Rated 4 out of 5Â by lialia Cute but a little awkward.
Maybe I just don't have the right body type for these kinds of tops but this hits me a bit awkwardly at the hips. I'm keeping it because it's adorable and I'm determined to make it work, but there's kind of an adjustment process you'll probably need to do to figure out how this lays best on you. Very thin/flimsy and sheer fabric; I ordered the off-white and I have to wear something under it. Definitely overpriced, considering how delicately it's made (a sleeve closure button fell off within a day of wearing it...not cool) but if you've really got your hopes set on this blouse it's worth a shot.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by SuP Same shirt new pattern
I bought a peasant blouse that is the same material, construction and size at my local FP store with a very pretty pattern. The color is between pale peach and tea with medium medallion prints and flowers. It is versatile with the sinch at the bottom, though beware, I had to try different lengths of the shirt to find a nice fit for my body shape. I'm 5'3 113lbs. Bought the xs and it's big.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mikalah Delicate but beautiful!
I managed to snag the last ivory in XS at my local FP, and am glad I found it. I'm normally a S in FP tops but figured I'd give it a shot. The XS fit great, so I'd say this runs maybe a bit loose, although personal preference may dictate whether or not you size down or stick with your standard. The ivory is definitely sheer, so I'll be layering a light tank underneath, and the material is delicate so be mindful of what jewelry you wear. The material is soft and I thought it flowed nicely. The one downside to the XS is the button sleeves are a bit tight but I simply undid the button. The ivory is understated enough that you can pair it with some louder jackets or pants. Paired mine with the Tomorrow Today Shirt in the Stone/Black combo and they work nicely together. This one is going to boil down to personal preference, as so aware you're getting a very thin, delicate, somewhat sheer top before purchasing.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by MeganLizB Very disappointed
I saw this top online and fell in love. The color is gorgeous! But when it arrived, I was disappointed to find how cheaply it was made. The top was cut way too big and the material was not soft at all. I am sad to say that I'm returning this one. Not worth the price.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by WBinHouston I want to love it - its just what I want, almost
Fabric is dreamy, color is delicious... neck line is a tad small as compared to the flawy body. I may try sizing up but returning and exchanging is a pain... I got the minty one, but the white/ivory looks dreamy,too!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by mynamoe If busty, makes you look bigger
I'm 5'2", 135, and got the small. It fits fine but for my body type, short and curvy, it makes me look alot bigger than I am on top. The blouse is very wide with alot of fabric. If you are busty and you like to minimize that part of you then this blouse may not work for you. The fabric is gauzy and light, really nice for summer. I would've preferred elastic poet sleeves rather than the little button. If I keep it I will have to make some alterations.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by emerald_city Disappointing
As others have said, looks great in the pictures, the way it perfectly billows out and comes in at the hips - it looks beautiful and would be the perfect top to take to the beach, throw on with shorts etc. BUT
- The construction seems flimsy, i'm not sure the tie-pull at the bottom would survive very long, given all the tugging to get it tight enough.
- And, it is massively too large! I got a size S and there is just too much fabric, hence the pulling and tugging, even when left slightly loose there is just too much excess fabric - so that when you put it right at the front, it looks odd at the back. So much that i doubt even the XS would have fitted me right!
Ultimately had to return. Which sucks because it is quite heard to find a peasant-style blouse that looks like this one should look...
Rated 3 out of 5Â by a_rad8 Wanted to like it..
This blouse is so cute. it comes in beautiful colors and prints too! it was big, but i know it is supposed to be that way so that is why i only rated it a little big. it was just bigger than expected. even in the XS i had to tie the drawstring super tight, but then it was too poofy at the bottom and didn't look right. this might look good on girls with a small chest but it didn't work for me. i really wanted this top to work and i probably would have gotten it in a couple colors but oh well, FP has plenty else i like :)
