SWING AROUND KNIT
Gorgeous jumper; poor choice of yarn
I was so thrilled to find this jumper and bought both the pink and the blue. They look fantastic for winter and spring.
But alas, after only several wearings, each looks tatty and shabby. The yarn mixture pills horribly!!!! All over.
I bought the pilling comb and worked gently over the surface. Each jumper now looks worse. I expected these jumpers to last me for years.
I am so disappointed. The girl in my local White Stuff store looked at me with unsympathetic eyes, sold me the comb, and I am left having spent nearly Â£100 with 2 jumpers that look like they were bought at a jumble sale. :(

This is a lovely jumper, very sophisticated and can be dressed up or down. Vibrant colour and very flattering despite the brighter colour being around the hip area.
I ordered a 12 and 14 and have kept the 14. Similarly to another reviewer, I too would have liked less 'swing' on the bottom of the jumper (I love a fitted knit) but it's no deal breaker. I also fear it will bobble but it's okay for now....
Just to say, I've paired this jumper with the longboard skirt and it looks the business ( if I do say so myself)!

Lengthen your jumpers please!
I bought the navy and chartreuse jumper in the sale specifically because of the colours - which are beautiful and flattering - but why, oh why, WS, have you started making your jumpers so short? Bum-skimming is not flattering on most people. I'm only 5'5" so women with longer bodies beware! As another reviewer said, the flare is also a bit too much - perhaps another couple of inches on the length would have counteracted this. All in all, I like this top, but I don't love it - and I really wanted to.
