Rated 2 out of 5 by Tinkkkk Cute Style, but Scratchy
Very cute sweater. The actual sweater looks the same as the picture. Problem: it feels a little scratchy. The underside of the garment is scratchy, more so than the topside. Also,the yarns already started stretching out just from trying it on. So this translates to it losing its shape and getting snagged easily. I guess you get what you pay for, because the price is very reasonable.

I loved this sweater from the minute I first laid eyes on it. When I tried it on, I absolutely could not leave it in the store - even at $118, which was out of my budget at the time. It was soft and perfectly structured, and absolutely belonged in my closet.
I tried on the sweater again at home and noticed that it wasn't quite as structured as it had been in the dressing room. It was losing its shape!
The next, and final time that I put on this sweater I noticed that not only was it becoming baggier every time I put my arms through it, but it was leaving fuzz balls all over my dark pants.
Unfortunately, this garment wasn't a winner for me so I returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JackieS True vintage style and color! Great price too!
Let me lay out all negative points upfront. Yes, it scratches, and it stretches as two previous reviewers pointed out. But I always wear a long sleeve tissue thin t-shirt (J crew) under my sweaters, so no problem with itchiness. The only part that will stretch is the elbow area after a day of wearing. So give it a rest.
The color and its lose knits give the unique vintage look. If you like Free People style (I am addicted), but don't want to go all out, this is a perfect alternative. I ordered my usual size small (I am 5'5, 125 lbs), I can see it slims my back with subtle bottom flare.
