Rated 5 out of 5Â by Vallariah Better than the picture!
I've been shopping for sweater coats that I can wear over my "less warm" clothes and I came across this pesto sweater in our local FP store. At first glance, the sweater didn't catch my eye. I took it off the shelf just because it was the only sweater hanging there. And I'm so glad I did! It looks much better in person, especially when I layer it over my black lace dress. The fashionable design of the front zipper allows you to style up and down. For size reference, I'm 5'5, 120 pounds, and Small fits very well (it hangs a little above my knees).
Rated 5 out of 5Â by fair9v Great sweater jacket
I tried this on in the store. There was a huge difference in lengths between sizes. I tried on the large and the small and they didn't have medium, but the small was the length shown on the model, and the large on me came to a few inches above my knees. I'm 5'9 & truly a small so I got that one and I'm very happy with it.

I was initially super excited to come across this in the sale section at my local FP store. I've had my eye on it since it came out. Unfortunately, when I tried it on, I realized I couldn't buy it. Its so big! I understand the oversized trend, but this didn't achieve that look well. It just made me look ginormous and messy. I almost wanted to get it just cuz it was so thick and warm but ended up leaving it. Both colours are gorgeous and true to the photos. If you really must have it, I suggest sizing down about 2 sizes.

I originally ordered this jacket in the Pesto color however, when it arrived, the Oatmeal had shipped instead. I ended up reordering the Pesto but I kept the Oatmeal just in case and I'm so glad I did! The Pesto color online is darker and much nicer than the color of the jacket when it arrived. Needless to say, I returned the Pesto and kept the Oatmeal, which is much closer to the picture online. This jacket does run a little large so I recommend going down a size if you don't like the oversized looked.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by acattt So sad :(
I had my eye on this jacket for a couple weeks, and decided to take the plunge and order it online. I received it today and immediately knew I would be sending it back. The oatmeal color is great and just what I was looking for, so no complaints with that. However, the jacket is huge. I am 5'7, ~125 lbs, with a slim build, and I was swimming in this. Because of how big it is, it just hangs kinda awkwardly on my body--not flattering at all. I prefer my sweaters to be oversized, but this just didn't have that cutesy oversized look, it just appeared sloppy. The collar is awkward and doesn't sit very well. I'm so sad that this item didn't work out for me, as I was really looking forward to adding this piece to my wardrobe. Better luck next time I hope!

This sweater is delish! I love it. It is warm, cozy and will fit over a sweater or whatever I want to layer it over. I love the oatmeal color. Looking forward to wearing this!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by nikkiweeks Not same as picture.
Coveted the "pesto" for a long time only to see it in person and realize free people has a different idea when it comes to color. Pesto would fit more accurately as tree or grass green; the green you find in Spring when everything is new and fresh. Not close to the cozy hunter green in the picture. Also the pictures shows brownish color around the sleeves, collar and pockets but don't be fooled. In person, the lining is actually the same previous called "pesto" color. Whatever jacket this model is wearing, I want IT! But am yet to find it among other Cuddle Up Jackets. Major disappointment.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Jessica_C Not as great as pictured
I bought the oatmeal color and it looks...well like oatmeal, not ivory as pictured, it has some dark and yellow-ish threads which I first mistook for stains. Fit is oversized which is not surprising. I'm not a huge fan of the material, it's stretchy, itchy at first and it collects every piece of hair, thread etc that it comes in contact with. The plus side is that it is warm but I still don't think it's worth keeping it. It also doesn't have that free people charm to it-pretty much looks like any ordinary cardigan. Lastly, when it arrived it had a strange leather smell which was odd.
