Rated 4 out of 5 by Yes, Cotton & Polyester it is Just received this elegant sweater/blouse in the mail yesterday. Some interesting surprises! Pro's: fits beautifully, layered with cami, sleevelss turtle-neck, or worn with a bandeau (the v-neck, buttoned, hits right at cleavage-point for me). The flow of the bottom half is lovely above slim pants. I could see shorter women wearing this as a short "dress" over leggings. Size Small works well for me (for reference, I am 5'8", 135 lbs, 34-B) while still fairly loose at the waist, buttoned up. The mid-length sleeves have a nice little slit near the elbow, which maintains clean fit without being tight. Con's: I am surprised at the choice of material! Although the title on the mailing slip reads "Felted Cardi with Silk," the tag on the garment reads "Upper Body: 100% cotton," "Lower Part: 100% Polyester." Yes, even the "felted" band at the waist-- if you hold it to the light, it is just fluffed polyester. I am a huge fan of Knitted & Knotted-- their wooly little sweaters in my drawers and closet have been garnishing compliments for years. Regarding this cotton/polyester cardigan, I would have been very happy to pay more $$ for the Real Thing, truly! As it is, I will watch for the sale-price to come along, because "real" or not, this piece is unique and beautiful and I will wear it a lot. I just wish a few more sheep and silk-worms had been involved. August 31, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great design; lightweight I got this cardi in the dark gray/ tree scene combination. The dark gray has a hint of dark brown and purple in it... very subtle. The printed part is a wee bit brighter and more saturated than it looks on my computer screen... the colors aren't so faded out. I like the design and the color combinations a lot. The sweater is a mix of materials... cotton up top, but a flowy polyester at the bottom printed area. The printed area looks like a photo... very artsy and dreamy. It's the perfect length for skinny jeans or leggings. I usually wear an 8 or a Medium in cardigans so that the buttons don't gap (I'm on the busty side), but I was able to take a Small in this with no gapping. My only complaint is that it seems overpriced for a sweater this lightweight and made with rather ho-hum fabrics (cotton and polyester). $118 is a bit steep... I think $88 or $78 would have been more appropriate. Fortunately, I found this sweater priced considerably lower on eBay. Ladies, if a particular Anthro item's price makes you wince, it's often worth searching for it on eBay. Sometimes you can find new clothes from the current season there. I've gotten lucky a few times! :-) Overall, I recommend this sweater. Although, don't expect it to provide you with much warmth... it's definitely a 3-season layering piece (unless winters are really mild where you live). October 17, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful! I love this sweater; it's beautiful and the colors are pretty and autumnal. It didn't strike me as being low-quality at all, and the fact that the felt isn't super-finished feels on purpose. I'm a big fan of this sweater! Only problem with the fit, is that it makes me look a little pregnant. Beware if you are on the bosomy side (i'm a c cup) and are concerned about such things, I guess, because it isn't super fitted in the stomach/waist. On the other hand you can eat a big lunch in it. Works great with skinny jeans and boots. I'm 5'5" and ~130lbs, vary between S and M at anthro, and the S fits me nicely, including buttoning over the ladies. October 12, 2012
