This just came in the mail today, and having tried it on, I'm a big fan! It fits very well and I love that there are pockets. Sizing: I usually get a size medium in Merrell jackets/coats, but tried a small with this dress since I was worried about it being too long, and I won't be trying to wear another shirt underneath it. This worked well for me--I'm 5'4" and the small hits just above my knees, and also fits well everywhere else. Regarding the fabric: I was a little worried about the wool being itchy, but it's actually very soft and stretchy. To me it feels like a very sturdy cotton. It is a little thinner than I expected from the wool content, which to me is actually a plus, as I plan on wearing it with tights and don't want to be too warm when I'm inside--I can always add another layer before venturing out into the snow.
