What a beautiful blouse! I was a little hesitant on ordering a Tall but I'm so glad I did, as I am 5'9 and have a long torso...It was a perfect fit!! The only negative for me is that the sleeve band is a bit large on my arms so I will have them altered slightly for a more tailored fit. This blouse looks great with jeans or dress slacks!
Not the color I was expecting
The animal print blouse in the catalog photo seemed to have more of a tan background. The blouse that arrived had a more olive green tint to the background. I am 5' 7", so I ordered the tall size, because the catalog indicated that the blouse is a bit shorter than usual, but it was still too short for my taste.
Love the Sleeves; Flattering and Professional
This blouse is actually very flattering, and slimming. I wasn't sure it would be slimming with all the ruffles in the front, but it is. It's professional, and I love the shorter mid-sleeves. It's very challenging to find these kinds of sleeves these days because designers have become lazy and cheap, creating mostly sleeveless clothes. And long sleeves are too hot for summer. It's been a brutal summer, and we need more professional blouses like this that are short-sleeved, cool and flattering. I would even like to see more blouses that cinch at the waist or under the bust and flare out over the tummy, for an even more flattering effect...like tunics, babydoll tops and kimono-esque looks (but not as long as those). Also, more looks for petites. The longer blouses cut off the legs of shorter women.
It's A Nice Shirt! And It Is White!
This A Really Nice Shirt A Little Long But, I Have A Short Torso.
Red Ruffled Shirt
Love It! Red is my favorite color and this shirt wears well and looks great. When I where it with the red pleated pants, well, it brings the whole look together. I get a lot of looks.
Like the shirt, but.
I like this shirt, but I order a 16 because the 14 and 12 were out of stock. This is too big. I must alter or send back. Not sure yet.
I bought this shirt and thought it looked rather ridiculous, too puffy. I returned it.
Pretty, Pretty. I ordered the "rich red". Red like the cherries you buy in glass jar from grocery store.Many Thanks Metrostyle

I ordered these blouses two summers ago the magenta, black and white. Very pretty blouses. I agree with the 1st writer the button hold is small. Beside these blouses are very pretty. This is a must have ladies nice material.

blouse is lovely. looks nice on if I could button. Button holes are too small; therefore, difficult to button.
