This dress is my new favorite! I live in a warm climate but still find times when I wear the dress. It will be perfect in the winter. I love the feeling of the material which is soft and comfortable. I like the cut being loose and comfortable The pockets just add that much more to the comfort.
I love the feel of the fabric and the weight of the dress. I have long arms and broad shoulders so usually get an XL but the next time I will get a L as it is very loose and flowing.
I am a bit on the fence about this dress. It is well-made, soft and has a beautiful color (forest green) but it is not flattering at all. It makes me look twice my size. If I wear it with a belt or a shorter jacket it bunches around my hips and thighs and makes me look like I am trying to hide a problem zone (which I am not). It then also becomes so short that I would not wear to work, for example. I will keep but I expected more.
I really wanted the sleeveless version but it wasn’t available so I ordered the long sleeve version knowing the sleeves would be too long and not sure about the overall length. I’ll need to turn the sleeves under and tack in place (afraid to machine sew but a tailor could). The length is a tad longer than I’d like but ok. Just below my knees. Being petite has challenges shopping companies that don’t make petite sizes. However, I wanted to have a dress from Wool& because I loved their simple concepts. These difficult pandemic times have really helped me realize how little we really need and living more simply has great appeal. I’m waiting for cooler weather in Houston but I follow Anne Frost’s podcast I Thought I Knew How - she is doing the 100 day challenge and loved the dress.
I especially like the weight of the fabric, light- weight so think it will work in lots of weather. The fit is great and love the drape and swinginess.
My only suggestion is more colors, especially in the warm hues.
