Future Heirloom Piece To Cherish
This jacket combines classic linen (always wrinkley--it JUST IS) with spandex for lots of give--fantastic! Most importantly, it has flattering seaming and shaping. The color is called "eggshell", but the X-Small I bought is creamy with a pale-buttery-yellowish cast and measures as follows: Front Length = 27 & 1/2", Back Length = 23 & 1/2", Chest Circumference = approximately 47" (doesn't close), Upper Sleeve Circumference = 12 & 1/2", Sleeve Length = 24", and Shoulder Width across back = 15". Wear it now, wear it forever.
So soft, flowing and comfortable. The picture does not do this jacket justice. The ruffle in the front is just beautiful. I may buy a second. I bought the Ivory. I also bought one for my daughter's birthday.
I normally am an L in Free people jackets. I bought the L in this one, and it is huge! Perfect for layering, but if you want it at all fitted anywhere, I'd recommend going one size down from what you normally wear. Otherwise I love the eggshell color, it layers really well with everything I have. My only other complaint is it gets wrinkled and stays wrinkled - it took a lot of effort to get the wrinkles to go down.
Had to have it!
Just purchased this jacket in taupe, and plan to wear it all spring and summer for work, play and anything else I can think of! It runs slightly fuller than other FP jackets, but that's the way I like 'em. I generally go for medium in sweaters and shirts, but ordered this in large, so as to have extra room in case of layering in cooler temps. It has a bit of stretch, which is always a blessing, so it adapts nicely to one's movement. The color is a wonderful neutral, which looks great with basics like black and white, or with bolder shades. I've been disappointed with several of FP's more structured jackets in the past, but I find the unstructured nature of this piece very flattering, and the drape in the front to be extremely graceful.
This is a really beautiful piece. It's thin enough to wear indoors, though I imagine it will also be great for a cool spring or summer evening as well. Fits true to size - I'm usually a small or medium at FP. I got the medium because I plan on layering it and I wanted a more flowy look, though the small also looked nice! Definitely would recommend this one! :)
