This sweater is beautiful...but, even though I used the sizing chart, the sweater was extra big.. I had to return it
I recently bought this sweater. I was amazed at the fit, color, and quality. I bought the natural color to wear with everything. Living in the south, it is usually too warm to wear a sweater and a coat in winter months. This fit true to my QVC size. The faux pearl buttons give it a classy touch. I plan to wear this with turtlenecks, long skirts and boots. I had a pullover style Irish sweater once, but never wore it. It was so heavy and bulky I gave it away. This cardigan is perfect in every way! Don't hesitate to buy this sweater.
Pretty but Roomy
I ordered this in the natural and size small. I recently lost 50 pounds and my other Aran sweaters are way to large for me now =( . I was surprised to find this one as roomy. I would like to fit a wee bit closer, but as you know it is no longer available in the XS so I will be keeping it and this way I can comfortably layer under it. Now I can't wait for cold weather so I can wear it !! = )
Beautiful but large
I bought this for my mom's 94th birthday last year, and she loves it! It is ideal for a more petite person as some of the sweaters can be a little overpowering. The sizing was a little difficult for me to judge, but the xxs turned out to be the best choice for her. The style is a little dressier than some and the buttons are beautiful framed shell buttons. Not scratchy at all and I wash it by HAND and lay flat to dry for her. It's so lovely I may get one for me too!
SO I would have given this a 5 star but the pocket on one side was torn. The only reason why I am not returning it is I can sew it up. This does run extremely large! Other than that I am so in love with this cardigan! I wish they would have had a medium in the green.
Although the sweater arrived when the weather turned warm here in the South, it feels so soft and the fit is great. Looking forward to wearing it next winter. Really nice quality.
Soft and pretty . . . but
This is a very pretty sweater but four of the buttons fell off first time I wore it. Thankfully didn't lose buttons so after sewing them back on all is good. Be sure to check buttons before wearing.
i love the way this sweater fits me,i always get from this label,John Cullen's sweaters are so beautiful,i am tall an the red just makes me smile,you see other sweater Co.'s just do not fit right. i got it in a large no problems,i try to get at least one from John each year on St. Patrick's day,this year i got 3.got one with a hood several years ago with the black shamrocks on the pockets an a zipper to close wear it all the time in the cold weather up here in ma.from Aran Craft it is black&grey,it is a keeper.this new one, the only thing was the buttons was not sure i would like them but i do,will have to sew them on tighter though,why are they so loose?otherwise i love it. thanks,John&QVC,never miss ST.Patrick's day,being Irish,see you in Sept rose of Tralee.
This is a lovely sweater that has been very well constructed. It does run just a little large in my opinion, however, I like the loose fit as I wear a tee shirt or cami under it and wear it partially buttoned.
I rated it as 4 stars because the buttons have a metal trim on the edges that look silver in some places and golden in others.
Very warm, and the design is very pretty.
Best One Yet~!
I tend to buy a sweater a year on St. Paddy's Day because I just absolutely love the Irish Sweaters. This one in the Sapphire Blue is stunning! The sizing is right, the length is perfect (I'm 5'8") and the buttons make it, they're beautiful Comfortable and warm too!. My DH who never comments on anything new said, "Wow that is beautiful on you!".... Well.... needless to say, I will probably be back for another color. Very happy! :)
This is my third Aran Craft sweater and it is another winner. I ordered the natural this time, have enjoyed wearing it, and it has received many compliments. These sweaters are Irish treasures!
I really wanted to like this cardigan, but it was large on me and itchy. I have very sensitive skin, so I had to return. It is a nice cardigan though with exceptional quality.
