Lovely versatile shirt
I have the Annabel top in both white and duck egg and am really pleased with it. I am a size 10/12 and do have a small waist so tie-front tops and dresses suit me well and I like the detailing they add to this shirt. The fabric is quite light, as other reviewers have said, but with light cami underneath it is not a problem. I usually wear these shirts with White Stuff reversible skirts (I have a few!) but also nice with a simple denim skirt, tights and boots. Very pretty, versatile shirt.

This blouse is made from a light cotton with stitched on flowers. They white one is a little bit seethrough. It has a tie at the back, which is great of giving it a bit more shape. One size down is a good fit. It only gapes a little bit at the chest area. It almost goes to the middle of the bottom. It has comfy, not too tight, not too wide , cap sleeves. A great white blouse with nice embroidery. But I am not so keen on collars and would have preferred it without one.

Lovely blouse but fabric too thin for me
I liked the styling of this top, with pretty cap sleeves, simple embroidery detailing and good fit across the bust, but was disappointed with the thin fabric. I'm not easily offended by a nude bra being visible but dislike flashing my underwear too much at work and didn't want to wear it with a vest as it would be too warm. I didn't have an issue with the height of the tie or the bow being at the front, although tying it sufficiently tight to give a nice shape did restrict some of the movement in the style. The tie did seem removable but not sure about tying it at the back, as some have mentioned, as it felt odd to have a tie that only gathered a 4" or so section where it was attached at the back. Shame, pretty top, but it had to go back.
