Women's 3/4-sleeve Linen Ballet Tunic
I have to say, the linen is lovely. Other than that, the fit was terrible. I am short waisted, 5'3, 120 lbs. and athletic. I looked dumpy and puffy. The sleeves are gathered and (though I didn't wash it because I'm returning it), they puffed up like some medieval peasant top. Less bohemian and more just goofy costume. The length was shorter than expected and I would not be able to wear a belt like in the picture. Very disappointing.

Fantastic fabric and colour but bad style on me......
Good blouse but made me look oversized and bloated!
On a thin, flatter chested person it would be great but made me look top-heavy so it has to go back.
Pity, incredible green colour and lovely linen.

Good Quality Linen
The fabric is wonderful but I have to return this. The neck is too scooped (like boat neck) and shows my bra straps.

Just ordered my third !
This blouse is absolutely lovely. Bought the jade and the blue last summer - wore them constantly, washed them, dried them, ironed them, generally abused them: They still look brand new! Ordering the stone colour now (don't want to miss them if they sell out). I recommend ordering one size down - it is very roomy in my usual XL, but L is perfect. The style is classic, I expect to wear them for years. The fabric is so comfortable in the summer - yet substantial and not see-through.

It looks perfect in the picture - because it is.... none of the usual daily wrinkles and rumples that give this weird shape. It is maternity-like and frumpy without the belt. Looks great with a belt...as long as you are posing like the above picture. By the end of the day it was flouncing out above the belt and took on a shape of its own (to the point - not flattering). The neckline is pretty but probably adds to the sack-like effect. Maybe if I tried the smaller size - but I had already sized down from XL to L. I got in Liberty Blue - 5 sails for the colour!

Great summer top
I spend an hour or more a day on a hot playground all summer and I love this blouse for the breathe-ability. It is a little snug in the hips and cuff, but I'm a little thick in those areas, so it may be me. I found that if I hang it to dry I can get away with not ironing, since linen wrinkles so easily and I hate ironing.
