Rated 5 out of 5 by SomeWhereOverTheRainbow Marled Button Up Sweater
I already own three of these sweaters in different colors and have bought some for relatives and we LOVE them! I just bought the Wysteria Blue color and was thrilled because I got it on sale with more than half off! I always size up for comfort and match up L.L. Bean wrinkle resistant or easy care blouses to wear them underneath the sweaters. I machine wash them on cold inside out, and also close up all the buttons before washing. I line dry them, and they come out beautiful! One thing, is not to hang them on any kind of hanger, because they will stretch out and the shoulders will have "bump outs" on them. I fold them and put them away in my hope chest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRTlady Beautiful warm sweater
I ordered this sweater while it was on the two time a day special. I had received a top in the same color, wisteria. I was so please when I opened the package. It's a very nice heavy sweater that looks like it is knitted by hand. It is very warm. It is lovely. I've received compliments when I wear it.

I love LLBean and ordered this sweater on special. It is beautiful. It is a nice medium weight and will work under a coat/jacket or by itself. The color I ordered is blue. It is a medium blue and very pretty. It is very well made. I will be ordering more colors. The medium fits well. I usually order a small or medium in tops. Hope this helps. It would make a great gift.

Rated 1 out of 5 by fresch unsatisfactory product
I was looking forward to receiving and wearing this sweater.
Unfortunately, when I wore it to work I noticed the sleeves were tight and short. Additionally the hem rolled up, when the description did not include a rolled hem. The overall construction of the sweater was not what I was expecting. Very disappointed.
I was intending to buy another color, but this purchase has changed my mind. I wont be buying another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momma2two well made, beautiful sweater
I got this in the aqua sea color on sale. I got a petite medium and it is not too loose or tight. I'm 5'2" and 120 lbs. It is a thick sweater and I'm always cold so it works. The color is pretty and it falls to hip length. I own another one in the coral and get so many compliments. I'm sure this one will get compliments as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AnnieGetYourGun Inconsistent Fit
I ordered this sweater in 3 different colors, all the same size Large-Petite. The blue fit me perfectly and I love it. The coral was at least 2" longer in the body/sleeves, but the same width as the blue. The stone was the same length as the blue, but 4" narrower throughout the body and I can't button it closed. I will be returning all but the blue. Now I am wondering (because I think the sweaters are beautiful) how many of each color I should order so that I can try them all on and hopefully find one with the correct fit in another color...

Rated 1 out of 5 by MLGR Wonderful colour but the fit is too small
Loved the colour, but agree with other reviewers that the fit is too small. The sweater is very tight across the bust.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RU4Real Made too small.
Quality control on this item seems to have missed the fact that it is too short in the sleeves, and the bodice is smaller than other LL Bean women's sweaters of the same size. Also, it seems to have the stiffness of a cotton sweater which has been pre-shrunk. Perhaps this is due to the tension or gauge of the knit...
As a caveat, I was hoping this sweater would be similar to the silk/cotton cardigan which I purchased a few years back. Best sweater ever! This sweater is nothing like it... :(
Dare I suggest that the LLBean archives be scoured to find the product specs on 0FW49 (80%Silk/20%Cotton Cardigan with lovely large shell buttons) for it to be offered once again?

Rated 2 out of 5 by iBuyaLotofLLbean Gorgeous colors, disappointed in styling
This review is for the marled cotton cardigan, offered in 4 beautiful colors this year. I ordered the mallard green, but am returning it. The yarn color and weight are great, but the fit isn't right for me, and I blame the button placement. I've worn a size M in LLBean sweaters for years. When buttoned, the front of this sweater gaps apart between the buttons, which are placed on the very edge. Wish they had designed it with a bit of overlap between the button & buttonhole edges. If the fit had been right, I would have ordered it in multiple colors.

This is a beautiful sweater that goes with many different outfits. I wear a petite small and this fits me perfectly. I give it an "excellent" rating.
