Susan Graver Liquid Knit Cardigan and Tank Set with Ruched Sleeves
Cardigan/Tank set, LOVE THIS
I ordered this in 2 colors, black and purple (Kansas State fan). I am an art teacher and this will be very comfy to work in plus it looks professional. It fit very well and I like the ruched sleeves, a nice femine touch. This will be great to throw on in he morning before school. I don't have to think about what to wear, I will look just fine with this. I love her fabrics, they are just so comfortable to wear all day.
I ordered this in the medium. I typically wear a size 12, and the medium fits very nicely. It is close enough to the body that the tank is not baggy, but it doesn't cling to the parts I don't want it to cling to.
My personal peculiarity is that I HATE 3/4 length sleeves. For some reason I just don't like the feeling of a sleeve that ends just past the elbow. However, with the ruching on these sleeves I can easy push them above my elbow and the elastic means that they stay put and I don't have to keep shoving them back up.
I believe I will purchase other cardi/tank sets from Susan Graver in other styles and colors so that I can mix them up together.
Dress Up PJs ?
Sooooo comfortable! Feels like I'm wearing PJs but looks very polished. Great set for work or a special evening out too. I'm between L and XL in QVC items but usually go down in liquid knit. I got the large; it's a little roomy and covers lumps and bumps well. Coming back for more colors...
Wore only once
I thought this would be good for the office and I found that it just wasn't that flattering on. It is very thin. I bought it because I wanted something other than cotton or a cotton blend that wrinkles thoughout the day This doesn't wrinkle, but it looks inexpensive..
Poor Quality Seams
I love Susan Graver's designs. However this set is hardly worth the cost. The fabric feels and looks cheap, and there are strings hanging from the unfinished seams after only one wash on gentle and being hung to dry. Also, mine arrived with a spot on the front of the jacket which would not come out in the wash, even when previously treated. Should have been sold as an "as is." The design is great, and the color is a great neutral. I think I can speak for many women out there when I suggest better quality even if the price needs to be a bit higher. I don't mind paying for a well-made piece. I am sorry to have to return this item.
love this it's true to size great fabric and excellent quality
Love the colors and the fit.
I have enjoyed this cardigan set in many colors. Nothing takes me from one event to another more than this. Thank you, Susan for designing such beautiful fashions.
liquid knit tank set
I purchased this set in 2x wheat. I like these sets because of the versatility. You can wear the Cardigan with other tops or sleeveless dresses and the tank can be worn under other sweaters or jackets. I normally dont wear tanks alone because my arms arent as firm as I would like. I am very pleased with this purchase and may go back for another color.
Disappointed with fit
I am a big fan of Susan's liquid knit...more than half of the clothes in my closet are Susan's.; but I was not happy at all with the the way the top layed at the bustline...there was a huge gap and it just flopped over...poorly made, I thought. I returned both colors I purchased.
Love this - need in orange
Have in black and it is a great piece. I love the ruched sleeves in particular and that it is not heavy. I really, really want a set in orange to match the maxi skirt with the orange flowers and animal print. Please Susan do a set with the ruching in orange.
This set is really nice for the price. I got the gray which is a very neutral shade. I would have given this five stars if it came in petite because it is a little too long on me.
Just okay, love the color.
I'm a big Susan Graver fan, particularly I'm a fan of her liquid knit. This is the very thin, flimsy, version of the liquid knit that does wrinkle much easier than the heavier liquid knit. If this was not a two piece set I'd have sent it back because you NEED the cardigan over this tank, or you'll be showing the world everything. Even with the cardigan over the tank bra straps are still visible on the back(hate that). So, I'm keeping it because, I got the burnt orange color, which I think is sold out now. The color is a perfect match for a skirt that I love but didn't really have a top that matched it perfectly. So, it matches my skirt like I hoped. The fit is true to size, as usual with Susan's garments. So, while I'm keeping it. I feel it pertinent to say, I just don't feel that this set is of the excellent quality that I've come to expect from Susan Graver's liquid knit. I hope this isn't the direction this brand, and material are headed. I LOVE the heavier liquid knit, Susan. I hope you are listening. ( I would NEVER wear a dress made of the knit that this set is made of, way too thin, flimsy, and cheap looking. And, it wrinkles, ugh)
