Rated 2 out of 5Â by bostonstyle SO SAD....
....i dont need to write anything but....i agree with all the reviews...i'm so sad. thought it would work for me cuz i have broad shoulders....but....not so much. If it werent so wide and "stretchy" (i guess thats what it is)...it would be perfect....but its heavy and stretches so easily...and it already starts huge, falling off both shoulders, never mind one! :(....so sad.....

I love cropped length tops. I love crochet, especially open weave crochet. I love super oversized, off the shoulder, beachy looking sweaters. I fell in love at first sight with this sweater as soon as it was online, but missed the first sell out. I placed my order for the second batch, but my order was cancelled in error during the system upgarde and CS was no help. I continued to stalk returns daily until I nabbed one in Feb. What a let down! I ordered the natural in XS/S, even though I am solid M in FP tops. The color was as others have described (a true natural, not grey looking as in the catalog) and the yarn buttery soft, but that is all the positive things I can say about this sweater. I did not get one of the cropped length sweaters. Mine was obviously worn by someone else before it was returned, as it was stretched out down to the mid thigh. The stitches were coming undone in several places, making it obvious that it was only a matter of time before I would be left with a ball of yarn if I kept the sweater. I returned it without hesitation even though I was sad at the loss of the "idea of loving this sweater". It could have been such a great piece. Boo!

Girls I love, love, love this gorgeous soft sweater. I usually order large due to my wide shoulders, but this time I ordered both sizes to see which one worked better. The large was tooooo big, but the small fit beautifully. I ordered the ivory and green color. The material is soft and so cozy. I layer it with everything and really think it's a great find. This is NOT form fitting, so do not order it if you want a sweater that fits you perfect. This sweater is supposed to flow, just like it does pictured on the model. It runs LARGE.... Remember that when ordering. Thank you Free People.

this sweater is huge and grows as the day goes on. has anyone attempted tossing it in the dryer for a minute? i'm scared to run the risk of ruining it because i do love it...
Rated 2 out of 5Â by thisiskris10 really pretty but very big
without a doubt this is a beautiful sweater, but it is entirely TOO BIG. i put it on and it nearly fell right off. i decided i really loved it too much to send back, so i decided to sew some of it inwards to take up a bit of room. now it fits pretty well and it still looks great. i plan to sew the sleeves up next because i can't keep them rolled up. but after all these adjustments, i feel the top will be perfect. no idea how they got this to look the way it does on the model.
on another note, if fp tries to make this again, just slightly less oversized, i'll definitely buy it. especially in the beigish color.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by FPKaylashay Very Disappointed
When I received the December catalog I fell in love with the entire ensemble that showcased this sweater. I also purchased this item before any reviews were given. This sweater will not stay on your shoulders unless you are extremely broad, and even then I don't think it will help. If you try to wear it off one shoulder, you have to roll the sleeve so your hand can function. I tried to manipulate this sweater in any way possible, but it just didn't work. Free People has never steered me wrong before, but this one is a definite thumbs down.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by p1gp3n love! for wider shoulders
yes, this is a very oversized sweater. it's very roomy and have very loose sleeves. it's exactly why i love it. it is probably meant for people with wider shoulders, so that it won't slide right off. i think the first picture of the olive color depicts the fit the best. i love the natural off-shoulder effect i get with it (for comparison, i didn't get the off-shoulder with the centered pullovers without sizing up). i also like the material. i like the soft yarn which makes it more drapey, and the silhouette it creates. it's also sufficiently warm. i'm normally a medium, but i was worried that the xs/s would be too short, so i got the m/l, i probably could have sized down, but i'm fine with it still. like other people have mentioned, the natural has brown threads, and the black has white thread throughout.
