LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PATTER! ❤️
and the material they use is very authentic.
I really wanted to love this top but it fit so oddly there's no size that would have worked for me. First of all, the torso is very short. Secondly, the armholes don't often sit nicely and can bend and fold weirdly, also not very flattering. Lastly, neckhole was quite large and the way the bow was incorporated I just could not get to sit correctly. I shudder to think how horrible it would be to put back together after a good wash. I really wanted this shirt to work for me, but it just really didn't.
I love the print and the tie detail. I was sort of between sizes and went with the smaller size, which even seemed a little on the small size for the measurements in the size chart (I sew clothing and took very careful measurements)- I actually was only expecting it to fit snugly in the chest, but it’s snug from chest to hips. It fits and hugs me nicely, but I’m definitely afraid to wash it for fear of shrinking it.
It’s pretty long (which is great for me!) and has a side zipper. The fabric is white, standard cotton (will shrink if washed or dried with heat). Opacity- not sheer, although if you wear a colorful or dark undergarment it will likely show through a little. The blouse is quality/well made.
If you’re between sizes- size up, not down.
I work in an office and am an engineer. While we are casual, some days I want to be a little dressier and I had to get this shirt when I saw it. I wore it to work and got so many compliments from other engineers and we had to try and remember what all the equations were used for.
