Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Poulain So disappointed at quality.
I bought this cardi online in yellow a few months back. It was GORGEOUS in person when it arrived, loved it. I wore it once to go to dinner. Came home and the next morning very sadly noticed 3 snags opening into holes, two on arms and one on front. Was gutted. It wasn't pulled around nor was I rough with it. Lovely looking but material is very easy to snag and run.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Bambi Pretty in yellow
I agree with everything the previous reviewer said about this cardigan, especially the delicate factor. I too would not wear any jewelry that may snag. The yellow version would be classified as 'mustard' and I found it to be pretty well true to size for flowy Anthro cardigans. For example, I usually wear an XL in close fit tops and blouses, but with flowy sweaters such as this, I was able to size down to a large. I am looking forward to wearing the yellow cardigan for fall, but this can certainly be worn all year round as it is lightweight and suitable for for spring/summer as well.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Alnilam So sad: beautiful but don't think it will work
I fell in love with this cardigan in the product shot. I have been looking for a yellow/mustard cardigan and I loved the delicate pointelle detailing. It looked like another one of Anthro's sweater homeruns.
It still may be a homerun for many people, but having tried it on in person I don't think it will work for me .Here's why:
1) The color is not the bright yellow-y yellow pictured but more muted and greenish. I honestly think the color is pretty hideous actually--the word I would have to use for it is "putrid." Not a good word!
2) The sleeves were WAAAY tight--so weird because I have pretty thin arms. I could not push or roll them up at all, which I find very uncomfortable. I had originally tried a size small, one size down from my usual, because it looked very loose and flowy so I thought sizing up might help but there was virtually no difference in the sleeves in the M and it was sort of loose and unflattering everywhere else.
3) The material was oddly rough and itchy. This is weird because it's a linen-viscose blend and I usually have no trouble with either of those fabrics. I have very sensitive skin, but I usually only have problems with wool so I was surprised. This will probably not bother most people, but sensitive, itch-prone ladies may want to stay away.
So ultimately this was not workable for me. I do think the details are lovely (though as others warn, delicate! there is actually a tag attached warning you against wearing jewelery with it) and the shaping is very nice. I'm so sad; I was planning on buying this with my birthday discount but I guess the hunt for the perfect yellow cardigan continues!
