Rated 3 out of 5Â by emilie_morehead Wanted it to be love...but...
I eyeballed this top for quite a while. I had noticed that the reviews weren't all that great so I never purchased it till it went on sale. When I received it, I loved the look & feel of the top... Until I tried it on. It was just really unflattering & big on me. For reference, I'm 140lbs, 5'7, 34B
Rated 4 out of 5Â by suzay A different look
The material is thick like another reviewer mentioned, but I actually like it. The body fits very big, but not something sizing down would fix. It's different, but I like it. The ivory isn't very see through, and embroidery is very pretty. A steal at the sale price! I wish I also got the other colors while they were available.

I wear this top as a dress layered over slightly longer slips & it is the cutest thing ever!! I bought this in the white colour in an XS & it looks lovely paired with a dark jacket & docs. I would recommend this top to anyone, great addition to my free people collection.

First item I have ever returned...anywhere! Huge disappointment. It added 10 pounds to me and made me look like i was standing in a ditch. Fabric was thick and heavy. ugggg!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sofia33 Not what I expected either..But not bad!
To be honest, I wasn't drawn to this top in the studio photos but loved it in the Rambling Rose shots with gypsy jewelry. I expected it to be a soft, lightweight gauze material that flowed nicely but it's nothing like that. It is gauze-like material but it's on the thicker side, a bit heavier than expected and definitely oversized. Must size down! I usually wear a size small in FP (5'4", 130 lbs, 34B) but I had to go with the XS and it's still bigger and bulkier than I'd prefer. The studio shots look like they were taken with a different top, as the fit appears slimming and fitted around the waist with a slight flare at the hips. In reality, it almost fits like a baby doll top and is longer than what is shown in the studio shots. I'm giving it four stars because I really like the lace insets at the shoulders and center bib and the layers. Very romantic top.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by birdmom Love it!
I loved this top so much after trying it on that I bought it in two colors - ivory and black. I just couldn't make up my mind. I had no trouble getting my head through the neck hole, and love the way it hugs through the bustline and then gently flairs out. The layers are light and gauzy, and the overall fit is extremely flattering. A feminine look for a warm summer evening or day.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by elizabita09 Not what I expected
I have been obsessed with this top ever since I saw it on the website. I went to my local FP and tried it on and it was not at all what I expected it to be. This top does not fit anything like it looks on the model. It was way too baggy and unflattering. I tried on both the M and S, and despite the body being huge, I could barely fit my head through either of the neckhole openings. This was going to be my first FP purchase, and sadly I did not purchase this top.
