Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tillystar Odd, yes, but unique
This hoodie does have an odd shape which is a shame, because it is a unique design and the Sequioa colour is gorgeous (not quite like on the photo, as is often the case with FP). I am keeping it because it is so unusual and beautiful, but there are some significant negatives.
Very tight sleeves - this is often the case to some extent with FP but usually it isn't an issue due to stretchy materials - this however isn't stretchy so for me, sleeve length dictated which hoodie to keep.
I got a medium and a small, I am 5'10 and about 62kg and am usually a small to medium.
The medium, which is the one I had to keep due to the sleeve issue, is huge in the body. I don't mind boxy, but zipped up it is not that flattering. Again with the material, this isn't a flowy top so it doesn't fall nicely when oversized, it just kind of sticks out, especially at the back which is all crocheted. I am mystified by the pictures, The model manages to fit a jumper underneath, yet it looks very fitted in the body - even the small wasn't that fitted on me with just a t-shirt underneath, but the sleeves would no way have allowed even a thermal underneath, and I don't have big arms.
That said, open it looks cool and it's good for layering - I can fit a Kyoto thermal underneath in the medium and they look great together, it also looks good with pretty much anything - a dress, a slimfit t-shirt, jeans, a pretty skirt - so because of the versatility and the lovely colour, which is more brownygrey with a leaning towards brown, and darker than on the picture, i am keeping it. The hood is generous which is a huge plus - so many hoodies have tny useless hoods!
If this was better made in body I would have bought the blue too, even though it is pretty overpriced.

Quite an odd fit, short at the front, long at the back, very loose and doesn't fit to your body... I'm quite small, so it swallowed me whole! The idea was great, but the execution was not great for me.... Had to return it, shattered, I was so excited!
