Women's Long Sleeve Modern Pattern Broadcloth Shirt
This item fit as expected. The color is perfect! Sleeve length is good and the entire feel of the blouse is wonderful

Big in Bust, Snug on Hips
Beautiful colors and seaming but as a 38B cup, it was too big in the bust, too much fabric in the back, and not tailored to accommodate hips--last button makes it fig snug. I'm 5'8" and thought the sleeve length was fine. It is a lightweight fabric so would layer nicely. Wish it fit better, its going back.

A great staple for work
I normally wear a size 12 in tops, but have a hard time with blouses gaping around the bust (36 DD). If I buy a size that fits across the bust (a 14, for example), the sleeves are too long. I decided to size up but in a petite size, and this combination made all the difference. The sleeves are just right and the cuffs show just as they should when I wear a blazer, but they are not too long. The rest of the fit is just right. The only reservation I have is the slightest bit of tightness through the shoulders, but that is because the petite must be proportionally smaller all over. I bought three shirts and will buy more. They are easy care, as well, and look much more expensive than they were.

I got the green and white pin stripe and have worn it with a sweater vest. I have also worn it without the vest and like the way it stays tucked into my pants. The color is perfect for me. The sleeves are a tad long but not so much that it bothers me.

Nice tailored striped shirt
I bought this shirt in two colors in the XS petite. Fit is fine - enough room in chest and shoulders, arms seem to be the proper length, overall shirt length is fine. Shirt seems to fit true to size. It's a very professional looking shirt. Does not seem to be sheer but the weight of the fabric is light - I may need to wear a sweater in my cold office. Once the shirt is washed and hung to try when slightly wet, it doesn't seem to need ironing, at least not to me. Only minor issues are - I liked the heavier weight of the oxford sportshirt better for work because my office is cold, and this shirt did not come in the raspberry stripe in a petite size. Also, it seems a little silly to call this shirt a wide stripe when it is actually a narrow stripe!

Runs tighter in waist/ hips than before
My usual size 16 is now a bit too snug, and going up to a size 18 won't work because in 18 there is too much excess fabric/ bagginess behind the shoulders that looks bad. (I wish LE would put a pleat or gather between the shoulders to allow comfortable room without the excess baggy fabric problem behind the shoulders! Also a bit more room and overlap in the bust to prevent gaping) I have been losing weight, so I'm hoping it will fit in another 5-10 pounds or so...

The fit, fabric and color was what I wanted.
The fit is excellent. The shirt is perfect for shopping at the mall.

Sleeves way too long
This is a nice lightweight fabric that will look and feel good even at the end of the day. It does not wrinkle easily, and the subtle pattern is fresh and different. It is light enough to layer easily without overheating.
However!!! The sleeves go almost to the tips of my fingers and the shirt itself is extremely long. I feel like I'm wearing my daddy's shirt. I wish I had ordered the 3/4 sleeve length instead. I am not Petite so I am puzzled by this.

The size is perfect - maybe a tad generous, the fabric and workmanship excellent, and "true blue" is a lovely wedgewood shade in just the right width stripe. Highly recommend this shirt.
