Isaac Mizrahi Live! Placed Print Dolman Sleeve Sweater
Three stars... but a good 3 stars.
On the one hand - I love a bonkers floral and no one but Issac is doing it right now. The colors are gorgeous and the print is slightly slimming, although I'm thinking it's cinched up on the photo of the model. The fabric is nice and soft.
Where did the other two stars go? First, as another reviewer mentioned, the color is only on the outside of the garment, the inside is white. This would be irrelevant except that the first time I wore it the band-style collar started rolling down slightly and showing the white. Not a good look.
The other star is a little more subjective. The fit isn't really flattering. I'm 5'3 and a size 22 and usually wear a QVC 1X (I'm young and prefer things fit close to the body). This just fit a little schlumpy and the slightly bateau neckline doesn't do me any favors. This might not be true for you though, so take this comment with a grain of salt.
All of that said - I adore the print, got lots of compliments when I wore the shirt on its own, and plan to try and make myself like it more by working out what cardigans to wear it with.
Beautiful Color and Illusion
I bought the coral/orange combo with great hesitation; for me, QVC fits seems boxy and over-sized.
This too is a bit boxy BUT it works because the pattern creates an illusion of a fit/curve. The feel of the knit is nice too. I like the length; perfect.
I understand that QVC fits are based on an older demographic and that sadly, most of us tend to gain weight as we age. But once again, I request that these master designers create at least some clothes for those of us who are older and who are working hard to keep those extra pounds off.
My first IM item was a total bust so I almost didn't try again. I have had mine for 3 months and wear it weekly. It still looks brand new after many washings (I put in washer and dryer!) so if you're concerned about the saturation longevity due to printing - don't be. Wish it came in yellow or green; I'm not a blue girl and I'd love another! Based on my experience with this top I waded in for the TSV w/ matching tank (also fabulous) and am ordering some shoes today. I love Isaac"s prints - so feminine and the detailing is very impressive for the price. Thank you!
Pretty piece. Flower placement is flattering. I wish it were a tad longer. I'm 5'7". Not much of a dolman sleeve. Overall, it is nice and I think I will keep it.
I ordered the blue and now I am going back for the coral. The sweater matches perfect with the Coral TSV from Issac the sweater does run a little big and I wish it was a little longer.
Gave two stars because it is a very pretty design, BUT the design is printed
on the fabric, not woven!
Have no idea if the colors and design would remain true after washing,
but for the price, I'm not interested in finding out.
I'm not big on floral prints in general, but when I saw this, I thought it was just perfectly done. The pansy watercolor look with Isaac positioning them sparsely to flatter your shape is amazing!!! I'm really impressed with Isaac's sweater material - light, stretchy, holds its shape. Love the boatneck and fit of the sweater, too. Loved the Belize Blue so much that now I'm back for the Coral Pink.
So Feminine--We Need More Florals
Beautiful in every way and a great alternative to a T-shirt. This makes my shoulders look wider and fits a 5'4" woman perfectly. Would you consider making more gauzy or chiffon-like florals that would fall just below the knee and not have tons and tons of material? Something flouncy at the bottom and sleek at the waist and thighs. Your florals are beautiful. Isaac you are an artist.
I got this in the blue, and even though the color was beautiful, the way the flowers looked on the sweater looked cheap. I usually love all my Isaac items, this one missed the mark.
First Isaac Mizrahi
This is my first Isaac piece. When I pulled it out it looked very boxy. I put it on and was pleasantly surprised. It really is flattering. It is very slimming. I love the design. I purchased a size medium and it is true to size.
Blue is stunning
I'm loving the colors in the blue top. I always love a dolman sleeve and this is no exception. The cut and flower detail are so slimming. It fits true to size. Nice lightweight summer sweater made with high quality materials.
Isaac The Artist !
I purchased both colors in this beautiful top. Isaac you are not only a designer..you are an Artist! The pansy colors are gorgeous. BTW because of the neckline, I found that you can wear the top backwards. This way if you are wearing a jacket or solid color cardigan over it you can see the spray of pansys. Just lovely. Thank you Isaac.
