Margo is absolutely perfect. Even the pockets, which can ruin the drape of a dress if not situated correctly.
I am in between Large and Medium, so ordered Medium because I didn't want Margo to hang or be baggy. Fit like a glove and after a wash, a couple days wear, she relaxed to my shape.
Fantastic as little black dress, appropriate for a funeral without looking too gloomy, and easy to layer with something colourful for casual wear. Not as good for tying up or with a t-shirt ring like the lightweight dresses. It's a heavy weight that hugs and encases your body. So soft and comfy. Great for Scottish weather, but will probably fall out of rotation in the summer and might not even go on holiday in a hot weather destination. Not her fault though, and she's still perfect.
For me, the Margo is the perfect little black dress - it's timeless, classy, easy to dress up or down, well fitted and of a really good quality. The thicker fabric makes the Margo less flowing then the Rowena and other swing dresses, but that's fine since the cut itself is figure-hugging. I'm sure that it will be a keeper for years.
I also own swing dresses (Rowena and Willow), which I ordered in XL long to obtain a little extra length here and there. The fall very loosely, but I like it that way. The Margo, though, is a more fitted dress. The XL turned out to be far to roomy, the L fits great. Since I'm rather tall with long legs, it's quite short (ending way above my knees), but with opaque tights (and maybe a fancy duster on top) it's fine for me. Nevertheless, a long version would be very appreciated.
After trying many different Wool& dresses, I finally found one that's perfect for me. The fabric is thicker than Rowena, Brooklyn, Fiona, etc. but super soft and has stretch. It's a great base layer or dress in its own right. The pockets are very practical. I love it and am very grateful to the customer service team for their patience and advice.
I love this style. It's smart enough for work, especially with the moto jacket, and tough enough for family life and dogs. I've got 3. Perfect for those who don't find the swing style dresses flattering. Although I often pop my Sierra over it for extra warmth! The material of Margo is terry and very good quality.
I'm a big fan of Margo, and of the slimmer fit of the dress. I have several wool& dresses, and this is the first shift dress that actually looks good on me.
The vintage blue is a fabulous colour which suits my skin and hair colours extremely well. The fabric is lush and thick and keeps me warm during these winter days. It will be my absolute go-to for the winter months even with a series of Rowena's, a Willow and a couple of Maggie's sitting in the closet.
Just a couple of notes on the side: The bracelet length sleeves are not my favourites, I would much prefer full-length sleeves for comfort and warmth, and for not having the feeling that the sleeves are too short on me. And the pockets which are the love of so many hits me on my widest point and are absolutely not flattering on my body.
For both issues, though, there is a solution, so they don't take away my enthusiasm for this dress at all.
Therefore, keep them coming, wool& - I'd get myself another one if you pull out different colours (or restock the redwood) :-)
I tried two other wool& dresses tjat did not really convince me, but the Margo is just perfect for me. Very good quality, classic fit and look, warm, soft and comfortable. The pockets are great!
Can be worn for practically every occasion, casual, dressed, sporty...For me the dress could be just a little bit longer.
It's my first dress from Wool& and I'm delighted with it. The dress is perfect for winter.. it seemed lightweight and the texture is smooth, but it is nice and warm. Having pets I was worried about hairs but they don't stick. It's well fitting and I'm glad I sized up (I was between sizes on the chart) Easy to wear and dress up or look casual. I'd definitely recommend!
This really is the perfect dress ! The fabric is soft and so comfortable. It is also very flattering. I was worried about the shape being less flowy than my swing dresses so I sized up, and it works very well. I love it so much I bought it in Marionberry as well as the cinnamon stripes! I never want to wear anything else until the weather gets warmer.
I wanted to like this dress very much because it's the only warmer one available with long sleeves. Unfortunately, there was extra fabric bagging in the back and the shoulders were big, whereas sizing down would probably have meant tightness in the hips. Also, because of personal preference, I decided black is not the color I'd like this dress in and the others currently available in my size did not seem to fill a gap in my wardrobe, so I just returned it. I'm still rather sad it didn't fit the way I'd hoped.
With my length the dress is more of a tunica or a very long sweater and the arms are more like 7/8th or 3/4th. Which is perfect for me, I knew that when I ordered, since I wanted something to wear with leggings and thick tights in colder weather. And she is perfect for that. She hugs the hips and the belly slightly in my normal size but not enough to make me feel uncomfortable. And she is so soft and the slightly thicker material is so comfortable! I have the Aegaen Teal colour which is very blue, almost turquoise and splendid for me.
