A219250 - Liz Claiborne New York Squared Shawl Collar Cardigan
Nice Sweater but snags
This is a nice sweater, but just didn't work. It's very boxy in style, oversized and the knit came with snags already on it. The fabric is super soft and the charcoal/black color was very beautiful. But it will not last. The knit is just too thin and open. It snags, pulls and hangs like a bag. Not flattering. But the worst is the buttons on the collar. the V neck is low, the collar points hit right over your chest and the buttons - well let's just say it's not a good location for them to hit. Going back.
Beautifully styled sweater...unusual and eye catching. Unfortunately the seater is very thin and loosley woven resulting in a very fragile garment. The sweater pulls very easily so I know it won't be long before it moves from my wear to work to wear around the house drawer.Too bad as it really is very pretty.
Great But With Caution
I waited until the price came down a bit on this one, and since I love the style and color (beige), I am keeping it. However, on a couple places--one on the back, the other on the shoulder---the yarn is very thin and will require me using some darn stitches so that it doesn't wear a hole right away. I did not examine it right away so do so and if there are many thin areas, I would send it back. For the price it ought to be flaw free, even at a sale price. I gave it four stars for this reason.
This is without a doubt a beautiful, soft as butter sweater, but it is so delicate it came with snags in it right out of the QVC delivery bag. Seeing how it looked so much like a delicate hand made sweater, and was flawed, I returned it for something I wouldn't be afraid to wear.
The buttons on the collar fall right where you don't want them to. Too bad
Very Very nice
I just received this sweater and I love it !!! I was hesitant about the purchase because of the first 2 reviews but took the plunge and bought it. I am glad I made the purchase even though I did not need another outer wear garment. The sweater is not heavy, it is a light knit, almost a crochet in the body of the garment itself. It is beautiful and very classey. The cream looks like a light blue in the body and a nice cream neutral on the collar, hem and as a sleeve detail. This can be worn casual or to the office as a cardigan over a nice tee or blouse with slacks. I love this sweater and again, I am glad that I purchased it.
I have to disagree with other reviewers here. I purchased this sweater in both color options and am very pleased with both. The sweaters are not boxy at all, they are less fitted than some, but still skim the body. They are a wonderful tunic length, just right for wearing with leggings. They are a lighter weight sweater which makes them great for layering and the yarn used is sooooooooooo soft. They are just beautiful sweaters, both of them. The details make them very stylish.
I hate to disagree with the other reviewers of this sweater. It is classy and has quickly become one of my favorites. I got the cream and it is beautiful. The detail on the sweater of one button on each of the shawl collar ends emphasizes the overall appearance of richness and sophisticaton. The sweater is soft (not itchy) and I get compliments very time I wear it. It can be paired with black or grey and looks amazing. I guess in retrospect I am glad these other ladies didn't like it b/c I bought it at a tremendous value. Don't think twice; this sweater is a winner. It can be dressed up or casual in jeans. I love it - thank you Liz for such great design.
Don't understand the negative review. I almost didn't order this due to the other review but decided to go ahead since I had an easy pay on request available...I am so glad I ordered this sweater in the antique ivory heather.... It fits me perfect;y - not at all boxy, skims the body beautifully. So very soft and feather light weight...I love this! Asked my hubby's opinion and his opinion was positive as well...I will order the charcoal heather ASAP.....couldn't be happier with my purchase!
I normally like Liz Claiborne products but not this time. The sweater was huge even though I ordered my normal size. The fit was unattactive and boxy. Packing it up and returning it today.
