Rated 2 out of 5 by elenna Great Fit, Uncomfortable Fabric
I loved the colour and cut of this dress, so I took a chance and ordered it. I also promptly sent it back.
This dress fits like a glove, in a good way; it hugs you in all the right places and has a good weight for a fall dress. Add a pair of knee-high boots and you could probably push it long past fall (especially if you don't live somewhere with harsh winters). I'm about 5'6", and the hemline hits just above the floor, so it doesn't need heels even though it would work well with them.
Unfortunately, the fabric is incredibly uncomfortable. Some wool products are remarkably wearable, but this is not one of them: unless you're willing to wear a full-body underlayer with the dress, you'll be subjected to a scratchy, prickly fabric. I am highly sensitive to tactile sensation, so it is possible that if you are accustomed to wool or don't mind the texture of it, this dress will work wonderfully for you. If you have sensitive skin prone to irritation, or if you simply hate rough textures, this is not the dress for you.
It's a shame: I wanted to love this dress, and it's gorgeous to wear, but for me it'd be a training exercise in stoicism.

I love a good sweater dress for fall. What sets this dress apart from other is the color. The raspberry blend is perfect for the season. There is also a nice button detail on the shoulders that isn't well featured in the product shots.
Unlike the other reviewer I found this dress to be soft and not itchy at all. It is a lighter weight knit dress. I will need to where tights and a tank underneath for the chillier fall days in the Northwest.
It's simple, cute and stylish and can easily be dressed up or down. I am 5'4 and could wear flat with this dress if I chose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SadieT Comfortable, flattering. Never want to take it off
This dress just arrived in the mail last night. I find the fabric very comfortable, it does have the feel of wool, but it is quite thin so I don't find it itchy.
I love the color of this dress, and the cut is great. I have some curves and I find that it is very flattering, and agree that it hugs just the right places. The stomach area is not too tight, which is always a must in a maxi for me.
I do find the fabric a bit thin, and could be see through in some lights so I will wear it with a little slip.
Overall very cute, simple dress for fall and winter. Easy to dress up or down and so comfortable!
