Women's Long Sleeve Slub Yarn Dye Drop Shoulder Tunic
A pleasant wear
Purchased this as a gift for my mother and she was all smiles. The fabric is just right for warmer weather and the fit is loose enough for comfort and ease of movement. It has a casual look that can be easily dressed up.

Love the drop shoulders
Why is that designers think that when you get a little bit "round" in the middle your arms get longer and your shoulders suddenly become gigantic? This drop-shoulder style solves that problem and is a nice change from raglan sleeves, another alternative if you can't get the right fit in the shoulders. The fabric is cool with the sleeves rolled up but I see this as an all-season shirt unless you live in a really hot climate. Yes, it needs ironing but when it is ironed it looks fresh and crisp but not formal because of the slub fabric. I like the longer length (I'm 5' 4") and the freedom around the middle without being too big and sloppy. I know that there have been reviews about the fit which differ but it just proves that we are all created with different shapes. When I find a shirt that fits my shape just right I buy every color, so bring it back in more colors!

A bargain on sale and exactly as advertised
I bought this shirt in purple and then, later, in red. It washes well, looks very fresh when ironed and is exactly as advertised.

Pocket placement too high.
I loved the color & fit except the pockets are placed too high for my 60-something figure. Darn!

Nice shirt but sleeves are binding
I wear about an XL in just about everything. This was plenty loose in the torso but the sleeves were binding. My arms are larger which is why I buy an XL so it might fit someone else just fine.

a nice alternative to chambray
I liked this shirt when I saw it on sale online, since I've been taken with the look of chambray shirts worn with belted skirts. Chambray can come in a range of colors, but so far I've only seen medium blue for sale. Until this, which isn't really chambray but approximates the light-denim texture and tonality (albeit with a bit of a sheen). So I ordered it in the Crushed Grape in my usual 1X, and it's worked out beautifully for tucking in. Yes, it's a bit roomy; that goes along with the (slightly) dropped shoulders. But reining in the fullness with a defined waist has worked well for me. Since the skirts I've been wearing it with are fitted at the waist and flare out on the bias, I haven't had a problem with there being too much material underneath.

I don't believe this is 100% cotton
I love the color of this top (crushed grape). But it has a weird feel to it. One reviewer said it was like a size 10 back sewn to a size 12 top. I agree with that- it pulls (or something) when you reach or lift your arms. And the fabric, to me, feels like a linen / cotton blend. The placket and top of pockets got quite wrinkly when washed. With all my cotton tops I dry for just a few minutes to relax wrinkles, then air dry. This top was still a litlle wrinkly after that. But, it doesn't look bad, just casual. I'd still recommend it, but only at a good sale price.

Nice casual top
Fabric is nice - can't see thru it. Washes and wears well. Looks good with jeans and leggings. Wish they had it in white. I ordered my usual size PM and the fit was perfect - roomy without looking sloppy. Glad I bought it.

Verdict still out
I have tried on this shirt a few times since it arrived, and I'm still not sure what to do with it. It's a cute style, especially with the sleeves rolled up. But because of the "relaxed" fit and long shirt tail, it does have a bit of a painting smock feel to it. I'm not exactly sure what to pair the top with to avoid a sloppy look. But I like it enough to keep it and try to make a cute outfit.

Too Short for a Tunic
Might work on a slimmer figure. If you have a stomach issue-it doesn't hang as nice
