Women's Short Sleeve Rayon Nylon Scoop Shell
A dressier option
I bought this to match a cardigan sweater, and the set is now complete. The fabric adds a dressier look, which is what I wanted. Please note that this item runs quite large: I purchased an XXS petite and it fits fine. Depending on the item, I usually take an XS or S petite.

This lightweight shell looks great under the matching long sleeved sweater.
great accessory to have handy....I have one in almost every color. The fit runs true to size (keeping in mind Lands End apparel always runs a little larger than stated. I am 5ft 6", 157 lbs. and wear a medium perfectly. Very happy with this purchase! The only complaint is that the fabric is fragile and you have to be careful wearing jewelry.

Graceful and easy to wear
Bought these in several colors. Very flattering.

Perfect scoop neck is neither too high or low. Dressy enough to wear under suits. Wears and washes beautifully. I like the smooth texture and haven't experienced the snagging problem others have mentioned. Please bring them back in white and other colors next season.

Either top is running small or I am running large...
I ordered my usual size and it was just too tight, especially in the Ivory color; a size up would be too big in this top. The Pale Emerald is beautiful. Would like to have enjoyed it. Worth a try as a versatile top, especially on sale.

Nice sweater basic to wear with a suit.
When I took the sweater out of the package I thought it looked too short, but it fits just fine and is very nice.

Has a couple "fatal" flaws that keep it off my "buy" list
I bought one of these sweaters by mistake last year while looking for an ivory, short-sleeved T shirt.
The sweater has some nice things going for it:
1. Nice weight so it drapes well as an under layer
2. I personally like the texture which feels like crepe de chine silk
The one I bought last year worked well as a shell worn under a blazer or cardigan.
But the flaws:
1. These sweaters tend to snag easily. I have two cats who like to sit in my lap and all it took was a friendly pat from one of the to snag one of the fibers out.
Short of sending the sweater in for reweaving which is insanely expensive (I do this only for my best cashmere or woolens) the sweater was ruined and good only for donation or trash.
2. The overall cut with the high neck is very conservative and worn alone is matronly looking. I actually like mixing classic looks with non-traditional to get a edgy classics look but even my tightest jeans don't lighten up the old-lady look of this sweater.
Wish LE could come up with a more flattering contemporary sweet that doesn't snag so easily. I like the fabric a lot but those two flaws unfortunately keep this sweater from having a place in my wardrobe
