Factory warmspun intarsia big bow sweater (HO13, 06187, $88) runs XXS – XL. The color choices are black ivory (BIV) and navy ivory (NIV). 375 viscose, 35% nylon, 28% merino wool.
Size S – This is navy. Size S was fine. TTS, imo. The bow is cute. J Crew & navy. It’s very, very dark. It didn’t quite look black, though.
I passed on this one. I’m still disappointed in last year’s Factory bow sweater that looked really bad after only 1 or 2 wears. This year’s has the same blend. I’ll be curious to hear how it performs.
The navy stitching peeks thru the white a little bit. It’s not a drawback. Just pointing it out.
Size S – This is black ivory.
Factory printed pencil skirt in stretch cotton (37532, $85) comes in navy geo & navy lines. 98% cotton, 2% spandex, unlined. The stock pic is navy lines. The print also comes in Crewcuts geometric boatneck dress ($59.50).
Size 6 – This is the navy geo print. This size felt big in the back from the thighs down. I think the way to go is take the smaller of your J Crew sizes if you’re in between. It’s a stretch cotton.
I thought the sweater & skirt were cute together. Different.
Pencil skirt in black watch plaid ($89.50) – This print looked nice irl. Just like it does online. I didn’t try it. Without stretch, I would expect to be a 6 in this.
