I bought this in navy and cream in March, after seeing it on-line and falling in love with it, despite the horrible reviews. I thought I could be careful, and not sit on the bottom, which would prevent it from unraveling...WRONG! Went to dinner with friends and by the end of our meal, it was literally hanging by a thread on the left arm! So beautiful but such a piece of garbage! Don't waste your money - so disappointed! FP how can you continue to sell this item given all of the complaints about it falling apart, no matter what the pattern is??! Would love to see it made in a different fabric or from a supplier that can insure it won't fall apart upon wear!

I have always adored Free People clothing from afar. I finally decided to splurge and make my very first purchase! As soon as I opened the beautiful package, I was in LOVE! This piece is truly unique, light, easy to wear and just stunning. I wore it today and after about an hour, I realized that the sleeves had torn down the seams about two inches!!! I took it off immediately. Now I'm nervous that if I wear it and actually leave my house, it might fall to pieces! Beautiful but very poorly put together. Not sure if I'll be spending any more money on this site but I'd definitely steer clear of this kimono!

I purchased this kimono in a blue pattern over the summer..it was absolutely beautiful however, after wearing it as a kimono once, one "sleeve" tore apart..soon enough the other began to tear ..I ended up tearing the whole sleeve and now I wear it as a scarf. It makes a lovely scarf I just wish it was better made--I would have preferred to wear it as a kimono!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by nnikkisunday Love this but I have only had it for a day
So I bought this one against my better judgement after reading about other's quality concerns with this item. I received it in perfect condition and have no quality problems so far. However, I have only been wearing it for one day so far so I will have to check back in with you to let you know if it can stand the test of time. What I can tell you is that it is comfy and the color is stunning (both the black floral and the red bandana colors). Red bandana is maybe a little more peachy and subdued in person. It doesn't have the same vibrance as in the photos. The black floral one is more vibrant in person. But, both are absolutely lovely. Yes it is unfinished hem which I too wish fp would stop doing. So far no issues with the hem though. This is also not as stylized as some of fps other kimonos but after figuring out how to put it on and style it I really liked it in its simplicity. I should also note that it absolutely does not hang in the back in the same way its shown in the photos. it actually sort of has this little loop up thing because of the cut. It is still cute and attractive but it is definitely different from what is depicted in the pictures. Eventually I will try to get a picture up so you can see what it actually looks like from the back. This is also very light weight (not good if you are looking for warmth but great in warm California weather when there's only a slight cool breeze). Overall I would recommend this and I think it is a decent value given that this one is half the price of all the other kimonos on the site.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by ashleyboccuti So Disappointed!!
I bought this in the blue and white, and first off, I LOVE it. However, the first time I wore it, the arm seam on the right side ripped apart by about 7", literally 15 minutes after I put it on. Want to know what caused it? I reached over to adjust the A/C vent in my car. That's it. No warning, the seam just split open. I've never seen such shoddy construction in my entire life! Where is quality control on this?!
I know how to sew (quite well actually, and I often make my own clothing), so I attempted to repair the seam. The way it had torn though, it was very difficult, and due to the material being so flimsy I ended up with a puckered seam. Not only that, but it's already tearing again.
I don't know what to do. I'd try to exchange it, but my closest store is 30 mins away and I don't know when I'll make it back there, since I have a small child and it's not really convenient for me to take an hour round-trip drive and pay for the gas, and deal with the fussy toddler in the car, just to exchange such a poorly made item.
So overall: look/concept 5 out of 5 stars
Quality: 1 star. 0 stars if I could.

I got this for my birthday weekend, and paired it with FP high waist shorts , a FP swing tank, and FP strappy sandals....I LOVED it. Had no problems with it tearing apart. I got a compliment in the elevator from a lady who said "I LOVE your kimono, actually I LOVE the entire outfit!" WINNING!

I love free people! Buy all the time,however, this was just a piece of junk. Started falling apart immediately. I was so disappointed, many complements.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by p1gp3n bold floral print
i just recently purchased this piece, and i had absolutely no issue with the quality at all. not sure if i just lucked out or if recent batches have improved. i saw the black floral in person and was instantly drawn, and i love the bold floral print. the kimono itself fit a bit loose as expected. the hems came frayed but they were no worse after a few wears.
