a little boxy.... -

I've seen this blouse on the Orvis site & in catalogues for a while, & finally decided to try it. I really it. True to the reviews, it's a boxy fit -- not as sleek as it appears in the photo. I took it in (simple darts; I'm not that good with my sewing machine), and it looks about like the calalogue photo now. If you like a boxy fit, or can do simple alterations, this is a good top.

This blouse is great for dressing up with a skirt or jeans. Pretty detail and nice fit.
compliments galore -

I bought this blouse and the pictured skirt several seasons ago. It still looks great! Every time I wear it, I get compliments on the style and fit. I just love it!
No shape -
By: Emla from VA
Contrary to the picture in the catalog, this blouse has no shape. I tried two different sizes to go with the batik skirt as shown, but the blouse isn't nearly as attractive as it appears in the catalog photo.
Simply Elegant -

I love this blouse and it really goes well with my Orvis summer skirts. The only downside is that it is made of viscose which creases easily and is not so good for taking on holiday.
The fabric is very light, so this is a comfortable and cute shirt for summer. However, the sizing runs large--I ordered the smallest size, and the blouse is beyond loose, closer to baggy. I generally buy either a small (6-8) or even a medium (10-12). The small is not flattering on me and gives the appearance of a less expensive garment.
lovely blouse -
I was very pleased with the eyelet blouse. The rayon fabric flows and hangs so nicely. It is a perfect summer blouse.
Flimsy Material -
By: Yvette from Toronto, Ontario
While this blouse looks lovely in the photo, in reality it turned out to be a very flimsy material. It would need shoulderpads to look as shaped as it does in the photo. Also the material is nearly translucent. Not what I had expected.
I ordered a medium and usually wear a 10 or 12. The blouse is extremely boxey fitting and very wide. I can even put it on without unbuttoning it. It is almost too boxey for wearing with a skirt and the fit looks nothing like the picture in the catelogue. A smaller size would be too tight in the shoulders.
