Women's Pattern Chambray Shirt
I read several reviews stating this top was too small, as in couldn't button it comfortably. I didn't have that problem at all, and I have a big tummy. It was way too short, though. I expect a shirt like this to be longer than the average. I wish I had measured the length (before returning it) so I could post it, but I didn't. I am 5'6" and the only reason it hit below my waist is because it was shirt tail style. Very disappointed in the Lands End quality control these days.

A gift for my mother..
She loves this shirt, and wears it quite a lot. Plain chambray, I thought, would be too young for an 85 year old woman, but the little white flowers made it perfect for her.

Fit is small. Otherwise nice shirt.
I bought the stripe shirt in the chambray fabric. I took other reviewers advice and bought up one size. No spare room! Color, sleeve length, button placement, overall workmanship is good quality. POOR SIZING!
BUY one size up (at least).

This shirt has very cute fabric and if you can get it to fit you will love it. It does run small in the shoulders, length, and sleeve length. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and the 12 fits well.

love the pattern, but the shirt runs small and is tight
I really wish I had read the reviews before buying this shirt. I've purchased other shirts from LE in the same size (16) with no problems. This shirt, I can't even button it closed! And the arms are SOOOOOO tight, I've considered having the seams taken out just so I can lift my arms. I really really want to love this shirt, it's so versatile and the fabric/print is lovely, but since I can't even comfortable wear it unbuttoned over a tank, it's a waste of money.

Sleeves are TOO SHORT, more like a petite!
I'm pretty average height at 5' 6" and usually take a size 16, sometimes 18 or a 16W for enough room in the bust (only because LE shirts recently seem tighter and gape at the bust, while I don't have that problem with their older ones). I've never had a problem with LE sleeves being too short. I ordered the lt blue floral in my usual LE regular size 16 and the sleeves were too short and binding when I tried to lift my arms! Also seemed short in body length. Tried the 16 W and the sleeves were even shorter. Tried the 18 regular, it was still too short, with the body now too wide making it short and wide and a sloppy fit on me. I don't plan to keep this shirt because I would have to keep the sleeves rolled up, and the poor fit makes it not worth the price. It is a cute print but the cut is way off unless you are shorter than "average"; those who are more petite may love this shirt! (LE seems to have problems with quality control and consistency in sizing lately since things are being outsourced and made overseas.) As others have commented, the buttons are also too small with thinner/ sharper edges, thus more difficult to button. Too bad there are problems because I like the fabric and color...

Too baggy, wish the stripe was available in Petite...
Like another reviewer said, this looks like a top that would have been part of the now defunct Lands' End Canvas line. I'm a sucker for stripes and chambray, and ordered this in a size 2 (I’m 5’3” 115 lbs., 32A-27-38). I have a handful of Lands’ End Canvas collared shirts, all in size 0 or XXS, and was thinking this might fit similarly. It felt bigger though. Too big for my taste. Even if this did come in a Petite XS, I’m still not sure I’d love the fit. That and I also wasn’t a big fan of the horizontal stripes on myself. Vertical would have been WAY better.

Beautiful, Trendy and Comfortable
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this chambray shirt in the stripe pattern! The style and fit is reminiscent of the now gone Land's End Canvas, so it is a somewhat more young, refined, close fit than the regular LE line. The fabric is substantial enough so you won't see a black bra underneath it but yet light enough for wearing in the summer evenings. The details are perfect: distressed white metal buttons with just one on each sleeve sewn in red thread for a cute but barely noticeable detail, hanging loop on the back yoke, front pockets that are sewn perfectly to match the fabric behind, perfect length to tuck or not, the pattern is vertical on the back yoke, collar and cuffs for interest, and a button on the back of the collar to keep it perfectly folded. A true year-round shirt which you will want to wear every day. I picked up my first one in the NQP section and not sure why they're there because it appears perfect to me! I have only one complaint...I wish all the other patterns of this chambray shirt were also on sale because I'd buy one of each! It's a timeless look that you'll wear for years. Buy one, two or more before they're gone!

This is a really cute shirt.
This is a really cute shirt. I hope to see similar items in the future, perhaps in bigshirt style or with short sleeves.

Cute shirt, way too short
I was so excited to receive this shirt but it is unbelievably short. Granted I am 5'11" but my height is in my legs and I typically wear regular sized tops. The hem of this shirt barely passed the waistband of my jeans. Has to go back despite all of the wardrobe options I could imagine.
