A218158 - Joan Rivers Petite Length Shimmering Metallic Knit Duster
Great Choice for a Dressy Occasion
I am very pleased with this light knit duster and matching tank in black with gold. I also purchased Joan River's "Faceted Stone Flower" necklace in Brown (metallic) and it looks awesome together! #J274486. Clearanced-priced too. I'll wear this set with black crepe slacks, black dress heels and carry a small beaded evening bag to an upcoming evening wedding. At 5' 2" tall, I was prepared to have the duster shortened if I didn't like the long length on me, not being a long dress or "gown" person. So, I did have the duster shortened to a few inches above the knees and it is a perfect look for me now! Thank you Joan & QVC for an elegant look that is super comfortable and provides the coverage I needed.
Hum, don't know where to start. The fabric is cheap looking and scratchy especially around the neck, it's much too long even though I ordered a petite and 2 sizes down, when the front flys open the placket looks unfinished and, again, cheap. As far as the overall fashion look I would say very cheap.
I bought the petitie in both colors and am so glad that I did. I am 5'5" and they are a perfect fit for me. They arrived with no wrinkles, and they are lightweight so will not be hot this fall and winter. I think they are perfect- another winner from Joan.
FANTASTIC COVER UP.......BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! READ
JOAN THIS IS A FABULOUS COVER UP, THE SPARKLE AND THE SLIM FIT, VERY CLASSY. IT IS JUST GREAT FOR EVENING WEAR, OR A DAY TIME PARTY.....
ALTHOUGH, THERE IS A BUT!!!
YOU MUST GO A SIZE DOWN..........RUNS VERY BIG!
THEN, THE SLEEVES ARE WAY TO LONG......AND THE LENGHT IS ALSO VERY LONG, I ORDERED PETITE. I AM 5'2" TALL.
SO, I LOVE THE PIECE, JUST DON'T KNOW IF I CAN KEEP IT, TO MANY ALTERATIONS.....
IF YOU ARE TALL IT'S A GO!
YOU WOULD HAVE TO BELT IT, THEN HAVE THE SLEEVES CUT DOWN IF YOU ARE SHORT.....UNDER 5'2" OTHERWISE IT IS FABULOUS!!!!!
I bought this to go over a plain, long dress for a cruise. I thought this would change the look and therefore, one less complete outfit to pack. I really like the look and found it can go over a couple of other outfits to change things up a bit as well. It will be a bit bulky to pack, but since it's pretty and versatile, worth the bulk. I bought the "petite" since several reviewers recommended it and it was the right decision.
Beautiful and eye catching!!
I wore this over a long evening gown. Three fashionable ladies just had to know "Who are you wearing?" as they tugged on this beautiful duster. Two others came right out and said, "I WANT THAT!". This shimmering metallic knit duster was a hit. I love it and apparently so did several other women at the gathering. Thanks Joan!.

better on joan
so light weight that it may cling to whatever you're wearing underneath - unless a satin type fabric.
I like it!
I am 5'5" tall. I purchased the petite length, and it is ankle length on me. The lapel does flip over, as another reviewer stated, but that won't deter me! I like the duster well enough that I will just use double sided tape or just not bother it at all. It's not a major problem.
Received the duster and once I had it on, I was glad I got the Petite becasue if I had gotten the regular length,I would have walked on it, I an 5'5". The next issue was the inside seams they are not finished, they would open and fold back exposing the unfinished edges. Not a good look,sent it back the same day received.
Just the right touch of GLAM!
This duster is one of two of my first JR line. I have got to say that the duster, though a tad thin, adds a certain style over your dresses or slacks. I have paired it with a black velour jump suit and chunky bronze jewelry and flats, then wore it a few nights later with wool slacks, black turtleneck, silver accessories and heels. Both times it looked great. Even Joan and her posse wouldn't slam me in her stuff. Great stuff QVC and Joan.
Fit Off - Material VERY Sheer
While still pretty, I was surprised at just how sheer this material is. And the fit was way off - I ordered a petite medium with a bust measurement several inches larger than my own but I could not get the duster over my chest. I know this is not supposed to meet over the bust, but still way to small. Also, I am not normally a petite, but when I saw the length measurement, knew I had to order the petite. Unless you are at least 5'7", think petite. Still, I did like the look of the fabric (except for the sheerness) and the way it was made. Order knowing the facts.
