Skipper Cardigan Sweater

Skipper Cardigan Sweater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sweater! I got the marled grey color. I think if there was a medium available, I would have ordered that, but there was a small only, so I went for it...and I'm glad I did. Like someone else said, it's slightly tight in the arms, but it loosened up right away. So if you go between sizes, you will most likely be okay sizing down. I love the side slits, and the color and thick fabric are just right. Perfect for summer into fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute cardigan I have this in both colors in my usual size (XS) - it fits a bit oversized like in the stock photo and is a good length on a shorter person (I'm 5'3"). They do shed a bit but nothing super terrible. The fabric is comfortable and cozy but not too hot/heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So so comfy At first I wasn't sure if I would like this sweater, but I really needed a cute, but warm, summer cardigan to wear to the work. I also wanted a cream colored one that didn't have buttons. So, when I tried it on in store, I thought why the heck not! As I've continued wearing this sweater, it has really grown on me. It is obviously made with quality materials, and it is thick enough to keep me warm at work, thin enough to be summery, and yet be a transitional piece for fall. I love the rounded ends of the sweater and the slits on the sides. I feel as though they're really flattering. Unlike other cardigans, that can sometimes make me look/feel as though I have no shape under the sweater, this one, thanks to the slits, makes me feel like I do! Also, the slits help show off whatever shirt I'm wearing under it! Size wise, I got my normal Madewell size S. It is roomy, and though I like that it is, I think I could have sized down to an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ashleigh Love that this sweater is made from quality fabrics such as linen (lightweight) and cotton (sustainable) looking forward to layering this up in the fall and winter. Even though I love a super heavy down sweater, its nice to know when I am inside or have on a heavy coat, You will not get too hot. Its still nice and thick just not overwhelmingly hot with all cotton. Easily layerable with a thin turtleneck! And great for the summer. The splits on the side added a cute detail which is vary flattering!! Nice job madewell its a hit, I WOULD SAY BUYYYY!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thought I would like it, but not my style I've been looking for an open cardigan to wear to work and thought this would do the trick, but it was a no-go for me. (I returned it.) The rounded cut at the hem is not flattering for girls with booties/hips IMO. I will say that the quality was very nice,, averaging out 5 stars for quality and 3 for style, I give it 4 stars overall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute style but shreds a lot Just wear this for three times. It was fine for the first wear, but it started shredding ridiculously for the third wear. When I took it off, the shredded fabric sticks on my skin, my tee shirt and my jeans! It also stretch a little upon wear. The style is super cute though! Just wish it could be made with better material!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great sweater, marled canvas does NOT look like picture I have been shopping at Madewell for years and never complained about misrepresentation of an item before...but the color that is portrayed online of the Skipper cardigan sweater in the marled canvas is so misleading that when I opened my package I actually thought it was the wrong sweater. I never have a problem buying these final sale, understanding that if I haven't seen the item in store, it might not fit right or be my style - but in this case, I had tried on the item in store, in white, and it was great. I was so excited to order it in grey. But what looks grey online, is obviously edited to look that way, because the sweater I received is bright white with some black thread woven through it, completely different and not cute at all. I am really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little summer cardi This cardi is so cute and stylish. The arms felt tight at first but loosened up quickly so I ended up keeping my regular size. The grey one is perfect. The off white is pretty but much more thin than the grey. So cute with jeans and tanks or shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite sweater Best things about this cardigan sweater: the soft fabric, slits on the sides and the pockets. Lovely!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and snuggly I just got this after scoping it out and trying to find my size in a couple stores. While it is a cute sweater that will work well in my icy office, one of the design flaws to me is the lack of buttons or any type of fastening. I suppose with the high side slits you could tie it in a knot across your middle but...why would buttons be omitted? Additionally, while it is one of only two sweaters Madewell has available right now, it's not really worth the full price, in my opinion. All of that being said, I think it is stylish and different than anything else out there right now and I love the pockets!
