┬áby Haggie Really nice cardigan. Found it comfortable to wear, I have sensitive skin and I found I could wear this with short sleeves not itchy at all.
The embroidery is very nicely done, nice quality no loose stitches, nice mix of colors. The cardigan itself is more of a very light beige unlike the cream it appears in the model shot. There isn't quite as much embroidery as in the catalogue shot it does not extend down the arm nearly as much. But the colors stand out more than I expected.
I ordered my usual medium, generally wear a 6. I found it to run TTS, except for the sleeves that seem long, it's not a fitted cardigan and is looser through the body but it fit me well on the shoulders.
A little on the pricey side the cardigan itself is pretty basic but I love the embroidery and know I will get a lot of wear out of it.

┬áby Kttyqueen Absolutely stunning sweater!
With all due respect, I cannot understand the first review for this sweater. It just arrived and I love it even more than I thought I would. In the picture it appears to be an off white color which I do not care for, but in person it is a light oatmeal color which accents the embroidery very nicely. The colors of the flowers are so crisp and pretty, and very very rich and some of the flowers are thread while other are straw, like the straw flowers on a 1960's straw purse, but of much better quality. This in my opinion gives the sweater a super modern and unique feel. Runs TTS, so if you want a small close fitting sweater order smaller. If you want a sweatercoat which is how this sweater is marketed, than order up like I did; I got an XL and I can layer underneath. I will wear this sweater for years or until it falls off of me! and it looks very expensive, I know I will get tons of compliments!

Rated 1 out of 5┬áby kramercram So disappointing!!
It was love at first sight when I saw this online, I anxiously awaited the arrival of what I was sure to be my new fave sweater. When I saw this in person I could barely believe it was the same sweater I saw online. I paid full price which was crazy expensive, this sweater is not well made at all. At best , it looks like a 30$ sweater! The embroidery is very loose poor quality (some of which seems to be a PAPER material) The sweater runs pretty big and even if you buy a smaller size it has a thick "look" to it which is not flattering like the one shown on the model. It is a loose stitched sweater with big gaps and I doubt it would last one washing. I am heart broken as it was so beautiful online, sadly I won't even buy this when it goes on sale. Anthro dropped the ball on this one, iIt is well below Anthro's usually high standards.
