Just got my marionberry Maggie in 3X and I am in love! I wear a 2X in Willow and Cora, an XL or XXL in Brooklyn, and an XXL long in Rowena and Camellia. But I have never had a Maggie fit before! Too short in 2X and arms too tight in XXL long. This dress is perfect. (Wool&, you need to update the choices so I can say I bought a 3X!)
I was really excited about this dress based on other reviews, and there is a lot to like about it. I was prepared for the thinner fabric, and I actually like the nylon content along with the wool. I like the length of the dress, and the quality of the construction. The scoop neck turned out to be a bit deeper on me than it appeared in the photos, which I don't love, but it's definitely something I can work with. I'm also still getting used to the swing dress style - it's been a while since I've owned something without structure like this.
All that said, this dress will definitely be going into regular rotation in my wardrobe. It's perfect for wearing to events when I'm working as a photographer, and it will be a great asset to my professional wardrobe as well.
Pay careful attention to the sizing guide so you get the best size for you, and I think you'll be pleased with this dress too!
This dress is thinner and more light-weight than I expected for a wool dress but it's comfortable so far. I've worn it to work a couple of times (as a college professor) and it dresses up nicely with some jewelry. I'm going to pack it for an overseas trip where I'll be doing a lot outdoors in a European city and I'm hoping that it will be good for that excursion. I would prefer a slightly heavier fabric and I'm a bit worried that it will be clingy. The size estimates seem accurate. I'm usually at the upper end of size 12. The large is comfortably loose on me but I don't think I could have gotten away with a medium. The long is quite long on me--significantly below the knee (I'm 5-5').
I love how comfortable the dress is. I don't like the static in the skirt part. I spent all yesterday unsticking the skirt to my legs and bottom. I don't know how to prevent this.
I'm so happy with my small black Maggie! Lovely weight and feel. Great length.
