Blue Bird Smocked Top styled by the FP Me community
I love this top. I bought it in black, and it is the *perfect* witchy style I was going for. Some reviewers mentioned that it runs small and to size up, but I ordered my normal Small (34A, 5'8" 140 lbs) and it fits perfectly. The fabric is very soft and flowy. I have long arms and the length of the sleeves is perfect, and I love the flared part at the end. The smocking is very beautiful and adds a nice texture to the bodice. So far I haven't had any issues with the hem unraveling, but I do plan on washing it gently. I have a long torso, and I do wish it was slightly longer in front, but otherwise it's perfect and I will get lots of wear out of it.
I was unsure after reading the reviews, but I really love this top. I found it to be a little loose, however, so I'm exchanging it for a size smaller. I liked the raw edge at the bottom and the overall quality.
I have received compliments on this top, and I like it a lot. Pros very nice smocking on the back. Cons, it runs very small in the bust, and the sleeves are very long. I actually like the raw hem, that's part of the look. The picture shows the two top buttons un buttoned, the reason is it runs small, if you don't wear a bra I guess you could wear it that way! I usually wear a very light Cami under neath.
This top is lovely and i adore the ragged hem. Thats what boho fashion is all about. Its very cool and looks fabulous. I bought a small and a medium and i love both fits. Though i am smaller through the chest. Its one of THE nicest and feminine tops i ever decided to purchased. I am 58 years old and love Free People style.
Underwhelming in person
The color is just as beautiful in person as in the photos. The fabric and the cut though are disappointing. It doesn't drape well at all and the fabric doesn't feel well made. I shared the same concerns as others that the rough hem will not hold up well. It runs large everywhere except the bust where it runs slightly smaller than most FP blouses. As it is, I had to return it.
Looove this top! I got the small in Aubergine which is more like a washed out shade and not as dark as pictured, but it just looks vintage and bohemian! Size is spot on, the sleeves fall perfectly just below my wrists, the neckline is not too low nor too high. I thought I would have to wear another layer underneath but I won't have to! Tried it on with a similar long necklace like on the photo and it just looks sooo fabulous!
5 stars for style...1 star for sizing
I'm not sure what it is with FP clothing but there seems to be a lot of inconsistencies with fit/size and color. I saw this in a major department store and fell in love with the mars red but they only had XS and M. The XS was too small and the woman helping me offered to bring me a S in washed indigo just for sizing. It fit PERFECT. I was in love again but not with that color. When I told her the S fit she brought me the mars red in S off the display. Again, way too small. When I held it up to the the other S the sleeves were at least two inches shorter in the mars red and the overall length was shorter. It was also tighter in the bust. I was really disappointed and am now really hesitant to purchase this online because I have no idea which shirt was sized properly. I tried on THREE size M and they were all too big so is not a mislabel. So, although I love the shirt, having to buy everything online in multiple sizes and colors to get the right fit (maybe?) is getting old. If it lasts long enough to go on sale I'll may reconsider. Too bad :-(
Just bought this and I absolutely love it! Its a teeny tiny bit hard to get my arms through but I have pretty wide shoulders so its ok. After you get it on its the most comfortable thing ever and super flattering. I wear a 32DD and got an xs but a small fit fine too
Dreadful material sadly
The actual style of this top is lovely, feminine and flattering. However, the material it is made from is really poor and after only wearing it once, there were pulls on the fabric! Not impressed considering how expensive this top is. You have been warned.
