Some of this feedback is completely my fault - I should have taken the time to order multiple sizes to try on and back what didn't work but I looked at the sizes and the fact that the dresses seemed to have swing and give and figured it would be fine. I love the feel of the dress and the comfort, but the pockets hit right at the largest part of my hips and the length isn't super flattering. I always order long because of my fat knees but I probably should have tried multiple options on first before I settled on one. Maybe even multiple styles. I was anxious to get my dress and start the challenge and didn't spend enough time considering the right dress for me. When I choose my next dress I will do a lot more trying on first. Its just hard when you have to purchase and then return through the mail. But I would buy another because it is very comfortable.
I ordered a couple styles and sizes before I found the perfect combo with Willow long-large. Love the v-neck and 3/4 sleeves. It's easy to layer and the sleeves fit snug for layering, but not too snug.
Rowena long large was too big and too swingy for me. Willow medium was tight across chest and shoulders. Camellia tencel in large was a perfect fit and beautiful fabric feel, but not a great color nor warm enough heading into Fall. Willow in large was mostly right. I purchased the charcoal heather and dyed it my perfect color. Now I have a dress I feel great wearing for the challenge and beyond.
I heard about the 100-day challenge and curiosity got the best of me. I'm so glad it did! One week into the challenge, and so far I've had a ton of fun getting creative with the dress and pieces I already have, and I love simplifying my choices in the morning. The light weight is great and I love the color, and I don't find the wool itchy at all. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of the challenge goes!
The Willow in long length is exactly what I'd hoped for - versatile, pretty, and above all, comfortable! I love the cut of the dress, with its 3/4 length sleeves and V neck. The washed navy is actually prettier in person than in the photo online. I worried a little about it possibly being too long but it hits right at my knees. The weight is comfortable and easily layered for cooler weather. I hope I can get this in another color sometime next year.
I considered doing the 100 day challenge but decided just this morning that I wouldn't, in part because I have worked to make my wardrobe limited and intentional and I want to get back to a few items before the season changes. But I feel sure I'm going to wear this dress a frequently.
It's 85 degrees here, and the dress is extremely comfortable. When I wore it the first day I thought 'Oh! this is great, I want one in every color...' But that's not the point, is it? I'm now on day 4 of the 100 day challenge and loving the dress.
So nice on, to touch, feel and wear !
I ordered the Willow in black, size Small. The fit and fabric were nice but I felt the dress was too short to be worn as a dress, so I retuned the regular length and ordered the long version. My only complaint about the dress is that the pockets are high and bulky and make belting the dress a problem. There is just too much fabric at the waist. Even so I was pleased enough with the Willow that I ordered the Rowena in charcoal, staying with the shorter length this time to wear with leggings. I can definitely recommend Wool&.
The dress is thinner than it looks in the pictures but the drape is lovely. I’ve worn mine 6-7 times without washing and it is awesome. It doesn’t harbor smells and food and smears just dust right off!
Neckline: I was worried the neckline would look stretched out, but it is really flattering. I’m a large breasted mama and not only does it consistently maintains it’s shape, but it never slips low - it’s a perfect modest cut.
Season: This is a good dress for shoulder seasons. Being from MN, it will prob need to be layered come winter. If you’re in moderate climes, this will likely last you all winter.
Material: I’m amazed at how thin and soft the material is. Wool has always made me insanely itchy - but not this!!
Body temperature: I tend to “run hot” and frequently have hot flashes, but I never feel uncomfortable in this. When I get too warm, I usually peel off my leggings and I’m good as new (which tells me I prob should get some wool leggings!)
Length and fit: I originally got the Long XL, based on others’ recommendations to size down. I found that not to be the case. The long XL fit more snug and looked ok, though there was a strange buckling at the hips where the pockets are. And when I sat, the dress slid up in a way that would have definitely resulted in a peep show. I ordered the Long XXL, and it’s perfect - the length is great even when sitting. It doesn’t buckle much around the pockets, and it’s still fitting enough at the top to not look dumpy.
Given that I'm retired and most days never leave my house and yard, I'm not sure wearing this dress for 100 days straight is really feasible. On the other hand, I have been pondering it. The dress is that comfortable and dresses up with all sorts of accessories.
