I really, really, really want to love wool& dresses. First I tried the Rowena long, based on the many good reviews. I used the size charts and got a small, which was too tight in the shoulders but otherwise appeared to be the correct fit. Next I tried the Fiona, knowing fit and flare dresses work well on me. I also went up to a medium to accommodate my shoulders. It fits better in the shoulders, but is rather loose in the waist - the elastic is very loose. It is otherwise comfortable and I will wear it with something over it to make up for the fact that the dress is too large in that area.
I love my Rowena dress (100 day challenge complete!) and wanted to try another wool& dress style so I ordered a Fiona, thinking I would love it as much as my Rowena. I really wanted to like it, but the fit just wasn't right for my body. I have a short torso and small breasts and the style just didn't do anything for me. I also noticed that having anything in the pockets (even a lip balm) showed in the Fiona, whereas I can put practically my whole house in my Ro pockets and it disappears. Trying again with a different style, just ordered a Camellia tank dress for the summer. Fingers crossed!
Hi Nicole, thank you for your review! We are happy to hear you love your Rowena, and agree that the Camellia may be a great option for you. Please reach out to the help desk if you have any questions about the exchange/return process.
I like the elastic waist. I think it helps with layering. I have a Rowena and have layered sweaters or shirts over it. I find that it can buch up at times around the waist and pucker in odd places. With the Fiona, the skirt drapes perfectly under a shirt tied at the waist or with a belt. I really like the versatility of this dress. I purchased it in black. You can really dress it up or down. I really am glad I purchased this dress.
I don’t think I have the proportions to pull off this dress. It was a shame because it would make a great travel dress!
