Can't Understand These Reviews....
on January 20, 2013
I ordered the jacket based on the good reviews. I have a fashionable figure, about 5'7" and wear clothes well. But I have never tried on a jacket that was as ill-fitting as this one. It didn't resemble the photo at all.
The quality of construction was great (except for the strong chemical smell of the fabric), but the fit was very strange. Very short-waisted and tight above the waist, a silly looking peplum in the hip - and those sleeves! (as someone mentioned) completely ridiculous in length. The cuffs cannot be altered because of the trim, so the sleeves would have to be removed entirely from the jacket and made shorter from the shoulder.
But this is the worst issue with the jacket. The sleeves are so tight in the underarm and shoulder area, that I could not raise my arms above the waist.
I can only assume that those reviewers who loved the jacket must be very petite - although I can't imagine what they did about those sleeves designed for a woman 6'5" tall!
