Style: 35248640 Colour:
Gauzy washed peasant top with gathered, pleated sleeves, an empire waist, and mother-of-pearl button-down back.
I love this top, I really do ... it fits beautifully, I adore the dark navy color, and it's very versatile & super cute. BUT. The navy dye gets EVERYWHERE. Under my fingernails, all over my white linen pants, and it's ruined a white cami or two. It's annoying but I continue to wear it anyway! Washing it 3x has done me no good.

Lovely and flowing
I waited for this to come back into stock and wasn't disappointed. I bought the blue colour which is quite dark but has the washed out look as per the pictures. It has a lovely flow and can be worn both with the buttons at the front or the back. It is quite delicate and snags easily so needs to be washed carefully. I like the full sleeves and would recommend buying it.
Not what I expected, but love it anyway
Based on the online photos, I thought this would be a very light, gauzy summer top, and I loved the blue color so much I had to have it. I'm petite, usually size S or 4, 32DD, and got the XS. It fits perfectly in the shoulders, and the seams across the chest and the upper arms are a bit snug, but otherwise this top is very, very full. At first I thought there was no way I could wear such a full top, but the second time I tried it on I started falling in love with it. In spite of being full, it flows well, and makes my bottom half look small in comparison. The sleeves hit right at my wrists and the top is actually a bit shorter on me than the model, which is odd because I'm a lot shorter than she is. It isn't actually short, though - it's mid-hip length. Also the fabric is much heavier and coarser than I expected, a very rustic weave, but not scratchy and not too heavy for warm weather. The blue color is amazing. The photos do not do it justice, it's deep and vivid and rich-looking. I did not have any problems with the dye bleeding, as another reviewer did. I washed it in cold water with dark colors and hung it to dry and it came out fine, no bleeding and no shrinkage. I should also mention that it can be worn with the buttons in front or back, which makes it more versatile. I really love this but would recommend sizing down unless you have broad shoulders or want more length.
The dye bleeds!
I really love this top. I first bought it in the greenish color and then the navy. BUT when I I wore the navy to work, the blue dye bled all over my skin making it seem like I was bruised all over my neck area! I was so embarrassed as my coworkers noticed. They all know that I'm an fp fanatic. I was embarrassed to even tell them how much I paid for this poor quality top. I think this reflected badly to them. I'm very disappointed to say the least. I still love the style and hope that with a few washes the bleeding will stop. I hope fp will have better QC on the clothing I the future :(

Peach is not peach
I bought this top in the green and it is adorable! It fits well and looks cute and feels so comfortable! So, I bought in the color "peach". It is cute, but the color is not peach. It looks like it is tea stained with variations in color...almost skin colored. You would definitely have to have a tan to pull it off. I think it would be so pretty in white! Hoping!
Comfortable and Cool!
This is my favorite top this season! Comfortable and cool breathable cotton gauze! Hangs beautifully and very well made! Meant to be roomy elsewhere but fits great on my small shoulders in a size small!
