I decided I wanted something with sleeves and a heavier weight for shoulder seasons, and am shocked by how much I love Evelyn! I’m not sure why it took me so long to try it. The length is much better than most of my Wool& dresses (top of my knees and I’m almost 5’7”). The sleeves are great and the fabric is so comfortable. I’d love to see this dress in more colors.
I'm doing 30 days in Evelyn and loving it. I am already a big fan of Wool&'s French terry fabric and this dress might be my new favorite. It is SO comfortable. The shape is super flattering, and the fabric gently conforms without clinging. I would say the fit is true to size. I normally wear medium in Wool& and that's what I got. I was concerned it might be too snug at first but this fabric relaxes and stretches. The sleeve length is perfect for me and the sleeves are neither too snug nor too loose. The neckline is a little lower than I expected but it's not deep enough to be too revealing. Dresses up or down easily and I can layer over it as well. The Marionberry color is lovely. I took a chance because I don't often wear purple but I'm so glad I did. I'm a deep Autumn in coloring and the Marionberry works for me.
Super good looking dress which is comfortable and offers endless possibilities for dressing up or down. I'm a bit "curvy" up top, but this v neck isn't so low that I feel exposed. I also wear this dress with my clerical collar sometimes (I'm a priest) and it both looks great and has strong roomy pockets for my keys and cell phone. Length is perfect for a tall woman.
I did my 100 day challenge in a Margo. There is a lot that I love about the Margo, but I realized that I felt like I was showing a little too much leg at my height at work, even with leggings. I'll continue wearing it for other occasions, but not at work. The length of the Evelyn is perfect for me at 5'7". I feel work appropriate but not frumpy. I also like the shorter sleeves, as I find I push my sleeves up a lot anyway.
Great fit, lots of style, and a nice amount of give. Very flattering.
