Women's Long Sleeve Georgette Drapeneck Blouse
Not great but a nice addition
I have this blouse in the black and lapis blue. I bought them to try because they were on a great sale.
The wrinkles from shipping wouldn't even come out with 2 washings so I was about to send them back because you're not supposed to dry clean, iron, etc. (wash in cold, no bleach (obviously), no softener, and then hang dry). Finally my husband gave it a whirl and ironed them on a very high temperature but very quickly (like you would with silk) and the wrinkles came out.
Ok now for the fit. They fit really well. I like the neckline with the bit of a drop loose neck but not overly so.
The sleeves are narrow so if you have large upper arms, this is not the blouse for you.
The colors retained their vibrancy so far with the two washes. I hope I don't have the wrinkling issues going forward with subsequent washes.
I bought them to go with:
Women Regular Border Print Skirt Item # 408550-A70. (skirt is too big). If you're still able to order this, make sure to order at least 2 sizes smaller)

I would have never ever bought this in a real shop. Waste of money.

A little awkward...
The blouse is gorgeous and the colors are unique but the cut feels asymmetric on my body.

Lovely blouse for various occasions
Love this item!! It fits perfectly. I am a solid 12 and the shirt fits exactly as it should. I ordered one to see how I liked it, upon the first wearing...I was so happy! I ordered 2 other colors. The blue and black are my favorites. The rose is a little more delicate. I get so many compliments when I wear it. And it is such a great shirt to have in my wardrobe. It is a must have!

Fit feels odd, but looks pretty
Although the size is right, it feels like something is pulling at the back - making it somewhat uncomfortable. However, it looks very pretty and I received compliments when I wore it.

This blouse is a very attractive and comfortable top. The neckline does not droop so much that it shows cleavage, but drapes so that jewelry would show to advantage. I'm a petite, and the fit is perfect. It looks good worn out or tucked into your skirt or slacks.
It must be washed in cold water, and line dried. No fabric softener, no bleach, do not dry clean.

Too tight across shoulders
I agree with the other reviewers - this is too tight across the shoulders. The body of the blouse was slightly more fitted on me than the model, so maybe I should have gone up a size, but I don't think that would have helped. I'm 5'3" 125lbs and ordered a 2. Also, it has a curved hem at the bottom, which wasn't clear to me when I bought it. The curved hem was actually my favorite part.

Too small throughout shoulders, too big elsewhere...
I bought this in black for a lighter-weight option for the long-sleeve concert black requirements. The fit was very odd - very restrictive across the shoulders and absolutely huge at the neck and waist. The draped neck was nearly indecently low. The fabric isn't bad - just this side of being so lightweight as to be seethrough, but the fit was just too chaotic.

This shirt feels too tight across the shoulders, and I have quite narrow shoulders. The fabric is also really static-y. It's too bad because I love the blue colour and I like this style of shirt.

So disappointed - very odd fit!
I tried this blouse on at the store because I fell in love with the coral color, but was alarmed by the other reviews of an odd fit. The other reviewers were absolutely right - it fits very strangely, especially across the top of the back. Couldn't do it. So disappointed because both the color and the fabric were just lovely.
