Johnstons anythings are such treat - pricey, but so worthwhile. This sweater is form fitting (small; 5'7' and 125 lbs), but not too tight. One could size up one size if a looser fit is desired. The sweater is decadently soft and surprisingly un-itchy. The hem stitch is quite pretty, and the 3/4 length sleeves are fun. The chartreuse green is beautiful, even more so in person than in the photo.

It's a beautiful sweater. REALLY. The brown so rich in color. But unlike the photo, the sweater was not form fitting at all. Kinda baggy. I have broad shoulders, so the scoop neck fit well (38" got the large), but the sweater is quite long (like a shrunken dress, my husband said), and it is knit for someone with larger hips than me. It was swimming out there. So unfortunately ....
Trying to find another Johnstons with a more appropriate knit pattern.

The sweater is soft and fits true to size. I was expecting cinnamon to be more in the neighborhood of rust, but it's orange melange. It's a nice shade, though. I plan to wear it with a brown tweed blazer. I am considering buying one or two other colors, as well.

I was really looking forward to these sweaters. I ordered duck egg and rhubarb colors. I normally love boat & ballet neck tops. I think the problem for me was that the arms were set too narrowly. That's the best I can describe it. Otherwise they are really pretty and soft.
