Rated 4 out of 5 by LovesDogs Warm, everyday sweater
Bought this in the dark grey heather in my usual petite size. Not too long on my 4'10" frame, and the sleeves were the right length, too. The color was true to my monitor, and although the fabric can be slightly itchy, it's not one I planned to wear without a long-sleeve underlayer anyway. Nice detailing on the front and love the pockets. Can be worn for work or play. Great sale price makes this worth a try; its comfort, design and color make it a keeper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ann1972 Disappointed
This sweater looks lovely in the catalog and online but, in reality, was a much bulkier knit than I expected. Also, the unusual rolled collar did not drape nicely and looked uneven.
Since I got this on sale, I won't be returning it but I will try to find someone who likes it more than I do.
It's not terrible, but it just wasn't what I had expected.

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 kebland Warm, But Not Too Bulky
My sweater just arrived today, so pardon my excitement. I was thrilled as soon as I opened the bag. The blue color is rich and deep, like a good sapphire. The design is perfect for my taste: simple and practical, so that when worn, it falls just right. But as with most JJill products, it does run big. I take a medium in many clothes, but a SMALL fits me beautifully. And I despise anything too tight. So that will give you an idea about just how how it runs (technical problems with slider prevented me from moving it.) As for scratchiness, I can feel a little bit of it, but nothing bothersome. I have been wearing it all afternoon, with just a cami. It is nice and cozy warm as well. To top it off, I bought on sale. All in all, a great buy!

I just wore this for the second time today, and I couldn't wait to put it on. A gorgeous color, soft fabric, and sweet drape. Looks awesome with jeans or dressier pants. Thanks, J. Jill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DixieDrawl Beautiful Red Cardigan
Very simple style, warm and luxurious feel. The catalog description is right! I got it in red - a really beautiful red. Sizing is right on, no need to size up or down. It does ride low on the hip which I really like. You won't be disappointed with this one. Another winner from J.Jill!
