DANDELION SPOT TUNIC
Half and Half
Reading the reviews below I was nervous about trying this on but glad I did. The health warning about the see through 'back' relies on this tunic being warn with leggings and a vest [loop scoop in navy and crop leggings go really well]. More fitted at the top/sleeves and looser at the bottom and the pattern and material is very pretty. This tunic is not for everyone [see other reviews] however, give it a go you might just love it!

You'll look back in anger......!
As I opened the parcel, my hopes were raised. The tunic is a gorgeous colour, and the print on the front really pretty. I slipped it over my head with high expectations.
True it was a bit long - but then I'm only 5'3" so used to that. I still liked it.
Then I turned around and looked at the rear view in the mirror.
The fabric at the back is REALLY clingy. What is 'loose and drapey' at the front sticks like a limpet to your underwear at the back and looks awful. I tried it over jeans - you could see all the pockets through the fabric. I tried it with leggings and it stuck to my legs. I tried it as a dress with plain underwear and a short slip underneath but still it clung to me more tightly than a nervous child on their first day at school.
Back it went!

This tunic has a lovely feel to it.
Liked everything about this apart from the longer back... Why are they making everything longer at the back??? It just skims over my bottom. Don't seem to be having the same problem as some of the other people.
Lovely.. Hope it washes well..

Had to return....
As has been said above this top is lovely at the front but awful at the back. Far too long and droopy. Wanted to like it but couldn't.

Oh dear White Stuff
What a shame. This looks so lovely from the front and really flattering.
However from the rear it's a totally different story. The thin knitted fabric is see through and does not hang at all well. Could you please remake with the same fabric front and rear, you can still keep the sleeves as they are currently. I am so disappointed.

Agree with AnnaB
Thought this was so pretty on the hanger and the 8 looked lovely and fitted perfectly at the front, but the back.... oh dear, it really accentuated my backside, which is already not so small, I was gutted as it looked so lovely at the front. If you are not so large in that region then this might hang better on you, but as you can see from the photo the item doesn't sit too well on the bottom of the mannequin used.
I am pleased, though, that this print is available on other garments that would be more flattering on me, so I'll have to go for one of those instead.

Not for me
I loved the other tunics similar to this, such as the mint tea one. This is a pretty colour and the dandelion fabric is a lovely print. But I found the shape unflattering - it really clung to my bum where the others don't, and I hate the droopy longer back - I didn't notice this in the pictures or I wouldn't have ordered it. Very disappointed.

shame, very disappointing
This tunic is true to size and hangs nicely but it's a shame about the different material on the sleeves and back of the tunic which is so thin/cheap (why ,why,why ??) that you need to wear a vest underneath.
If it wasn't for this I would have kept it -pity.
