I’m happy to report that these polkadot cropped pants I found last weekend are a keeper (see post here). There were no small sizes for me to try on so I took the risk and had one shipped to me. Worst case, I could shrink them since they are cotton. Ann Taylor had the Chelsea cropped dot pantsthat I missed out on but I prefer the white on navy polkadots better for Spring/Summer.
Fit: The waist is a tad loose on me but I think once I wash and dry it (see outfit below), it should be good. The thighs are a slightly baggy in the back (see above butt shot). I’m wearing these on my low waist and the crotch area fits me nicely. I was afraid that the length would hit me at a weird spot like most cropped pants do but these are truly a cropped length on me (5′ tall). I was expecting the butt to be baggy like my AT Factory polkadot shorts but these fit much better. It’s either that or my butt is getting bigger 🙂
Quality: The quality is nice and pretty much what I normally expect from Ann Taylor factory. The only complaint I have is that there are no belt loops. I like the option of being able to wear a belt – it also helps alleviate the small waist gap in the back when belted.

Verdict: Keeping! Warning – after washing and drying, the pants fit much better in the waist/butt/legs but shrunk 1″ in length. I’m hoping they aren’t too short now.
If you don’t live near an Ann Taylor factory and are located in the U.S – you can call and have the item shipped to you. The shipping fee is waived if you have an AT credit card or you pay $7.95.
