I really love the design of this cardigan. It can be worn as a light layer in the spring/summer and looks good over a tank-top. The arms are gathered at the elbow joint to give a more natural drape. This item is used but has no damage. There is a slight stretching at the back of the elbows which is natural given the gathering but was caused by use, and may look unnatural if your elbow bends in a very different place than mine.
