A212714 - Susan Graver Liquid Knit Cardigan with Pleating& Empire Waist 3.8 5 15 15
Runs large I ordered my usual SG size, which is a size smaller than most of QVC, and this still ran large. I think it would have been perfect in a smaller size. The fit and drape were just beautiful. 04-29-12
Order Down in a Small Had to return. Normally get a small in all of Susan clothes. 6-8. I'm 5'8" 130 lbs. The Cardigan itself is fine, color good, material so comfy. Just large for a size small. would reorder a XS. nice if it had a tie belt too. 02-23-12
Too Big I was surprised it was too large. I usually order a medium in Susan's style but this one was just too big. Gave it 3 stars because I don't know how the smaller size will fit.. I am assuming it will be great!! BUT I don't like having to PAY to have it returned just to order another one...ugg. 10-09-11
2 Words....LOVE IT!!!!! I agree with other reviewers...perfect and every woman should have one. I got the black and it is beautiful and very flattering on. Will be back for the other 2 colors!! Awesome, awesome jacket!!! 08-17-11
PERFECT! Every woman needs this in her wardrobe! SO FLATTERING and great with everything! 08-04-11
Fantastic top I ordered this top in black and the ocean blue, love them both. Made very well, fabric is wonderful. Now I need to find sg pants in the ocean blue to match the top, any suggestions? Thanks Susan! RC 04-28-11
Great for traveling Bought this for a trip to Australia. It was the perfect topper. worked well over a dress in the evening and even tied in the front for a more casual look with slacks during the day. Fabric packed well,barely took up any room and no problem with wrinkles even after wearing it tied in front! My daughter has developed a fondness for it while home on spring break. Tried to order one for her in a small but it is sold out. Please bring this back. 03-24-11
Awful That's all I can say - this is awful. The fabric is nice - which is the only reason I gave it 2 stars - but the cut is not flattering if you are shorter, and plus-sized. Sleeves way too long - and mine arrived in a wadded up ball, all wrinkled. Too bad - I was looking forward to this top. Back it goes. 03-15-11
Great topper This cardigan is the perfect weight to wear on those spring/fall days when you need something heavier than just a blouse, etc. I love the length and the way it is tapered longer in the front. The first time I wore it I got several compliments, including one from my husband!!!!! It makes me feel very "girly" with how fluid it is. Don't hesitate to try this, and the blue is perfect to wear with jeans. I wanted to order the red, but the size xs/s was sold out. Please make this in more colors and in small sizes. 03-11-11
Not the greatest fit Cute idea but it seemed to look shorter in the back. Do not like this style in the liquid knit material. Had to return. 03-01-11
Hated to send it back, but.... First the pros: The material was luscious, the color was beautiful (I ordered the rose red). The cons: I ordered it in my usual size, but it was too big. I am learning to order a size down in SG, but if it had only been a size issue, I would have kept it as they were sold out. The real problem was, like another reviewer, my cardigan arrived rolled up in a ball. There were some very deep wrinkles in the pleats just below the empire waist. As I was examining it to see if they could be ironed out, I noticed a dark brownish stain on the underside of the pleating, almost like someone had already tried to iron it and the iron left a mineral deposit behind. I called QVC to explain that I would like to try and salvage the cardigan; the helpful customer service rep assured me I could return it if I washed it but still could not get out the stain. So I tried washing it twice, once with a with a stain remover, but alas, I couldn't fix it, so back it went. I gave it 3 stars because if it came back in stock, I would like to order it again as I liked the color and cut of the cardigan. 02-24-11
