Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Long Sleeve Cardigan
Beautiful sweater. The fit is great. It hangs beautifully. Made with quality. I recommend this sweater to anyone!
Received this sweater in size xl in lilac and was delighted. Unfortunately, when I tried it on with a white long sleeve blouse it was too big on me and color is all sold out. Too expensive to bring to tailor. Very good buy and would definitely recommend.
Love this designer's dedication to presenting classic garments with outstanding fabrics & knits; they seem current yet timeless--just so this cardigan. There is some substance to the knit--I love the 'double needle' heft and smooth finish to sleeve edge & bottom of the
sweater--just this detail makes it feel elevated from the usual. With proper care, this garment could last and please for a long while.
I too ordered this in the Lilac in my regular size Large. It doesn't run big, it's supposed to fit loosely and I don't want it tight over a blouse or sweater. SO pretty on and a nice color for those gray wintery days. Will wear with the ivory button blouse from Louis with gray slacks to work and over a belted LBD with black boots and I am sure a ton of other things.
A couple of long necklaces and bang, out the door. It might be a little itchy because of the wool, but since this is going to be a winter sweater, I'd have sleeves on underneath anyway. It's just a beautifully made piece and I am very pleased. I may have to go back for the charcoal!!!
I am very impressed with this cardigan. I love the fabric, detailing, and deep color in charcoal gray. It is not a lightweight cardigan, but not too heavy either. I usually take a medium and this fit me perfectly. I also like the neckline and the generous length. I have too many short varieties in my closet.However, some petite women might have an issue with it. I would love to see more colors; unfortunately the purple is not available in my size.
Thank you for such a beautiful addition to fall & winter. Being from Minnesota, I am certain to wear it alot!
I will say this is the best cardigan that I have ever purchased!! I had to return the first one that I ordered and went down a size because it runs larger than the QVC measurements. It is perfect weight and length! The lilac color is beautiful! I would love to see this in dark brown, dark rust, and dark indigo colors. This is so soft and nicely made. THANK YOU Mr. Dell'Olio!
A Handsome-Looking (and Lovely) Cardigan
I chose this sweater in lilac, and it magnificently complements the Linea lilac blouse (A237555), which is so satisfying in multiple ways. It is thrilling for me to have a gorgeous pulled-together look, and Louis Dell'Olio has done all the hard work for me. As for the purported 'itch' factor of the sweater, the slightly rougher (than Whisper Knit) texture is fine with me. Actually, the sweater is quite comfortable on. Finished off with my purple pearls, this Linea outfit is a striking one. Very ladylike.
LOVE this classic cardigan. Agree that it may be a little scratchy next to bare skin, but it is fabulous, and not at all scratchy, with Louis's silk-like blouses in matching colors. I purchased both colors and love the look. Would support additional colors for next year. Thank you, Louis!
Bought both colors!
Love, love, LOVE this sweater! Whenever Louis has a cardigan in his show, I run for the phone or my computer. I bought this in both colors, thinking I'd wear it with jeans for a casual look. The sweaters work that way, but I was surprised how classy they look with one of Louis's turtlenecks and a pencil skirt with tights! Amazing! Please, more colors! I'll buy them all! I'm between an xl and a 1x. I bought 1x and it works, but I could have gone to xl in this sweater.
Beautiful Color but too scratchy
I love Louis' clothing and have MANY of his pieces. His cardigans and tanks are part of my daily wear to work wardrobe.
This sweater has a flattering, long length for this plus sized person. The color is beautiful. But I found it so scratchy and itchy, that I had to return it. Maybe my skin is too sensitive but it is the rare Linea piece that I sent back.
I received my cardigan in graphite today, and immediately placed a wait list order for the lilac. It's a wonderful sweater, and I only wish that it was available in other colors, because I would order it again & again. Perfect...perfect....perfect cardigan!!!
As soon as I took it out of the bag and touched it I didn't like the way it felt. It felt scratchy and itcy. I tried it on, but took it off immediately. Pretty color lilac and style, but did not like the material at all.
