Rated 3 out of 5┬áby anthropologist dolman sleeves
Love the color and print of this sweater and the way it's styled with jeans and boots. However, tried this on in my usual size s and the dolman sleeves wrecked havoc with the fit. The chest area is big since it comes down pretty low, and the arm holes are very low, so the fit was just off. It would not lay correctly on me, just gaped and hung on my chest and waist. Maybe a different figure would look terrific in this sweater. I hope so, it's warm and cozy.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby vintageflea Fits TTS. I wear a size 0. I am 5 ft 2 in and slender and I found the XS to fit comfortably. I prefer to wear it over a tee shirt as it dips lower than I'd like. The dolman sleeves are a nice size, not too wide, so I don't feel like I'm swimming in it. The sweater falls to my hips as pictured on the model. The colors are great. Grey, tan, black, and white contrast with a tangerine so you can wear it with many options. The fabric is soft and cozy. It looks hand- made.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby NCGirl Watch the pattern placement....
This sweater caught my eye in the catalog. I like pattern, but not too much of it, and this seemed like a good balance. I also liked the first model shot, but didn't realize until I bought it that the sleeves really are dolman ones. I am 5'6" and 34B. I ordered the XS. It wasn't too tight, but maybe a S would have been better for two reasons: 1. the diamond pattern hit me right at chest level, which, I felt looked like it was outlining "the girls". Not a look I like. 2. the dolman sleeves felt bulky. I like more fitted shapes, and so when my arms were down, this looked better, but when I moved around, I felt the sweater bunched under my arms.
I think if you have a larger chest, or order a size up, you might not have the same issues I did.
On the plus side, the sweater is very soft and substantial. I have another sweater from this designer and I think they are both very high quality. The colors are beautiful in person. I just wish the sleeves were fitted and the pattern was placed slightly differently.
