Rated 4 out of 5 by Diana17 runs large; fabric is great
This sweater is really nice and the fabric is wonderful--VERY soft wool, would be really warm on a cold day. I'm returning it because the fit wasn't quite right for me. My regular size is a 10P, and a JJill MP usually fits well or if anything is a bit loose, depending on the item. For a pullover sweater tunic like this, though, I usually order an LP because I'm a bit top heavy, I like to layer with turtlenecks, etc., and I like a somewhat loose fit with this type of item. An LP in this sweater was way too big though, especially through the arms, back, shoulders etc. I'll probably exchange for a smaller size. The softness of the fabric is really nice, though

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gattina Too much. Just: too much. At least for me. For details, see below.
The first JJill product I've disliked and returned. (I became a customer only last month.)
Colour: too loud. I love green, and it's a fairly rare offering; a "nice" green is even rarer, and I really liked the colour in the photos. When I tried it on, however, it was much too loud—a blaring horn, not a clear bell. That may be because it turned out to be a "cold" green (heading towards blue) and not a "warm" green (heading towards yellow). This is important because the neck sits very close to your face, even if you roll it over.
Now, I suffer from the most boring combination ever: I'm a fair-skinned, brown-eyed brunette, or was before my hair started turning grey. On the other hand, my skin has a warm tone. (This fact came to my attention only a year ago, not long before my 55th birthday. Oh boy. I finally understood why all those pink blushers and lipsticks I kept on buying always looked so awful on me.) Anyway, this colour would probably look great on someone with darker hair and skin, or on a very light-skinned blonde—but only if her skin is cool-toned.
I would have tried to exchange the sweater for one in beige, except...
Fit: too large. I bought small, but a second me could have got in there as well. OK, that's an exaggeration, but it really was too baggy at the back for me. It would look terrific on a skinny girl. Make her look all waif-like.
Material: I didn't really like the material, either. It was soft, but felt, somehow, artificial, almost sticky. I am, however, very, very picky, in what I know is an irrational sort of way, about materials. You may love it.
Sorry, JJill. Didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sukie1 LOVE THIS!
This is my favorite sweater. Started with the black one and went right back and bought the 2 other colors. Soft, warm and roomy. Nice, close drape over front mid-section trouble spot....skims over hips and not too bulky considering its "winter" styling. I love the loose neck. Not itchy. Haven't laundered yet, but will do so with great care. Will go so well with jeans. I'm 5'5"135 and size Small is perfect with a little room for moving. Love it.

I had my eye on this for a while but the problem I had was that I wear sweaters with black pants and the two color combinations with black in them were a bit too strong for this pale silver-blonde.
So I bought the mushroom color and matching gloves, and after scrutinizing them with black pants, yep they needed a touch of black to look best on me.
Being an artist/designer and also knitting designer I simply took very thin black wool and embroidered my own black stitches over a circle of the small brown dots and voila! Just enough matching punch to go with my black pants.
I find JJill always inspires my imagination - for instance their colored tanks go perfectly with my Foxcroft colored overshirts.

I've been drooling over this sweater for a couple of years and was thrilled to finally get one on sale. It's so soft and flattering. Can't wait for the cold weather to return!

I ordered this sweater recently in a Medium, which is the size I usually wear but the sweater was too large. I returned the sweater and ordered the Small instead which fits perfect. The sweater has beautiful vibrant colors, nice length and feels great. Can't wait to wear it next Fall/Winter.
