Susan Graver Stretch Velvet Ruched 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan & Tank Set
I'm a newcomer, and believe I finally found my Susan Graver 'size', but not in this set. I originally ordered the XL.. the tank was perfect but the jacket was oversized. Sent it back and ordered the L... the tank was small but the jacket was perfect for me. Both went back. I would have put this together if I could order the jacket and tank separately. That's just the way it fit ME. It is a really nice set, made well, and I'm sure for many people it would fit perfectly. FYI - the gray color is more of a green-ish gray to me and not a silver-gray.
I wanted to like this so much and it is beautiful. I ordered it in gray for a trip to New York City and just received it. I always wear a solid M in Susan's clothing, and the jacket was perfect. In fact, it was just a tad big in the shoulders, but I felt like the tank was strangling me. I knew just holding it up that it was going to be small, but tried it on anyway. It fit more like Spanx than some of the Spanx I've bought. The armpits were very tight and it was quite short - barely below my waist. The tank with the the last twin set I bought from Susan had such large arm holes, I can't wear it without the jacket, but that's okay. I'm sorry to say that I have to send this back. It makes me sad.
Gorgeous Cardigan and Tank Set
I ordered this in grey and I am planning on ordering it in the wine, navy and teal. It is gorgeous. Very well made. I have received countless compliments on this cardigan. You can dress it up or dress it down. You can wear the cardigan with the tank or with a different top and you can wear the tank with the cardigan, alone or with a different top. The wine would look great for Valentines Day. I wish Susan Graver would make it in chocolate and deep purple.
This is such a great set. The velvet is nice & soft & both tank & cardigan fit true to size. A great combination that can be dressed up or down. Looks great with Susan's velvet pants....
Ordered in the Large, loved the look but too big for me. Decided on a refund as was afraid the smaller one wouldn't give me the length I would need in the cardigan, but doesn't take away from what a beautiful set this is.
I like this top very much, but because I am petite, I usually find Susan's scoop necks and tanks to be too low cut for my frame. With this tank, I was able to wear the tank backwards. Since I would not remove the jacket, the higher back worn in front solved my problem. I would like to see Susan make at least some tops in petite, especially those with long sleeves or tunics.
I just wore this set in the burgundy to a holiday cocktail reception. Got so many compliments and I felt so festive and classy wearing it. The lines are very flattering. Velvet is beautiful. Color is very rich. Pair with a strand of pearls and you have stunning look. Thanks Susan!
I love this set! Very elegant!
I purchased this set in the green to wear to a holiday event this week where I had emcee responsibilities. I added some fabulous glittery jewelry to it (necklace, bracelet and earrings) and it was a hit! I had so many compliments on how pretty the set was and the color. For me, it fit like a charm and I wear a 1X. The tank is cut well to where your underarms are covered (hard to find!) and the jacket hung well on me and I love the 3/4 sleeves so as not to get too hot! Great job, Susan! I think I need to order the gray one now!
Nap of Fabric
I learned in 6th Grade homemaking/sewing class to cut fabric WITH the nap. Every time you run your hands down this outfit, it crushes the nap, changes the color of the outfit and feels rough and not smooth like velvet should feel. This is a cheap way to save fabric and I am very disappointed that Susan would accept such poor workmanship from her vendors. There is too much fabric in the front of the jacket also, adding pounds to your figure.
Sizing is totally off!
This is similar in style to numerous Susan Graver sets I have purchased and happily wear. But this tank barely fit over my head. I looked like a sausage!! Didn't even try the cardigan. Back it goes.
I purchased the black set and six gore skirt in black also in teal
The teal went back felt the green was too much all together but the
black was not only classy but royal. Don't get me wrong teal green was
more an emerald green and wasn't my color.
I wore the black set for my Thanksgiving
diner party and words can not explain how well they fit. I am 5'6" got large, always go down a size on SG style. I am a full woman from top to bottom, looked like a million bucks with this outfit and was comfortable all day.
God Bless to all this beautiful season.
Does not hang well
Just does not hang well off the body. Perhaps if it were lined or heavier fabric. Good concept not well executed. Returned.
