Women's Cotton Open Drape Cardigan Sweater
A good basic piece
This is a nice cardigan -- the knit is pretty and a little different and the color (taupe) is very versatile. Not a Wow!, but it was on sale and I will definitely use it. The sleeves are a little tight (this seems to happen with a lot of Lands End stuff), but not too tight to send it back, just makes it a little harder to get a long-sleeved blouse under it smoothly.

Nice Textured Sweater
This is a nicely textured sweater. I liked the styling and the loose weave. The sweater was a little bulkier than I expected, which made it more casual. I do have to agree with some others that the sleeves are cut a little narrow and limited what could be worn beneath it. This wasn't a deal-breaker for me, but I did have to be more careful putting it on as the looser weave makes the sweater more delicate. I really liked the beige color-- sort of an oatmeal color--but unfortunatelely it didn't go with my wardrobe so I had to return it.

I wanted a casual, washable sweater to slip on at home when I was feeling chilly. This one does the job perfectly..

flattering, great weight, love the front
Loose, but not baggy, and the front lies flat and is very flattering. I'm 5'7, and the length is perfect; just hits the bottom of my bum. Really nice mid range weight, so it hangs nicely (doesn't cling), but is not too warm. I've only worn it with light tanks/t-shirts so have not found any problems with sleeves being too tight as some reviewers have found (and I wear an XL). A perfect spring sweater. I had the camel colour, and liked it so much I went back for the blue as well. Nice soft, neutral tones. I'm hoping we'll see more in this style!

Sleeves Are Made Skin-Tight - ill fitting garment
Very disappointed in how ill-fitting this sweater is. Like other reviewers, I found that the sleeves are made extremely tight. And no, I do NOT have heavy nor thick arms. It's ridiculous how tight these sleeves are.

Very Pretty Weave!
I have this sweater in both colors now - love the fit and longer length! I'm 5'6" and it covers the bum, almost mid thigh length. I like a sweater that 'looks' like it could be buttoned, even if it doesn't have buttons ...in other words, I don't want a sweater so tight fitting that it cannot meet in the middle without being stretched. It is perfect in my usual size. It has a subtle variation in coloring but not so much as to look obviously marled. Yes, it is likely to snag, like most of my looser weave sweaters but I keep a little tool handy...like a tiny crochet hook, to pull the snags back through to the inside. It's worked for me so far!

I love this sweater!
I got the one in blue and it is so nice. It's a big part of my wardrobe now. It fits true to size. I haven't bought sweaters in quite a while but I like the new styles in sweaters. I also bought two others that are similar to this one.

Returning for larger size-sleeves too short!
Fits tight in the arms and sleeves were too short. I wear 1x (large bust) never had this problem with Lands End. I can't see the sleeve length issue getting any better considering it's 100% cotton. But I am going to try a size up since I love the feel of it. It's a nice weight, not cheesy thin like so many others out there.

returning for larger size
Sleeves were tight for the size, so I am ordering larger size to see if this works better, so I can wear with the turtlenecks I also bought, otherwise will return both. Love the color and the texture of the sweater.
