Rated 3 out of 5 by msqueen Order Up A Size
I ordered both the navy and off white in size 14 and 16 on a lunch break special. I have ordered items from the GILI line before, and knew that the line runs at least two sizes small, depending upon the item. Looking at this jacket, and all of the princess seams gave me the impression that it ran smaller than usual. So, when I received my order, I tried the 16 on first, and it fit. I want to be able to wear either a light weight sweater during cooler months, or a long sleeve blouse without the jacket pulling open in the front. For comparison, I usually wear a size 12 in ladies' blouses, 38c, 5'7". The fabric and design of the jacket is really nice. The navy color is more of a muted steel blue. The cream color was nice, but my coloring (fair skinned African-American) went looked better with the navy. The faux leather is really nice. However, if you are busty in the chest, this jacket may not work for you. It is very form fitting, and although it has give in the fabric, it's best to order 1 to 2 sizes up from your normal size. I give it three stars due to the very small sizing.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 4sarah A bit snug
Received this blazer recently in the navy color. Very pretty but a bit snug in the shoulders and arms which is so unusual for me. Always have to order xxs but would have sent it back but was afraid the sleeves would be too long. I will have to wear with a very light weight top under.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bkattgrl A Fit, At Last!
I have been trying for years to get a fitted XXS jacket/coat/blazer from any number of QVC designers with no luck and could buy an entire coat for all the return shipping charges I have paid. I am 5'2"/100 lbs. and every XXS I ordered fits like a small/medium; way too roomy and boxy and not attractive on my frame at all. I think most designers are trying to appeal to the broadest demographic they can and that apparently doesn't include women my size.This one is perfect. A nice fit in the shoulders and sleeves and the blue one is very denim-friendly. I am seriously thinking of going back for the cream-colored one before it's gone. Kudos to G.I.L.I.! Wish they would repeat this design in more colors.

This is the best line of clothing on qvc in my opinion, very stylish but classic designs with a little bit extra. When I saw this jacket on Jill I thought it looked so chic. The size 12 fit perfectly the size 14 was too large. The ivory color is beautiful I am glad I did not listen to the review that said it was yellow because it is not. I returned the blue did not like the color at all and was not as elegant as the ivory one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tracyf421 I feel so classy in this jacket!
I purchased the jacket in the twilight color. It is a soft shade of blue, with a hint of purple. It will go with anything. I'm not usually a jacket person, but am always drawn to women who wear them so effortlessly. This blazer is outstanding! The quality is great, from the lining to the cut, to the weight of the fabric. Jill was right - the faux leather totally looks real. I found the sizing to be fairly true to size, with running slightly on the smaller, if at all. In jackets and button downs, I typically need a 12 or 14. I purchased the 12 and it fits beautifully.
*P.S. Don't forget to clip the threads holding the vent closed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by piscesgal71 Beautiful Jacket
I noticed this jacket on Jill Martin on the GILI product page and really wanted to try it. I ordered it in Vanilla size 2 (I fluctuate between size 0 & 2 in GILI; if the garment is lined, I go with a 2, if unlined I can go with a 0). It is a tailored jacket, but I didn't find it to be too tight, and there is sufficient length in sleeves. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this jacket, it is a substantial weight and the faux leather color blends perfectly with the fabric. I found the color to be appropriately described as vanilla (however, depending on the light source, it can come across as having a slight yellow undertone). There were wrinkles in the fabric which I removed with a handheld steamer. I've included some photos showing the jacket over a plain tank and jeans...I simply tried it on over whatever I had on that day. I am very pleased with this jacket, the color, the cut, the quality...it is superb :-)
Rated 4 out of 5 by bargaingirl24 nice jacket!
I just got this jacket. It is heavy so not for summer wear but it is very well made. I got the cream and the the fake leather is a good creamy white--not yellow at all. It matches up with the fabric well. I have full arms and a smallish bust (36B) for my size. So I ordered up from my normal 14 to a 16. It is a perfect fit. If you have a big chest this probably won't work for you. I am wearing it today to work with a T shirt, flare jeans and heels. It looks really good. I could also wear with a pencil skirt and a dressier blouse. I don't know if I would machine wash though . . . 4 stars because it arrived quite wrinkled and is a bit expensive but I am keeping because it is hard to find jackets that fit well given my build
I am thinking about getting the blue because I like it so much.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppingGirlinFL Classy, gorgeoous blazer
I got my regular size in this GORGEOUS blazer and it fits like a dream. I love the structure and everything about it screams expensive. The only thing I am disappointed about (and it's not the blazer itself) is that I got it to go with A267201 (the ponte skirt with lace on the bottom) because they are both described as deep twilight and in every other line at the Q, when a color is described, it matches but not with GILI apparently. The blue skirt is so dark and this blazer a much brighter blue so I can't wear it as a suit which I really wanted to do. As separates, the 2 pieces are INCREDIBLE. This blazer looks like I spent 3 or 4 times the price - I just wish the deep twilight would have matched the deep twilight skirt.
