First Draft Sweater

First Draft Sweater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, Warm, Light I bought the gray and the color is nice (I'm picky about color). My go-to sweater this winter… perfect fit, soft, warm, and light. It's perfect for layering. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for all Occassions I just got this sweater and I love it, looks cute with jeans and flats, jeans and booties, or throw on a blazer and it looks great at work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Flattering I got this sweater in black, a size up from my normal, for a more slouchy fit. It has quickly become my go-to look and I will be ordering more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wardrobe Staple Great light weight sweater. Definitely order a size up if you want it to fit like on the model with the grey version. I'm normally a medium size (5'7" 140lb) and am very happy with the large size, loose but still not too long. I plan on using this as a layering piece with long sleeve shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfortable Love this sweater. Just be really careful washing it - it's ok with Woolite and cold water but not regular laundry soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Comfy great looking sweater! Usually an XS or S, ordered a S and it fits well, just a little bit oversized so I can wear either a tank top or long sleeved shirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Basic Fall Sweater - Soft Wool Oh Madewell, you keep taking more and more of my money... I was looking for a lightweight sweater for fall that wasn't boxy or clingy in weird places. This one drapes just the way I wanted - slim sleeves that fit the arms, small slit on the sides so it hangs instead of bunching up. Very flattering. The V-neck is JUST high enough for modesty - but only barely. May want to wear a tank/cami underneath. I bought one in black and one in maroon (store-only color, I think) during the recent sweater sale. I'm 5'5, 115 and took a XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This sweater fits perfectly (I'm 5'5', slim and got it in an XS) and looks great. The quality of the wool and drape of the sweater are fantastic. If it isn't clear from the photos, the sweater has a notched hem like a classic rugby shirt, not have one continuous hem from front to back like a typical V-neck sweater. This is fine with me and I think actually gives it a more fluid drape. I highly recommend it.
