Liz Claiborne New York Cardigan with Crochet Neckline
I didn't experience any sizing issues with my Medium cardigan in the Aquarium Green. I'm 5'9, 145 lbs, DD and usually wear a size 10. The medium in this fits me about as shown on the model in the pictures, maybe a tad bigger. The fabric isn't super soft, but it's not scratchy or uncomfortable either. It has a nice ease to it and washes well. The crochet neckline does get a bit out of shape, but it is nothing really notice-able. The weight is perfect for spring/fall or cooler summer days. I wear mine with a plain white scoopneck tank underneath it and leave the bottom couple buttons undone. It's cute with skinny jeans and tailored capris. It would look cute with a business type skirt too. I'm thinking of ordering another color.
Not true to size
I purchased two but they are not true to size and do not fit. I am so disappointed.....
PRETTY, BUT NOT SOFT.
I got this cardigan in the ivory and black; and, it is quite pretty, but not as soft as I hoped. The fabric feels more like acrylic to me. And, the cream/ivory has a yellowish hue to it.
Nonetheless, I am keeping it, because I like the design and the length of it.
It is, just, refreshing to find a long cardigan with a crew neck and 3/4 sleeves! Besides, the sweater is thin, so when I wear a TRUE light cream top underneath it the yellowish hue dissapears!
Moreover, I wear black almost all of the time, so the black crochet detail in the cardigan will go well with 90% of all of my clothes!
All in all, not a bad purchase.
BTW. I would not recommend this sweater to any one who is not at least 5' 4" or taller, because it will be too long in proportion to the rest of her body.
When I saw this sweater in the black and white option, I just had to have it. It really is very pretty. The fit is great but the length is a little long. I plan to wear it with a cream colored tank underneath. I think Liz Claiborne is a great line, I love most everything they have.
Great Cardigan with lovely neckline
Bought Aquarium Green, size small & I love it! I'm 5'8", 140-145 lbs. and the small fit perfectly. Color is the prettiest shade of green, but not turquoise. Love easy pay!
I didn't have a problem with the fit of this cardigan at all. It is true to size for me. I wear a Med. in D&C and that is what I ordered. I'm a size 10, 34 D. At 5-5 I like the length just fine. I carry my wt. through the middle, so like that it is longer and have good "behind" coverage. Wouldn't say it was too long, maybe with a maxi, but I don't wear those anyway. I thought the color was more aqua when I ordered it, but is actually more green. Is still a pretty color though. I like the 3/4 sleeves as that is all I buy. Is not a heavy material and the crochet is so pretty with a larger hook&eye on top, so don't have a problem with the neckline. Will enjoy my lunchtime special buy!
Fit is not good
I thought the cream/black combo would be an elegant addition to my wardrobe..wrong!
The neckline doesn't lay nice and I couldn't figure out the best tank to wear under it since I don't button my cardigans. I tried a round neck, v-neck and boat neck. Nothing looked good. Back it goes.
Lovely in the Ivory
I had to have the ivory sweater with the black collar as soon as I saw it! Luckily I had patience and it went on clearance. Very nice fabric and fit. I am 5'2" and normally wear a medium and it is true to size. This is my first Liz purchase from QVC but have always been a big Liz fan. Can't wait to belt it and wear it with black pants.
Could wear this every day
For the record it has been a long, long, long time since I bought any clothing on QVC. The fit is usually wrong and overall not worth it. Then there is this sweater! Oh My! Is this the cat's meow! I get so many compliments each time I wear it and I've only had it a week. I am 5'6" and the length is ideal! Every sweater should come in this length, that is, for a woman like me who is very slender with a long torso. When cardigans end near or at the top of the hip, they are disastrous on this body. I have had to resort to "boyfriend" sweaters/cardis to get the length I need. Not with this one, it's just perfect, the color is a dream for someone who mostly wears neutrals and blacks. (I bought the Aquarium Green). It gives me just that element of summery freshness that wakes up the rest of my wardrobe. I'd take a million of these. I can only say that no one is more surprised than I to be so excited since I won't even tune in a QVC Fashion Day anymore, nor have I for years, due to the "blue light special" appearance of most of the styles & fabrics. This one beats everything I own.
The reason I recommended the WEN in each size below is largely if it weren't for WEN, we'd probably be done shopping the Q.
Love the black and ecru
This is a stunning look. I agree that the sweater is too long, but happily I bought it for a short black dress and the length looks fine and the black trim makes the outfit. It will be okay with pants too. With a maxi dress it looks schlumpy and over sized. I am a plus size.
I love Liz Claiborne, and this cardigan is beautiful, but it is way to long! I am 5'7 and I wear a large. This Cardigan came down below the top of my leg??? It fit more like a beach cover up than a cardigan. I really do not like the long lengthen unless I am buying a tunic. I really wish this cardigan was a true cardigan lengthen, because it really is beautiful. I am very disappointed that I can not keep this. I love crochet and was really looking forward to wearing this item :((
