SPROUTING VEG TUNIC
Bought this in the sale, great bargain! Having read previous reviews I ordered two sizes to be on the safe side because I am pear-shaped thinking I would need to size up but happily my normal sz 12 fitted perfectly with enough room for a thin top underneath on cooler days and the lower half of the tunic sitting comfortably over jeggings. It includes all my favourite colours with a quirky, unique design - love it!

pros and cons
On the positive side the colours are lovely with lots to choose from for matching with cardis/trousers or jeans, and the print is quirky and fun. On the negative I found this viscose quite firm so it didn't drape as well as some of the more silky feeling ones, and I found the fit didn't work for me. I'm bigger by one size on top than on the bottom (generally 10 on top, 8 for jeans /skirts). This top just fitted across my shoulders and chest but the part below that just swamped me even with the tie to try to cinch it in. Lovely top for someone who is more evenly shaped maybe!?!

Beautiful pattern but better a bigger size if you are between two
I love the pattern: itâ€™s quirky, unusual, without being garish.
However, at least in my case, with a pear shape (10 size for tees but 12 for trousers), I should have bought a bigger size (the 12). The tunic shape is right; to the naked eye it has the same width for the shoulders than for the hips. Also, a bigger size would have been better for wearing it with a long-sleeved top as in the pic.
I will keep it as a goal for loose winter excess..
