Rated 4 out of 5 by ghcl Beautiful light weight duster for late summer to autumn
I love the length and A-line flare of this cardigan that is more elegant to cover my not too curvy waist line. The pattern is really lovely but need to pair with a light color top (just like the model shown) to brighten up my skin color; that's the only drawback for this design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nomad61 Love this sweater
I am 5'8" and curvy in body type. I love this sweater, the length is great, and the amount of fabric is perfect to keep it from clinging to my curves. sleeves are nice and long. I prefer the a nice comfortable fit that is still polished and this fits the requirement. The sweater is not too bulky and lays very nice. If there were more colors I would buy more. Highly recommend!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by leahood Beautiful fabric, disappointing fit..
I absolutely love the pattern and fabric of this sweater, but was hugely disappointed by the fit. I was so conflicted that I thought seriously about having it altered, but decided that it needed too much re-fitting. The shape is very full and loose - even for me, and I am not a skinny girl. I am 5'7" and wear a size 14, or a M/L. I could wrap the front over far enough to make a double-breasted sweater. There are no buttons or closures on the front either, so with a lot of fabric, both in front and back, that sweater hung in an unflattering, sack-like manner. I would like to add that I am very disappointed that J Jill is offering several attractive cardigan sweaters this season, with NO buttons, hook/eye, toggles or anything to close them. Some offer a type of safety pin ( !?), but I am not going to stick a pin in a sweater, and hope it doesn't rip a hole. Sometimes buttoning a cardigan makes for a more flattering appearance, and sometimes its just more practical - especially in chilly or breezy weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PTTP Love it
This sweater does not disappoint - I'm 5'8" and it falls to upper thigh and has an a-line shape. Very flattering, lightweight and comfortable. I'll probably wear it with just a black tank and pants and a long silver necklace for a polished look although it will just as easily go with jeans and a tee shirt. Very nice!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JTSHVL Great Idea but not for a Pear Shape
The cardigan looked so lovely on-line. Unfortunately the color and design did nothing for my plus sized pear shaped figure.
The quality is excellent and I'm sure it will look terrific on those who are more slender and perhaps on the tall side (I'm 5'5", usually a 3X, could have easily sized down to a 1 or 2X in this style).
The fabric is soft and design unique but it was too busy of a design for me and the colors just a bit too drab.
JJill has excellent quality. I will return this item but definitely try other JJill clothing. The other items I received in my order were terrific!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JulesA Beautiful light weight knit sweater
This is a beautiful sweater except for the way it hangs in the back...it looks a little large on me...too much material...but, I am 5'1" and 95 lbs...it may just look better on a taller person.
I am finding that JJill's XSP is sometimes just too big...an XXSP would probably be a better fit for me and for those who are truly a petite person.
I have seen this mentioned in some of the other reviews on other sweaters.
