(5'3", normally a L or XL) This is by far the most comfortable thing I own. The Tencel is soft and lightweight but offers warmth without being stifling. I have been wearing it nonstop, even around the house.
Which leads me to my first but inevitable spill on my cardigan. I was terrified I just ruined it, but a warm wet wipe off and laid out to dry overnight and you honestly can't even tell anything happened.
If I could offer one small criticism, due to the amount of fabric and lack of fitted structure, it does make it a little difficult to put your arms through properly (for context, I have EDS) but tbh this may just be my lack of familiarity in clothes of this style. I'm sure I'll get it with practice, and tbh I'd still get another even with this.
The material is so smooth and feels really nice - it has some weight to it, and it drapes SO wonderfully on the body, super flattering. It's one-size-fits-all, basically - I'm 5'2 and the front hangs to just below the knee on me, which is just the right length in my opinion! I love all the pockets, and the little loop to cinch the front closed is genius. I could see wearing this with just about anything - dressed up or down, in any season.
the cardigan is soft and pleasingly, not onerously, heavy. it is sometimes a little difficult to find the arm holes when putting it on, and the width of the convertible collar means that i've more than once tried to put it on upside down, but it is generally easily orientable thanks to the label. i also sometimes mistake the front zipper pocket for the flap of the side pocket, if that makes sense? so i end up trying to put my hand behind the front zipper pocket, haha. i'm extremely happy with the pockets, though! spacious, soft, and well-secured to the cardigan lining. oh, and it's warm, but not stiflingly so!
big props to janelle et al on kickstarter success and fulfillment! glad to support a local, sustainable, woc-owned business :)
I love almost everything... only one thing on my wish list. I love the fabric, the weight, the way it hangs. The only change I would request is that the back is cut longer. Because the weight of the front, the back rides up. I would love it if the back covered the booty better. After a few minutes the back has hiked up and my booty is exposed, so then I am constantly tugging on it. I”m still wearing it with everything this spring.
