Girls' Long Sleeve No Iron Pinpoint Blouse
Nice fabric POOR FIT
The pinpoint fabric is attractive and a nice quality, especially for a kids shirt at this price. However, the fit is unflattering and uncomfortable.
The cut through the body and around the arm-scyes/set-in sleeve seams is just right, but the sleeves get huge from there. The sleeves are so wide/big around on the size 12 we received, especially in the forearms and wrists, that they're cumbersome and unattractive. Tough to fit them under sweaters. Seems like they'd easily get in the way and get dirty when eating, writing, etc. The cuffs are stubby short, too, (shorter than pictured) which makes their over-sized circumference look even sillier. (For reference, the cuffs are almost an inch bigger around than those on my tailored adult size 4 shirts.)
The collar is also ridiculously big in circumference, making the shirt a difficult fit under sweaters that fit well at the neck. It's just plain goofy looking when worn solo, too. (For reference, the collar is bigger around than the LE girls short sleeve and 3/4 sleeve oxford shirts we purchased at the same time. Those collars are bigger around than ideal, too, but thankfully they're smaller than the one on this shirt.) This is suppose to be a refined shirt but the over-sized parts kill the look and comfort.
I know girls want to be able to move around easily, but my daughter just found the out-sized parts a hindrance, especially when she tried the shirt under her sweaters (even her LE sweaters of the same size).

Our Fav Uniform Blouse!
This is my daughter's "go-to" school uniform blouse. It is very comfortable and even while being little pricey at the outset, it wears remarkably well -- younger daughter is wearing the hand-me-down from her older sister (and we've recently bought more for her). Good quality, definitely our favorite!

Clothing is part of a school uniform. Sizes run small (about one size), but shirt is well made. It's only been tried on, since it's for the upcoming school year, so I have not yet washed it. I can tell that it will last longer than the shirts that we've purchased from the school uniform places.
