This print is ADORABLE. I love that these bow tops are 100% lightweight cotton with a crisp little necktie! The only downside is that there is no stretch to the fabric. Reading the earlier reviews, I decided to order bow tops in both small & medium to try it out for myself. I think if I were planning to wash this in the machine at home & dry it, I would've kept the medium & hoped it shrank a bit. But since I hate ironing, I plan to dry clean it which means the fit should be more spot-on. I found that the medium was too loose in the waist to give me that curvy retro fit I wanted. If I wanted it to be a little roomy so it can be tucked in and puffed out a bit, then the medium would have worked but I decided to go with the small for a closer fit. The 36-37 measurement in the bust is spot-on & fit just the teensiest bit tight under the arms (like a previous reviewer said) but the waist fit with about an inch or two give--so I would say the waist is 28" or so. I love these bow tops so much I am planning to stalk this site untilI get all the patterns I like. Also I like that it feels handmade.
The instructions said that this is running a bit larger so I ordered a small which fit a little snug. I have size 36 bust, while the shirt fit everywhere else, across the bust and under the arms were tight. I guess if you like your clothes to fit snug it would be ok, but I need some wiggle room. going to exchange for a medium but it is super cute.
Super cute! Light weight. A size 1x Fit just right. I’m 5’9” and 170 lbs. I love this adorable hedgehog print. Super comfy too. retrolicious is so easy to deal with. I needed an exchange for size. I bought a larger size and returned the smaller size. It came quick and they refunded me back. Had no problems. Will definitely order from this company again.
