Rated 4 out of 5Â by jeg I like it but....
I bought this in the Ivory, and I love a lot of things about it. What I DON'T love is the two ruffles that run down either side of the center panel! I keep looking at it and trying to like it, but there are so many other beautiful features to this shirt, that those two ruffles just scream "I don't belong here" to me. :/ I am looking at the black one and wondering if the ruffles would bother me as much on the black. I am seriously thinking of taking a razor blade and cutting the ruffles off, because I love everything else about the shirt. The sleeves are very very pretty. The neckline is feminine and flattering. The Ivory is pretty, but not really true to either depiction online. It is more golden than the outdoor picture, and definitely not as white as the studio shots. The fit is tts, I am 5'2" and a petite 4, generally a FP small and sometimes xs, and I bought this in a small and it is a perfect fit. The quality of the shirt supports the price. But for the ruffle this is a great wardrobe add.

I splurge on this item. I normally would not spend 168.00 on a top! It is a lovely piece but does run large. I order the Ivory in a large and it is as pictured, but it is pretty big on me. That is ok as I am thinking once it is washed it will shrink up and probably be a better fit. As usual the arm are way to long on me but I am going to take a few tucks going up the sleeves to shorten them. Also as stated by another buyer the buttons are some what hard and time consuming to button. So, once buttoned you might want to leave them that way. I have mine only buttoned thru the 10 button and wear it a little open down towards the bottom of the sleeve .Love the back on this top! Dispite all of the negative things about this top I am keeping it as it's different and unique. I am wearing it with a old victorian petticoat skirt that I hand dyed. The two pieces look awesome to gather with boots!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by capegurl kinda strange sizing...
I got both colors-I loved the styling of this top-but the black was so much smaller than the cream colored one-it was like a different top entirely! I sent it back and may re-order.Sometimes you just get a strangly sized piece.....oh well!

Purchased this in a medium when I normally purchase a xs or small. Reason for this was due to the small showing as 36 inch bust all round and I have a 35 inch bust so was a little scared that it may have been to tight.
Never fear there is plenty of room. I also wanted it to fit as per the catalogue picture rather than the studio shot.
I would say the colour is closer to the studio shot and as another reviewer said most of the buttons on the sleeves were undone and they do take a little time to do up.
The sleeves themselves are gorgeous and the detailing overall is lovely.
Measurements for a medium are as follows.
Bust all round 38 inches.
Sleeve length from top of shoulder 28 inches
Length from top of shoulder to bottom 26 inches.
FYI 167cms, 55kg or 123 pounds and 35 inch bust.
I could have worn xs or small however I am not unhappy with the medium and love the flowiness of the garment.

Beautiful, flattering, and flowy top. I got my usual size of medium and am glad I did, as I like my tops slightly loose. It is not the beautiful colour as shown in the catalogue...it's brighter; however, it's also not as bright as the online photos. I sure wish it was the colour from the catalogue...that would be perfect. The sleeves have buttons that slip into loops. There are a whole bunch of them, and when my top came in, only three or four were done up. It seriously took me about 20 minutes to get them all in, as they're a very tight fit. I had to use tweezers to help me.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by funnydogmom I agree!
The last reviewer said that this was gauzy with much detail. She was spot-on. I think the color is just a bit lighter than the color pictured.

This top is definitely not the one in the catalog. As pointed out by the previous reviewer, the color is lighter. The sleeves are also entirely different (as you can see from looking at the catalog shot vs. the studio shot). The sleeves, to me, looked like a softer material than the top I received and the top in the studio shots. I was expecting what I ordered out of the catalog. This top is pretty, just not what I wanted. I wanted what I found in the catalog. It's going back
