Rated 2 out of 5Â by LyndieLou High price point and so so fit
I agree with other reviewers, for almost $300 this sweater is just not up to par and looks better on the model then in person. On the plus side, the colors are gorgeous and the knit is very soft and not itchy. On the minus side, the sweater is expensive and lacks the wow factor you would expect for that price. I tried it on in the store and immediately noticed that the yarn around the pocket on one side was completely pulled out and hanging down while on the other side was tightly wound. I asked if this was because it was a "floor model" and the rep said that it's the style and both sides will get that way after you wear it. If this is the case, the sweater will start to look really messy with unraveled yarn in no time. I also felt that the pockets were bulky and made my hips look wide. I have other long FP sweaters and the pockets are positioned so they are flattering, but these are not. May look good on someone really slim with no hips, but not on someone curvy unless you REALLY want to emphasize your curves!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by deerheart meh...lovely warmth but not as striking in person
wanted to find a warm hooded long cardi and decided to spring for this one after a while of contemplating. It arrived today & i am a bit disappointed when it comes to the look and styling. It is much much less striking then in the images, daylight not studio conditions this is...much more muted and the contrast in the pattern is rather fuzzy, not clear as in the images. See the collection named 'fall'' for a more representative image. Also, the styling is a little cheap, you'd expect for almost 300 after tax, that the hook that holds together the cardi in front would be a little special...but no. The sleeves are plain drainpipe style, no embellisments, you can see in third image.. It is probably a lovely warm long cardi, its thick and a bit heavy but i am on the fence of sending this back, for the money i dont think it is worth it...but that's just my opinion. It fits a little roomy, it is not tailored at all, goes kinda straight down then flares a little bit. SIze XS ends above my knees if i close it, and i am 5'4'', 105 lbs and 32C. Here are the measurements for size XS: Length 33'' Sleeve length 24'' chest (hooked) 17* hemline 22
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Usti-waya This is adorable & matches a lot in my closet!
It's true to size. The body of it seems big looking at it but it hangs very nicely both open & fastened. Make sure to order your size because the arms are slightly fitted. (If you're skinny you could size down once but if you lift at all don't do it!) The material is thick & warm but delicate & easy to snag. I had to patch mine at the bottom because one little tug from a boot buckle doomed a small square. That being said, that was my fault completely & it has never come undone through general wear. Plus, the patch only seems to make it more interesting.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by freepeoplegurl77 I Love This Sweater!!!
I have so fallen in love with this sweater. I love the color, the pattern, the length, the flow, and just everything about it except the price. It is such a versatile piece. I would love to have it for cold days at school because it would look amazing with everything. If it were not for the price I would have snatched it up in a heartbeat. I am not saying it is not worth the price because it definitely is being a teacher it is just out of my price range. If it ever goes no sell I will purchase it. The fit is a little boxy but fairly true to size, the sleeves slightly fitted. Highly recommend this beautiful sweater.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by M87R love it!!
This cardi is surprisingly warm and i was also pleasantly surprised to feel how soft it was when it arrived.
Im 173cm tall and it is a bit shorter than on the photo, it comes to a few cm above my knees. I got the small even though im usually an M and it fits perfectly, i don't have the 'bulkiness around the hips' problem that other reviewerd have mentioned and im very hip-py!
The price does seem too high for it, and the mohair #i think# is shedding and making my clothes under it a mess, however it's a very unique and beautiful cardigan with colours appearing in person just as in the photo on the website so im super pleased i bought it!

Hi I recieved my long cardy in a very wet Scotland yesterday just in time for the chilly nights & I absolutely love it. The fit is perfect on me (L) & I am a curvaceous 5'2". I agree that to wear it closed may accentuate my hips but I only intend wearing it open so I'm more than happy with it. The length is good too just below my knees. It is so soft & lovely I haven't taken it off since it arrived! Like the other reviewer I agree the hook fastener looks a bit cheap but no-one else can see it so it's not an issue. I'll reserve any opinions on value for money as that can only be determined with wear....so far so good tho :o)

I was so excited to receive this sweater but was sadly disappointed. For the price I was dissatisfied with the quality and I thought the border was black. It's actually dark blue. It fits a lot cuter on the model. I found it to be a bit boxy. Unfortunately, I returned it. I usually have better luck with FP clothing and will continue to buy from FP.
