I love the new “a bit longer” version of this dress. I also own the earlier shorter stripped version. This one is also easy to wear with leggings, tights and booties and , hopefully on its own with Sandals later in the year. Great fabric & construction- there are pockets!!
Excellent construction & fabric. Love it.
I love the concept of this dress and the values behind it. Customer service was super responsive when I had to return the original dress my husband purchased because of a small hole in the fabric and a line of minor discoloration across the chest. The dress is very flattering and versatile, and several people have commented positively on it. Interestingly, I tried wearing it to work for a full week—made it 4 of 5 days, and, with the exception of one colleague complimenting me on it, not one other person mentioned that they'd noticed. I work with a demographic that definitely would (1 generally notice, and (2 obtusely comment if they did, so success! Also, I'm actively moving during the day, and the heat in my work environment is variable, which can result in sweating. I didn't notice that the dress took on any odor throughout the week as other garments might.
I love, love, love my first Wool& Rowena. The fabric is more merino-y than this second edition and I just love its feel. The new length of this new version provides a nice variation, but it’s a little bit negated by the fabric.
Although I like the fit and the fabric is very soft, I am concerned because I am wearing it for the first time today and already experiencing pilling on the front which is very disappointing. Maybe the original Rowena is different but disappointed that this is pilling so quickly especially for the price.
I asked for -- and received -- this dress as a Christmas gift, and I'm happy to report I love it just as much as I thought I would! I agree with the other comments about the material being very stretchy and the pockets being a little low. I feel ridiculous when I try to carry my phone in my pocket because it makes the dress sag so much. However, I love the way the dress flows, and the weight is just right. I The length is perfect on me for work, hitting right at the knee. I'd feel a little under-dressed if it were shorter and dowdy if it were longer. I appreciate the plan to offer two lengths of the dress in the future. I'd love it if reviewers could share photos of how they style the dress. I'd like to see how everyone is wearing it and would be happy to share pics in return!
