Button-Back Sweater-Dress in Donegal Grey

Button-Back Sweater-Dress in Donegal Grey is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Sweater Dress I absolutely love this dress! I stupidly went a size down on this dress because I was fearful that it would be oversized, however I could have gotten my normal size (small) and it probably would have fit even better. I bought a x-small and it is fitted and very cute! I love the buttons on the back. It is a wool dress so it is very warm, but if you have sensitive skin you may find it to be itchy. The dress does start to loose shape throughout the day, but it's not super noticeable. For reference I am 5'8 and 125 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Dress Dress is very cute for winter. Warm and a great grey tweedish color. I did have to buy a Small. The XS was a little too tight. I typically wear a 2 or 4 in dresses, blouses, and shirts in J Crew and Madewell. I definitely recommend sizing up. I weigh 118 and am 5'6", slim build. Looks great with tights and short boots and a soft short paisley blush scarf I bought at Madewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from basic, but cute Wasn't sure if this dress would be flattering, but I tried it on in the store and was very happy with the fit. The material is nice too. Some of the sweaters this season seem cheap, but this dress feels substantial. Cute and cozy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect winter dress! Loved this dress!!! I'm pregnant and hoping I can wear it the rest of winter. Not itchy and very comfortable. With tights and booties you have your go to winter outfit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cute with a Twist Cozy dress and casual, the buttons add a nice touch in the back and give it a little something extra. Cute dress for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozu winter piece I'm in love with this dress! At first when I put it on the wool did feel a tad scratchy but after about 5 minutes of wearing it I barely noticed. It's a great fit and can be dressed up with tights and heels or dressed down for a more casual look. It's a great piece for winter!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it works! Here is my big surprise with this dress- the back does not actually open via the buttons. This is a plus- you do not risk any gaping or having a button open up without you realizing. Funny, no one else mentioned this. Anyway, the dress fits well, I did not find it particularly itchy. It will look quite sharp with a dramatic scarf and it is nice and cozy for Minnesota.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adorable but itchy Adorable dress, but make sure you have a long sleeve undershirt!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice dress but itchy I thought it may be too basic but it looks stylish with a statement neck and booties - then you get the pop in the back from buttons. The fit was just right - loose but fitted just a little in the right spots. TTS for Madewel. Loved the look more than I expected. But I will be sending this back because it's too itchy for me. I would have to wear long sleeves underneath and it's not cold enough where I live for that. I wish it was cotton and not wool!
