Cardigan Crop Sweater

Cardigan Crop Sweater is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little sweater to wear with dresses I've been looking for a shorter cardigan to wear with summer dresses (hate how longer cardigans swallow them up) and this is perfect. Very lightweight and perfect for summer. Sale price is great too. Got it in the ivory color and may grab one in black as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only Madewell sweater I've ever bought in two colors! I noticed both the reviews of this cardigan were negative, but I loved my copper-colored one so much I went out and got the black as well. I love the length of the crop--I'm 5'4", so it isn't dramatically short on me (it could even be an inch or two shorter), but it doesn't look awkward layered over my high-waist skirts, which is my #1 summer look. the swingy, longer-in-back look is also crucial to keep my love of midi skirts looking stylish and not... nunlike? (no offense to nuns.) what i mean is, it's nice to have a basic with fashion-forward details. the cotton feels nice. it's not that super fuzzy soft brushed feeling, like a t-shirt--which tends to go away after a wash anywhere--but more of a textured feel, kind of like linen. a coarser/airier weave. which i love. i was longing for an easy-to-care-for cardigan to keep in my bag at all times, and this is absolutely as versatile and stylish as i could have hoped. i wish it came in a few more colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light Weight Cropped Sweater This sweater is great since I tend to wear a lot of high wasted skirts and loose fitting dresses! I only wish that it was a little bit warmer and a nicer material. It is a bit itchy to me and does not keep me warm really, so its good for warmer weather but not a winter sweater. Wish they made it in wool or cashmere!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, basic cardiagn This was a good buy, at the sale price. It's all cotton but the fabric feels more like rayon/linen, which is strange. But it's fine and I like it that it;s not actually that cropped. Goes with everything.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from well-made but shapeless The shirt is bulky and shapeless. I normally wear Size S, but even XS looks too bulky.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not soft I have lots of madewell sweaters and the best thing about them is they are soft. this sweater is not soft and in fact it is stiff. If you look at it without touching it it looks great - but then you put it on and it is stiff and thus has no drape and does not feel good where it touches your sking. it is going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Fabric The quality of this is awful. The fabric is stiff and itchy and looks cheap. I purchased the beautiful brown color, and am so disappointed as it was final sale and I will never wear it due to the fabric. Fit is on smaller side, and the side slits make it hang strange in front when buttoned up, but I love the color and wish it just were soft and dreamy like it looks! :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cardigan crop sweater - not worth it. I was disappointed by this item. The fit was not right and I was not able to send it back to get an exchange because it was a clearance item. The item was too big and the fabric was poor quality. My advice -- shop directly at a Madewell location to ensure the product is actually "made well." Positive -- it arrived VERY quickly. The speed of shipping was great.
