Bare minimum of what I'd hoped for

Overall, I was disappointed with the product because of its quality. It is as described in terms of the pattern (which is the big sticking point for me -- the uniqueness of the Dewey Decimal System on a clothing item). The material is very very thin (almost transparent if you put your hand behind the fabric), and some parts of the pattern bleed into each other so that they're not easily decipherable. I do like the fit. The fit is very good, but again the thinness of the fabric contributes to its shapelessness (it is a flowing garment, but the collar flops more than I imagine it would if it were a heavier fabric). Why might I keep it? Honestly, the uniqueness of the pattern and the time & energy to return it.

Perfect layer and such a fun design!

This cardigan is one of the comfiest things I own! It is ... SO soft. The pockets are large enough to fit paperbacks, fistfuls of writing utensils, scissors, dog treats, you name it! Plus, it's the perfect extra layer. Now I'm not too cold while my coworkers or roommates are blasting the A/C, but I never overheat. I especially like the design on this cardigan. I'm a library sciences student but don't yet work in a library so it's a fun bit of personal flare. Plus, the squares are so neat that just looking at it is a treat! It also helps people get a clue about my 001.9 tattoo.
