I am very pleased with this beautiful sweater. Too bad you can't see the back because the lacy part on the shoulders goes part way down the back and is very pretty and delicate. You can see through the lacy part but not any of the rest of the sweater. The fabric is soft and the purple in the picture is true to the color shown. It is not form fitting but a little loose. It is very feminine and I get compliments every time I wear it.
OMG! This sweater is so beautiful! Picture in the catalog doesn't do it justice. Haven't washed it yet, so the jury is out on that. But can't wait for the perfect occasion to wear it. I know it will get compliments.
