Rowena is my new go-to dress when I have to go out in public and have not bothered to get dressed. It is unwrinkled, swingy and polished on demand. Not to mention comfortable. If you could wear a favorite sweatshirt and call it an outfit, why would you chose anything else?
I am very pear shaped(44/38/49), so it was nice to find something that is tighter on my bust with plenty of hip room. I have thick arms (16) and thus occasionally have to adjust the neckline. I got the teal which was less green than the website photos, so that was disappointing. I have sensitive skin and this felt very comfortable compared to most wool, but it is still wool. I wish that the fabric was a bit thicker because you can see bra lines etc. I hope that they make a thicker winter version in the future. Also it wrinkles easily, so you really must lay flat to dry. I wore it 5 times before I needed to wash it.
I don't think anyone else has mentioned this, but I love that the circumference of the hem of the LONG version is about 4 or 5 inches SMALLER than the circumference of the hem of the standard version. This means the long version isn't as tent like as the standard version, but is more like a shift. I think it's much more flattering. Plus, it covers my knees.
After ordering several different colors and sizes, I've decided that I actually look better in the M Long. I'm over 60 and covering my knees looks better. The dusty blue is a lovely faded denim color. I am looking forward to getting the forest night in the future, as I look great in olive tones, rather than black.
I just completed my 100 day challenge wearing my Rowena dress. It was absolutely amazing. I started in March when it was still cold in Northern Wisconsin. It is warm around the house and layers well with sweaters/wraps. We are now into 80-90 degrees and I am still cool wearing the dress outside. It is fairly stain resistant and usually just a little water gets rid of most stains and otherwise a quick wash will do it. I live in a dryer climate and the dress dries within a few short hours. I would go hiking in my dress fairly often and it would do well. The sleeves are a big plus and keep mosquito's away. Although I can't travel anywhere right now this would be a great travel dress. I highly recommend. As a result of my 100 day challenge I minimized my wardrobe to my wool& dresses and coordinating pieces.
