Rated 3 out of 5 by cbrand Design Flaw
Although listed as a "sweater", this is really a knit coat. It wears like a coat and it is lined like a coat.
The knit pattern is cute and visually flattering. The colors are perfect for Fall. I loved the way the collar framed my face. The coat was soft and oh so comfortable to wear. Once I had it on, I didn't want to take it off.
I would have bought this piece at full price, but, there was a major design flaw: there are NO pockets. I suppose that by calling it a "sweater", you can get away with forgetting to include pockets. However, when I put on something that for all intents and purposes is a coat, I want it to have pockets that I can slip my hands into. It really isn't even a want. It is a need.

Very charming style! I agree with all the other reviewers, with regard to the obvious strengths of this piece (yes, it is more "lined coat" than "sweater")-- I applaud the unusual diagonal lines of top button-loop and the knit-pattern. Overall, very luxurious without looking stuffy, especially the back-view. My skin doesn't like scratchy wool, but the double-cream collar is very soft, making a scarf optional for me (overall fiber content: 37% cotton, 37% wool, 2% alpaca, 1% mohair, plus acrylic/poly).
I found the medium to be fitted enough without being bluky, but roomy enough for long sleeves underneath (for reference, I am 5'8", 135 lbs, #34-B). I could see this piece becoming a standard favorite, every Autumn and Winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edmontongirl Beautiful Sweater!!!!!
I was waiting for this sweater to come into the store and it finally did today and I am very happy with this!!! It is lined so it will be awesome for the fall.I love the length as I am curvy ;) After having 4 kids I am not a huge fan of these cropped sweaters that are everywhere this year!!!! I am usually a 10-12 and the medium fit really good and is very flattering. I would say it is true to size or a tad on the bigger side. It is expensive but the quality is there and I would rather have a few Beautiful sweaters in my closet than a bunch of cheaper ones that I just "like" not "love", but that is just me. The colours are very warm and this piece will go with coloured jeans, cords or Jeggings. TOTALLY picking this up tomorrow..It is on hold for me :))))))
