Helen Merino Wool Sweater Dress 4 5 2 2
Practical but lacking some oomph I love wool sweater dresses in the winter because my office is freezing. Overall, I'm pleased with this simple dress but it lacks some oomph. I'd rate it a 3.5 stars rather than a 4. The fit: I'm 5'7", 142 lb, 35-29-40, with very broad shoulders and long arms. The medium is a nice fit through the shoulders and down through the bust. I wish the 3/4 sleeves (which fall about 5" above my wrist bone) were about an inch or so longer. There is adequate ease in the hips (not baggy, not form-fitting). The waist is loose - the dress has a very straight cut. And the hem falls about an inch below the bottom of my knee The good: The purple is a lovely colour. The dress seems well-made and I like the simple lines, including the fairly narrow hem, which echoes the narrow knit-in band up the front of the dress. The slight scoop neck shows off collarbones an jewelry but isn't gape-y at all. The dress is thick enough for winter but not too heavy, so I'll get three seasons' wear out of it. The quibbles: Although this is merino (which I usually find to be soft and fine), this wool is coarser and a bit itchy. I can wear it but someone who is super-sensitive to wool (but who can normally wear merino) might have trouble with it. The dress is a bit boxy - I wish there was a bit of taper in the waist to make it a little more shapely. Finally, I hate the scratchy, hard-to-remove tag at the back of the neck. October 10, 2014
Beautiful dress Color and quality are very nice. Two things - I am a solid 12 and the medium is too small. I had to exchange for a large (14-16) and it does not fall below the knee on me. It is at the top of the knee. October 8, 2014
