Rated 5 out of 5┬áby snowswede lovely
This is a great little cardigan. I tried it in the gray, which is a perfect year-round neutral where I live in the Northeast. The details on the sweater are great, including the small side slits in the bottom hem. In my usual size medium I found the sweater to run a tad small. I have broad shoulders and a larger chest and found that for it to fit comfortably through the shoulder area I had to unbutton the top two buttons. It would have been difficult to wear anything but a cami/tank or a lightweight dress underneath. I found the sleeves to be narrow at the top though they were the correct length. The side slits were also pulling a little when the sweater was buttoned all the way to the bottom. Though I could certainly wear this sweater in my regular size, for me personally to get the look in the on-line photo I would have to size up.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby silverspoon great layering piece
This cardigan is really beautiful, especially in the mustard yellow. I also like the pink ribbon lining the inside which adds a cute accent when the cardigan is unbuttoned. I tried on XS and it fits TTS (a bit loose around the arms). The pointelle design is see-through similar to the Pointelle Diamond Sweater last winter. The sweater itself is delicate and thin which makes it a perfect layering piece for summer but I do worry about it snagging.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby AB115 Perfect Summer Sweater
I usually don't like cardigans. They can tend to look too conservative for my liking or they pull or gap in just the wrong places on me but this one has none of those issues. I'm usually an xs or small in tops (34-26-36 115# for reference) and I went with a small in this. I can leave it open or button it completely and it doesn't pull open or look/feel too tight anywhere. The material is soft and comfy. I hate wool and anything itchy and this sweater passes the test. The arms fit nicely (length and size) not too tight. It hit right at my hip (5'4). If it's possible for a cardi to be slimming this one is! The maize color is a rich deep yellow that looks great even with my pale-ish skin and light hair. This looked great over t's and on its own with a cami underneath. The diamond shape detailing on the front is a really nice touch. I'm not sure I would be as excited about this sweater in the grey version for full price but the maize is totally worth the investment!
