our clara shirt dress comes with a few advantages.

I really enjoy wearing this dress. It does run on the large side in both sleeve length and dress width. But its soft material was a dream, and it was very warm. I only needed a sweater over it despite the 35 degree F night. I would definitely purchase again only get a smaller size.
I got this right before traveling overseas, for a somewhat impromptu trip to Rome, Italy along with the Rowena Dress. The Rowena was my go-to for the flights, and any days that involved needing yoga-pants like comfort. This was what I wore on museum days, to nice restaurants, and anywhere else I wanted to look nice but also feel comfortable. It worked! I also wore it to a few professional continuing education events. My favorite thing - how WARM it is! I find it hard to find professional, form fitting, flattering, WARM clothing especially since all the places I'm listing are frequently kept at a much colder temperature than I prefer. The sleeves were a *touch* short, but that's normal for me, and were perfect rolled up to just above the elbows. It was nice to not need a sweater or big scarf in a lecture hall. :) I haven't washed it yet, but I expect it to perform just as well post-washing. PS - I got the black in a Small first, and found the color didn't show off the details of the dress, and the black along with the structure made it feel very "uniform" like to me. Swapping for a more fitted size and a color to show off the pockets really won me over!
I love this dress. I have a slightly long torso and am very much an apple shape and I find this dress extremely flattering. I love the long sleeves. The neckline is super flattering, and the length is good. The fabric is lightweight but feels substantial and the dress feels extremely well made. I love a dress with pockets and these ones are placed perfectly to avoid adding bulk. The teal color is absolutely beautiful. This is a great dress to wear to work.
First the teal color is stunning, the fabric is beautiful and the sleeves are actually long enough (never happens)! Unfortunately, the style might be better suited for an hourglass shape or pear shape and not an apple. When belted, the fabric bunches up awkwardly around my hip area. Too bad, it is a gorgeous piece that is timeless.
I thought the fabric was a good weight and soft, and the dress is clearly well-constructed and high-quality, but it just didn't fit me. I found this dress very tight at the hips, even though it fit fine everywhere else. Maybe it would work on someone with narrower hips than me!
