Rated 2 out of 5 by AmosE Poor design
I wanted so much to love this sweater. First let me say I LOVE the small sequins throughout the knit. It gave that subtle sparkle that is so pretty. However, that is the only good thing I can say about it. The knit fabric is very rough and scratchy, so I would have always had to wear a long sleeve top underneath it. I first ordered a medium, which is my normal QVC size and the sweater hung on me like a tent. It was enormous - so I sent it back and reordered a small. That came being too small! The sizing of this sweater is wacky. Besides that, no matter what size I had, the overall shape is boxy and not attractive at all. I find it hard to believe this is a Halston design, as I have found nicer fitting sweaters at Wal-Mart.
Rated 3 out of 5 by barbD Very Scratchy.
As I plan to layer this over a white button down blouse, scratchy is not a concern, but if u plan to wear this alone, you may want to pass.. Very rough yarn!
Rated 2 out of 5 by LynnInAtlanta Beautiful but ITCHY Fabric!
Love the relaxed style, the subtle sequins, the length, and the colors (I purchased both pink and black). BUT the fabric is itchy, scratchy, and uncomfortable. I could wear a skinny tee or a spanx camisole but that would not stop the scratching on the arms and around the neck. I rated the sweater 2 stars for the relaxed style and the soft glow of the sequins but could not rate higher because of the fabric. I returned both of them.

I guess I'm one of the few who loves this sweater. I don't necessarily disagree with what other reviewers are saying, but I think there are ways to make this lovely sweater work. For one, I'm very sensitive to how fabric feels (unfortunately beautiful Irish wool sweaters put me through the roof), but I actually don't find this sweater to be too scratchy. I wouldn't recommended wearing it for 12 hours (because of the sequins I wouldn't wear it for a workday regardless). However, I purchased the sweater to wear to church and then to lunch. So I don't think it will bother me as long as I don't wear it all day, which is fine. As far as the sizing, I think if one reviews the specific garment measurements, you'll be able to find the accurate size. I did, and find that the xxs fits perfectly. With that said, I only wear QVC xxs when the item runs big; in department/mall sizing I'm usually a small. I am extraordinarily grateful for the sleeve length. I'm 5"7" with long arms and too short "long" sleeves are a source of frustration! Finally, I think the host Pat (love her) mentioned the need to wear shapewear underneath. You could, but I ordered the blush and find that as long as I wear a nude bra (I have fair to light skin) this sweater is not too see through.
Rated 1 out of 5 by petsey Very Disappointed
This sweater was such a disappointment. It was HUGE I would probably have to go down 2 sizes if I liked it but I didn't like it at all. It was so itchy, I had it on for maybe 10 seconds and had to immediately take it off. plus like I already mentioned it was huge and the neckline was all stretched out and came to the ends of both shoulders! I sent it back immediately the next day. Extreme waste of money and postage.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Catmommy1 Pretty, but boxy...
I saw Pat DeMentri wearing it on a show and thought it was really pretty. However, when I got it home, it was big and boxy looking on me. I tried it on with a few skirts and pants I would probably wear it with, and it just did nothing for me. Also, it was a bit scratchy against my skin. Given that, I'm returning it. :-(

Runs very large. I normally wear a size 14 and the large was swimming on me. Sending it back for a smaller size. Other than the size, its a nice sweater.
Rated 2 out of 5 by VivianE Had to Return
Beautiful color and love the sparkle but I had to return as it is extremely scratchy and uncomfortable. I think the way the sequins are attached is the problem. Should be fine if you wear something underneath which I hate to do. Would love to see this idea return in a sweatshirt fabric or something that is soft and not scratchy. I do have a cotton knit tunic with sequins that is wonderfully comfortable from Quacker Factory so hope could come back in soft comfy material instead. The sparkle is very flattering. Please bring us more. Would love pale blue, blush, ivory....Thx
