Ribbed Cowl Neck Sweater is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by BambiTail from Bit of a let down I was excited to see this sweater listed, as it hit so many of my checkboxes. Long sleeve? Check. Mix design? Check. Length? Check. (Not a crop or a tunic) Fitted? Yes! All seemed to be going great, so I ordered the beige color. Then I tried it on. Fit fine, consistent with my usual bebe size. There is some stretch to this, but not a lot. I'm short, so I expected the sleeves to be long, but that wasn't a problem either. I can distribute the extra length throughout my arm so that it's even all over, with no bunching. The curved hem is a very nice touch, probably my favorite part of the whole sweater. I'm not a big fan of cowl neck, so I was surprised to like this one. It's bulky, but that allows it to be styled many different ways. Good to play around with. (It can also lay more flat) So, I'm making all these fun adjustments, but there is one thing I can't twist or fix: The pattern. Center panel. It's not flattering. Perhaps it makes me look wider? I'm not sure how else to describe it. Looks fine on the model, looks good held up against me, but once put on? Much more broad, and the chevron on either side don't save it. The fabric isn't as soft as I'd like, but it is warm. Very nice for fall into winter. I was hoping to toss this in the dryer after a basic hand wash, but the label says Dry Clean. This sweater was full of surprises. I really wanted to love this sweater, but what should've been my favorite aspect ended up being the worst. It's going back.
