This soft sweater vest makes a nice extra layer especially in transition seasons. It is very comfortable and washes well. Something to note is that I got the sage green color. It is very pretty but really more of a seafoam, on the blue end of green. It does not match a single top in the National catalog, but it does look well with solid colors. My only complaint is that it is just slightly small. I generally wear a 24, and since 3X covers 24/26 I expected it to be a little loose, which I like in a layering piece. This just barely buttons and there are slight gaps between buttons toward the bottom. It looks all right and I am keeping it, but I would have liked a slightly more generous shaping.

Color Not what I expected

I have not washed the garment so don't know how well it washes but the color is more grey than I like.

      I have these vests in every color! They are perfect for using over blouses or tops when a sweater is too much, or when an extra layer is needed in winter. They can really tie an outfit together too!

          These vests are soft, flattering, and very useful for layering. They can be worn over a long-sleeved tee shirt or blouse, or an elbow-sleeved tee shirt. They wash and dry well. I now have two. It's hard to restrain myself from ordering more.

                I ordered these for my Mother. Not our first order for these vest. She will be 89 in a few days and she is always cold. These are comfortable, they wash nicely and they give her that little extra warmth she needs to be comfortable.

                Vest comes in a nice array of colors. Looks nice on, adds some polish to outfits. Have two different colors and have enjoyed them. Could be a little more substantial (the yarn & knit).

                  I like vests because they "streamline" the figure. You can wear a shirt or turtleneck tucked into pants and with the vest on top, a larger waist/tummy is covered. This sweater vest comes in nice colors and dresses up the outfit as well as adding some warmth for cooler days.

                            This soft sweater vest makes a nice extra layer especially in transition seasons. It is very comfortable and washes well. Something to note is that I got the sage green color. It is very pretty but really more of a seafoam, on the blue end of green. It does not match a single top in the National catalog, but it does look well with solid colors. My only complaint is that it is just slightly small. I generally wear a 24, and since 3X covers 24/26 I expected it to be a little loose, which I like in a layering piece. This just barely buttons and there are slight gaps between buttons toward the bottom. It looks all right and I am keeping it, but I would have liked a slightly more generous shaping.

                                Easier layering than long sleeve sweaters and jackets over other clothing, should have chosen them on ago.

                                I chose both the blue and the burgundy colors, both are very rich. The knit pattern dresses them up.

                                  I purchased 2 of these vests for my mother. She loves them. Along with being practical, they are very nice, beautifuly stitched vests.
