"Perfect sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a gift for my mother in law, who is in her 80's - the fit is flattering, and so is the color - material is so soft - she loves it, and it looks just wonderful on her. The size small was perfect for a petite woman - I would guess that she would normally wear a small in most of her tops, so the sizing was right on.
