SHINING POP CARDI
I was interested to read the review by "popsmum" as she had exactly the same experience as me. This cardy did hang a bit funny but I thought it was my shape! However, when I washed it....carefully, and dried it....also carefully, its odd shape was even clearer. One side was shorter than the other and no matter how you lay it out or iron it, it is lopsided. Such a shame as it's gorgeous light summery fabric and a lovely colour. However, no problem in returning it for a refund. Very helpful and courteous response.

Not colour fast
I have never spent this much on a cardi, but I walked into a shop and saw it and had to have it., I bought the bright pink. Like previous reviewers it bled onto my top, but that easily washed out. Should have seen it as a warning though. I washed it only because the sleeves had stretched, in luke warm water, by hand. The washing water turned bright pink, and the cardigan, although still pretty has lost the wow factor it had simply by virtue of the colour. So disappointed as I think it was the amazing colours that enabled white stuff to price this as they did, now feel its an average cardi.

Bought this cardi because thought it looked lovely, beautiful colour,unusual cut but quite flattering and light for the summer. Wore it a couple of times, and noticed it was getting bigger and it didn't seem to sit quite right, but thought it was because it was a cut I don't usually wear.
Washed it (handwash, cool temp), and when I came to lay it out could not understand the shape at all! The button side is actually four inches shorter than the button hole side, which is the same length as the back of the cardigan. No wonder it felt odd to wear! Buttons are also poorly attached on the pockets and there are loose threads on the the pockets. I too have noticed the garment has faded, after one wash!
Overall, I feel this garment is poorly made and I am returning it for a refund as I am very disappointed in it. Have uploaded an image to illustrate what it looks like laid out on my kitchen table. This is size 12 but around the bottom of the cardigan it could be a size 16! As you can see from my picture, this cardi looks entirely different to the one in the above image. I have laid it out following the seams, and when measuring the garment, the left-hand front panel is 3 cms wider than the right!
