Rated 3 out of 5Â by Whynot If You Like Surprises
Well, this one's a bit of a gamble, isn't it? Â The promise of a mystery pattern that may or may not look like the one on line, everything from 1 star to 5 stars from the reviewers, and Â reports that it Â fits small, but no info on the measurements of the m/l. Â It has "Return" written all over it. Â And if you' re from Canada, it has "EXPENSIVE Â return" Â written all over it. Â Who would risk it?? Â
Er, ahem, if you're like me, and have a problem with FPA (Free People Addiction), then you do what any shopaholic does when they love something: Â they order 2 of them.
Â I ordered both sizes in the ivory, hoping that one of them would fit and have a pattern I liked. So overjoyed when I opened the package and saw that I liked both patterns. Ecstatic when I discovered that both sizes fit me as tops and as bottoms. Â (I am 34-26-34 most days, for reference). Bonus: Â if you wear them together they look like a pretty layered dress. Â I turn the pattern of the bottom skirt to the back so it doesn't show and clash with the top. Â Interestingly, there was only about an inch/inch and a half difference in waist between the two sizes. All other measurements were the same.Â
Loved these so much I ordered another in black, and that is when the trouble started. It was good at first, as I liked the pattern a lot better than the one on line. But there was something wrong with the waistband as it didn't lie smooth. It was also smaller than my first two. And it didn't look very good on either. When I took it off, the stitching had come undone in the same spots as the other reviewer's photo shows. Had to return it unfortunately. So, the long and short of it: Â the workmanship and sizing is inconsistent. Â If you like to gamble this can be a fun purchase, especially at the sale price. If you don't enjoy surprises or returns, well, best to stay away.Â

This skirt/top is soooo coool!!!! I love it. got it in black, originally wanted the cream, but very satisfied with what i got. Luckily, when mine came in, i recieved one with a great design (multicolored & tribal stitchery). didnt have a problem with that. If you usually wear the XS/S, you might wanna think about sizing up. it was a bit of a squeeze but not completely terrible :))) I wore it as a top earlier in the fall & im excited to wear it as a skirt next spring. versatile, one -of-a-kind, worth the sale price: get em'

Â by meggies LOVE - Wear it as a shirt!
I bought this at the Free People store and I tried it on as a shirt and bought it...I didn't realize it was supposed to be a skirt until I saw it online!
It works amazing as a shirt, I got a xs/s and it fits true to size. I am 5'1 and fairly busty and I love the way it fits as a shirt! I paired it with wide leg denim jeans and brown espadrilles.
I have received many many compliments on it, each shirt is different though so they one you get most likely will look a bit different than mine or the one online.

Â by soaringinsunshine COMPLETELY DISAPPOINTED!!!
I ordered this skirt and absolutely fell in love with it at first. While the print was different than the pictures shown online, I still liked it. However after wearing it ONLY TWICE, the seams along the back have completely fallen apart. I love free people, but this quality is absolutely atrocious and unacceptable, especially for this much money. Be warned buyers, if you purchase this skirt, it may fall completely apart. This is NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

Â by briiianaaa not too pleased
When I received this skirt in the mail it was definitely not what I imagined. The detailing was a lot different then what is pictured on the model. I ended up returning it back to a FP store.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by studio Super fun!
I ordered both colors in XS/S. I am normally XS in Free People clothing. They are a bit tight the first time you put them on because of one elastic band that is machine-sewn to the back ruching (the elasticky/gathered folds in the back). After the first time, they go in and out without any problems. The embroidered pattern of each of mine is different and unique, and it is this artisanal look that makes them special and such an eye-catcher. I have got tons of compliments each time I have worn them. I love that they are very versatile: They can be worn as mini skirts, or on top of skinny pants or leggings. They also work for me as tops (for reference I am 32A). I bought the lacy knickers and wore the black ones underneath my black skirt to add just a bit of length and comfort (I want to make sure I do not show more than I should even on a windy day). I wore the white skirt on top of the amethyst tunic in white (they both are the same ivory color) with off-white tall boots and it was a big hit wherever I went. Both colors are gorgeous and easy to wear, very flattering too, they make your tummy area look flat, the small of your back is delineated and then the fabric puffs out a bit in the derriere. Again, can be worn as super cute tops too. Try them! You might be lucky and actually get a pattern that you like. I loved the ones I got so much that I had to keep both of them, and I am sure glad I did. I have worn them several times in different combinations and it is not summer yet!

I called Free People customer service and asked about the fabric on the yoke of this skirt. I was told that it would look like the one pictured on the website. This is not correct as shown by some of the other reviewers. I must have gotten lucky because the one I received is pretty close. I ordered the M/L so that I could use it as a top or skirt. The white portion of the skirt is not too sheer, in my opinion. I like this skirt and may order another in black.
