Women's 3/4-sleeve Drapey Knit Button-front Shirt
Great layering piece
I purchased the mazarine blue (which I think is a beautiful brilliant blue-unlike another reviewer who likened it to a school uniform)...I have worn it three times so far and machine washed it on delicates...so far, so good. YES, it is a thinner fabric with drape to it! I don't know why so many ladies are expecting every shirt they purchase to be seriously substantial. I can see where this fabric would be unforgiving if you are carrying a little weight in your mid-section, but it's a perfect weight to layer with a cute blazer and not suffer from a "personal summer". All-in-all, I really adore this shirt and going to purchase another-especially since I found it on sale now!

Not impressive fabric
The fabric is too soft thus the blouse is 'slouchy' and no form. Not impressive at all. Need to return but too much trouble for me thus store it away and wonder what to do with it.

Pretty & comfortable
Colors are lovely. I bought two - mazarine and the purple. Placket hides the buttons nicely. Three / quarter length sleeves are attractive. I didn't follow washing directions - I washed my first one in warm water and dried on a light setting in the dryer. I think it shrunk a bit, though it still fits. I bought one for my sister for Christmas, and she likes hers too.

Wash and Toss
While I see that this is like everything else I buy as of late, very thin fabric. After even a gentle wash in a machine this shirt would be garbage. So I will use woolite and gently hand wash and maybe hang dry, like most things I buy and want to last.
The fabric feels very nice but it is like paper thin. Which may be a character of the Lyocell silk blend. I imagine it will also pill. I am happy I didnt pay full price for it, otherwise I would deem it not worth the cost. I am 5'4 maybe 115 small frame but not skinny and the small is Very baggy on me ( they sold out of xs) . While I thought I could wear it to the office, it will be for everyday wear. It is not tailored fitting to wear even in a casual office I think, almost sloppy fitting. In saying that the comfy fit and the Winterberry ( love this color so much its like merlot ) is a nice shirt to just wear with jeans and have in my closet. I returned the Medium navy which is REALLY BIG on me and returned the Mezerine blue, just looks more like a school uniform color. I would buy this shirt again in the sold out colors of green and rust in XS if they sold it again.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this shirt. I am 5' 1'', 103 lbs, petite. I ordered a petite xs and it fits comfortably and drapes nicely when tucked in. The material is super soft and the color is versatile (I ordered the purple/wine color). Usually, Land's End does not fit my petite frame very well but since this shirt apparently fits small, this was perfect for me!
The only thing I am concerned is how this shirt will turn out after going through the washing machine.

Sleeves too tight but love the fabric.
I ordered this shirt in the 1X as I didn't want it to be too large on me but found the sleeves to be too tight so I ordered the 2X and will return the one I have. I would recommend bringing this fabric back again but design the sleeves to have more room in them. I especially like having the Plus Petite size and wish there were more items with this option. The drape is wonderful and silky which is the best part of this tailored shirt. We need more tailored shirts that are not the stiff woven material as that tends to be unconfortable for me. I have not washed it yet but hope there will not be shrinkage. This silky fabric is VERY confortable!

Great shirt, but beware of inconsistent sizing!
I love this shirt - looks put together without the stiffness of a standard button-down. Material is nice and soft, colours are great - I got the purple, navy and forest green in PM, but they are all slightly different in size! Arm and body width vary in all three, but not enough to make them unwearable. I liked them so much that I ordered a fourth in the brick heather also in PM, but it is huge! I'm sure it is at least a large, even the collar is bigger and floppier. This last one is, unfortunately going back.

Sleeves are way to tight!
It was snug when I first tried it on. I should have returned it. After one washing, the sleeves were tight. After 2 washings I ca'n't even get my arms in.

Soft and comfy
This is a cute shirt. I usually wear an 8 or 10 in shirts and ordered a 10.
(5'5" 128, 36" bust)
It is loose but not too big, long enough to wear over leggings but really looks good tucked into jeans. It hides "muffin tops" without being too billowing. Very flattering. Washed once and air dried...no problem with shrinking. I ordered the navy and I am going to order another color.

One of My New Favorites
I loved this shirt so much, I ordered 2 more in different colors. It is a wonderfully soft fabric that drapes beautifully. The shirt has a flattering fit - although I do recommend ordering up a size. I am 5' 4", 135 pounds and normally wear size small - I ordered a medium and it fits great. I do take care when washing - gentle cycle in a lingerie bag, then air dry only - and it is still looking like new with no shrinkage. This shirt looks great tucked into jeans with a cute belt and flats - my husband even commented on how much he liked it!
