Rated 2 out of 5Â by erikas2727 Dark Royal = Navy
I am generally obsessed with FP cardigans and sweater jackets but this one just didn't do it for me :( I thought the stripes would be more vibrant, but when it arrived, it was really just a long navy cardigan...not as 'royal' as i had hoped. Also, i ordered a Medium because in the past, some of the sleeves on the knit cardis can be tight/short...but i thought this actually ran a bit loose/big for their typical size Med.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Alw-k Beautiful but I feel like Hansel and Gretel.
As the previous reviews have stated, this sweater is super soft and roomy. Although it is thin, it is very warm, perfect for cool sunny days of autumn or even cooler summer nights.
I am 5'7" and the length is perfect for me, hitting just below my knees. I ordered an XS (I have a very tiny frame for my height and no bust at all!) It is still large enough to wear thin layers underneath but does not look frumpy. I ordered the dark royal and the color is a darker blue than in the picture but still gorgeous. If you look closely at the photos, the shoulder seams hit low on the model as well, so this is supposed to be a roomier fit. However, I would suggest sizing down if you prefer a tighter fit.
The pockets are great. I wear this on walks and to class and although slouchy, the pockets hold money, lip gloss and other small items without weighing the sweater down too much.
The MAJOR complaint I have is the bottom raw edge. I almost gave this 4 stars but as others have stated, the raw edge is problematic. I like the look but I am leaving little strings every where I go. I feel like if I get lost I can just turn around and follow my strings home again. The sweater is really nice in theory, just be prepared for the trail you will leave wherever you go. It is rather annoying.

So I saw this and when I tried it on, I instantly fell in love with it! It's so comfortable and versatile because I'm wearing it now in the summer ( think cool breezy afternoons after a splash ) and I know I can wear it in the fall as well, the material is so soft, the only thing is that it can tear easily at the end so it's something you'd have to be careful with all the time
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lunaleaf Perfect everyday cardi
well i am so glad that i got this. it is high quality, soft, silky material. i am a true size small in free people. i pretty much always go with size small, even if it is designed to be really oversized and roomy. i had a feeling this cardi would be an exception, that i would want to size down to an XS. i have the "ribbed up maxi cardigan"
and have worn it to death... i wanted this cardi to fit more like the ribbed up so i sized down. and am glad i did, the XS is a perfect fit. the arms are more fitted and the body is not so oversized. So if you want the oversized look go with your normal size. if you want a more regular fit, size down. I am 5'5" and 130lbs 34B chest, sz XS worked perfect.

I just purchased this in store over weekend --- fatigue color. It will be perfect for cooler summer days.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by kristinmichelles Falling apart after worn once
I instantly fell in love with this cardigan. It is so soft, so comfy, and super cute. In fact, it would probably be by far my favorite fp purchase....except the entire thing is unraveling from the bottom, string by string. And I have only worn it once. When I wore I kept stepping on little strings, which would have been funny if I hadn't just spent over $100 on those strings. I guess I could try to reinforce the hem, but I am not a seamstress at all, and would probably make things worse. I am so bummed. Wish I had spent my money on something I could actually wear without ruining it. I don't even know how to rate it. It would be a 5 if it wasn't slowly shrinking, one string at a time.

In love with this cardigan! BUT it threads at the bottom even after just one wear. I have returned it for a new one TWICE and I am still not satisfied with my purchase. Definitely not worth the over $100 I paid, unfortunately.

I absolutely LOVE this sweater. I got it in the moss green. It goes with everything I have. I can wear it with long skirts, short skirts, shorts - very versatile. It's light weight - the perfect summer cover up. Especially when you go in places that have the air conditioning set on subzero! I bought it in small, I'm 5 foot 3 and it is perfect in length. I really love wearing it.
