A221154 - George Simonton Open Front Cardigan w/Pleat Detail
PLEASE MAKE MORE
I wore this today (it's finally Spring in the NE).
It was perfect for the weather outside. I ordered
a Small in Wheat which is a little
too large so my second order was for the
Black in XS. Much better fit. I wish I had
ordered the pink as well but it appears to
have sold out. I love the cut and feel of this
cardigan. I wore it with jeans today and it
After reading the reviews and viewing the product video, I waited with great excitement for the UPS man to show up with this cardigan. When it arrived, I was immediately unimpressed with how it looked out of the package.....very wrinkled. Upon trying it on, it appears too large and I didn't like the way the collar turns out showing the inner hem. The fabric is thin and certainly not what I would consider 'cardigan' weight. For me this item is not worth the money, going back tomorrow.
Omg I LOVE this
Oh PLEASE PLEASE bring more back! This is the best Simonton purchase I've ever made, and I've made LOTS over the years. I bought this in the wheat color. I'm wearing it over black yoga pants and a black camisole on Thanksgiving Day with black boots. Lots of comfort stretch for some over indulgence, but this cardigan adds the class.
Perfect for every season
I purchased this cardigan in black in medium, which is my size in George Simonton. It is exactly what I was looking for. This cardigan is a light to medium weight and can be worn in every season as a topper. It drapes beautifully and has perfect coverage on the back. Of course the quality is impeccable. I'm thinking about the other colors..
Not A Keeper
I like the fabric and the neckline of this cardigan but that's all. When trying on an extremely wrinkled garment, it's hard to see how it might look in better condition. Back it goes.
Beautiful and soft
I just got the Wheat and went back to order the Blush (which they finally had in my size.) Love the fact that this is made with rayon and spandex rather than polyester and spandex. This is perfect for air conditioned summer school classrooms and cool evenings in our Pacific paradise.
Not For Me
I don't know what happened with this cardigan, but I really dislike the fabric. It feels very cheap and almost "plastic" to me. Also, the wheat color does not match the wheat color of George's crystal knit crop pants. Not even close, and I bought the cardigan to go with the pants. I'm returning this one, although I normally love everything I've purchased by George Simonton. I agree with other reviewers, this cardigan was made for tall women with long arms. I'm 5'6" and the large size drowns me. Sorry, but this cardigan is just not for me.
Weighty fabric - lovely drape
This is a lovely jacket, but as another reviewed noted - it is definitely not for the short woman. I'm barely 5 feet and this looks like a goth bat cape on me. It would be a lovely piece on a taller woman, but it's not for me. Another one on the returns list.
This is the first review I've written on anything but this cardigan is beautiful in style and fit. I usually wear a medium, but since it was a relaxed fit I ordered size small. Perfect ! And I look like I lost 10 lbs. Would love to see more colors.
I love this cardigan.. It far exceeded my expectations. The fabric is soft and flowy, not heavy at all. The fit is flattering and just skims the body. The garment made me look thinner, which is always a good thing. I ordered the wheat color and it is just a beautiful shade. Going to order the black as well. Get one, you won't be sorry!
LOVE this Cardi!!!!!
This was far beyond my expectations! I am absolutely in love with everything about this top - the blush color is amazing, the fit and feel divine. It's lightweight enough to wear into the summer but isn't flimsy and sheer. I just love it. So, so glad I ordered it!!
George Has My Number #
A221154. So tickled with this cardigan (in wheat) in size small. Have a shrug in a similar color but way different fabrication from Weekenders that is my wardrobe staple. George's cardigan is lighter in weight and color, longer in length, and therefore more versatile. At <5 feet I still find this cardigan to be a flattering length. But I can understand where someone taller may find it too short. Meanwhile the sleeves are inordinately long (IMO), but I think they are sufficiently snug to stay pushed up.
