Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major fail When I tried this on I could not believe it was the same sweater I'd ordered, for nearly $600. It's awful. The colors are nowhere near as vibrant as they appear online and in the catalog. The sweater is shapeless, and the front panels sag below the front-edge banding, so the sweater bulges. There are fiber bits sticking out from what should be a silky weave. I look at least 15 pounds heavier wearing this. Back it goes. What is happening to PC quality?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous jacket Looks superb - will dress up anything with which I wear it. It's also very comfortable, and has a good swing and feel. Couldn't be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from runs large This is an absolutely gorgeous sweater. I returned it only because it ran so big and I was feeling guilty for having spluged on other sweaters while waiting for this one (including the red mesa vest - which has yet to arrive). I may still order this sweater in a medium. It has everything I like - color, contrast and length

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Design and Colors It's hard to quarrel with the previous reviewer whose knowledge of Kaffe Fassett is so intimate. This is, indeed, a beautiful sweater--it's almost a coat. I have a weakness for geometric designs and see that many PC dresses go beautifully together with the colors in it. I have a couple of KF sweaters that I like very much, but this one--relaxed as it is--makes me look like a troll. The sleeves come to my fingernails and the proportions are wrong for my height and weight. Too bad for me, but lucky for taller women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Artistry It's hard to quarrel with a designer, now in his 70s, who has succeeded three generations of painters; has designed fabrics and costumes for the Royal Shakespeare Company; and was the first living textile artist to exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The design of this sweater is, as usual, uniquely beautiful. It is, at once, bold and yet subtle. And, like so many of Kaffe Fassett's sweaters, it draws on patterns that have a long cultural tradition -- and yet it is not simply a rehash, but a re-invention of them. No one will mistake this glossy pima sweater -- with its intricately interwoven, vibrant colors -- for a mass manufactured sweater; nor, I expect, will they fail to remark on its amazing artistry.
