cute but got ruined easily
I got this sweater in black for Christmas and loved its look and fit, I washed it once in cold and laid flat to dry and it was totally ruined! It got super itchy and pilled. It was one of my only Christmas presents because it was so expensive and Im really bummed I don't even want to wear it anymore.

Love it but ruined quickly
I purchased this sweater about a month ago and LOVED it! Great fit, the look is oversized so I would suggest getting a size smaller if you are on the edge. Overall great sweater, I was scared to wash because free people items often shrink so even though I wore it a few times a week I did not wash it until yesterday. I followed the instructions on the tag (hand wash cold) but it still shrunk!! Im quite upset because it is an expensive sweater for only a few uses until it is completely ruined! Im not even sure a child could fit into it properly anymore. Until this problem is fixed I would not suggest buying this sweater or maybe contacting free people with another washing solution.

I was obsessed with this sweater and about to buy more colors. So soft, so cute, a bit baggy but totally adorable. I washed it per the instructions and it totally shrunk. It looks like a child's sweater now and there is no way I'll be able to wear it. Such a bummer, I thought I found my perfect sweater. Next time I'll dry clean I guess (I hand washed).

LOVED THIS SWEATER BEFORE I HAD IT CLEANED!
I loved the fit and texture of this sweater when I purchased it. I wore it several times and thought this would be something in my closet for years to come! Well, I took it to the dry cleaners and just got it back. They insisted that they dry cleaned it! It shrank so much that it doesn't even look or feel like the same sweater! The texture is now a tight weave and not as soft as before! The tag does say "hand wash or dry clean" so either method should not have ruined this sweater! The dry cleaner has kept the sweater and says they will "fix" it. I don't think that is possible..Im so disappointed in this!! Honestly, I wear fb 5-6 days a week and have very very rarely had any issues with the things from you. Please help me to make this right!!

I LOVEDDD this sweater SO much when I first got it. I wore the ballet pink color a handful of times before I decided it was time to be washed, and that was the end of the sweater. I followed the instructions and did a handwash, but the sweater STILL shrunk and the texture is completely different. I tried stretching it back out (both dry and wet), and while I was able to stretch it a little, it's just not the same sweater and I can't even wear it. I had ordered it in black before the failed washing fiasco with the ballet pink, and now I'm afraid to wash the black one :/ so so SO sad and disappointed.

DO NOT BUY THIS SWEATER
This sweater is so cute and adorable until you wash it!!! It turns into a disgusting RAG. I am so disappointed at the quality of Free Peoples clothing the past couple of years. (Yes, I washed it accordingly to the directions) Seriously people do not buy this sweater.

Loved but shrunk
I was obsessed with this sweater. I purchased it in 2 colors. However, I washed the black one on gentle and let air dry and it shrunk. I am so sad because this was my favorite sweater after just having a baby!!!!
Gorgeous...until you wash it.
I purchased this in ballet and black while I was in the States. I wore them constantly and they were super pretty, really comfy, slouchy and warm, everything you expect from an expensive sweater. I waited until I got back to England to wash them both as I knew my washing machine had a setting that would mimic dry cleaners. They shrunk to about 2/3 of their original size. The ballet jumper more than the black (this was JUST washing on a cold setting - laying them out to dry didn't help). They're short in the arms now, and have lost all their shape. Such a shame as these were so pretty until then.

I love this sweater, it's SO comfy! As with all Free People clothes, size down- especially with this sweater. I don't normally because my motto is "the slouchier the better", but you will need to. I am 5'8", and have an athletic frame. I was almost worried that the smaller size was still too big, but it looks perfect! I got the black, and I absolutely rock it! Free People knows how to make amazing, easy, and chic clothes. J'aime cela!
Shrunk when hand washed
I had the same exact problem as another reviewer! I had bought the Ballet Pink color in a medium, and wore it at least 7-8 times with no pilling/any other problems. I handwashed the sweater in cold water, and it shrunk! Tried stretching it out, nothing. I figured that it would maybe stretch with some wear, but now it's just awkwardly small. For the price, it's just not worth it.
