Women's Short Sleeve Heavyweight Jersey Notch Neck Top
Loved the fabric, but...
The only thing I liked was the fabric. Its gaping neckline was totally unflattering. The scrollwork, while nice in itself, was oversized. It looked better online than it did in real life. Sadly returning.

Shrunk a whole size!
Nice top, it fit great when I first tried it on. After one washing in cold water, then hung up to dry it shrunk at least 1 size if not 2. The sleeves are more like cap sleeves, Not at all like the picture. Pretty disappointed and will be returning it.

Really nice shirt!
This shirt is a heavier fabric than a regular tee. It's dressier too. Although I probably won't wear it in the dead of summer in Texas, the heavier fabric is not really too hot and stays crisp and nice looking. Everything made for summer is see through lightweight and wrinkles. This is a more substantial shirt and I really like it. The fit was good and it was a good length, longer to my hip but not too long. If they had another color I would buy it.

I'm tall and large and did not expect to like the way the horizontal stripes looked on me (ordered it to get free shipping), so I was really surprised to discover that the top looks great on me! The heavier fabric doesn't cling and the neck detail makes the top look a little less casual than a regular tee. I washed and dried mine and it didn't shrink much, if any. This immediately became one of my absolute favorite tops.

The fabric was too heavy for summer wear.
Returned this item, the fabric was too heavy for summer and the style too boxy.

Fit is perfect. No problems with sleeves or any other proportions. The piping is extra nice.

Cute, but shrunk an entire size
The heavy fabric and embroidery on this shirt are lovely. When I tried it on, it fit perfectly, if not a little snug. After the 1st washing, it shrunk an entire size and I was unable to wear it again. Too bad, because it was a nice shirt.

Great top--but be aware of sleeve length
My rating reflects that this top doesn't work for me--but it's a really nice shirt. The fabric is as substantial as described. The braid is lovely and expertly applied. However, the sleeves were much shorter than I anticipated. My arms aren't that cute, and the sleeves ended at an unflattering place. I wish I could keep it but knew I'd only wear it occasionally under a jacket so I returned it. (Lands End--make it again next year with longer sleeves, please!) If you like your upper arms, get this shirt.

beautiful fabric & finishing
I tried this on in the store and found it to be cute as a button. The sleeves and hem length were a bit short if you size down (I usually do in tops at LE), but the heavyweight jersey envies a real mariniere shirt and has a rich look. The soutache embroidery puts a nice spin on a stripey shirt, too - if I weren't long-waisted, this would be in my closet right now.
