"didnt fit well"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I loved the style of this when I saw it picturedthe hood, pocket, trim, warmth and natural-colored yarn. However it did not fit me well. Im 551/2, about 125 lbs, and got a size medium (which is the same Ive ordered in other Novica sweeaters) The width was fine, but it was somewhat too short (and seemed much shorter than it looks in the photo). I would have been okay with that but the pocket hit me in a very werid placeright across the lower part of my bust (no matter how much I tried to pull it down or stretch it), it definitley needs to lower! Also the armholes didnt seem like they were cut right, the sweater pulled across my upper back even though overall elsewhere it was not too tight. Despite the problems, I loved everything else about it so decided not to return it at the time. But I wish I had as unfortunately I was not at all comfortable the few times I tried to wear it. I ended up donating it to a womens shelter, where I hope someone is happily wearing it.

"Sophisticated casual style"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Love it---would love to see it in more colors. Speaking of color, I would not call mine cranberry red...it is more wine-colored or bordeaux than how it appears online. I hope to see more of the 100% baby alpaca sweaters--not a fan of blends. (While in Peru they never had my size so I really appreciate the XL sizes they offer at Novica :-)
