Rated 3 out of 5Â by SacAnnie Beautiful colors, but needs better tailoring
I almost ran to try on this beautiful printed sweater. But, alas, upon further inspection I noted the generally cheap, tight cut and the lack of structure inside the lapels, which meant that the parts of the latter tug at each other, straining the seam that holds them together. The lapels don't lay properly flat. I believe this beautiful print deserved better tailoring-- for this price, the sweater should have been lined in cotton voile. I hope the maker will try this type of print out again, but with better cut and attention to detail.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BBUSR Colorful and Unique
Unlike other reviewers, I'm not sure if I would say that this item runs small (vanity sizing fools us all, at times). Rather, I'd say it is a snug fit. For reference, I'm 5'7", 34b-26-34, 127lbs, and I purchased the medium for a close but not tight fit. I don't have any problems buttoning the front though I will admit the sleeves are quite long.
It's pretty unique, and I happen to really like the whole cardigan/blazer fusion this item has going on. The colors are very vibrant and could be paired with just about anything; dress it up or dress it down.
I recommend this item, though I can understand how it would not be for everyone. It's a traditional piece with a quirky pattern.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by TRAFALGAR VERY PRETTY, BUT VERY SMALL, ALMOST SHRUNKEN
I usually wear a size 0 or extra small , 33 bust, 26 waist, 5"2" tall, 109 lbs, but when I tried the size small, there was no xs, on in the shop I was amazed, it was so tiny,
The small was tight on my arms, super short waisted, It is if it is shrunken.
The colors are lovely, the design very pretty, and the product is very well made. The fabrication is very soft.
