Women's Button-front Drifter Cardigan Sweater
This classic sweater is very soft and comfortable, at least when new.
Since I am fond of nice quality all cotton sweaters, I ordered different styles of Drifters available in my size. The v-neck and crew-neck didn't work out, fit-wise, but the cardigan its fine. The maize color is my favorite, but I also have the navy. I haven't tried washing them yet, though, so can only hope that they retain their shape and color (as advertised)....hence the rating of 4 rather than 5.

Okay, nothing special
Land's End quality has decreased over the years. Not the same drifter quality that I have purchased in the past. Purchased on clearance, wouldn't purchase at full price.

This is a lovely sweater! The fabric is soft with a beautiful, soft sheen and drape. High quality, perfect fit. I'll be looking for other colors to get.

The usual quality; but didn't love color
I like the drifter quality; it wears well over time. I have several styles in as many colors. The screen color was significantly softer than the brighter color I received. Since I don't always wear yellow well, it made a difference. I decided to go ahead and keep it since I got it on deep discountl but I'm not totally satisified.

Shrank when washed as directed.
Prior to wearing, I washed this sweater as directed, i.e. warm wash on delicate, and used a cold rinse; dried on low. Though it still looks nice, this sweater shrank at least one size. If it does not shrink more and I gain no more than one gram, I probably can wear it, though it is snugger than I like. The same thing happened with another Drifter I bought at the same time. In future, I will treat these like wool, and wash in cold, dry flat, no dryer. Btw, these instances are very different from my first Drifter, which ran large, and which over the years I have tried to shrink a bit....

Fits well and looks good.
Wear it to work and I pleased with the fit and style. I like the length.

I love the Drifter cardigans!
The sweater fits fine. I wish the drifter cardigans came in more colors and with a round neck and not the vee neck.

This sweater is practical and very well made. I have so many other Drifter cardigans, but I did not have this color. I have had some Drifter cardigans for over 10 years. They are still in great shape.

Seems to run a little big. I ordered a medium and ended up returning it for a size small. This is a well-made sweater and the price was wonderful. Beautiful colors - ordered purple, orange, and dark red to give as gifts. Many times I can't afford regular LE prices, but the sales make it worthwhile to look. Very satisfied!

Inconsistant Sizing - Runs large
I purchased this sweater last month in red, medium, and liked it so much I purchased another one in navy blue last week. I received the blue one yesterday (same size medium) and it is much larger than the red one. I am afraid I will have to return it. Love the sweater, but concerned how another medium will fit.
