Rated 2 out of 5 by Pommersdorf Added lbs!
I've been looking for a new longer navy cardigan to replace my old one from J.Jill, because I have worn the old one to shreds. This sweater is not it for me. I put it on and it added a visual 20 lbs to my hips--where I least need them! You can get the idea if you look carefully at the model. The sweater bulges out at the hips and it just does't flatter. This will be going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gma2 Very comfortable and totally stylish cardigan. Great addition to your wardrobe.
This is the second cardigan I've purchased
from this group. Last fall I bought the same sweater in the khake green color. I love it's versatility, comfort, and good looks. When I saw the navy sweater on sale, I couldn't resist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaWalrus I like this cardigan
I ordered this in black, usual size, and it fit fine. I like the style. It is longer than most of my cardigans, but it doesn't make me look shorter. The fabric is lighter than I thought it would be, but it seems warm. Since it arrived only recently, I can't comment on wearability or laundering.

Love everything about the cardigan and the scarf. Fit is great, fabric is fabulous. Have to say that J. Jill is my favorite clothing store. Clothes are always comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHflowergardener Lovely green color
I was pleasantly surprised to find the quality and color of this sweater to be better than pictured. The color was not quite the same as the online photo but it did not disappoint. I definitely recommend this Hyde Park cardigan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kath188 Beware of Length but a wonderful cardigan
This review is for a regular medium (not a petite).
This is a wonderful cardigan but it is much shorter than pictured on the model. The medium size measures 26 inches from the back neck down to the hem; this is the true length. The collar is designed to sit above the neck, so when it is measured from the top of the collar to the bottom hem, it is 27 1/2 inches; this is not the true length.
It has 3 -1 inch marbled brownish-gray, buttons, and the buttonholes are well made. They should not unravel. The cardigan band is 1 1/2 inches wide.
The sleeves are almost wrist length. and the ribbed cuffs are about 2 inches long and look good pushed up. The sleeves look a little short when left down, so you may need to wear a cuffed shirt.
The fabric is very nice. It is a light to medium weight with a good hand and a nice drape. A tiny, firm, ribbing in the fabric gives the knit fabric enough body to keep the shaping.
The princess seams are very subtle, do not stand out that much, and only give a slight shaping.
It is not truly a relaxed cardigan. It is more of a fitted cardigan with ease. Many tops and cardigans are designed to be snug, this is not snug, but it is not as relaxed as other J Jill cardigans.
It is a fitted armhole, not a drop shoulder or t-shape. The armhole is made in the European style, which is high, fitted, and cut in, so it does not sit that well over short or long sleeve tops unless they are also fitted and sung. Sleeveless tops are better unless you have thin arms.
If you want the relaxed look, and you want to wear long sleeve shirts, you may need to go up one size.
