The French Terry fabric was perfect for my various late summer activities. It was easy completing the 100 day dress challenge during the warmer summer months here in WNY. As September approached I paired the dress with several longer sleeved colored shirts which made the dress truly feel like a brand new outfit each time I discovered a new combo. I tried wearing the dress with a belt, but I'm very high waisted with a modest apple shape and very long legs, so that never worked for me.
It fit right out of the box, but I did choose to rinse it in warmish/coolish water before wearing it for the first time and it smelled as I expected. In fact, the smell after less than 10 washes still has a bit of that funny fresh wool smell, but I'm used to it having worked in living history around historically accurate clothing for many years. As soon as the dress dries though, the smell goes away. Spot cleaning is a breeze too! I used natural enzyme laundry detergent from The Grove Collective and it worked great. It may have even extended each wear-between-cleaning time. Honestly, my only complaint was not having a light summer -un color to wear. I think this dress will be perfect for the coming fall months and I foresee wearing it often. I hung it by the waist to dry so the arm holes wouldn't stretch and once I dried it in the dryer for about 30 minutes on warm to try and shrink down the neck which had gotten stretched a bit by my excited cat. It never snagged or got a run since the fabric is a bit thick.
I completed my 100 day challenge last week and had SO many positive comments on it. Women love the pockets!! I work in customer service and so my outfits are often noticed by my co-workers and customers. My co-workers never noticed I'd been wearing the same dress (since I found fun ways to change up my look each day) until they saw my social media posts. My customers were complimentary of my airy, comfy look with POCKETS! I shared the 100 day dress challenge with a bunch of people, but always kept forgetting to take my pic in public because I got less conscious of what I was wearing and how I looked - partially due to COVID and also due to this super chillax, stress free dress. My laundry bill for sure went down (we only have a shared laundry room at my apt. complex).
The pockets have wide openings which can allow some items to fall out, but if you're aware of this, it's not an issue. I tend to wear large tops and medium bottoms, but the shapeless quality of this dress would probably flatter anyone if you're okay with being a bit formless. It is flattering when you wear it with the right accessories or pair it with fun leggings or a colorful shirt. However, for those who want to accentuate their curves, this probably isn't the dress for you. I don't have much curve due to my high waist, so it worked perfect for me. Included a pic from behind so you can see what I mean. ;op Can't wait to purchase my next @wool.and dress!
After living in the Rowena dress for 100 days I chose the Sierra tank dress as my reward dress. I'm ready to live in it for 100 days! It's such a nice weight, and looks great over a long sleeve shirt for spring and fall. Couldn't be happier!
I had always thought that wool items were super scratchy and warm... until I felt this dress. It's so soft, breathable, and comfortable and I can't wait to wear it many different way. I love that it's a transitional piece that I can see myself wearing every season.
I’m 12 days in and loving the dress so far. I did wash it yesterday and two loops of the French Terry inside actually snagged. But nothing drastic. I was able to gently work the fabric back. I do wish I had gotten one size smaller but it’s nice to be able to layer tees under. I live in the desert and am finding it cool to wear despite 110 degrees.
I started the challenge mid May and just completed it in my Sierra. I cannot day enough about the comfort and versatility of this dress. I live in NC and once the weather turns hot in May, it stays that way until we are well into September. That being said the Sierra kept me feeling cool and worked well for both casual, active and even dressy occasions. I wore it to camp in, exercise, ride bikes as well as worship lead at church.
It’s not even been a week since I completed the challenge and I find myself gravitating to the Sierra when it’s time to get dressed.
