"I loved this item until it fell apart after one wash.... This is not the first time ive washed an item and a button fell off instantly, or a loose thread turned into a non-existent hem. I began washing all my fp clothing together, delicate cycle, gentle detergents, ( I put this dress in a garment bag for safe measure). I Love the way fp portrays the earthy, worldly, free spirited individual that i feel reflects me. It's unfortunate, but im finished shopping online and my area merchant."
