Mix & Mingle Cardigan
This is a very nice looking sweater and has some nice details that are hard to see online (e.g.small square black studs, rhinestone buttons). I particularly like the fact that it is long enough for great coverage and therefore can be worn with pants: for larger gals 27-30 inches is not quite enough and I'm very happy Catherines is starting to recognize this. My only small concerns are that the sweater is somewhat thin, and the pattern, though beautiful, a little busy for a large lady. I chose to pair it with a solid black top instead of the matching shell to address this issue. Also please note that this runs quite large; I took it in a full size smaller than I normally buy and it is still relatively loose fitting (but again this is a good thing to me to avoid buttons opening when you sit down).
