I wore the Tencel Camellia for one hundred days straight, from the muggy mid-80 degree days of early fall in Virginia through midwinter and beyond. Camellia held up to all kinds of wear, kept my temperature well-regulated in heat and cold, and required very little washing.
After a hundred wears, there were still no stains and no pilling. I lost twenty pounds over the course of the challenge, though, so the fit has changed. I ordered a large Tencel Camellia in vintage blue heather and the fit is better for my current size.
I bought this in December, planning ahead and hoping for a summer version of Sierra. It's light and breathes, but it also makes a warm layering piece, so I've worn it several times already. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the on-seam pockets. Being pear shaped and tall, they hit at an unflattering point on me. I knew that might be an issue, so I'm waiting to see if they get better with wear. If not, I can just remove them - definitely not a deal breaker for me. Overall, I'm pleased with this purchase and expect to wear it often.
Came sooner than expected, which was great, because I was very excited to start the 100 days challenge. I've thought often about adopting a 'uniform' to cut down on daily decision-making and this is a very welcome opportunity. The dress, Camellia tencel, is totally comfortable, non-itchy, stain-resistant, and seems to be just fine after wearing it full-time for 7 days straight. The pockets are especially good - I can hardly feel the weight of my cellphone and other necessities.
The US alone is generating something in the neighborhood of 14 million TONS of textile waste each year. That figure has doubled in the last 20 years. This has to stop, and this challenge, these dresses, this company, are moving in the right direction. Kudos on your environmental awareness and actions!
I'm on day 9 of the 100 day challenge with this dress. It's flattering, a gorgeous muted color, and blends in with my wardrobe surprisingly well.
Camellia tank dress for winter in Wisconsin? This dress is so easy to layer. I have no problem what so ever finding ways to look my best in this dress. I have never felt uncomfortable in this dress.
First off, I love the fabric and the mission. I'm on day 13 of the 100-day challenge and it's been great! It doesn't smell at all, though I did wash it once to get a couple spots out. The spots came out no problem and I dried it overnight. I love not having to think about what I'm going to wear for the day and just skipping past all the decisions associated with that. I've been trying to simplify my life in as many areas as possible, and the dress and the challenge have been a great help to that! I'm a bit long waisted and have....curves that tend to shorten things up, so I might go for the longer version next time (they were out when I purchased mine, but I didn't want to wait), but the regular length has been totally fine. I just have to be a bit careful when sitting down and such to make sure I'm not flashing people. Someone said the armholes are a little smaller than another of the dresses (I haven't tried any others) and I was a little concerned because I have fairly large arms and have had issues with clothing being too tight there, but the camellia tencel tank dress has more than adequate space. It has actually stretched a touch and I wouldn't want the arm holes any bigger because it would show too much bra. As it is, a regular bra is covered fine as long as the straps stay in place. I can't quite wear a racerback without the straps showing, but that's not a big deal. It does show lines in the front with most of my bras. I think it's probably a combination of the thinner material and my bra fit. The material is nice and soft but sturdy and it lays nicely otherwise. I don't think I've noticed any issues with it showing my panty lines, but I've also been wearing undershorts or leggings with it to prevent my thighs rubbing. The color is lovely. :) It definitely goes best with other muted colors. I very much appreciate how modest it is while still looking nice and without feeling like it's choking me. I am trying to think of whether I've gotten hot or cold in it (I tend to run hot, hence the tank choice...), but I can't think of a time it hasn't been the perfect weight for cold or heat. It's the beginning of fall in Missouri, so we've had days in the high 80's and nights in the low 50's. I wear leggings and maybe a flannel over if it's cooler just to cover my extremities, but the dress has done wonderfully with the whole "temperature-regulating" aspect. I'm confident that it will be easy to layer over it as it gets colder and it will be comfortable next summer! All in all, I really like it and am glad I spent the money for this high quality, versatile piece.
I love this dress. It is loose fitting and i like accessorizing it. I am only on day four or five. I have worn it to work in campus and work at home for zoom. I’ve worn it to the local brewery And hanging around. The only stress I had was Thursday when I wanted to sew hem weights in so I didn’t have to worry about it blowing up in the air. Lol
I’m on Day 9 of wearing this dress, and I’ve been very pleased. I’ve gotten a couple of spots on it which I’ve immediately washed off. No problem. I live in Southeast GA and was concerned that “wool” may be too hot for our hot September weather, but it’s as cool as any thing I have!
I bought this dress to have something comfy and sturdy to wear while packing to move, and it's perfect. Nice and cool, but great for layering. I've worn it to work, church, and to lug bags of clothes to Goodwill.
Soft and comfortable material. The cut is sleek on its own or works really well as a layer under a long sleeved top and/or leggings and dark jeans. Blueberry jam, zucchini bread batter, and dirty rusty metal stains have all disappeared with plain water or water + dish soap! The material is lightweight enough to knot the skirt on the side if I need to walk through tall wet grass or step over fallen logs. The pockets fit my cell phone comfortably. Pulling the pockets inside out and tying them to the back adds a lovely dressy shirt option too! I've just started the 100 day challenge and am looking forward to wearing the Camellia under warmer tops as fall arrives and transitions to winter in the Far North!
