SHINING POP 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!

Love the buttons
I saw this cardi last year and went back to get it and was disappointed that it had sold out in my size. So when I saw it again this year in a beautiful pink shade I grabbed it immediately. It has lovely mother of pearl buttons
in different shapes hearts and stars and loads of spares too.

Tried in the shop but didn't have my size. Ordered as soon as I got home and I love it. I love the colour and the fit, not to big. Looks good with cropped jeans and linen trousers.
