Lovely but expensive cardigan

I love this cardigan, even better if it was hooded, but alas, at that price, there's no chance!

If anyone seems anything similar, please let me know!!

I don't like it. It looks thin and not worth the price.

HexBramble Wed 24-Dec-14 21:05:06

Definitely not worth the price!
Still love the style though.

Don't like it very much it's very thin & it just looks tatty, but even if I did it wouldn't be worth that price! Sorry...

It's handmade hence the price

A lot of etsy sellers are people who do these things as a hobby. If you calculated all your paid for work hours to the same that have gone into a handmade item you would expect more money.

I also wouldn't pay that money for such a thin cardigan but I have paid a lot of money for better quality handmade items.

No no and thrice no.

Looks like something Joe Browns might have?

Shonajay Thu 25-Dec-14 17:33:52

Religion do similar ones but thicker x

SageSeymour Thu 25-Dec-14 17:34:24

No. It's just not nice

BumWad Thu 25-Dec-14 17:35:40

It's awful. Sorry op

Forcesmum Thu 25-Dec-14 17:45:36

River island have very similar.

I'm not keen but the 6 foot blonde gorgeous Scandinavian looking assistant looked amazing in it envy

Greengardenpixie Thu 25-Dec-14 20:35:39

The OP was asking for an item that was similar but not so pricey. Interesting that everyone has given their opinions on it instead!!

HexBramble Thu 25-Dec-14 21:37:45

Pixie, thanks!
For those of you with suggestions, thank to you too - I'll investigate!

cardamomginger Thu 25-Dec-14 22:34:08

Can't think of anything similar off-hand, but I like some of the designs as well smile.

A long shot but if you're anywhere near Greenwich market in London, there's a little shop (permanent shop rather than a market stall) that sells a lot of similar cardigans and jumpers.

Otherwise, search for lagenlook cardigans on eBay and there are a few similar ones.

I'm sorry but it looks like a rag.

HexBramble Fri 26-Dec-14 08:15:48

Msfreud - thank you. There used to be a similarly sounding shop in Swansea but it's long gone now. Thanks for the suggestion - I love the occasional visit to London so will add Greenwich market next time.

Leo - thank you. That's very helpful.

All saints. Religion.

emeline Fri 26-Dec-14 08:19:12

Check ebay for all saints cardigans. Likewise religion. Asos often have religion bargains.

HexBramble Fri 26-Dec-14 08:39:24

Excellent!! Thanks.

TK Maxx often have knits like this. Probably not 100% cotton but maybe merino?
