Such an interesting cardigan with a unique, slightly swingy shape. I'm size 8 and 5'3" and suggest it's just the right size. The colour is fabulous and certainly not teal or blueish as someone suggested. To be honest it's exactly the same shade as the picutre. My only criticism would be that if you leave it open and swingy the button holes appear rather gapey and in strange places but it isn't really a problem.

unique and very lightweight and warm coat-cardigan
I bought this in September and wore it many times since, as it is exactly what - I wouldn't even be looking for as it is so unusual - exactly suits my style, and so useful too! I wear it as a light coat over even a thicker cardi or just long sleeved t-shirt or tunic and usually with some scarf so I never can mind a bit itching wool in it. Also I felt in love with its colour and wooden buttons, the collar which can be worn different ways... The sleeves are absolutely ok on me (even for layering as I mentioned) but the only thing I would change is that on the body it still remains slightly looser than it could be (not suggesting it should be fitted, just that the material stretches a bit so it doesn't need to be so loose).
It looks great over trousers, skinny jeans and tunic or a skirt and leggings ...so versatile.
Overall, despite it is more pricey I'd say, I am so pleased with this cardi I'd love to wear it in a whole winter too! Thank you so much WS!
Maybe there could be a little adjustment to your next version with arrow-shaped top of ends of a bit prolonged sleeves which could be worn undone to keep hands warmer but still free or done- rolled up and fastened with another lovely wooden button? (and what about some practical pockets, WS?)

Great cardi. It fits perfectly and as I am always wearing it with a top underneath, I don't notice the wool.
I would love if it was to come in other colours as I would probably buy more!
