Not My Favorite
I read the reviews but ordered it anyway. As reviewed previously, this cardigan is extremely thin...even more than I had imagined. The arms are super tight and super long and the body of the sweater itself gets static cling and has an unflattering fit. This one is not for me.
It's nice, but....
First of all I would like to say that I love this cardigan, in theory. I bought it in 3 different colors, I liked it so much! I love how flowy it is and the way it drapes is very flattering. I also love the extra extra long sleeves. The only problem for me is the material is incredibly delicate. You just look at it and it snags. 2 of the 3 I bought arrived with holes already in them, before I even put them on and the first time I wore them it snagged on everything creating huge holes and runs. It is a good thing I am a creative seamstress, I just back the holes with some lace and sew it in place so it looks purposeful and it stops the run from going further. If you get this cardigan, you must be ok with holes in it. It is inevitable, unless you live in a bubble.
Nice cardigan but fabric is very thin!
Bought this in black a few weeks ago and I loved it! However this morning when I grab it to wear it I notice that it has a hole in the sleeve. I have use it just once! I am quite disappointed because for the price I was expecting better quality.
not the best choice for petites
I was pretty sure when I ordered this that it was going to be long on me, but I was hoping the fit would be good otherwise. I'm 5' tall and usually size XS or S in FP, and since the sleeves looked snug I tried this in the mushroom in S. The color is nice and would be a good neutral, and I loved the weight of the fabric for summer. It fit fine in the shoulders, and the sleeves were snug but not super tight. I had read that the sleeves were really long, but I was unprepared. They're not just really long, they're insanely long. If I don't push them up, they hang about a foot past the ends of my fingers. I looked like I had tentacles. The sweater itself was also very long. In back it hit a couple of inches above my ankles, but in front it puddled up on the floor, Even in high heels, it was still too long in front. I had entertained the thought of just cutting it off, since it does have a raw hem, but I'd have to cut so much off the sleeves and the hem to make it work, I just couldn't justify paying full price. I wanted to love this one but I think it's better suited for someone tall. I wish FP would make a similar sweater in a mid-thigh length.
The jacket feels like a cardigan version of nylon stockings. It's a stretchy, very lightweight material - as is evident from the photos. I'm 5' 4" and the length oddly is similar to the model. I got the Mushroom color and the photos are pretty spot on as far as the shade. Positives: it's pretty flattering and slimming. And very stylish. It kinda has the affect that wearing a scarf has - it adds panache to your outfit. Negatives: the material will snag easily. It's delicate. I wouldn't expect long life from this - maybe a season or two. The raw edge cut looks choppy and amateurish. The sleeves are esp ridiculously long. But the overall length is also too long on my frame, making it look costumey and I'd need to have it recut. Verdict: I'm waffling on this one. Not sure.
Lovely and flattering
I have this in the black and mushroom. I'm usually an XS and felt this ran true to size, though you could probably size down on this. It's very lovely and delicate, and I feel rather regal wearing it. It hits close to the floor on my 5'7 frame. Certainly a warm-weather piece. I think it's awesome!
so many comments
I love wearing this I get so many comments, I was told I looked like a queen, and then I was told I looked like a rockstar. I love how beautiful the fabric is, and I love the way it flows. Great to dress up with, but also looks fantastic with a pair of jeans
Lovely but the fabric is too thin
I am a long cardigan junkie and I have several from FP but the fabric is just too thin on this one. The first time I washed it (by itself on a gentle cycle in a machine with no agitator) it has little holes all over it and the hem and sleeve ends frayed into a stringy mess. I know it says hand wash however, I haven't found too many fabrics that can't go into a machine, with extreme care, until now. If this had washed well I would have given it a great review because it is comfortable and stylish. Now I will see if my seamstress can work magic in repairing it.
Wish I bought it in black too
This sweater is really amazing. It goes with so much. I currently have the cream version. The black version would be perfect to wear over some of the slip dresses on chilly nights. I ordered a medium in this before I lost weight. Now I'm a size 8, 37 in the chest and 5'9 and it seems the medium still fits. The arms are VERY long and fit tight. However its not to the point where it's uncomfortable since the material is like a burn out T-shirt material where it's a little see through, but you definitely can't wear another long sleeve item under it. Anyway, I think I will order the black as well.
I am so glad to have bought this piece. It is very long, delicate and filmy fabric. It's a great topper for long spaghetti-strap dresses and the super long sleeves add to the faerie-like vibe that you feel while wearing it. I hope FP would make more like these!
