Happy Friday!!! So, here’s the Hackwith Design House “basic” dress I keep talking about in size medium. I love it! I wore it yesterday for running errands and lunch with a friend and was perfectly comfortable, even in 100+ degree heat. But, I have to say that honestly, if it wasn’t for reader Dianne’s email about how much she loves this dress, I might not have given it a chance because of the polyester. But I’m glad I did. (thanks Dianne!)
It sort of feels similar, but heavier, than James Perse’s brushed jersey fabrication, which I really like. And it drapes nicely. This dress, actually, is very similar in style to the JP dress that I wanted for one of the Bar Mitzvah events, so I’ll wear this one instead (to the Saturday evening party).
I’m absolutely going to get the sleeves shortened, at least to my elbows, because I think they’re overwhelming on me. The sleeves make the dress look too big right now, and I think shortening them will help balance it a bit better. And since it narrows a bit right below the hips, I couldn’t size down to a small; It’s already pretty snug when I sit down in it, I wouldn’t be able to in a small…ah…hips LOL.
And I’ve decided to send the long sleeve shirt back. It’s too big on me, for one thing, and for another, I just can’t get over the feel of the fabric. It’s also polyester, but feels very different from the dress; more cheap. I really loved the shape though, and she does make a couple other colors in 100% cotton, so I’d recommend trying one of those if you like the shape – and especially now with the 30% off code.
If you’re interested in trying any Hackwith Design House pieces, I recommend doing it now with their 30% off code, especially the swimsuit 🙂
Has anyone ordered anything? Or already own any Hackwith Design pieces? What do you think?
