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.
More royal thancobalt. Dress was too long for me (a first!) and vents were well below knees. Tailor was able to take care of most of it (armholes a bit big, but I can live with it). My first non-swing dress, so quite a change. The color is gorgeous. I wish it were available in other styles.
This dress is beyond amazing, I even bought it in black a week later. It fits really comfortably, I did order a medium so the waist would fall at my natural waist as opposed to a bit higher. My one complaint, which is personal preference, is that I’m not a fan of the crew neck and I wanted it with short sleeves. Luckily, I have a great seamstress that opened up the neckline and made sleeves out of a Canyon Red tee shirt (the dye lots did vary, but not terribly ). I would love to see this same style dress made with sleeves of some sort in the future.
I selected three dress styles to try. I wanted to like this one the best but unfortunately it was not as comfortable or flattering as the one I chose (Kalle Ponte). I’m in between size S and XS. I went with the XS because I’m short waisted and also tend prefer a snugger fit. It was just a bit too tight on the waist but great in every other aspect. If I sized up to a S I think overall it would be too big. The Sophia midi was lightweight but not see through, skirt had a really nice drape, and of course… POCKETS! The color is a beautiful blue although I would not describe it as cobalt.
You ever try in a dress and it just fit like a glove? That’s how Sofia is. The neckline is perfect, not too high (like Sierra) and very similar to Summer Midi’s rounded neckline, which I much preferred. The waist is gathered at just the right place for my waist and the fabric hangs beautifully below the elastic. (be sure you order your waist size for this one. I have a 30 waist and the medium was perfect!) The added length is a DREAM. It’s just a pinch longer than my Summer and a little heavier weight fabric. It hangs sooooooo nice. 😍
There’s just one tiny tinsey issue. It is black 😬
The last black dress I wore was 20 years ago 🤯 I’ve never had a desire to wear much black. And my coloring of Cool Summer attests to the fact that I should steer from black and white 😩
However. I love this dress. And I have a good deal of tops and accessories in my colors that I’m hoping to offset some of the strikeness of it. Wool&, more colors please?
