Rated 5 out of 5Â by shopgirlchic Pictures do not do this justice!
This is another perfect example of something I have passed by and never would have looked at online, but in person, is so lovely! All the other reviewers have touched on the great attributes, except for explaining it' s finely knit, gauzy like texture, which makes it ethereal. This is very hard to see online. I bought the pink, which is the perfect pik and so flattering. I may consider the grey as well as I don't wear much black. The ruffles are so romantic and the way they angle downwards on each of the sleeves towards the cuffs is very slimming to the arm when you'd think that the ruffles would be adding bulk but it does not. The one button at the neck is very vintage looking and yet the way it then falls away from the neckline is super flattering. It is extremely delicate so care will be needed in wearing and caring for it. I will be wearing this with the jcrew cascade tulle layered skirt from a few years back and maybe a silk bustier to a summer wedding. But it will be great as a topper to many summer dresses in my wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by spanky Exactly what I was looking for
I was looking for a dressier light weight cardigan for the summer to cover spaghetti strapped dresses. This is perfect. Very sheer and could snag so be careful of jewelry but it is elegant and very light weight. For reference, I have a 36D bust and the L fit perfect. Drapes nicely. I bought the basic black but it goes with so many things.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by bartles High maintenance, low value, extremely pretty
I ordered two of these sweaters and both were immediate returns. This really is not a "sweater," it is a decorative piece. The single button at the top is extremely difficult to clasp and unclasp. The arms are tight. You cannot wear this sweater open. It has virtually no warmth value; instead, it would be good for covering up any sleeveless top or dress, but note that the sleeves are markedly skinnier than the rest of the sweater. So if you want it to fit your body well, it may be too tight on your arms; and if it fits your arms might be too baggy on your torso.
Additionally, per the label (and contrary to website instructions or other reviews) this is not hand-wash; it is dry clean only. For that reason alone I would not have ordered had it been correctly described.
