I just completed day 8 of my 100-Day Challenge with the Sofia, and I am absolutely in love! The fit is perfect for a tall, slender body type. The waistband provides a nice cinch for definition, the skirt has just a bit of flow, the length provides a modest coverage, and the size of the arm holes is just right. This is my first piece of wool clothing ever. I have very sensitive skin and have always found wool, even cashmere, to be itchy. But not this incredible Marino blend! It is soft, smooth, breathable, and incredibly quick drying. I truly could not be happier with this dress! (Well, maybe I could if it came in a lovely saturated color within my color palette, such as plum, marine blue, or pine.:) I am so excited to continue this challenge and, hopefully, continue buying and wearing Wool& dresses.
I chose this dress because of the cinched waist and skirt length. I chose a size medium and could possibly have chosen a size small but I was worried it would be too small. The fit is good, but I will be having it altered so that the waist is higher. The cobalt blue color is better in real life, really lovely color
I love the color. The lavender is super versatile: it looks good with any complexation; it works year-round; it can be accessorized with almost any color scheme. I have already worn mine with black, brown, navy, and sage green. The fabric is amazingly soft, but I would prefer something not quite so lightweight and clingy. I'm hoping there will be more choices in the ponte knit in the future.
I would also say it the sizing runs just a shade small. If you are between sizes, go a size up with this one. Also, it's a tad short-waisted. If you are long in the torso, I would say choose a different style. I chose this dress because I wanted something below-the-knee, and the skirt length is great.
I've washed it once, on gentle with Woolite, and hung it to dry. It came out fine, though it did need just a bit of touch-up ironing. With a darker color, you could probably get away with never ironing because the slight wrinkles wouldn't really be visible.

We've noted your feedback for more ponte knit styles in the future!
I'm on day 11 of the 30 day challenge, and so far, so good!
This dress is fabulous. The cut is great as is the waist and pockets. I did, however, have it altered with my seamstress. She lowered the neckline and I had her make a ballet back and short sleeves. I would love to see more colors, perhaps in warmer tones, like a saffron.
