I bought this assuming it would be too long and would have to go back. Based on the other reviews, I thought it would be dragging on the ground for me at 5', and I assumed I would need to have it altered. However, it is solidly ankle length. I may still hem it, but I can wear it as is! The material has a wonderful thickness that feels like it will work for both winter and summer. I was comparing it to some other, more flowy, wool& styles that weren't working for me (too much material on my small frame I think), and I just love this dress. Cozy, elegant, casual with more formal potential...
Because I’m short I was hoping this would need a hem like all my maxi dresses do- then I planned to use the fabric from the bottom to add sleeves as I don’t wear sleeveless clothes. However it’s a perfect long maxi on my 5’1” self and doesn’t need a hem at all. It is a great under layer for my Ellie 100 Day Dress Challenge. The neckline isn’t too low- even for my busty self. I will have to layer it or find a way to add sleeves once my challenge is over.
Really like they Audrey. Softest fabric, it feels like a warm hug. I had been eying the dress for a while, wondering if I would wear a Maxi dress often enough. Turns out I find the Maxi length very comfortable and could wear it for any occasion. I have worn her several times already (walking dog, at home, the office and even on a long travel day with international flights) and found her very practical. I might have been able to size down, but still chose to go with L as I preferred have room around the hips and thinking it would be easier to have slight adjustment done at the bust if needed. Will evaluate that in spring, at the moment as I'll be wearing layers and a slip underneath in winter I think it fits well. I love the length and colour.
This dress is great! I probably could have sized down but I like things a little loose also they were out of M in the color I wanted. So soft and a beautiful color. Hits me right at the ankle. 5'5" about 160lbs and 38B I got a large. I love this dress and plan on wearing it year round.
If you have the Livia tank the top fits similar 😉
Not to bulky not too clingy. At my height the leg slit ends a little bit below the knee. Very comfortable though the fabric feels a tad rougher than the regular wool blend jersey. Doesn't get an odor despite being less wool.in the blend. Thick and loose enough not to show all the lumps. With a mix of leggings and tights it's at least 3 season wear or maybe call it 4 season for the cooler summer nights.
Do wish it came in solid black no Heather. It's more of a charcoal.
