Â by irina_xs Wanted to love it - so I did
This jacket never caught my eye until I saw it in my local FP store at a very good sale price. I tried it on out of curiosity, and I loved the look so much, I decided to buy it. The jacket looks really good on despite the boxy shape. It is actually flattering and feminine - it drapes nicely, and the neckline is delicate. Plus, the cream/navy combo goes into a ton of looks. However, the 'confetti' issue is there!
When I tried the cardi on at home and wore it around for a couple of minutes, I noticed that little threads and pieces were all over the room. It sheds like crazy! So I had to spend a good half an hour picking the loose/insecure threads and bits that still remained in abundance on the sweater's hems and edges. After that it's been peeling noticeably less. Other than that, I didn't like how some of the buttons were hanging unattractively loose. So I took another 15 mins to sew them in place more securely.
That little makeover made a difference, so now I have nothing to complain of (except small threads still peeling off the sweater from time to time). However, I really don't think the jacket would be worth the hassle at the original (or even the current sale) price.
Nonetheless, I like it a lot now, and I feel I'll be wearing it out much.

I never would have thought to buy this online, but I was in a FP store today and tried it on for the heck of it. It is SO cute! Very homespun looking, soft, and warm. I was really surprised by how good it looks on me - the colors are perfect and it hangs nicely. I got it a size up so the sleeves would be long enough, and the rest of the jacket is slouchy-cozy. This might be my favorite thing I've bought from FP, I really can't recommend it up enough.

I bought the
Navy/olive green ... Love color and chunky quality, fit is good but styling is not 5 star quality but a good casual piece. I found the yarns pieces that others mentioned coming off, for the most part, stop happening after you wear a few times. And 3 of the buttons have come off already...
Is over priced i believe , sale $$ helps.
All in all , for all cotton , A nice piece , better for fall and winter rather than spring , fairly heavy weight.

This sweater jacket is so soft and cozy I simply had to have it. I would say it runs slightly big but it is still very flattering both buttoned and unbuttoned. I don't feel the photo does it justice at all. It's not super heavy therefore it's perfect for layering.

sleeves on this jacket are a little short. i sized up to accommodate my long arms. If you size up, the jacket does get wider, but if your'e ok with it fitting a little baggy it will work fine. Perfect jacket for cool spring nights!

First off, this fits tts, I'm 5'6", 125lbs, 34b and the small fits me well. I ordered the olive/black, which in my opinion is more of an olive/charcoal, but I actually prefer that. It looks super cute with so many different tanks/dresses and is soft and cozy too. A lady mentioned the confetti issue... I personally turned mine inside out and threw it in the dryer (on air dry - no heat) for 10 minutes, and that took care of that. It really isn't a quality issue, and mine hasn't fluffed at all since I put it in the dryer. Overall, super happy with this purchase!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by AshLynn Too boxy!
I tried this sweater jacket on in my local Free People store. The back was pretty boxy and it wasn't something to scream about anyway. ( For reference, I tried on the XS, and I am 5'6, 115, 32A.)

This is basically a cotton version of the wool "Earned Striped Jacket," which I purchased and love, so I was SUPER excited when I saw this cardigan, a non pilling version, plus it's lighter weight so it's super versatile. It keeps me warm right now, but wont be too heavy for a cool spring/summer night or the beach! It's so flattering, I love the way it fits! It goes with pretty much everything. I don't see any issue with quality, it does have raw edges, but there is a decent hem to protect it from coming undone. i've been wearing it basically everyday for a few weeks now and it's in perfect shape! Love it!
