Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheila-in-MI Love this sweater!
While I wouldn't use this sweater for a dressy special event, I love it for casual wear when I want something that is a step above a plain solid cardigan. I have it in three colors (ivory, coral and turquoise), and have used them a number of times this summer. They are really cute over summer dresses, or with bermuda shorts/jeans, because the embellishment adds a definite feminine flair. The beading isn't flashy or glittery; it just adds an interesting little pop to the look of a basic cardigan, like a splash of clear icy crystals and buttons to match. I haven't had any problem with loose beads. The fabric is soft and silky, light perfect weight for summer evenings, and nice for casual business wear. Overall, it is just a fun, girlish, uniquely casual sweater that is a nice addition to my wardrobe. I am very happy with these!!

While I had no problem with beads falling off I did not recognize my garment from the way it was after it was washed. It had lost all body and felt and looked like a dishrag ready for the charity bag which is exactly where I put it. I still have the black one but have not worn it yet nor do I want to.

I rarely write a negative review - but don't buy this. The beads were falling off as I opened the packaging. The beads appear to be a cheap clear plastic on the ivory one. Material very thin. Not worth the price.

Sweater looks beautiful. BUT beads fell off the very first day I wore it. Beading is not secured on underside. I had to remove beads from otherside to fill in. I really should have sent it back but I had bought two of her blouses that matched sweater.
Rated 2 out of 5 by tweepy123 So very disappointed!
I ordered this sweater and because it was so dressy, didn't wear it for several weeks. Then when I finally did, several of the 'crystals' were coming loose/off within HOURS of putting it on. I had to resew several of them and I finally figured out why they HAD to give you extra...they probably knew the stones wouldn't stay attached. Just not a good buy...I usually have only good things to say about Susan's clothes, but NOT this garment.

I have this sweater in tan and off white and will purchase a black one next. I wore it for the first time yesterday and loved the fit and the way it feels. I actually caught myself touching the sleeve. Love that it is 3/4 sleeve so I don't have to push it up. Runs true to size for a plus size. It very pretty. Love Susan Graver.
Rated 1 out of 5 by diamondscribe Beads Fall Off
I wish this sweater worked. I like the knit fabric - its dressier and has just a bit of a sheen like a silk knit. The size I ordered fit great and I love the extra length. The colors I ordered - beige and lime were beautiful colors. So, you can see why it pains me to give what could have been a great item only 1 star. But I have to because the bead work is done so poorly on these sweaters. I think a person would need more than just the tiny bag of a few extra beads that come with the sweater at the rate the embellishment falls off. I pulled one sweater out of the bag and noticed a long string hanging loose. Found the missing bead in the bottom of the plastic bag the garment came in. It arrived that way. The other sweater lost a bead within and hour of wear. I looked at the back stitching to see how to fix them and it appears that the threads were never knotted off - just slid under another thread to hold. Susan, bring these back after you get another manufacturer - one that knots their bead work.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jrose50 Nice fabric
I bought two of these, one black, one taupe. The quality of the material is great, very comfy. I did return them though because of two things. They run large, so I recommend you size down. And the emblishments are showy. I bought them for around town, but think they are a bit "too much" in the bling department. But they would be lovely dressed up with slacks. Don't hesitate if you need something dressy, this will fill the bill!
