Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Mischa Gorgeous, vibrant colors
This sweater is exactly like the photo. The colors are just as vibrant and the fit is precisely how it is on the model. I am 5'3" and 103 pounds and ordered my regular XS. It fits TTS. I paired it with the cami the model is wearing and it looks adorable. Having said that, this sweater is very itchy! The wool is definitely present and I don't know how well I can tolerate that. The fit is meant for a cami because a long-sleeved shirt (which would help with the itchiness) would bulk up under the fitted sleeves. Gorgeous sweater....but may not be wearable. If you don't mind wool, definitely grab this one!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby AnthroWayOfLife Colors may vary
I'm 5'2'', 100 lbs, and got a small, rather than an XS (which is my usual size) based on the previous review stating that shirts under this sweater might bunch up at the sleeves. I'm glad I did size up, because it's true that the sleeves are quite fitted (my arms are quite thin too). Since it's a loose weave, there's some give in the material. But with a small, I can now definitely layer this sweater. My colors are slightly different from the picture (more red, green and mustard). Also, I washed this sweater in front loading machine (in garment bag, delicate cycle), and dried in in the dryer. Came out impeccable. I also paired the sweater with the white cami sported by the model, great match, but I'm not sure what other color combos would work with this sweater. I think a solid color top works best here.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby ItsFromAnthro I could not wait to get this sweater!
It looked adorable for the first few hours I wore it... unfortunately later in the day my Aunt asked me if I wore the sweater a lot, when I asked "why?" she pointed out that my left elbow was completely popping out of the sweater, which had become unraveled. I took the sweater off and found another huge unraveled hole underneath my right arm. I understand the nature of hand knitted items, and am hoping I just got a lemon, but for the money, I decided not to replace it after I returned it for fear it might happen again.
