Women's Denim Jumper
Not the same as before
I have ordered this item several times before and, though there have been differences over the years, have always been satisfied with it. This time, however, is different. The size is much smaller (I ordered a 3X and the sizing is barely a 2X), the armholes are cutting, and the length is a good five inches shorter (used to be mid-calf but is now barely below the knee), and that is all before expected shrinkage due to washing. In addition, the fabric has at least three flaws (very small holes) which became very obvious once the garment was washed for the first time. On the plus side, though, the pockets are slightly larger than they had been, making them much more practical. I kept the jumper because I needed something to wear to school, but am unfortunately not at all pleased with it and am not sure whether I will try again or not.

I NEED a new Jumper
After reading the other reviews -- especially of those who have a long-term relationship not only with your store -- but also with this particular denim jumper -- I felt that I should add my "two cents" and a plea. I spend a lot of time in a very warm climate (I am a Missionary) -- so the lightweight material suits me fine, but I am in and out of a pick-up truck all the time -- and within days the back seam pulls and becomes a "white line" which certainly is not helpful. So, please ask your provider to make an adjustment -- if possible. (I suggest a "false seam" in the back -- so when it does pull -- it doesn't pull the seam apart). Thanks for caring about what we think!

I have always purchased your denim jumpers in the past...this new one I do NOT like. I thought they were the same as the others in the past and was so disappointed. The neck lines are too high, straps too wide and it is NOT A-line, but slightly fitted. I have worn the others out because I lived in them. Such nice fabric, loose and allows for a nice tan when outside in Arizona, where I live. I saw another letter similar to mine on this site and I completely agree with her. I had three of the others and completely wore them out. How I wish you would bring back the other ones from a couple years ago. Thank you.

The material was not what I expected. It could have had more stretch / give to it. I was thinking of getting the pull on skirt, but after feeling the material in the jumper, I've decided against buying the skirt. Oh and by the way, I see where my personal information lists me as male which I am, but this item was bought for my wife.

Denim Jumper - hard to find
I need to wear loose fitting clothing for the duration of my chemo treatment and this jumper is just perfect. Wish they were in different colors too.

The Quality of the Jumper has gone down over the years
I have bought this jumper over the last 17 years. I wear it every day for my habit as I am a Diocesan Hermit. Over these years the jumper has gone from being made in the USA to being made in
China. The fabric weight has gotten lighter and lighter. The cut of the jumper which used to be roomy, has been cut down considerably so that it is close fitting, and the sizing has changed too. It has gotten to the point that it is no longer the jumper that I liked and loved. I now have mine made using the old jumper as a pattern in order to get the weight and roominess I enjoyed in the past. I would buy them again if VCS went back to the old formula that worked for so many.

Please return to the prior versions
I have been buying Vermont Country Store denim jumpers for many, many years. I wear the jumpers 1-3 times each week. The current version isn't as comfortable as the older A-line version. The the material is much too lightweight, and it is too short. I still have old ones from 15 or more years ago. They have given me excellent service. Every year I either purchased or was given as gifts 1-2 jumpers. Since your current product isn't as good as it has been in the past, I have been looking for alternative sources and have spoken to a seamstress about making them for me. That is sad. For so many years I depended upon you to supply what had been an exceptionally good product.
