Rated 5 out of 5 by Cherie12 Love this cardigan!
It is just what I want in a cardigan. First day I wore it two complete strangers complimented me on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Idgierolex Great casual wear
This review will be killing two birds with one stone. I am reviewing all of the colors for the alpine luxury cardigan, the tweed cardigan the pleated-neckline print tee and the patchwork-print tee (yes, I bought all seven sets).
I am 5’4 140lbs with my height coming from my legs. I have a short torso (with a small tire of fat around my waist) and longer arms.
I purchased these items for casual wear and as sweater sets, they are perfect for this purpose. The Alpine luxury cardigan and the pleated-neckline tee are the classer of the two. I would not wear the sets to work in a corporate environment and this is because the tees from both sets have a poor quality print job, dragging the quality down and I do not believe they have the excellence needed for a high-end atmosphere. With a better tee or top, both sweaters would be fine on a dress down day in almost any situation. The orange tweed is a fun color.
I bought both sweaters to be worn open. I bought the x-small in the sweaters and the small in the tees. I like the cut, fit and drape of the alpine luxury cardigan better than the tweed cardigan, while the pleated-neckline print tee is the nicer of the two tees. The sweaters are soft, not too scratchy and are pretty darn close in color as they look online. There is not a difference in fit between the colors. They are boxy and as continue to lose weight, I will take them in a smidge.
Both sweaters fit in the shoulders, but I had just enough length in the arms to reach my wrists. The length clears in the back and drapes without clinging. It lands at upper thigh with both sweaters. Neither sweater is of heavy weight. With the tee, the sweaters sets are perfect for indoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meemster Go for petites!
I have learned to order the longer sweaters in petites, since I am short and don't look great in longer styles. This is a great sweater with little flecks of color in it that make it very versatile. The weight will also make it a great transitional piece for spring and fall, with a t-shirt, or winter with a turtleneck. Love the color and the great sale price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janey62 Beautiful tweed color is the outstanding feature of this sweater.
Great pop of color in a dreary winter. Love this sweater, probably moving on up to one of my top favorites!

I was so pleased when I first tried on this sweater. It's comfortable and works well with layering for both casual and work attire. The color worked out much better than expected.....many compliments on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Havanamusic Tweed cardigan
i love this cardigan. It is soft and comfy. I like things a little oversized so it fits just right. I like having pockets and the one button closure is perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Xxdebxx Extra long sleeves
I bought the green. Like the fabric, but agree with others about the button. Makes no sense to have a smaller button behind the large one. I won't be wearing it buttoned, so it doesn't affect me that much, but for those of you who would, it's not quite right. This is the first top I have purchased from J Jill that has exceptionally long sleeves. These are easily 3 inches longer than any top I have purchased here. I will have to push them up as rolling them up doesn't look quite right with this one. I do like the green, which is what I was after and the sweater does seem to be well made. Getting it on sale makes it a keeper.
