Fit Review! Madewell Space-Dyed Maysfield Cardigan Sweater & Space-Dye Dodworth Pullover Sweater


How is everyone doing? I can't believe we're closing in on the end of January already. I haven't shopped at Madewell in a really long time. I decided 2021 should be the year of fun, since 2020 was miserable. I was looking for some colorful sweaters to brighten things up and these two space dye pieces caught my eye. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops, in Madewell this translates to size XXS.

It turns out, Madewell runs large. I wasn't sure if I would fit the XXS when I placed my order, but there was plenty of room in this pullover sweater. The fit is boxy, and slightly cropped in the front and longer in the back. This is a light weight wool sweater blend . The sleeve length is just a little too long, but not awful. I really loved the gorgeous colors of this sweater, but found the wool to be very itchy and staticky. I didn't want to have to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath this, so I ended up returning this much to my dismay as it is super cute. 

Next up, I fell in love with the autumn colors of this cardigan. It also reminded me of Mr. Rogers who I loved to watch as a kid. I'm also wearing size XXS and love the cut and fit.

This cardigan is slightly oversized and the sleeves are a nice length. I am happy to say this merino wool sweater is not itchy at all. I love the pockets and the coloring of this cardigan. I ended up keeping this one. It's currently sold out, but the style is still available in heathered colors.

I love how comfy this sweater is. The length offers full coverage in the back and a little shorter in the front. I'm looking forward to wearing this during my Zoom meetings. 😆 Madewell is having a major sale right now, I saw some pieces for 80% off. Definitely worth checking out if you're a petite size, lots of XXS left.

That's it for me! Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!


I also like the Ruffle Cardigan Sweater


  1. I love the colors of both sweaters! Interesting that one is itchy and the other not. I really like how the sweater pullover looks on you, but the bottom line is it has to be comfortable. Itchiness is definitely a deal breaker!

    The cardigan looks a tad big in my opinion but it does look so comfy! The colors are really pretty!

    1. Thanks Andrea! I like the slightly oversized look of it. And yep it really is comfy. =)

  2. I love the ombre effect of both sweaters! They remind me of sunset. I especially like the cardigan for the warm fall colors.
