      The shift is a very well made, classic design. The colors were just too bland for my taste.

        So I have a slight obsession with wool dresses (and skirts and blazers). Particularly Boden's wool dresses (and skirts and blazers). This gorgeous shift is perfect. I ordered my usual 6L and it fits like I expected. My plan is to wear this into fall and winter with tights and a nice cardigan.

          Beautiful and well made, this classic shift has enough fun in the pattern to flex from work wear to a night out. It is sooo comfortable and the summer weight wool is perfect to carry you from spring to fall.

          I enjoy finding stylish dresses for fall and winter wear, especially when you can mix it up by changing the blouse underneath...and this dress fits that bill perfectly. The only thing that concerns me is that it fits a little snug. Size 8 is typically a little loose on me. I plan to still wear it, but will hope I don't gain any weight in the next year! :) One suggestion for improvement...take it in a little at the waist so it works with curves better.

            Such a deal for the fabulous sale price! I am normally quite sensitive to itchy fabrics, and this dress doesn't bother me. Timeless design. Super cute use of tweed.

            I bought this to wear to work. I wore it once, and even though it is fully lined, it was so itchy I couldn't wait to get home so I could take it off. Perhaps if I wore a slip it wouldn't be so bad, or if I washed it, it would soften up, but I haven't worn it again since. The fabric reminds me of burlap. Pretty, but very uncomfortable.

              This dress is incredibly versatile. The fabric is beautiful and the dress is very well made. It is easy to accesorize to give it an entirely different feel --oh did I mention how comfortable it is!

              Challenging...

                  This garment has a tricky shape. The neck is such that I found it could not be layered over *any* button down shirts or even thin sweaters... The neckline of the shift hit any garment layered below awkwardly. I might have kept it if it was fabulous on it's own, but the background color is an odd almost skin tone that washes me out. Also, it is a bit too roomy up top and too straight a cut. The construction and fabric are top notch though. If you are tall and have narrow hips, and your skin tone works with the background, maybe it will work for you.

                    This is a super-cute dress with great style. If I had to improve it, I would prefer more of an a-line cut, but it is lovely as is. Thanks Boden :)
