I am usually not a carigan person, at all, but this one is awesome!! I ordered this lovely Cardi in taupe last month.... I love the color, how it's so soft, and adore the draping pockets & high low unfinished hem. The best thing is that it is such a versatile piece: It can be worn open over your clothing, as a dress, with a waist belt, as well as under a sweater or vest. I am 5'6.5 33-24-35 111 lbs, and wear the XS. The waist is pretty loose, the sleeves are very fitted, and the color is true to the FP catalog images ... it actually fits me exactly like the model on the editorial beach photo. My favorite way to wear it is: as a dress with a faux fur vest, FP tall socks & boots. *see photos* My socks in the photo are the FP Speckled Spun Tall Sock in ivory.

I think the last reviewer missed the point of this cardi.... it's supposed to be slightly unfinished and carefree. That's the point! To feel effortless and breezy. To me, the unfinished hem is one of my favorite features... it actually accents that California cool feel.
That being said, I don't find the fabric "cheap" at all. Again, they missed the point. It's meant to be lightweight and airy. You can throw it on and layer it all four seasons of the year. That's why I love it so much, especially living in "griddle an egg on the sidewalk" Texas.
In fact, because it is so lightweight, I was really concerned that it would easily lose it's shape.. I have a tendency to run my favorite items into the ground. I've worn this thing obsessively.. rolling sleeves up, down, folding them... worn it as a layer, as a dress... no matter what I do, the fabric pulls back and retains its shape... which in such expensive products is a big concern.. you want longevity.
In the six months or so that I've owned this, I have probably gotten a year or two's worth of wear out of it, and I'm tempted to repurchase it in the same colors I already own just in case they stop producing it! Ha.
Also: I work as a fashion photographer, and I have consistently received compliments from stylists, models, and art directors about this cardigan. I think because it is so lightweight it seems to "go" with so many more things than some of my heavier cardigans. It's just such a breezy layer. And I've found that it looks great with jeans and a vintage t, with sundresses, with maxi dresses, with leggings... even as it's own dress (albeit with a layer because its too sheer otherwise.
This is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing I've bought. It just adds such an effortless cool to so many outfits and it's so comfy.
If you want something that looks great but like you "aren't trying"... then get this. Super versatile. Lightweight. I love the flutteryness of that fishtail hem.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by kaitybeth Couldn't love it more
I really couldn't love this cardigan more if I tried. It's so comfortable and flattering!! I bought this size small in the taupe colour (I'm 5'10 and roughly 135 pounds) and it fits perfectly. The sleeves are the perfect length and you can wear a long sleeve top underneath without it looking bulky. It's quite long at the back so if you're shorter it may go quite close to the ground. This cardigan is perfect for those not too warm days. I bought the navy colour and am anxiously waiting for it's delivery!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by dbee Yay, it's not too long for us short girls!!
This cardi is soooo freaking comfortable and absoutely adorable on. I got the navy color and was very happy that as a girl who is barely 5'4" it did not hit the floor. Don't get me wrong- the draped back is definitely on the long side, but totally doable for us shorties. I only wish FP would start making their beautiful long dresses and skirts to fit us too!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by sueandnick1 Good wardrobe staple.
I am 167cms, 35 inch or 88cm bust, 55kg or 123 pounds. Xs or small in tops, 26/27 inch in jeans and 2 in dresses.
Purchased this in a small, thank god I did not purchase the medium as I thought.
Pockets sit right on the hips so add a bit of width there nothing to drastic though. Great length and the colour Cranberry is as pictured.
As others have mentioned this will not keep you warm however will be a great layering piece. Will most certainly purchase another colour. No problems with tightness in the sleeves.

I received the cardigan in the mail yesterday without ever seeing it in the store...and I just couldnt get excited about it! I am a FPaholic..and this is the first item I have ever returned. I see 104 reviews of other people who love it...I just felt frumpy in it and it was way thinner than I had anticipated. I live in Canada and was hoping it would provide a bit of warmth...but it is definetely a summer sweater. I took it to the store and exchanged it for something I knew I would wear and not just hang in the back of my closet...
Rated 5 out of 5Â by AmandaKLamb I've Finally Found the Perfect Cardigan!
I'm a pretty tall girl - 5'8" that is mostly legs and my arms are pretty long too. I always have issues with cardigans and their sleeves being too long. Not with this cardi!! :) The sleeves are long-ish and I love them that way. The material is a little sheer, but not too much. I just love how the "train" moves when I walk - I get compliments on the cardigans all the time. I currently own the ivory, black, and fatigue, and I will certainly be getting more. Well done Free People!! :)

LOVE this item, I happened upon it in the store and immediately after picking it up, one of the sales women, commented on how much she loved hers.
I tried it on and I was sold. I put it right on after I bought it, and from that point on, I received compliment after compliment all day long (no exaggeration.) On multiple occasions on person's compliment triggered another person's who was in earshot. The cut is very flattering and sliming instead of frumpifying. It's soooo very soft and comfortable , and I'm absolutely thrilled, that I bought it!! the knit is form fitting but has lots of give, so I will be treating it carefully so that I don't stretch it out.
