I never thought I would like the swing dress. At first, it seems pretty shapeless. After reading reviews and seeing all the pics of how women styled them, I decided to give it a go. I purchased the dusty blue and then one in plum. I'm not doing the 100 day challenge, but I'm so looking forward to wearing these frequently. Right now I have the dusty blue on with just a scarf, but I've belted them as well and they look great! Super comfortable, love the fabric. I don't have a full length mirror, so can't get a good pic, but will try to add one later.
I love my Dusty Blue Rowena dress! Easily my favorite item in the closet! I wear it for hiking, teaching, and grocery shopping! It’s the perfect casual dress or tunic!
I have just completed my 100 Day Challenge in the Forest Night Marl Rowena. I've seen comments online from people who aren't sure of the color based on the website photos. Think deep, army green. My personal coloring is Deep/Dark Autumn, and Forest Night is my "black." It goes with everything! To be honest, when I first tried on my Rowena, I didn’t like it. It was a sack. If I were in a store, it would have gone back on the rack. I had seen so many creative outfits online, so I started pulling sweaters, t-shirts, and belts from my closet. This sack transformed itself into the most versatile piece of clothing I own. I have been converted to the swing dress! It really is amazing that this dress can go from pajamas (yes, some people sleep in their dresses during the challenge) to elegant with just a few accessories. The Rowena is the perfect blank canvas for every mood, and it has held up amazingly well. Buy this dress in whatever color suits you; just buy. this. dress. :)
Besides my typical everyday activities, I have worn Rowena for gardening, kayaking, hiking and camping. I am nearing my 100 day milestone and am ready to report my experiences and observations and tell you why I love my 100 day dress. I sew many of my own garments and was interested in seeing how Rowena was constructed and how the garment and fabric held up over time. The fabric and the stitching have not shown signs of wear or tear. Although some
customers have reported dissapointment at how "thin" the fabric is, it is a tight knit, very fluid, and has a lovely hand, all signs of quality fabric. It did not stretch out of shape or pill over time. The stitching has held up, even in high stress areas such as armholes and sleeve hems. The fabric dries very quickly. At first I was disappointed in the deep armhole but recognize that for a fuller bust this is necessary. Over time I came to appreciate that I had some roominess under the arms... less sweat directly on the fabric. The swing style belted well when I wanted a trim fit and was roomy enough to accomodate the bulk of either winter leggings or traditional hiking pants underneath. My favorite moment in my dress came when I was walking through a state park campground and another camper called out from his picnic table "Hello! Is that a 100 day dress?" Two of his neighbors were participating in the challenge. Kudos, Wool&. Word is getting around.
I love this. Beautiful fabric, well constructed... I will be ordering another piece. I cannot do the 100 day challenge because I am a farm girl living in the deep south..high humidity and mid-90's every day..But I love it! Fits great and hits right above the knee.
My black L Rowena was worn for over 100 days and is still in rotation. It was altered and shortened to tunic length but is still too big for me. It remains good for cold weather layering.
With this order I sized down to medium. It was fine across bust and shoulders but still excessive for my frame. Now, if I were several inches taller it would be perfect.
I kept the Maggie - it works beautifully!
I cannot believe how much I enjoy wearing this dress. It is lightweight and very comfortable. I went hiking in it and then wore it to a nice dinner out. Cleans fast and goes with anything. I like wearing it with the sleeves rolled into themselves when it’s hotter out and the flexibility to have them long when it’s cold. Can’t wait to wear it all year round!
I love this dress and I have already had lots of compliments.I was afraid it would be itchy or hot for Southern summers, but it is soft and ....perfect. My daughter is joining me in the 100 day challenge.
I got the Rowena Swing Dress. What a perfect find. The fit is great and the fabric is just the right weight and feel. I've been able to dress it up or down with accessories. Wish I could wear it everywhere and everyday.
I bought the Rowena in Black and Forest Night, then came back for Teal. I love the weight of this fabric. I did the 100 day challenge in the Mara, and also have the Sierra. I love them all. It fits as expected and I ordered them in long. I plan to wear as much as possible.
