Women's Long Sleeve Summer Supima Cardigan
Wait Until You Wash It!!
Loved the purple, and bought the polka dot top to go with it. It looked cute and I had compliments. Then......
I washed it!! Now all the ribbing at the bottom and the sleeves rolls up and won't flatten out. The idea of having to press out my sweaters is just too much. It's not that great a product to bother with. Even the front doesn't lie flat. I bought a black one too, but all three have to go back. There is no other cardigan in the puple color. And that's what made the look, both items together. The price for this is way too high compared to what you get.
This is by far the worst item I have ever bought from LE in 20+years. No quality at all.

Excellent for hot days
This sweater is very thin, the sleeves are a bit long, and I found it to run big overall, but it's absolutely perfect for me during the hotter months when I need a professional look without the bulk of a blazer or heavy knit. I still think this is a five star purchase but because it is so thin it does wrinkle a tad when traveling. However, it is an absolute staple for me and worth every penny.

Lovely color but the sweater is long!
I ordered the sweater in purple and the color is great. It was ordered in a petite and it was very long - too long! I did keep it. A white one was back ordered and I will be returning it because of the length.

I bought two of these beautiful cardigans and am really thrilled with them. The fabric is so fine and elegant. They will be really trans-seasonal. Just wish they came in a bigger colour range - perhaps next time?

Not for me.
This cardigan was not for me. It was sort of long and shapeless, and would have been a lot more attractive with 3/4 sleeves. In addition, the brown shade was really not a very pretty color. I would have preferred a chocolate brown, a beige, or a taupe/mushroom. This was neither orange or brown, just something odd in-between. I sent the sweater back.

love love love!
This is one of the nicest summer cardigans i've owned. it certainly is thin but that is exactly what i wanted. I wear lightweight cardigans over tank tops all summer to avoid burning in the sun and this will be exactly perfect. It's a nice enough quality that i wont hesitate to wear it over a fancy dress for a summer wedding. I also purchased the pale blue and it's a beautiful color. I'm ordering the black as well. Since it is so thin, the price is a touch steep, but it was worth it to me. I'd say it runs a smidge large, but it's meant to be worn over things, so i wouldnt size up any. Hope this is a yearly offering!

Great light weight summer sweater
I was surprised at the mixed reviews on this one: I ordered this in the Coastal mist, size medium. It fits slightly big but I planned to wear it over summer dresses so not a big deal. The knit is thin as stated in the product description, and yes, you can read through it if you place the fabric over a book but since I was looking for a light weight sweater to wear in the summer this was perfect. It is very fine gauge, soft and holds its shape well. It falls to about mid-hip, so not too short on my 5' 6" frame. Ther Coastal mist colour is gorgeous. One reader stated that her sweater was poor quality- mine was quite well made- no problems with uneven seams or tags. I was very pleased with this purchase.

These cardigans are very soft and great for the summer because there not to thick or to thin so there A+++ and they fit me perfectly!

The fabric is so flimsy that I can actually read the 3/4 inch letters of a book title through it. The seams are puckered and uneven, and there's a gap where the side tag is sewn in. Land's End sweaters almost always fit me well. This one is too long overall. The sleeves are way too long and very tight. What happened to the old quality control and commitment to using good materials?

Uggh!!! I was so excited when I ordered three of these cardigans in a small petite, and I guess I should have known better! First, the length, on me, a 5'0 small petite frame was long on me like a boyfriend sweater, not flattering at all. The colors were great, but the material is sooooo thin and flimsy that it is not worth $49! I have bought many items from lands end because I felt the quality was good, and the sizing was too. However, this was not a good purchase and I feel the description for the fit is way off! I ordered a small petite and it just hung horribly... At this price, I would NOT recommend this product to anyone....
