I wanted to really like this sweater. I purchased the black and white and also the pink and black. The colors were beautiful but the material was a type of cotton and it had a very large boxy fit. I returned both of them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by abcdef321 Skeptical, but surprisingly pleased
When I ordered this sweater, I was very skeptical about whether I would like it or not. The ultimate draw was the fact that is 100 percent cotton, and I originally went with the coral but within a few minutes edited my order to the mint green, knowing that the green would be more complimentary to my coloring. My skepticism derived from the fact that there is black along the sides of the sweater and this is the second sweater in a recent season in which Bob Mackie has used black along the sides.
One the sweater arrived and I tried it on I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, the leaves are big and bold, but the black along the sides is actually slimming! I don't know if I would go for more than one sweater with black along the sides, but I do like this one. I feel like Eve emerging from the Garden of Eden. But even more so, I feel as though I've just emerged from a painting by French Post-Impressionist artist Henri Rousseau, who worked in the Naïve or Primitive style. I so love the botanical works by Rousseau, that it stands to reason that I would be quite happy with this sweater.
If I could change one thing it would be the somewhat wide neck opening. It is not the first time I have said I'm not pleased with this type of neck opening, wishing for a more flattering and somewhat smaller shape of the neckline. That said, I still think it's a five star sweater. Love the cotton, the easy, unstructured shape, the comfort of the garment. Because this sweater is so different, so unique, I think wearing it will be fun!

Ordered this in a 2x for a little added room and it is stunning. I ordered the Ivory and Black and it flows so easily with no clinging. Very lady-like and dressy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kachina624 Great Gift
This is a soft,fine gauge sweater, not too heavy so as to overheat the wearer. I got the coral which is a soft peach color. It's very comfortable and generously cut for maximum ease. This would make lovely gift for any lady.
Rated 4 out of 5 by grl_come_undone Great Sweater
This sweater is beautiful, soft, and true-to-size. The sleeves are a tad long on me but I can deal with it. Very flattering. I receive compliments whenever I wear it. Launders well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cgs51 I Love This Sweater
I am very happy with the sweater I purchased. I ordered the Mint Green and it is absolutely
beautiful! I am a large woman 3X size and it fit perfectly and looks great .It is NOT clingy at all, and fits perfectly. My husband loved it too. I can't wait for it to get cool enough to wear it. Here in Virginia it is still a bit too warm for sweater weather. It is a light weight sweater, and so very, very soft. There is nothing about this sweater you wouldn't love.
Just a suggestion to Mr. Mackee, I wish you would make this style and design with white on black base. That would be so awesome
I would recommend this sweater to any size woman. You will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT. .
Rated 4 out of 5 by msmittzie Nice print but odd fit!!
Love Bob's clothing but lately they seem to be 'cut' differently-more boxy? This was too big and I was afraid the XS might be too small. Ordered the green-great shade!!
