Hey guys! Just want to share this *really* small cardigan (Merino chiffon-placket cardigan) I found at Jcrew

It actually fits me tiny! I *may* have to go size up. It hits at hip (like on the model). For reference I wear xxsp/00p, and measure at 30B, 23 waist, 32 hips, and 5'1-5'2ish. It feels smaller than the Loft Ruffle Cardigan. It's about the same thickness as the loft ruffle cardigan. Sorry for the blurry pics.

That is adorable! I love both the colour and cut. I only get down to the J.Crew outlet every few months but I hadn't had any luck and found their cardigans to fit on the larger side compared to Banana Republic.

prosephina - I love it!!! That mustardy yellow color is one of my favorites, but so hard to find in stylish petite-friendly sizes. I think I know what I'm buying soon. =)

Is that the xx-small you're wearing?

Thanks for the tip!

Sarah - I know what you mean, I had another jcrew sweater in XS but it was big and really long. But this one fits well.

Kelly - yep this is in xx-small! It's the "gold" colour, and comes pretty similar to shown on website. The buttons and button holes are on the silk trim part so that part feels really delicate, hope that will be able to hold up. I really like the silk trim though!

I just compared with the loft sweater, actually looks like about the same size. It's long sleeves though, I think loft is about 3/4 length.

Here's a blurry comparison picture. (I folded the collar down)

Prosephina - thanks for sharing! I'm really tempted to get that cardigan. What top are you wearing underneath? Is it the same color? I'm trying to figure out if the yellow ruffles I see are part of the cardigan or part of a separate item : )

Hiya PAG - the top I had on was jcrew petal stream tank in English saddle (I just tried this cardi over my day outfit for size, hadn't planned it).

Image

I think my camera did not distinguish the colors well - tank color is orange. The orange ruffles that's sticking out a little, are part of that top; the yellower ruffles are the cardigan's. The cardigan's ruffles are a little bit airy/fluffy (?!). Probably the comparison picture with the loft sweater shows all the ruffles better. The ruffles does stand up in the collar area.

Just a quickie macbook twitter pic of the xxs cardi I got in the weathered wood color!

Also wearing the xxs topaz muse tank (loves, small arm holes!) and the 00 wool bell skirt. The skirt obvs looks pretty bad so I'm returning it.

Just made a second order with the gold version of the cardigan. I flipped when it was back in stock and now it's gone again. Lol.

I'm so happy about this cardi!

I went crazy and ordered tons of colors along with the Merino Cielo Ruffle cardi that's very similar.
