I am on day 100 of the 100 day challenge!
The fit is good but not quite perfect on me. The top portion is kind of loose but the shoulder and arms are snug, I think I have slightly broad shoulders and a bit of flabby arms. However it's disappointing with the fit seeming to run on the smaller side in these two areas. Going up to a large I would think would be much too loose across the top (as I have a flatter chest) and the waist area would not be as form fitting.
With the belt on, when I sit it tends to ride up and I have this awkward poofed yet pointed section across my chest, I have to remember to pull down and adjust a lot, luckily with the WFH I didn't have to worry about any seeing it. I do like having the belt as it gives me more form and is more flattering.
Perhaps this design is just not suited for my figure, and one of the other freeform dresses would fit better (as many are also sleeveless)
The material is soft and comfy but slightly stiff, due to the shirt design.
The pockets at the side add a bit of thickness or weird shaping around my hips as they can get scrunched up inside and I have to put my hands in the pockets to make sure they are flat and opened against the front of the dress. Maybe somehow having the pockets sewed in place would be better?
If this design came in a short(er) sleeve version it would be great, as I found I pretty much had my sleeves rolled up all the time. One issue with that is the buttons on the sleeve often got caught on the belt loop.
The belt loop would stick out if I wore this with pants, as they are just above the waist line
I've spot cleaned it at times, and only fully washed it through the machine 3x. Talk about cutting down on laundry.
Look forward to getting a more products, already have my eyes set on the next dress!
This is my first wool& purchase. I haven't worn it in public yet- but I found the material to be rather nice- it's not too hot which is what I worried about. Sizing is generous- I ordered the medium and large, kept the medium. I returned the large and that process was easy. Will definitely be buying more products as they continue to release. Fingers crossed leggings come soon.
This dress was exactly how it looks and is described. I only had two small issues. First it attracts lint easily, but that’s an easy fix. Second, the arms were very tight on me, but I have large arms. The sleeves do not roll up too far to still be comfortable. The fabric however is very comfortable... I easily wore it for 100 days, in the middle of the summer heat. It’s breathable, temperature regulating, and easy to move around in. The design is perfect for everything! I wore it for house work, parties, shopping, being a mom!
I have somewhat broad shoulders and alas this shirt-dress didn't fit them well. The return was easy though.
