I was going to order that sweater from VS for an office Christmas party and I'm so glad I saw your post! I ordered it from Alloy instead (thought about trying to recreate the pattern and then my head hurt) and was able to get that sweater and another for the same price! Yeah for new sweaters with instant gratification! LOL
OH that makes me so happy! I saved you money, what a great unexpected "pay it forward"!
I hope the Alloy quality is as good as VS...report back! ha ha
