about our wool
I love Kalle. She is a substantial fabric which just feels good to wear. The pockets are perfectly placed. The length is great on me at 5'6". I wear a Medium in Ro, Evelyn, and Margo, but I'm pear shaped, so sized up to a large so the hips would fit, as I did in Chloe. Had to have the area under the arms taken in by a professional, as I don't sew. Now the large Kalle is perfect. The washed navy is a lovely neutral. Wore 4 times on a recent cruise without the need to wash. Great for travel.
Can't say enough good things about this dress. First, I bought it in plum which is my very favorite wool& color. I love the fit, it's much more flattering than I feared, especially if paired with a fitted jacket. It's also longer than I feared, which is great because I'm 5'10" and I don't feel good in short dresses. This is just 2" or so above my knees. People seem to think that Kalle is only a very dressy dress, which she certainly is, but she can be a tunic, dressed down and made more casual. You owe it to yourself to try.
Pockets support phones! Oversized top.
Too big under arm
I followed the sizing guidance and ordered a Large as I have a 36G, 42 inch bust notwithstanding I’m a size 6-8 in pants and skirts. As with everything on this site, it’s huge and the sizing guidance is wrong. The vanity sizing is insane. Absent my broad shoulders, I would be an XS in just about everything on this site. But instead I’m a S that’s baggie in a lot of places. For this dress, it really doesn’t matter that I ordered the wrong size as they’re out of the smaller sizes until 2024. This is another constant frustration with Wool&. I am definitely a fan, and this dress in particular seems like it would be perfect for my needs (polished professional attire), but I shouldn’t have to pay $160 for a dress and then $$ for alterations on top because I’m 1) now too late to re-order for the event I need it for; 2) the size I need is out of stock for 6 months anyway. Wool& aggressively markets. Now they need to do better at assessing the demand that marketing will create. It’s not rocket science- some basic demand modeling will do better. And also, they need to make their vanity sizing more inline with their own sizing guidance.
