Of the two sweaters I got from Makemechic recently, this burgundy one is definitely my favorite. There is always something a bit nerve-wracking about ordering a 'one-size' product. That's because it is never a 'one size fits all' size, but rather a size you basically need to figure out what 'one-size' it actually is. I subscribe to a measure twice, order once philosophy. This soft sweater was a score! I love the added length in the back, cable knit detail, and side zippers. In my opinion it is closest to a small or medium. This will definitely be a sweater I plan on wearing often. The side zippers are fun because you can have them completely zipped or you can layer a striped tee underneath and partway unzip them to show your layers!

  1. That is such a great knit! Love the colour and the zip detail. It's a really nice size on you too, an instance where "one size fits all" worked! :)
