Rated 3 out of 5 by Bornagainteen Lovely style, but .....
I bought a size M (usual size 14) in string colour in last weeks feature before reviews were available. Pleased with the style and colour (which is as presentation and not as white as web picture). but ...... reading between the lines of other reviews and my own experience I think I would have been better to size up to L on this jumper - especially if you want the slightly oversize box top presented. In Marlas tops generally M is my best bet but I do find size differs depending on style. The recent TSV 'coatigan' was a bit big for me in M & sometimes I would choose a size up or down if p&p costs weren't a consideration on already expensive garments.
The sleeves on this jumper are on the short side, but that's ok for the style of the garment, however I found the width at the top of the arms tighter than expected, and the shoulder width poor for someone with broader shoulders. Also a lot shorter than the one Lesley was wearing which may have grown on the hanger?
In summary - Great style, nice colour but I deducted 1 star for fit & variability in sizing, and another for cost which is high for a garment yarn that's quite ordinary - not as chunky or warm as expected and in essence just an acrylic that I'm hoping won't go out of shape as so many do. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing how collections wear as reviews are made shortly after items sold and not available 12 months or more later. May be cost effective if it wears and washes well but difficult to know, and expensive if not.

What a beautiful jumper. So,so soft. I chose the teal which is a lovely colour. I am a size 14 and purchased the medium. Fortunately the sleeves were wrist length on me which is lucky as I have short arms. I love the boxy look. Thinking of purchasing another one.

Just got this jumper in a size L . It is beautiful and I love the colour straw a cream colour . But I'm 5'8 and a size 16 . And the sleeves are way to short . How ever I think it could take being a size bigger, so I'm sending this back and I v just ordered an XL in the straw and the light blue . Thank goodness it s still at the feature price

Am wearing this top as I type this review. Brought the soft teal in medium and am a size 14. It is lovely and soft to the touch , well finished and the pattern on the sleeves add a touch of interest. It is easy to get on and off and teams well with other similar colours which I am collecting.
Marla please bring across the Tape yarn duster in misty mauve, the printed sweater in misty mauve and the Printed cardy with decorative pin as I am waiting to buy them
