Rated 4 out of 5┬áby no1anthroaddict Really Cute, But Very Tricky Fit
So agree with previous reviewer about how one needs to really watch out for the fit of this jacket. The colors in this are beautiful and artsy. That being said, I am normally a true 10 in Elevenses. I am short, so already thought I needed this in a Petite; luckily they had this in store in an 8, which gave me a pretty good gauge for how this would fit. In a regular Size 8 it was quite generous, except for across the bust, where it was rather tight. I debated on whether to get it in a 10P or an 8P, as I was afraid an 8P would be TOO tight in the bust/circumference, but a 10P would remain too large all over. This is an adorable, well-made coat, if your can pull it off!

With fall coming in the Northeast, this is totally impractical... and totally beautiful. I never pay full price for anything, but this is really, really pretty, very artsy, exactly the kind of thing one goes to Anthropologie for. I am a larger size, however, and I think that perhaps this might appear a little overpowering on a petite frame. That said, I felt like a tall, thin fashion model when I put it on, and to feel that way is worth every penny! Lovely coat.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby MaryinNY A beautiful jacket but beware of the cut and fit
The desing and choice of fabric of this jacket is outside the box ingenious and exquisite. The quality of the fabric is good. I ordered my usual size Petite 0. The shoulders of the jacket are padded but not bulky. There are two darts up front under the shoulders and two pleats at back. As shown in the picture, the two back pleats relase the jacket into a slight A line shape. The armholes are cut in more than I expected or more than what's shown in the picture on the web. The jacket is very tight around the upper chest area and the back above the releasing pleats and restricts arm movements. I am 5'4" and not busty (32b, 105lbs). The sleeves are short (2" above my wrists). The jacket falls to my upper thighs. Maybe Petite 2 or regular size 0 would fit better? Hopefull, one size laerger would give more room around the chest and upper back and not the rest of the jacket that's already roomy.
