Rated 5 out of 5 by Bger Purchased the Bold Fuchsia and Intense Iris
I love wearing vests all year around. . .especially in the workplace, in the summertime with the AC on it's too cool and in the winter vests add just a bit of warmth. Vests can be worn dressed up or down. . .and the options are limitless. I received the vests last evening and am wearing the Bold Fuchsia as a nice pop of color with a black Susan Graver top, Denim & Co. black jeans, and boots. This morning I was greeted by coworker with a, "hey, I like that vest. . .nice and cheery!" I ordered both in 1X to allow for more of a cinch at the waist and for a little bit of flare and it's the perfect effect I wanted. The armholes will allow me to wear with my dolman tops to show off their sleeve feature and I like the silver hardware as they complement the silver buckles of my boots. Also, the vests will be worn to Church as the colors where chosen as two liturgical colors within the Church year for Advent and Lent.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PinkDogwood pricey but really nice
Bought this vest in the iris (purple) color and love it, size small. This is so darn cute on!!! Love the pockets too, placed just right. Could wear this one now in fact with a tank under it, would not be too warm.
I do think it's pricey for what it is but I am SO into vests this season - I've purchased a ton of them this spring/summer. Many are LCNY too, different styles. All fit great, look classy/sporty.
I do recommend this one, stay true to size.

Rec'd this yesterday in the Sea Breeze, a lovely color for Summer and I ordered a M as I always size down with SG...fit perfectly and looks nice...and slimming!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vickie7 Beautiful, great fit, flattering!!
This vest is Perfect!! I bought my first one in purple, just received my second one in Bright Fuchsia! I prefer to cover my hips, so this vest works very well. PLEASE make this in more colors. I want to order the aqua, but my size is sold out. Ladies, order this vest, you'll love it too!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Indiana Jane Really Great Top/Vest
Ordered the Sea Breeze in XL which is my size and is a perfect fit. I really wanted the white but it was gone in my size. Thrilled I ordered SBreeze since it is such a lovely color and will go with everything. Love the material and the long length which can go over every length I have. Wonderful for boating and cool evenings in the summer and fall. Good Buy!

I bought this vest in white. I'm 5'5'' and wear a small. The fabric is very soft and I like the silver hardware. I agree with the other comments about the large armholes. I do sew and was able to take in the side seams a bit to make the fit much better. I wear it with a striped, navy/white tank and navy slim pants. The look is classic!
I would love to see this vest in red, navy, and black!
Rated 3 out of 5 by valleybadgirls Too Long for us shorties
I am only 5'3" and this vest was way too long-bodied on me. I also wishes that the tie around the middle could have been loosened so that it would be possible to have it just hang straight down. I would undoubtedly not tie it closed anyway, so that means when I put it on and it's open it hangs kind of funny.
I liked a lot of the design features, but this one just isn't for me.
Rated 2 out of 5 by mady Bad design
The ties in front do not go around the body, so you can only cinch the front . The elastic in back is worthless and does not cinch enough. Design would have been better if ties went around the body. Most other vests/jackets do this for a good reason. Color, sea breeze, was nice and material was very nice. That is why I gave it 2 stars. Size small was too big at arm holes and material flopped there which looked terrible.

Really like this vest. I got it in the white so I can wear it with anything. Fits true to size. I am a size 6-8 and got the xs. Very happy with this purchase.
Rated 2 out of 5 by mselisa Not a good fit at all..
This looked horrible on me. I did like the color (an aqua blue/green color) and the fabric is very soft and comfortable, also the draw string design is nice. But I got my size small and the hold middle section around my tummy and hips was unflattering and a close to the body fit on me because of the funny wide elastic waist around the middle. It does have stretch so its not tight, but it made me look so much bigger when I am trying to hide my middle section. Looked nothing like it does on the model in the picture going straight down and long, or on Susan. I carry my weight in the middle. Also, the armholes are really big and wide and were sticking out in front, looked really funny. Going up a size to a medium would mean way too big in the chest and armholes area, but more loose room in the stomach and hip areas, maybe a little longer in length too. I also didn't like the collar at all, looked horrible folded down and I don't like it kept up. Returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fxyldy COZY, COMFORTABLE, FAB FIT...
...Perfect for those slightly cool days/nights indoors and outdoors, when I need just a little coverage for warmth; for that matter -- Susan Graver's French Terry Vest is an anytime to add a little fashion. I am very pleased with the fit, the material, the Iris color in large which I ordered one for me and one for a friend. The zip-front slides easily, i.e., no fiddling nor nuisance getting the zipper clip to fit into its notch, as I have had with a few zip-ups over the years. The drawstring waist adds a drawn-in look for more fashion and comfort and the wisp of a stand-up color adds an interesting touch. Without sleeves, I can wear this Zip Front Vest over patterned, solid color blouses, tunics, dresses, et al. Classy look all around and easy-care with washer/dryer cleaning. Thanks, Susan, this is a winner/keeper!!!
