Susan Graver Brushed French Terry Hooded Top w/Side Pockets
I have two of these and I love them both. They are fun to wear and I think they are flattering - pockets and all. They are soft and launder well - I hang to dry. My first one of these is well over a year old and still looks new. I would like some more colors!
I did stitch the pockets in the middle to form a gather and it is much more flattering in the hip area. They no longer stick out. Other than that I really like it and ordered another. Please make this in black and maybe make the pockets flatter on the hip area.
Comfy but Voluminous
I agree with some of the reviewers who said this top was much too wide to be flattering. On the plus side, i have kept it because it is soooo soft and comfy and good quality. I plan to wear this at home, but i do sew, so im considering taking in the side seams a bit to make it a little slimmer. I do get that this is the style...i have another top in this stye, but something about this one just makes it too much fabric.
Notice the pockets
This is a well-made, comfy garment that is just adorable; however, I unfortunately am sending it back. It is difficult to tell from the pictures, but the placement of the pockets visually extends the width of the hips and was not flattering on me at all. Also, the inside of the fabric is soft and fleecy but is a little warmer than I expected. But the tie and the buttons are very nice.
This top was awful it looked like a tent on. Where the pockets hit right on the hips was very unflattering .I love Susan Graver line...but not this top.
Real smock shape, just love it
I bought this as a dog-walking spring top... But I wear it indoors rather than upping the heat, I wear it driving around on errands, and yes, I wear it walking the dogs. I have the grey and the navy, love the contrasting ribbons. Unlike some of the reviewers I DO have hip issues and the pockets are great. I always have my cell phone with me and some I.D. and these pockets are sort of funky so they look interesting and not like inadvertent padding. Love the top. Bought a backup grey to keep in my car for those changes in the weather. I live in a university town and a graduate student down the street had me get a grey one for her. She sewed a college patch on the arm.....
4 STARS ONLY BECAUSE OF HOOD
Dear Susan, please make this top EXACTLY how it is only WITHOUT THE HOOD! I'm 63 and I find the top very comfortable but feel silly wearing a hood on my back. That's for teenagers, not for women who shop QVC. Hope you read this and perhaps change out the hood. By the way shoppers, I ordered a size down and the pockets do not make me look bigger. Since it's an A-line style, the coverage for the stomach is great, therefore; you do not need to stick with your same size. Hope this helps in deciding to order.
Want to wear it 24/7!!
Of the many pieces of clothing I've ordered from QVC, this top is my new best friend and I will mourn the day when it gets too warm to wear it and I have to wait for autumn.
cute cute cute!!
Sooo comfy and sooo cute! May have to order another next payday!!
Great casual top!
This is one comfortable, casual top! I was a little afraid it might be too hot because it said brushed french terry, and I am always hot, but it is not a heavy terry. I ordered the heathered oatmeal and wear it with my jeans all the time. Friends ask where I got it, because it is SO cute. I ordered a medium and think it fits true to size. I love the pockets, but my hips are not my problem area. I can't wait to try it in other colors.
Its For Comfort
The people who gave this hooded Terry a bad review I don't think realized it's for comfort I love mine other friends that have seen it ask me where I got it! I just love the lose fit could wear it all the time.
I have other cloths to wear that are for showing my figure in the best light they can this is for comfort and I just love it!
Avoid if you have hips
The pockets hit at the hips and are sewn in between panels so they cannot lay flat much less be removed. Tried to fix pocket issue, so I tacked the pockets down by taking in a pleat on each side of the pocket. Ok, which is why I gave it a 2 star However, still emphasized the hips. Not sure what Susan was thinking on this one. Really isn't for anyone who is sensitive about their hips and I am. Also, ordered in my regular size and it was too big. Maybe a smaller size with the pockets sewn down would have been better?
