Love the material, not see through--hooray, style and length are great--long enough to not bare your back bending over, but the placket should be sown down and perhaps made a little less deep. I am keeping, but altering mine.
nice fabric -

The linen fabric was your usual high quality. Unfortunately, the body length of this tunic was just too long for me. Had to return it.
I love it! -

Tends to run a little large, but easy return and I had the next size down fitting perfectly.
it was the fit -
The fabric is beautiful and the design idea was good but the fit was matronly.
Not bad... -

Nice Shirt -

Fits well, very comfortable, seems to be well-made. Love the bohemian look.
Classy Tunic -
I purchased this in melon and I am very happy I did. I ordered a size down after reading existing reviews, it fits perfectly! The color is a beautiful shade, not too bright but definitely a top that will be noticed!
If you can get the size right, this might please you. Seems well made. But it is about a size and a half larger than one would expect.

Very poor fitting - so unusual for Orvis items! Returned.

I ordered this top in the aqua color and it's lovely. The top runs large (I should have read the reviews more carefully) so it's fairly roomy on me. I wear a white cami with it and receive compliments every time I wear it. I've ordered it in white and melon in the next size down. Love it.
The original natural fabric
The oldest fiber known to man, linen is also the most natural and most environmentally friendly fiber in the world. From the blue-flowered linum (or common flax) plant that is native to temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, flax has been grown for thousands of years without any damage to the environment.
The Power of Flax
Flax is a completely renewable resource and every part of the plant is used, therefore eliminating any waste. The fibers are used for textiles or paper, the resulting linseed oil is sought after for oil paints and soap, flax seeds and flax seed oil are prized for their nutritional value.
Fortitude - In and Out of Soil
A hearty plant that thrives in many diverse environments, flax requires very little fertilizer or pesticides—many times less than cotton. The resulting linen fabric is also fully biodegradeable and can be totally recycled.
Linen Through the Ages
Linen is thought to have originated in ancient Mesopotamia. The ancient Egyptians wrapped their mummies in linen strips, taking advantage of the fabric’s inherent natural strength. The strongest of all vegetable fibers, linen is two-to-three times stronger than cotton. It is actually stronger when wet, which is why it washes so well and is so durable.
Built to Last
Linen becomes softer and more comfortable with age. It absorbs moisture far better than cotton and dries more quickly, making it ideal wear for humid summers and tropical climates. Highly breathable and anti-allergenic, linen has UV-protection properties as well. Linen holds dyes and prints with excellent color fastness, so it is available in every color and print imaginable.
Ancient History to Modern Day
Today, linen is widely used for clothing, bedding, upholstery fabrics and household tablecloths, napkins, and towels. Keeping our commitment to conservation efforts and sustainability is easy with this truly renewable natural fabric. Orvis offers a full range of men’s and women’s apparel in classic, breathable, and eco-friendly fabric.
