It’s all about the texture with this open jacket. The front and back are made of a wavy, pleated cotton that feels as welcoming as a comfy sweatshirt but looks polished enough for any occasion. The sleeves are flat cotton to make it easier to layer and take on and off as the day demands. Two deep pockets—a detail that cardigans often lack—will constantly come in handy.
We like pairing this US-made topper with lighter pieces from our Crinkle Cotton Collection to create an any-season ensemble that truly embraces the power of the pucker.
I live everything about this jacket with the one exception being the sleeve length. It is not long sleeve but not 3/4 either. Somewhere in between which makes it look like it shrunk or my arms are super long. Even going back to look at the model, the sleeves don’t look long enough if looking specifically for that detail. I hope they fix this I. The future then I will order again. It’s easy to roll sleeves or tuck under but impossible to stretch and maintain properly. Always better to go a little longer than skim and have no opportunity to problem solve.
This cardigan is so beautiful and well made! Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size and need to return it for a smaller size. I like this type of clothing to be loose, however this cardigan is fitted through the shoulders and needs to be your correct size.
It is important to me to wear clothing that is 100% natural fiber. The Welcoming Waves Cotton Cardigan caught my eye because it was beautiful. I bought it because it was 100% cotton. With trepidation, I put the garment through its first wash following the directions. It came out beautifully--no small feat for a 100% cotton garment!
