Rated 2 out of 5Â by cme05 So, SO disappointed
I was terribly excited about this jacket, and it was such a let down. Though the color matches the picture perfectly (i got it in green/gold), the coat just felt like a pile of fabric. It had no shape of its own and was really big. The XS fit like a medium. I'm so bummed and I really wanted to love it, but when I hold it, it just feels like a thin theater curtain. Maybe it looks better with blonde hair..
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ShabbyGypsyCowgirl So very soft and lightweight
First, love love love this supersoft, velvet duster. I am 5'2 and had no problems at all with the length. So you short ladies don't be afraid to order. Even the sleeves ffit nicely. The only bad thing is ithe snugness in the upper top arms as other views have mentioned. I do work out so thought that could be an issue but other ladies are reporting the same thing. So you might consider sizing up especially if your looking at wearing long sleeves..Just a word of caution! The color of the moss is a neutral one..more like a warm dark brown. Not a hint of green at all except the inner liner..I looked at it in several different lightings..Definitely brown not green. I was told it was olive green..notta! I ordered both colors and the teal is not teal but purple...These are keepers. Wished they had golden camel color, black and a olive green in this..Would have bought them for sure..Don't know why anyone would think the moss was green. Nothing golden about the moss. It's dark brown..I oredered mine from a FP store unseen until today..
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ginabf still waiting on the moss.....
i ordered the 'TEAL' which is purple. i thought it was too wizard-like, as another reviewer metioned...i ordered the moss a few weeks ago and am still waiting...disappointed...the jacket is a nice soft velvet - think of it as a long blazer not a coat.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Moury not what I was expecting...
I agree with a previous reviewer about being disappointed upon receiving this duster. I ordered it in the golden moss color and it was exactly the same color as displayed in the online pics; however, I felt like the lining and overall material of the duster was TOO THIN! I know that velvet can feel much thicker and it may be due in part to the super thinness of the lining, but I will have to be returning the duster just because of this. I wanted a coat that I could wear when the weather would get colder and this duster definitely can't do that for me.
Also, I would suggest ordering a size down than you normally would unless if you like your coats to have a "roomy" feel.

i got the purple -- color is as shown -yes this does run a bit tight in the arms as some reviewers have said , so I ordered a size small to avoid this & i could see how it did run a tad tight but it isn't anything that would have made an xs not work for me --, its perfect an xs would have been fine as well but i personally wanted some room - i love this jacket it isn't heavy and it wont keep you warm but it will make a great addition underneath any coat in cool weather and a nice addition to any outfit
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rozlin_ Beautiful fabric
This is a beautiful duster but when I tried it on I noticed it was hard to move my arms around. It's not really so much that the sleeve is tight, it's more that the upper back of it is constricting while the rest of it is kinda loose and flowy. I decided to keep it because the fabric is gorgeous. I got the Merlot and it's like the deep wine color. Lacking a little in design/ construction, though.

I had been pondering on whether to purchase this after reading reviews that this item is a bit tight in the arms. I finally broke down and bought it as a Christmas gift to myself and those reviews were right....snug in the arms *sigh*. I am keeping the blazer as, even though it does not fit me YET, I love it and will use this as a motivator to lose those extra pounds that I have been meaning to do for too long ;)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by akire32 lovely jacket, but was sent different color.
I saw that this jacket had one left in stock in XS so I snapped it up. Although I ordered the deep teal color, I was sent a purple. Initially I was disappointed because teal is my favorite color, and I already have a purple duster jacket (although not velvet)...clearly it was the only one left and there was no use trying to exchange for a teal one.
I'm 5'2" 110lbs petite and curvy, and the XS is slightly tight in the shoulders, but can still comfortably accommodate a light cardigan underneath. The color is nice and the velvet is incredibly soft.
