Pointelle Sweater Hoodie
Beautiful, but the snags...
I wore this sweater once, just to do the school run and buy groceries. By the end of the day it was so snagged I couldn't wear it again. It is so soft and beautiful but not suited for wearing around town. Pity.

As advertised, fits well, have not yet washed; but overall pleased, especially since got it on sale.

After one wear, the sweater pilled and looked like I had worn it 50 times. Would not recommend.

Very comfy and soft. It is thicker than I expected. The V is not as deep as it appears on the model, which I am glad of. It looks good with a tank top underneath it. I tried a long sleeve and it takes some adjusting, but it works well too. I am normally a size small too and it fits perfectly. At postpartum, I am a little larger , but the cut is forgiving enough that it still fits and looks good. I can see that if I ever do loose the baby weight, it will still look good. I got this sweater in black and aubergine to see which would flatter me more. I fell in love with both and will keep both. This is my first time ordering from Hanna for myself, and I am extremely happy with the quality of the clothing.

I had no intention of purchasing this sweater but the positive reviews and a great price offer had my interest peaked. I was sold as soon as I put the sweater on. It is so comfortable and looks great, too. I agree with other reviewers who have said it looks exactly the way it does on the model. I ordered the grey and I wear it over the black Pima cotton tank since the v neck line is so low. I just ordered it in the black as well. I purchased my usual size, XS, 33-26-36.

Some seams are sewn wrong
I did not notice at first, but a few seams are sewn together incorrectly. The sleeves at the shoulder seam have the raw edges on the outside. It is not like that is the look the style is going for because most of the seams are correct. I considered sending it back in case I got a defect, but looking closely at the picture here, I can see the same problem exists. If one seam ought to be reversed, it should have been the neckline with the hood since it lays open. Other than that, it has all the qualities I appreciate from Hanna.

Looks exactly as pictured online
Got it in black. Great fit. Looks even nicer without tank top worn underneath.

Depends on the color you get
I purchased this in grey and black in xs. I ended up returning the black because the way the 'holes' of the pointelle stretch on the top of my arms made my arms look unflatteringly enormous (I'm 120 lbs). The grey color, probably as it is lighter, did not do that.
The look is nice on the grey color but, although it is pretty roomy, I can only fit a tank top underneath (rather than a long sleeve shirt) and, for chillier weather, the 'holes' of the pointelle allow a lot of air in. Overall not the greatest of the hanna clothes I've enjoyed but it's okay.
