Â by GeoInCalifornia Statement Piece! TTS! Cropped! Fussy!
This cardigan is cropped. There is only an inch difference in length between the Regular and Petite.
SIZE: I ordered this in Black, in my normal size Small Regular for most Anthro Brand Sweaters like Monogram. I normally wear a size Medium for non-Anthro Brands. Iâm 5â5â tall, 130 lbs, 34D, 35-28-36, short arms, and long torso.
FIT: TTS! Well placed seams down the back of the cardigan offer a tailored fit. The sleeves were loose enough to be comfortable without looking sloppy. My arms are short for my height so I rolled the ribbed cuffs up a few inches. The hemline hit above the waistband of my jeans. Thatâs where a black velvet tank came to the rescue. It was just long enough to add several inches to the length of the cardigan. The velvet has the same contrast as the collar, so it looks like part of the cardigan. It also gives coverage at the deep V-neck.
DETAILS: The buttons are gold metal with a touch of elegant sparkle. But they are thin and sharp, which makes it difficult to button/unbutton. The placket is nicely re-enforced with grosgrain ribbon and has a security hook and loop of thread at the top. The removable faux fur collar is attached with numerous stretchy loops and tiny buttons. After wearing the cardigan for a few hours, one button had come undone.
KNIT FABRIC: The Cardigan is ribbed in two directions and holds its shape very well without stretching out. The body is mostly Cotton, with Rayon, Nylon, Cashmere and Spandex. I needed to pull it down after sitting or it tends to stick to the tank and bunch up. The collar is Acrylic/Polyester and has a silvery appearance under bright lights. It was slightly prickly around the neck. It sheds very little. I would remove the collar before hand washing the Cardigan.
Recommended! TTS! The length is cropped. Try a longer tank underneath. This is a statement piece that attracts attention even when itâs dressed down with jeans.

Â by starjen Amazing, flawless, dazzling sweater.
I want this in both colors. I have it in black and I love it. It's so fancy and beautiful. It's very comfortable but it's not too warm. It's super cute and feminine.

If you like fur on your sweaters, this is the one to buy. The fur collar is very shiny and rich looking, the seaming on the back adds an extra, expensive look to this sweater. I gave it 4 stars for quality because the sweater is 100% cotton and I think if it had some wool to it it would retain its shape better. This looks better tried on than on the hanger. Plan to wear it a lot.
