Printed semi-sheer kimono with raw trim. A breezy bohemian style. *By Free People
Ripped Day 1
I wish I would have read these review before I purchased. Was in FP Store and it was an impulse buy. Within 3 hours it had ripped down the arm seam. I didn't even notice until someone told me so I know I didn't catch it on anything. Returning to store today - hope they take it back :( LOVE FP but this one was a true failure for me.
Didn't even last one day :(
I ordered this kimono in olive, even after reading all the reviews about it falling apart. I thought I could be careful, keep it at my office, just wear it at work, and it would survive. I was wrong. I took this kimono to work still wrapped in the packaging in which it was shipped to me, to be extra careful. After I sat down at my desk I carefully put it on and everything was fine. I got up to go into a meeting room, and after my hour-long meeting, stood up and noticed it was already starting to unravel. I thought I could salvage it by only wearing it when I was actually sitting down at my desk, but throughout the day it continued to unravel even more. Very bummed. I really wanted to love this because it is beautiful.
Poor quality- falls apart easily
Rarely do I ever write a negative review on FP, but this deserves it. The holes for the sleeves have already started coming apart at the seams after one week of wear. The item is beautiful but so flimsy that I cannot recommend it to anyone. I was so disappointed with the quality, even treating it gently and it just started, literally, unraveling.
Risky but worth it
So the story is that I bought a totally different kind of kimono from free people. Within the first wear it fell apart and I ended up returning the garment in search of using the money elsewhere. As I was walking out go the store I saw this kimono in the denim color(the one with the stars) and I fell in love. Unfortunately the love came with downsides. It's extremely awkward to get it to lay just right, but when it finally does, it looks fantastic. But it's also very delicate and I've gotten it caught many times on things(I've had to sew the ends of the sleeves back together and I've only worn it four times). However, if you're committed to the look and don't mind restitching, it's a great buy! It's also super soft and beautiful!! I say if you have the money to splurge, go for it!! (but if you're short, be careful, it's kinda long!)
So So So Disappointed!
I purchased this kimono at the store in Nashville. I loved it.... until I wore it for the first time. The right arm hole ripped 3-4 inches down the seam the first day. I am thinking that it unravelled? I have worn it a second time and it has continued to unravel on the right side. Free people is my favorite brand and this is the only garment I've bought that I have been unhappy with. Definitely not the Free People quality that I'm used to.
Hi ericaharmon, We're sorry to hear about your Kimono! Someone from our team will be in touch. - Free People
Even after reading all of the negative reviews i couldn't resist purchasing this after i saw it in stores. It's such a beautifully crafted kimono, from the shape to all of the glorious prints and patterns. I got the grey henna and it looks amazing with everything. Im 5'5 and it hits about my mid calf. Ive had mine since november of last year and worn it a handful of times and its still in great condition. Just be extra careful when wearing it and it should be fine. Overall an amazing free people product that has become a staple in my closet! Can't wait to get more colors!
A staple in my closet.
I bought this last October in navy and cream, and have used it for various adventures and outings. Yes, it is a raw edge, so yes, you do have to be careful to not let it snag. Mine has dealt with its fair share of tree branch catches and snags on chairs, but it has yet to fray like some of the other reviews are saying. Take good care of it, and it can be worn in so many different ways. It's doubled over as a scarf and a blanket for me at times. The tailoring is perfect, and the design is fabulous.
