A mixed bag
I was really looking forward to getting this as it looked lovely in the catalogue. I went for the grey as I thought it would be easiest to match to the rest of my wardrobe.
The colour is not that warm, so it was a bit draining on me. The fit is pretty straight up and down, so as another reviewer has mentioned it is a bit frumpy, which is a shame as it would have been much better a little shaped. I don't think I could size down and get my arms in as these are pretty snug in my usual size.
I was expecting the chiffon to be on top of a jersey layer, which it isn't. So even in the grey it is a bit see through - nothing major but as this is something that definitely needs to be worn for show, this is a bit of a shame.
The pattern is lovely and I may yet decide to hold onto this because it is that bit different - but it could be a pricey mistake, just can't decide.

Lovely fabric, but shape didn't work for me
The fabric is great and the design of the front is really pretty and special. But the fit didn't work for me - I'm a fairly average shaped size 10/12. I looked frumpy, which was a pity as I really like it and wanted to buy it. WS sizes are usually big so most of my WS is in 10, but the 12 was about right. It'll probably look great on someone else, but it's going back I'm afraid.

Lovely shape perfect with skinny jeans
This top is so much more than a tee shirt. It is very pretty and a lovely shape. Many people commented on how lovely the top looked. Good fit also, true 10 I would say. Considering buying it in grey as well ....
