Rated 5 out of 5Â by KinCO Wonderful cardigan!
I bought this in XL and it's definitely a flowy style (just as pictured on the model). The sleeves run a bit long for me but I don't need to cuff them. The style is perfect! I love how comfortable this knit is. The seams are sewn well. The colors are a more muted rust & blue than shown in the photo. I think it will hold up well. It's a light-weight sweater so I'll be careful with it. But, I love everything about it. If you want a more fitted look, then sizing down would be good. I wanted mine to look as pictured so I got the XL even though a Large would have worked. The seam detail on the waist works great for my shape.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Izzykat Unique and well cut cardigan! The pattern is beautiful (true to the website), and the fabric is thin enough that it drapes well. I also love the details in the construction in the back--I'm an hourglass and am curvy along the back, and this is more flattering than most cardigans that I've tried. It's also more flexible than I would have though--I've paired it with the Melusine lace dress in ivory with a woven leather belt and an aqua necklace, a charcoal dress, a lavender dress, and jeans and a T-shirt.
I grabbed a size up because I thought it looked like it ran small when I eyeballed it, but my usual size (small) fit perfectly through the body. However, the medium was a LOT longer--at least two inches. If you're on the short side (>5 foot 4 inches) and take a medium or large, it could make an adorable wrap dress as well as a cardigan.
The pattern is printed, not embroidered, but I wouldn't expect embroidery at this price point. The only real downside is the polyester content--I'd be glad to pay more if it was an all natural blend. I just hope it wears well...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aimerz Adorableâ€¦runs big!
I tried this on in an XS in storeâ€¦.the arms were super long! I am 5'4 and size XS/0â€¦I went with an XXSP in this (the XSP was sold out!). The XXSP fits perfect and the arms are still a tad long, but this is a keeper. So cozy. I love it and love the look and colors.
