Soft, beautiful, love the options

I'd been looking everywhere for a wool dress that was even modest, and then I found this beauty with all the options I needed for my upcoming baby. Love it, I wear it almost every day. There is a slight stretch of the neck downward when I hold my heavy 18 month child as in most slightly stretchy shirts and dresses. I got dark charcoal lightweight fabric and it's going to be perfect for a light flow-y summer. It also goes very well with my blanket scarf and sweater, I can wear it with pretty much everything in my closet. I went with the default length as a skinny 5'8" and it hits perfectly just below the knee. Ordered with my Christmas money, got it just in time for my birthday, right on the timeline given and a nice surprise. I'm definitely sharing this beautiful shop with my friends.

Love it

I followed the size chart and everything is perfect. I'm a tall girl so being able to customize length on anything is a huge plus for me. I'm so glad I ordered while purple was an option because it is so pretty. The fabric has just the right amoung of structure/and stretch. I got the maternity/nursing friendly options and love the versatility.

So happy

I am so happy that I found homespunbyruth! I was looking for a merino wool nursing friendly dress for a long time and couldn’t find one anywhere that I loved. I couldn’t believe it and was so pleased to find that you could completely customize a merino wool dress here that I immediately ordered 3 dresses, 2 short sleeve and 1 long sleeve, all knee length nursing and maternity friendly dresses. They are beautifully made and very comfortable. I love that I will be able to wear them at anytime, pregnant/nursing or in between kids. So happy with my dresses that I’ve been telling friends and family to check out homespunbyruth!
