I mentioned I would try and get a Boden Weekly Review Roundup done before Thursday night in this blog post, but because of some sewing related and school related deadlines, I can only offer up two of my own reviews. So here they are, the Swing Tunic Dress and the Boucle Jacket. Hopefully I get all the other work done soon and can get back on the BWRR train. :-)
The 6 long is perfect. It hits right at four inches above my knee, but with tights on looks more than modest enough, provided I am not headed to church or teaching. With leggings I can absolutely wear these to church or to teach.
The pockets are fun, and are big enough to hold a phone.
I love this color, and am befuddled as to why this shade isn't selling. It is a beautiful mid-blue/green color with a very subdued rectangular block print.
BTW, this tunic can be worn under a full skirt, like the Mollie Jacquard skirt, provided you purchase the skirt in a length longer than the hem of this tunic. I purchased the 6 L, and it hits right above my knee, and fully covers the bottom half of the tunic.
Swing Tunic. Selling well in all shades, barring this one. That said, the larger sizes are all gone in all colors.
The pockets are a bit small and a bit flimsy, but provided you don't use them for anything other than a key/id or your hands, they should be fine.
funnel neck coatigan, which is made from the same fabric, so if that shape works better, you can get the luscious boucle fabric there instead.
This is like the world's most casual Chanel jacket. ;-)
This boucle is softer than the fabric I own probably because of the alpaca content. Most of us who own it say it is soft, but I know that some of you would find it itchy, too. Heck, I knew a lady who couldn't wear cashmere because it was too itchy, so soft does not equal wearability, necessarily.
Boucle Jacket. This one is nearly sold out in the small sizes in the lighter color, but the navy shade is still fully available.
Okay, I hope these two reviews help some of you out there!
You all have a great day!
