Susan Graver Fleece Knit Embroidered Swing Jacket
Chilly Day Chic
I attended a really important event. Weather was chilly. I needed a coat to pop over a liquid knit suit. I wanted the right length to cover the suit, but not too long. I needed to make a positive impression, and no added bulk. This coat saved the day. I ordered down one size and the fit is perfect. I bought the purple. I want another color, maybe orange!
Runs wayyyy large
Dropped this to 4 stars because of the sizing being so much larger than the normal jackets. This jacket is beautifully constructed. But it runs really big. I normally take an extra large and had to return it for the large. It is not here yet, but I'm sure it will be fine. My daughter, who is quite hippy and normally gets an XL because of this, got the XL and that had to be returned for the medium. She is smaller through the shoulders. So....whatever size you normally get in Susan Graver jackets, drop down one size for this one. Other than that, you will definitely be happy with the jacket.
Beautiful! WOW! Ready to order a different color!
Purchased this beautiful jacket in cranberry for my trip to Southern California duing the Christmas holidays. Great choice for the CA weather. Unfortunately, I broke my wrist at the airport on the way to CA. Wearing most of my clothes (picked for the trip)was impossible due to the cast. But this jacket fit me perfect & boosted my spirits everytime I wore it. I received compliments immediately when I wore it. It fits me perfecty and feels so soft next to my skin. Now that I am back home I wear it often and always get compliments!! I feel dressed to the nines every time I put this beautiful jacket on. The flowers are so suttle yet give the jacket a designer look. I want to purchase this jacket in purple for the Spring!
Thank you Susan!! Love this jacket!!!!
IT'S JUST OK
This seems to run large. I normally wear an XL top (& a size 6 bottom!). Bought this in Large. I have 44" bust & still have room for a bulky knit sweater.
I REALLY like this little jacket. It's versatile: Wear it alone in chilly weather; add a sweater when temps drop. The cut is flattering & is perfect for wearing while driving. It's very lightweight on the body & has plenty of shoulder room so there's no constriction when turning a steering wheel. I purchased the Amethyst & LOVE the color.
I might have given this more stars if it had been less expensive, but when you boil it all down, it's just a heavy weight sweatshirt with buttons & embroidery. And even though I haven't yet washed it, it's beginning to look a little "pilly" - like the inside of a heavy sweatshirt.
All that being said, if they cut the price in half, I probably would consider getting another color. Bottom line? Oversized & overpriced, but *I* like it.
Comfortable and warm
I have purchased 4 of these jackets so far. I have not experienced the lining issue, so hopefully Susan will get that taken care of.
I love the simple buttons that match the coat color and do not jump out at you. I almost always prefer buttons over zippers, I seem to be ("zipper challenged"!) but also buttons give me more flexibility. And, with the overlapping of the fabric for buttons, I stay warmer.
I use one of my jackets as a "bed jacket" , and would LOVE for it to be made into a robe. Just make it longer.
I gave one to my Mom and she loves it also!
So feminine looking
The embroidery on this is so nice. Really dresses up the coat.. Makes it look and feel so much more feminine that my other fleece coats and jackets. This can also be very dressy. I have received lots of compliments on this. I have it in the black. I think I will go back for several more colors.
This Is Not Ivory
Just received this jacket I had hoped to get the sea foam but went with Ivory to wear in the changing season on a trip To be a lightweight piece for the evenings. It did come a bit wrinkled hope steaming will fix that , but the color is not ivory... It's like a peach blush. Not sure if I like that but not willing to spend the money to return it.
Love this jacket. Nicely done with stitching on the inside and lined sleeves. Sleeves loose enough for layering. Great for on the go in the winter. Will order another one.
Won't be sorry with purchase and price point. I've seen fleece in retail for more and not as nicely finished and fashionable. Also, washes well.
THANK YOU Susan.
Thin, cheap and wrinkled
If I could give minus 5 stars, I would. I was shocked at how cheap this looked when I got it. It looks like one of those blanket type wraps at the local big box store. Only the sleeves were lined? I guess if they weren't the material would stick to your shirt and your arms would be trapped. I'm sorry qvc, I have enjoyed many Susan Graver items but the quality is inexcusable. I got a coat on sale from Burlington coat factory for 10 dollars more made of real material, lined and with a faux fur trim that has real hardware.
Swing is not a swing
The colors and fabric were pretty; for the cost of a blouse these were intended to be an added color whenever I needed one. However, the fabric at the bottom that was supposed to be a swing was not sewn correctly and it ends up being too much fabric. It looks wrinkled and is really too big to start with. With the added fabric it only made the jacket too long and the fabric is in the way when you sit down. A swing jacket should move up and out of the way when you sit and it doesn't. This will work best on someone who needs added room on their bottom halves.
Love this jacket, I needed a jacket that I could wear "kinda" dressy and this fits the bill perfect. Not to dressy that I couldn't wear casual too. I live in So. CA so I don't have a need for a heavy coat. Love that the sleeves are lined, make it's easier when wearing long sleeves underneath .
This is a very well made product. I normally take a 3x, but this was big on me. A combination of the collar, the size and the color (green), made me feel like an old lady. I sent this one back. Maybe in a different color and a smaller size it would be ok, but it just didn't work for me. Would prefer more of a shawl collar, than this one... it just wasn't me. A great idea though, for a semi-dressy, casual coat. I wore it to my work christmas party, but felt very uncomfortable... like an old lady.. ;(
