CROCHET MELANITTA CARDI
Goes beautifully with the Emb dress
I needed something to go over the Emb dress for a graduation outfit. The shop assistant suggested this crochet cardi . I thought it was going to make me look all middle aged and old fashioned. (I am the former but, I hope, not the latter), but it's really very chic and pretty.
The round neck sits perfectly under the wide collar of the dress and the light coral accents stand out beautifully.
I'm between 10/12 in WS and a 10 looked best.

Trim is fluorescent!
I so wanted to like this cardigan but sadly I found the contrasting trim just too vivid. It looks quite muted in the web site photographs but was a really harsh colour in reality. The fit was too generous at the back and it seemed to gape on me so for these reasons this one has been returned.
I also thought it was expensive for a summer cardigan as for a few extra pounds I recently bought a White Stuff jacket.

Really pretty wedding or everyday
I tried this on to wear to a wedding over a dress and so glad I did as this is absolutely beautiful. This is more thick cotton crochet rather than knitwear which makes it 'stiffer' so it keeps its shape really well but still feels soft and comfortable. You can also dress this down and as per previous review looks great with a coral colour or [as suggested by the lovely team at Stratford] a navy vest top and jeans‚Ä¶‚Ä¶‚Ä¶The whole cardigan is see through which is difficult to see from the online picture although the colour is pretty much as you see it here.
