Rated 3 out of 5Â by Lieutenant Interesting but fit is problematic
I am still not sure I will keep this, it is lovely, looks handmade, and that's the difficulty. The sleeves are very large and shapeless, giving a bulky look to my arms, the sleeve length is neither short nor is it really 3/4, just stops somewhere below the elbow-again, it looks like someone made this, or that I bought it at a craft fair, where size and fit are not true. Length is short, which is good for me since I am petite. If I keep it I will have to put in a hook & eye closure at the top because it tends to stay open very wide and that makes it even more shapeless.There are also wisps and pieces sticking out, leaving the impression that it is fragile and is starting to unwravel (maybe that's the design, I hope!). Colors are more muted and less of a stripe effect than in the picture. On the plus side it doesn't look like I bought it in a store and would not expect to see this coming and going. It's pricy- for almost $200 (including tax) it should have a better fit, especially the sleeves.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Blackbeauty cute online, not so-cute in person
I usually love everything I buy online, however, I was very disappointed when I received the sweater in the mail. It looks very beautiful in the photo and even when you take it out of the package. But when you put it on it's a very different story. The material is extremely rough on your skin, and the fit feels weird. I tried to roll up the sleeves and it bunches up strangely. There is also no way for you to have the front closed up because there are no buttons or a zipper. Please do not waste your money on this sweater, I returned it immediately!

This is beautiful-I love the way it looks with jeans. I am 5'2" 105lbs and the xs is perfect for me.
