J.Crew Gingham – Boy’s vs. Women’s Petite

…hand the way J.Crew did. So back I went and re-ordered some J.Crew women’s petite gingham shirts during the fall sale, and threw some J.Crew boy’s gingham into the mix, just to see. Here’s the breakdown: J.Crew Petite Perfect Shirt in Gingham, 00P: Not the most slim or shapely of shirts, but surprisingly, one of the best fits I found. My main gripes with it are the long length on 4’11” me, the shoulder, and the bust seam. After a few commenters po…

New Businesses Throwing Their Hats into the Petite Fashion Ring

…ex pants does not a clothing line make! And can you really call something “petite” if it’s just nothing but spandex? Ick!
