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 this vest in almost every color. As an elder person size 2x is perfect for me and the lightweight knit keeps my shoulders warm in all seasons. The colors complete or provide contrast with my monochromatic color preferences. Comes out of wash (hang to dry) looking new.

                    I'm really enjoying wearing this vest because it adds just the right amount of warmth when I need a little something, but don't need long sleeves. It also really washes well.

                            Bought several of these vests to provide a light layer of warmth plus a touch of color for chilly days. A nice choice of colors to fit most any wardrobe. The perfect solution to brighten your day!

                              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.
