If you're looking for a dress coat, keep looking. This item was the worst disconnect between what I saw on TV and what I pulled out of the package than anything I've ever ordered from QVC. I usually love GILI, but not this time. The scale of this coat is overwhelming for a petite frame. The portrait collar is too much. The fabric looks like a cheap plush bathrobe and creates lumps and bump because it doesn't hang on the body like a coat should. It made me look 30 pounds heavier.
Rated 2 out of 5 by ssh8p I wanted to like it
I got this when it was offered at the lower price. I thought that for the price it would be a great buy. Even with petite sizing I think it overwhelms the frame. I think it is the huge collar for the most part but as another reviewer noted, it does have a strange bulge in the back above the belt. It is the pleat. It doesnt lay down and instead balloons off the back like a hump. LOL. I got the black and I tried to look at the videos with Jacqui to see how the black looked but it was too dark to tell any of the details and none of the models turned around so that you could see the back. With the dark color, it was impossible to see how the collar really looked unless you looked at the camel colored one on Jane. I knew that it was too risky to buy. but for the price I decided to give it a try. Entirely too much coat unless you are 5'10. Its going back.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bobbistitch Quality lacking
I purchased this thinking it would be good dress coat and reasonable a whole it's well made but the why they push GILI I thought it would have shoulder pads and all good wool coats do look at DB. Also this is made with tall slim girls in mind.

I ordered the coat in the petite (am 5'1") there is just too much to this coat for a small frame. Not sure about the fabric - going back!
