I have two more of your dresses but this is the dress of my dreams. I got the lavender one and the color is so beautiful. Fit is amazing for me. (Hourglass shape) It even fits if you have a bit of a wider back. It also has pockets which is a necessity when I buy clothes. Please make more fitted dresses!
I just got my Fiona in blue yesterday and started my 100 Day Challenge today! So far I like it! The arms didn't have any positive ease right out of the packaging but they're not uncomfortable. The material is a little thinner than I was expecting but it is very soft. The waist hits at my natural waist.

This dress is PERFECT for me! I'm not a small girl, and the fit is just great, and really looks pulled together with a stretchy waist belt (I do the same with the two Brooklyns I own from wool& unless I'm just kicking around the house). The color is GORGEOUS (and it's the color I usually dye my hair! I need to redo it so I match, lol). My measurements are 44-32-46.
It's a thinner fabric than my Brooklyns, which is nice for me with the 3/4 sleeves since I live in Hawaii and it's warm year round. I appreciate the thinner fabric because I like being able to have my shoulders and most of my arms covered so I don't have to wear as much sunblock. But because the fabric is thinner, if you're a No Bra person like me, it might bother you since it's a bit more obvious. My personal belief is if it's acceptable for a man's nipples to be obvious, it's okay if mine are, too, but everyone has a different comfort level. :)
It felt a bit itchy straight out of the package (my skin is pretty sensitive), so I did a quick wash and soak with some hair conditioner in the tub (wool is hair, so it's totally fine to use), then sent it through the spin cycle and hung it to dry, and it feels much softer now. Another upside to it being thinner is that it only took about half an hour to dry completely on the line outside!
And pockets. I love pockets. I wouldn't carry much in the pockets for long distances because it's a knitted garment so it'd noticably stretch, but for from the car to the restaurant or short walks, it'd be fine to hold a wallet and a cell on either side.
Also, they did a printed tag on the garment itself this time! So you don't have to stress about meticulously cutting out the tag.
I'm 5'5" tall, 140 lbs, and 38-33-40. 36D. I'm a medium in Wool& Rowena and Sierra dresses.
Pros. The colors are more subdued. To my eyes, the lavender is actually grey, and the slate blue looks more like navy. The pockets are good, although I wouldn't keep my phone or wallet in them.
Cons. The sleeves are way too tight. I don't have fat arms. The skirt is too short for me. It hits me right through the middle of my knee. The fabric is very light. A heavier fabric might hang better.
I think I look better in the shift and swing styles.
