I bought this sweater in rust and sage and I absolutely love them. The neck line is perfect. Sometimes the boat neckline can be sloppy, but not this one. I am 5'3'' and I did not find the fit too long, at all. The sweater is a perfect length for tights and the rounded hem is really flattering. The bonus is the incredibly soft texture of the sweater. I am so very glad I bought these items to add to my Fall/Winter wardrobe.
