Silver lurex batwing jumper
On the Jane Norman website, www.janenorman.co.uk, this jumper was originally priced at £32.00, reduced to £16.00 and I bought it at £15.00 With standard delivery costing £3.95, and goods being delivered within 3-5 working days it's a good option to buy some bargains although to make the most of the postage costs I tend to buy a few things at the same time.
This is a silver lurex batwing jumper.; I kind of imagined that the fact that it was described as lurex would make it a bit cheap and nasty looking and a bit itchy, but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It is a silver grey colour with silver shimmer thread detail, which makes it ideal to wear with jeans if I go out for an afternoon meal and want to look a bit dressy but not over the top. As mentioned the sleeves are batwing style and are ¾ length which for me means that I would wear it only when the weather is warmish and certainly not in the depths of winter. It has a wide scoop neckline, allowing me to wear a scarf with the jumper without looking too bundled up, and thick ribbing on the neckline, cuffs & hem..
The jumper is machine washable, and can just be hung after washing without needing ironing and is 90% acrylic 2% metallised fibre and 8% nylon.
Available in sizes 6-16. Mine is a 10 and is true to size.
So far, so good. The jumper can be put in the washing machine without suffering damage, but the damage was already done. After wearing it only once for a fairly sedate late afternoon/early evening meal and a few drinks, I returned home to find that the ribbing at the bottom of the jumper was all coming away. Whilst I accept that if I was fairly handy with a needle and thread I could sew all of the loose stitches together, I feel this is not the issue. I didn't snag the jumper on anything and nor did it get damaged after washing.
The style is just what I was after and although I was originally pleased with the jumper, I feel I cant recommend it.
A very poor offering from a store which usually produces jumpers which last me a long time.
Thanks for reading
