Ruffled Boiled-Wool Walker
I purchased this in the black, and used the size chart. It fit perfectly. It is a cross between a sweater and a jacket because it is unlined, and less rigid than it appears in the photo. This said, it is boiled wool, and I find it fairly ?scratchy" so I only feel comfortable wearing a top underneath with full-length long sleeves. I have several blouses and sweaters with three-quarter length sleeves, and this jacket does irritate my arms when I wear those. I would not have bought it if I knew that it was unlined, but I am glad I did. The jacket looks very nice on and, on sale, it was an excellent buy!

Beautiful Jacket but ran small in upper arms /back
I wear a size 12 but have broad shoulders. Love the ruffled boiled wool jacket, but had to send it back because it ran a bit too tight in the upper arms and shoulders across the back. The purple is a fabulous color so I am sorry it wasn't available in a 14. I continue to order from Appleseed's.

Very stylish . Have it in black and looks dressy as well as a perfect fitting jacket. What a great buy!

Nice jacket but runs small
I'm on the larger end of "medium" and my jacket is a little snug right now #but I'm on a diet so I will be keeping it#. I got the "petite" since I am only 5' tall and the jacket and sleeves are both a good length. The teal color is really pure & beautiful and the workmanship appears to be good. I was concerned about the ruffle feature and whether it would seem like "too much" but now that I have tried on the jacket I like the ruffle and it doesn't get in the way at all. I have already found a complementary wool pashmina to wear with the jacket so I am "almost" looking forward to the cold weather.
