I thought I was crazy buying a wool dress in September & subscribing to the challenge but I t really has bees a game changer. Morning routines are simplified. The dress holds its shape but it IS a swing dress so if you're not ready for all that roominess get another style. It is breathable easy wearing goes anywhere dress!
The Rowena is supremely comfortable and thoughtfully designed and constructed so as to be loose without looking like a potato sack. The back dart is key. The tapered sleeves can be pushed up when it’s hot—they stay put, even on my skinny forearms, and don’t lose their shape. The neckline is flattering. The material is smooth and fine and magically comfortable in all temperatures (I don’t normally wear a bra, but a cami, tank top, or bra do help under this dress if you’re wearing it in a professional setting without other layers). Knitted vests and down vests layer well over it for cold mornings. I am small up top and big in the arse area, so this style works beautifully for me. I’m on day 10 of the challenge and will be perfectly happy the next 90 days. This being fall gardening season, I’ve picked about a thousand burdock and forget-me-not burrs off the dress with no lingering damage. An apron helps keep it clean in the garden.
This dress is great! You really need to base size on accurate bust measurement (actually measure don’t just go by bra size!). The color is SPECTACULAR (I chose the forest green) and the pockets are deep enough and in the perfect spot. Really the perfect three (maybe even 4) season dress.
I mostly loved this dress, but the issues I had with it were signifcant enough for me to return it. I'm 5'5, 140 lbs, athletic build, and 36D bra. I ordered a size small because I wanted a more snug fit up top, considering the rest of the dress is so flowy. It fit perfectly everywhere except for the shoulders. Because of my build, my shoulders are more broad than other women's. I ordered a medium to see if that would solve the problem. It did, in fact, fit better in the shoulders, but then the sleeves were baggy and way too long, and the length hit lower on my knees, making me look stumpy. I would have had to have it majorly tailored to fit properly. On top of that, I felt the dress was light and airy (yay!) but also somewhat itchy. I did truly love the color; it was the ?forest night? I believe it's called? Whatever that dark green color is. GORGEOUS. I wish another style of dress in that color was available, because I would definitely give it a go. I love the idea of the Rowena in theory, but not in practice.
This dress is perfect: polished, comfortable, stylish, and easy. The fabric is soft, the drape is perfect, and the color (a dark olive green) is lovely. Now I have my eye on other colors too.
I find it funny that I’m being asked to review a product that I purchased that has never arrived. I contacted customer support and they promised an answer and refunded my 2-4 shipping, which was kind. However, I’m still waiting and haven’t gotten an answer. I needed this dress for a funeral which has now already happened, and also for an upcoming photo shoot.
The dress was really not flattering on me. I like the material and colors but it was way too big for me
I've been wearing my Rowena for 12 days now as part of the 100 Day Challenge. I really love the dress! The sleeves were itchy when I first tried it on, but that disappeared after washing. I love always having pockets and I love that they are lined. The wool fabric is thin, but good quality. It has withstood being tugged and jumped on by my three young kids (9, 7 & 3), and has even withstood the nibbling of a goat! Slight nick in the fabric, but no hole!
This dress will be great for cooler weather in fall and winter, with cardigans, tights and scarves. It's a bit warm for summer with the long sleeves, but I am able to push them up to 3/4 length, which helps.
This is a versatile and fun dress! With jeans or leggings, it feels like wearing a long top. Runs a little big, imo, and I believe the fabric stretches some, so if between sizes, I would order down.
I love this dress. It’s swingy and loose and lovely. Fabric is beautiful.
I am in love with this dress! I now own the Rowena in Marine Blue and Red, and am waiting for my third one shipping in Octoer. I am flat-chested due to bilateral mastectomy for breast cancer, and this silouhette is perfect for me. I wear a size smaller than I used to before the surgery. The dress fits nicely across the (flat) chest and then skims away beautifully from the body. It's a beautiful swing without being baggy or formless. VERY flattering to my body. I wore one on an hour walk in the heat of summer, and was astonishingly comfortable. The colors I have are rich and saturated. Can't say enough positive things!
