Modern details keep our chic sweater jacket from looking too retro: exposed seams, a yummy marled yarn, and a reverse stitch that adds a tweedy effect. Just
the thing to swing over skinny cords or a sharp pencil skirt. Ribbing at the neck, placket, sleeves, and hem. Long sleeves. Hip length.
This sweater was made of the most gorgeous soft yarn (burgundy). Unfortunately, it is put together inside out, so the most gorgeous view is from the inside. The visible seams made my shoulders look huge, and the sleeves were way way too big, long AND wide. So sad to return, would like to see something else in this knit, rightside out.
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law in the burgundy multi and the color is great. She loves it and I was very pleased with the quality and style. It's extremely versatile and is a step up from the usual cardigan. I highly recommend.
Despite the bulky yarn, this sweater feels light, but is still warm. It's perfect for cool working spaces over a lighter-weight top. I chose brown and find that it goes with my predominantly green and rust wardrobe. With olive green, it almost looks like there's green in the sweater. I can see where it might start losing a little shape from taking it off and putting it on. But it's ideal for those of us who work in spaces that are not adequately and consistently heated. It could easily live on the back of a desk chair for use whenever needed. It fits true to size and gives an outfit a fairly polished appearance.

Like the styling, but after wearing it several times, it has stretched out, especially the sleeves. I will return for smaller size, but overall it is a warm and cozy sweater.

Great fitting sweater jacket. It is warm, thick and soft. I ordered both colors so I could see them before I decided which to keep. The blue has dark teal with grey yarn woven together, not quite as navy as the picture. It is a very pretty color that will last through fall and winter. The burgundy is actually brown, orange and burgundy yarns woven together. I think it creates a very neat effect perfect for fall that will add a pop of color to many outfits. So I wound up keeping both colors because I got them on sale of the day!
I wanted this to be a small casual sweater jacket, not at all baggy or boho, so I got the xs. I am 5'3" 120lbs, and it fits perfectly for me to closely layer a thin shirt underneath, with a coat on top.

I like the styling. The yarn is itchy, but I kept it because I will be wearing a shirt under it.
