Women's Bracelet Sleeve Scoopneck Flocked Blouse
Didn't work for me.
This shirt didn't fit me at all but I have a larger chest and this sort of thing happens to me. I do think the shirt is really cute though.

Pretty but not practical
The blouse, while pretty, is nothing like the picture. The "bracelet sleeves" are just bracelet length and very wide. Returned it right away.

Many of the dots were misshapen because the printing didn't take on the fabric, and the sewing was poor quality. Not up to LE normal high quality at all. I returned it immediately.

Nice blouse, a keeper but not perfect
The first time I attempted to order this blouse, I received a very large women's swim suit instead. I re-ordered and finally received the blouse.
I found the sizing to be what I expected, but the gathers at the lower back made it pull in places where it should have fallen straight, so I removed the elastic gathering, and it now falls nicely, hides a tummy, and hits at a good place - mid hip.
I have worn it several times through the holidays and felt pretty in it. I also like the lower, but not too low neckline.
My only complaint now is that the buttons with the little gold accent look cheap and don't work with my silver-toned jewellry. I will replace them with a plain black button myself.
I would love Lands End to make more blouses like these for work in prints that work with black pants. I noticed the black/ivory "eye glasses" print in the new catalog, but sadly, this print fabric was not available in plus sizes! Very disappointed with that, it was the best print you have ffered in a long time! Please bring it back in plus soon!

dressy and easy to wear...
...but the neckline can be problematic without the proper undergarment. The material is thin but has nice buttons and that dressy look. Perhaps this top is a little over-priced, but it solved my "all-black dress-up problem." It will work with different blacks because of the textures.

Falls very smoothly all over, great for evening and casual events. Quality is excellent and looks great.

This blouse is very pretty and fits well. I wish it had a touch of stretch in it.

LOVELY, SLIMMING and ELEGANT BLOUSE
I bought this blouse in black color at Sears two weeks ago and I was very surprised about how nice it looked when I tried it on. I love the cut, the design and the details. It is very nice how it gathers on the back that accents the waist, also the elegant buttons with a gold edge, and adorable velvet dots on it. It looks very elegant and so slimming. I like the scoop neck to be able to show a necklace but the only thing is that the scoop neck was too big in width in my size, with too much extra material on the shoulders. I now wear a Large in Lands End clothing (even though I have an Extra Large and and bra size 38DD) so I had but I had to get a Medium, which feels tighter on my wide hips to my liking, but I still bought it. Maybe is the way it gathers on the shoulders with those pleats that makes the scoop so big. I just wish that it had a little slit on the sides for my wide hips. I bought it on sale. I am overall very pleased with this purchase. So far I have not have any problems with the material, and I have washed it and ironed it just fine (because it had a few wrinkles from having being folded, I guess, before it got to the store). I wish that it was offered in more solid colors (burgundy, dark green, purple, etc) without the velvet dots for everyday use because I love it.

sizing is way off
i was so excited to order this blouse to wear with the new velvet pants in the midnight blue. but i was very, very disappointed. The sizing is way off. The workmanship is quite nice and the color is very pretty. But the sizing is way, way off......not a true plus size in my opinion. this is not worth the money and i will be returning it to Sears. I am rarely dissappointed in a Lands" End product, but this one is not a "keeper"

not worth the price
waited eagerly for this top, but was disappointed. i chose the midnight blue because the colour looked gorgeous on my screen -- a deep yet vibrant blue. but it turned out to be a simple navy blue that didn't stand out at all. the blouse does have lovely details -- on the shoulders and in the back. unfortunately, the material is so flimsy that the little black band holding the gathers in the back had caused a hole in the fabric. and because the material is so thin, you can't mend it without making the hole worse. how disappointing, because the overall look and style of this top is great.
land's end, please try this again, using better quality fabric that's worthy of the price tag you put on this.
