Autumn Sweater Coat
I'm in love and very happy
Ive had my eye on this for a while, so while I was visiting in Portland I stopped in the Flanders store and purchase the black.
I love it. It does run really big. I wear a 12-14 top and can wear a medium/ large if I'm going to layer more.
I might just have to order the orange now too! It is a heavy sweater but for Texas it will be my jacket! :)

Roomy, stylish, and very comfortable
I bought this sweater coat on a splurge. I don't usually spend this much money on myself for one item, but I don't regret this purchase. I am 5'3'' and weigh 110 lbs and bought the XS. The XS is roomy, but not unflattering. It is a sweater coat that I wear over items. It is very warm and comfy. I bought the orange color, and it is bright. (I thought about exchanging it for the black, but decided to stay with the orange.) I have received lots of compliments and inquiries about where I bought it.

Disappointed. Maybe It's Me?
I was obsessed with this sweater when I saw it in the catalog. So obsessed that when it sold out in my size online, I tracked down the very last one in a store two states away. I was giddy with excitement the day that it arrived but when I tried it on, it fell short of my expectations. I wasn't ready to give up though! I tried it on with leggings and t-shirts and boots and ballet flats and nothing I tried it with made it look how I had hoped it would. It hung in my closet unworn for two weeks before I admitted defeat and decided to return it. The truth is that the material (while very heavy) feels cheap and the sweater hangs in a really unflattering way with pockets that poof out at the hips. I even bought a size down hoping it would seem more fitted, but that didn't really help. So sad that it didn't work out!

Not flattering / Too big
My Mom purchased this for me for my birthday. I received a small and it's huge on me. The sleeve length, length of the coat and I think I could fit another me in there lol. The additional buttoned pieces of sweater at the sides sag, giving a very unflattering look. I'd like to exchange for an XS but I'm thinking even that size will be too big. I loved it in the catalog, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to return this present. Don't recommend!

Beautiful sweater coat, but order a size down!
I finally decided to treat myself to this sweater coat with a 20% off sweater sale that HA offered a couple weeks back. I am a solid size S so that is the size I ordered. I am so bummed to report that it is way too big and now the XS are sold out. I am beyond disappointed because I love the sweater coat, it is beautiful. I wish I would have known how large it ran, so I wanted to let everyone else know. I am so sad that this has to go back. :(

Way too big
Ordered this in a large (Hanna's women's sizes are usually tight across the bust) but alas it is too big; shoulders sag, arms are super-long. It's so pretty, would have tried a medium, but they are sold out in Marathon already. So sad. Paid $16.95 for shipping and now have to pay to return--that's a lot to pay for the privilege of trying it on.

Adds 10 pounds
I have a heavy black cardigan that I wear constantly in the fall as a light jacket. I was hoping this would replace my old one, but sadly it will not.
The attachments at the waist sag and make my waist look bigger. They appear snug fitting in the picture but sag down on the body adding what appears to be at least 10 pounds. Not figure flattering. On the plus side it has pockets and is probably warm. But the yarn feels cheap for the price of the sweater.

The small fit like a medium or large!
I wanted to love this coat so much! Looked great in the photo! But sizing was all wrong and the Harvest color was a little off (not as yellow, more dull). I am normally a size 4-6 (5'4", slender) and bought the size Small. It was huge and the sleeves were way too long. The length was also way too long and not at all flattering. It was also VERY heavy weight. I ended up bringing it back to the store for a refund.
