Checkpoint Sweater

Checkpoint Sweater is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for petite girls! This sweater is so cute! It is so hard to find any long-sleeve clothing that fits me cuz I'm petite (even though I'm 5"6). But this one fits perfectly. It does run small compared to most other madewell sweaters, but the sleeve length and body length are perfect for me. The body length actually fits a bit higher than in the picture. I'm a big fan for marled grey. I also love the coloblocking detail of the sweater. Please make more clothing that petite girls can wear madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy fall sweater with pretty detail I love the colorblock design of this sweater. It fits just a little bit short and boxy, but it's great with mid-rise jeans or layered over another shirt. The quality is great, I'll be wearing this sweater all fall and winter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sweater Overall this is a great sweater. It's definitely got a shorter and boxier cut to it than shown in the pictures, but I think the cut brings some added style to it! The material is soft, and I haven't run into any issues with pilling/etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs shorter than the picture, but warm! This sweater definitely runs smaller than as shown on the model. The sweater definitely doesn't hug your body when you wear it. But it's super warm and looks great. I usually end up wearing a shirt underneath, but it is soft. You can definitely dress it up with some statement jewelry as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, but short I too found this sweater to be short. I received it as a gift, so I will probably not be returning/exchanging. I am 5'4'' and this ended right below the button on my pants. I had hoped it would be longer (as it appears on the model in the picture) as I am paranoid about my pants riding low, so I typically get longer tops. If you have high waisted pants this shouldn't be a problem. Because the sweater proportions are shorter than pictured, the second pattern starts in the middle of my breast, which does kind of look awkward. If I had purchased this myself I would probably return, but overall the sweater is fine, nothing amazing. However, it is really soft.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't love it This sweater unfortunately was not as pictured. It looks much longer on the model than it is in real life. I like the cropped look, but it was a bit odd with this particular sweater. I think this is probably one of the first Madewell products I would not recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful sweater, not the length I hoped for I loved the look and length of this sweater, and after reading other reviews I was worried about it being too short and boxy, then ordered a size up to try to compensate for it. When it came I could already tell that it would be too short, and the photo of it with the model is just not how it looks on anyone else. (Even with the caveat about how the sweater is shorter in the description, it's still disappointing as it looks like such a nice length on the model). With the slits at the sides - the sweater does need to be a little longer, if those were not there it would be fine with hitting at the hips (where it does for me). The sweater itself is great material, well made, and great colors. The photo of the sweater is just not on par with what you actually get in real life, unfortunately.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from much shorter in real life! I wanted to like this sweater but it is way too short for me. It looks nothing like it does on in the photos, it is much boxier. It looks like a vintage 80's sweater as far as the fit. I would say the sizing is true to size except for the length, and I am not an amazon, I'm 5'4". Sadly, I think I'll be returning it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Picture deceiving This sweater turns out a lot shorter than what is pictured! As much as I like my midriff, I do not want to show it off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Same as the other reviewer Not sure which sweater they were using to take this photograph, but it wasn't the one I received in the mail. Shorter and boxier than shown. It's not bad looking, but not what's shown in the photo.
