    Beautiful, high quality dress

    This dress is a beautiful, high-quality item. The wool is lightweight and doesn't wrinkle easily. The dress is lined in the bodice and skirt, and the lining is anchored to the bodice nicely. There is a line of top-stitching around the neck, down the front seam, and around the waistline. For those who are acquainted with top-of-the-line wool garments, it looks like pick-stitching but it is machine done. The pink is bright but not neon, a true pink with a hint (just a hint)of purple. It will not date quickly, in my opinion. Now, for the downsides: I am petite, 5'2", and measurements 33-24-34. After many attempts with Boden petites I have come to the decision that they are just not petite enough for me. As others have stated, the quality is great but the bodices are too long and the dresses are too wide. All this was true of this size 2P dress. However, it was such a nice dress I decided to take it to my seamstress. She is going to raise the dress 1/2", which requires removing/reattaching the armholes and removing the side zipper. She is also going to take it in almost 2 inches at the back seam and sides, actually creating a seam through the skirt where it lacked one previously in order to put a zipper in the back. (Basically cut the dress up the back.)(Note: the side zipper was a problem, and made it hard to get over my head even before she pinned it.)She will have to take out the pick-stiching around the collar. The front darts will be raised as well. Finally, she will hem the sleeves by about an inch. Unfortunately the side bust darts were cut, so they could not be removed and raised. Note to Boden: please, please don't cut the darts when you are designing dresses! It makes it so difficult for those of us who are trying to make your product fit unusual sizes! That seems like an outrageous amount of work to make a dress fit, but it is very unusual to find such a nice dress, with sleeves, in a beautiful fabric. I am hopeful it will be lovely! Boden, please consider making one more size on the small end of your petite line. I think you will find there is demand for it! We petite girls love our clothes and they are hard to find.

      Wool dresses can sometimes be so heavy, but not this flattering Skater. I travel a lot, and this dress will nicely fit into my suitcase for work, after work, and even for special occasions. Well done, Boden!

      I chose Magenta US10L/ 5'8" and am totally thrilled. Great value and a great addition to my collection of "little black dresses" !
      Think Jackie O style.
      The dress is elegant and comfortable. The fabric is a beautiful wool with great attention to detail as in invisible side sipper, over lay stitching usually found in couture collections.
      I feel elegantly feminine wearing this.
      Good job JB.

        I absolutely love my wool skater dress. The first thing I noticed when I opened the package was the quality of the fabric. Most of the clothing I purchase in the US at a similar price point is far below the standard set by my new Boden dress. I also am happy with the stitching and it fits me so well. This is the most flattering dress I have worn in ages. The cut is feminine and stylish and a bit modest, making it a perfect choice for the office. After this first purchase from Boden, I am totally enchanted with this brand and am planning on only shopping here for my fall and winter wardrobe.
