Jut received my Ro In marine blue and I’m delighted to say it’s perfect for me. It have enough black dresses but had nothing in navy. This will go with just about everything I own. I opted for a M long though the size chart says I should wear L. My Sierra is M is a good fit so I guessed correctly that Rowena M would be also. It’s summer here in Michigan but I know it will give me three seasons of wear for many occasions. I feel I may be writing this review too soon as I haven’t really worn to realize the potential. This is my second Wool&. I love my olive Sierra in M regular also.
I wanted to love it but there was just something super weird about the arms. The alignment of the armscye (I think that’s what it’s called) was off, and left the arms just fitting really oddly. I returned it.
The rest of the fit was fine.
Hi Ketzirah, thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear the arms on your Rowena did not fit as well as expected. Please send an email to the help desk with any photos or additional information you have for your order, so we can look into this with you further.

The fabric isn't what I expected it is itchy and light weight almost like something I would look for in a pajama.
I have tried it on it fits well.
I am not sure if this dress would be comfortable to wear all day. Let allow 100 days!
I checked all the other measurements, but never focused on the length. I struggled to wear this for a few days, especially with a belt, because she just kept creeping up on me, especially while I walked my dogs. Eventually I broke down and reordered in the Long length and sold her on Poshmark. After trying numerous other dresses, almost all in an XS (except Tulip, I got her in a Small), I'm fairly certain I could have ordered Ro in an XS, if she was available in an XS Long (although I think she is now, she was not when I originally ordered). If you're stuck on colors, I will say, the Charcoal Heather is a fabulous neutral choice, goes with everything, black, brown, navy and any colors you can think of.
...that said, the cut fits some people better than others. For people (like me) with an hour glass figure, the dress covers your best feature (a slim waist). Some people belt them, but this is not a look that worked on me. Overall, it is not a bad fit, but not the most flattering either. Just the slightest taper at the waist would make all the difference. I'm thinking about doing this myself, but am a little stymied by the pockets. Not sure I should have to do this on a dress that is so expensive.
I like the feel of the fabric. I have a wool allergy, so I was thrilled to find that it doesn't itch. It's on par with a jersey knit cotton, so don't expect thick and warm.
