French Quarter Pullover Sweater

French Quarter Pullover Sweater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fall Sweater I am 5' 7" but have a shorter torso and I'm always on the hunt for sweaters that hit me at the hips-- this fits just right! I'm usually a S and that is what ordered, despite some comments that this ran large. This has a slouchier fit with drop shoulders, which I love. The large knit details are beautiful and the sweater definitely has weight to it, which I appreciate during this time of year. I ordered the blush pink color and it's as pictured on the site. Great pick—I might even have to go back for a second!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly comfy! I love this sweater. So easy to throw on over anything, very comfortable. The knit is pretty big, so you can definitely see through, but it can give a cool effect depending on what you wear under.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sweater I love this sweater! Before I ordered it, I read reviews and decided to order a size smaller and it was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed! This is my first purchase from Madewell, and I'm really impressed with the quality of this sweater. I bought it online, and I wasn't expecting it to be as thick and substantial as it was! The knit is fairly loose, so air does get through and you'd need to layer on a cold day, but the fabric itself feels so strong -- it's the epitome of a cozy, snuggly sweater for a windy day. I got mine in "pale muslin", and it's maybe a touuuch lighter than the picture online, a lovely cream color. I'm 5' and 90 lbs, and the XXS fits great. It's definitely oversized, but it doesn't totally envelope me. The sleeves are a smidge long, but it adds to the look imo and you can always just roll the cuff up once. Overall, a great sweater!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fall sweater! this sweater has a perfect weight and style. i love that it's 100% cotton, so it is safe to hand-wash. the only thing you should note is that it's a slightly cropped length. i'm 5'2" 110lbs and i ordered the XS. i still love it, but i probably would have ordered the S if i had known--i like my clothes slightly oversized. overall, i would totally recommend everyone to buy this sweater!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fall staple! I bought these sweaters in the cedar and night vision color after trying them on in my local store. The color and weight of the sweater is its biggest selling point - I have had no problems with the material and it's heavy enough to keep me warm while being the slightest open knit. The sleeves are dropped substantially. I listened to other reviewers and sized down to a S, usually a M in Madewell and I love an oversized fit. At a small, it was still pretty generous. I'm 5'1 with a 32C bust and did not find any problems with how the sweater fit (and I definitely do not have skinny arms). I think the oversized fit with the dropped shoulder seams help take away from my arms; this can also be because I chose the darker colored sweaters. Overall, it's a perfect length for my high waisted jeans and beautiful to throw on this fall and winter! I think it's a Madewell must!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even nicer in person than the web pics show I purchased in the ink (dark navy) color in store yesterday. I immediately fell in love with knit / pattern, shape and weight of the sweater. This isn't a flimsy knit. It isn't overly heavy, either, but it has substance if that makes sense. It is cropped, but I have a short torso. The length falls just below natural waist, and I plan to layer it over my peplum tops (also from Madewell). I usually size up to a small in most Madewell tops to account for shrinkage, and because I often find the arms too short or tight. With this, the XS is perfect. In case it helps, I'm 5'5" 113lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute fall staple! I got this in a small - I'm 5'4", 34C, 140 lbs (usually between a medium and small at Madewell), and it fits great. A few things I wish I knew beforehand: the fabric is really thick and a teeny bit scratchy with absolutely no stretch to it. It has noticeably dropped shoulders, so if that's not your thing, this sweater might not be for you. It's also pretty boxy. I paired it with the knotshine necklace and a pair of leggings and it'll be great for when it starts to get a bit chillier here!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Bought Two It was immediate LOVE with the rusty-orange cedar color and I quickly scoped up the rich navy color, too. Regarding sizing, it's generous through the arms and body, though not long. This is perfect for my shorter torso as I prefer cropped styles which I half-tuck into jeans. Size down unless you're going for a very oversized shape. I usually take an M or L in Madewell sweaters, but went with the S and it's still generously sized. The fabric is cozy but springy, not dense, so your bra will be visible through the sweater unless you layer. I'm also concerned that the openness of the knit may attract snags so I plan to handwash these. None of these design choices concerned me enough to stop me from buying two, as I said. The knit pattern is elegant but the shape is casually cool. Find your color and love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snags This sweater is the perfect weight and fit. The only thing I don't like about this sweater is that it snags onto things easily, ie. my purse. The yarn gets pulled but then goes back. I have to be selective when I wear this sweater because I'm afraid of ripping the yarn.
