┬áby razswirlgrrl Love the mushrooms, loathe the fabric
I was so excited to see the HWR label again, and I love the mushroom print, which is quite saturated (pine green, deep red, violet and blue) and looks very vintage and 1970's-esque. All pluses.
The shape of the sweater is fine, though not dazzlingly flattering- deep V neck, a little boxy, longish length and sleeves, good for layering. My medium seemed true to size for the style, and measured 20" across the chest and about 24" long.
Problem is, the fabric is a very weird blend- it's thin and oddly lightweight and tends to stick to itself, like static cling. It also clung to my body, which may not be what you're going for (see photo). The material looks prone to pilling (mine was an online order, arrived new with tags, and already had pills, which I tried to photograph) and the print looks like it will suffer from washing. The fabric feels more like a cheap acrylic blend than the cotton/rayon stated on the label, and the sweater is not substantial enough to be warm. Also, the color is not white or ivory as expected, but a sort of pale, dingy off-white-grey.
Bottom line: adorable print, but the cheap fabric killed it for me. Wish it were all cotton. Going back. May revisit at sale time.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby Cill Adorable print with a few flaws
First, I LOVE the print. The mushrooms are so adorable and unique! The problems I have are the fit and the quality of the sweater. The sweater is stiff and a little scratchy, definitley not the butter-softness I expect from a sweater this expensive. As for the fit, it runs a little big and boxy but the main problem is the v-neck is very low cut, so chesty ladies beware. I love v-necks but if you have "girls" of any size, wearing a cami underneath is a must. I'm 36DD and without a cami it is quite revealing. Also, the sweater seems a little short, but I am long-waisted. It looks great on the model so, if you look like that, I say give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby antrofan Beautiful sweater
I saw it on line couple days ago and I could not forget it so I went to my antro store to check it out. I tried it on and loved it. I started with my usual size M.
It is a loose sweater not form fitting I could have gone with a small but the upper arm in the small was tiny bit tight so I stayed with an M.
it is not a thick sweater but still not a thin see through fabric. Good quality, soft fabric. The design is so beautiful.
I like bold colors and bold color combination so I paired it with a red skinny jeans and a white/green stripes shirt , purple loafers and I love the look. The sweater can be worn without the blouse but the v neck was a little bit too deep for me so I opted for the blouse under.
Good length for sure not a cropped sweater. It looked to me from the picture of front and back of the model that the back is slightly longer which is not the case but the sweater is long enough to cover ones back well ,even with a lower sitting pants.. I wish it was a little less pricey but I just could not wait until it may go on sale.. Love it
