Ellie is without doubt the most elegant and formal style available in EU market. The fit is close around arms, chest and back, yet is slightly A shaped around the tummy area, therefore quite forgiving. Thanks to the style it's not for everyday use but mostly "evening wear".
I love it! I was concerned it might be a bit clingier than the swing dresses and show up some unfortunate bumps but it’s very flattering and a good length too!
I should have bought this dress months ago - I’m not sure it would have been as good a challenge dress as my Maggie was, but it’s already one of my favourites and I’ve only had it hours!
The fit is good and the style of this dress is very flattering. The fabric is a lot thinner than I expected from merinowool and I'm not sure it's warm enough for winter.
I'm no stranger to Wool& dresses, as I happily completed the 100 day dress challenge in a Sierra. But it was the first time I tried one of the more fitted styles, and... wow!! I was really impressed with how nicely tailored and flattering it is. I was concerned that the waist would hit too high (as I am tall), but it works nicely. The top is quite low cut but I'm OK with wearing a layer underneath unless it's a party occasion. My usual size is between S and M, but it's a firm S (or S-long) in the Wool& dresses, and Ellie was no exception. The 3/4 sleeves seem slightly less tight (possibly marginally longer) than on a same-size Willow, and ride up less. Overall, Ellie may well turn out to be my favourite Wool& dress, and I would love it in different colors.
