Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Loved this when I saw it online, and there was a promotion being offered at the time so I ordered it in an XS. I am 4' 11" and weigh about 94 pounds, very petite and small boned. Usually the XS fits and I usually only buy petite sizing so I thought this would fit no problem. However, it was too small, too narrow in the shoulders and tight through the back. It is beautiful though, very well made, but I would order up a size and hope that the sleeves aren't too long, especially if you want to wear something other than a t-shirt under it. It's very form fitted as you can get a sense of by the picture of the model all buttoned up in it. I hope you have better luck with this than I did. December 4, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice jacket with some qualifications I loved the look of this jacket online, so I ordered it quickly after it went on sale. I'm still a fan but a little less so after trying it on. First, the back and shoulders run a little narrow, as a previous reviewer said. I typically wear a size 6 but sometimes order up in jackets and sweaters to allow for layering. I'm glad I ordered up for this one, because even the 8 is just a hair tight. At the same time, the arms are a little too long, and the sides are a little baggy under the arms. (I'm guessing someone with a bigger bust would fill the front out better than I (I'm a 34B), eliminating any bagginess.) That said, the back is gorgeous. It flairs just so and curves gracefully below the front. After some internal debate, I have decided to keep the jacket because the flaws are not exaggerated enough to ruin the look of the jacket, which overall is tailored such that it runs close to the body and curves with me. I also liked that it is lined in both the body and the sleeves. I probably would not have kept it if I had paid full price, but the sale price is a good value for this unique jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacket/sweater crossover Bought this for my college age daughter mostly because of the style on the back - it is very flattering on someone with curves they want to accentuate. For sizing reference she is 5'2", 105 lbs., 32C, usually a size 0. I ordered this in a 2 & 4 since I often have to size up due to shoulders and bust and thought she may need to do the same. The 2 fits fine, but is a bit tight in the chest and won't allow for much layering, so the 4 worked out to be better for this type of jacket. We would have to have the sleeves shortened on both sizes. The quality is excellent with no complaints about anything on this piece. The front is a wonderful sweater with the sleeves and the back being wool. It is not scratchy at all as it is well lined with a beautiful pink fabric. This piece is definitely for cold weather only, but it is very pretty and not something you will find elsewhere; a great value at the sale price. December 27, 2012

BLUE MOTIF Style #:25941048 A traditional form of knitting, fairisle, so named for the tiny island in Northern Scotland where the technique started, is constructed with a five-color palette with two colors per row. We'd pair this cropped coat from Elevenses with skinny pants, riding boots and a leather belt. Buckhaven Fairisle Jacket
