I love the fabric, style and cut of this shirt. It does run small overall. I am a size 4 in tops, and this shirt in the brown color just fit--any smaller and I would have had to return it. I did have one problem with this shirt. The sleeves are very, very tight around the bottom (where the color band is). I have super-skinny arms, so this was a surprise. I washed it and then line-dried it, stretching the sleeves a bit and they're fine now. I'm hoping it was just this particular shirt. I just ordered another one in a different color; hoping it fits well, too!

It's difficult to distinguish in photos, but this item's neckline actually consists of variegated layers of raw edged fabric. I really liked the color combinations and it seemed to be not top quality but still fairly well made and unique in design, all of which holds true. I do also wash and dry clothing in such a manner as to not ever have problems with shrinkage or distortion. But after just one washing the raw edge layers around the front neckline changed shape to appearing as if pulled out of kilter, like maybe it was used to support a bowling ball or something - or maybe worn by someone whose head is beach ball sized - neither of which occurred. It's not been pulled on in any way. Final result, the lower third of the neckline protrudes outward 1/4" or more. I've not ever returned an item after washing - until now.

First, the Evening Sand color is not a light tan as it is in the picture, but instead is more of a light peach/pink. I decided to keep the two shirts I have anyway. The organic cotton feels great, was a decent price, and though some don't like the shaggy material on the neckline and sleeves, I actually like it. The problem I have with these shirts is 1) they are thin enough that a sports bra or tank top does not look good underneath them, and 2) after a couple of washes, they have more of a boxy fit. I wish they were longer and had more of a slim fit. I'm torn on whether or not to send these back.

I got two, both are going back; the neckline accents of different contrasting colors looked good in the picture but QA must have been asleep on the two I got. Mine were sloppy and looked odd with varying widths of the material. The material was on the thin side as well, (but would be a good summer weight shirt if I were keeping).

This fabric has a great feel. The color is pale and I usually don't like the rolled effect at the edges, but in this case I'm so pleased with the fabric that I'll wear it to workout and on the weekends.

I'm a bit chunky so I don't care for tight shirts. This one is borderline. I bought two, one fit, the other was too tight. So keep in mind these are a bit form fitting. The colors are really mellow and pretty. Fabric is light and soft.

I bought several of these nice shirts. They are not boxy, but not tight fitting either. Plus, I like how the sleeves are not up around my shoulders, which in my opinion, breaks the line and doesn't look good if you have the least bit of flab underneath the arms. Just wish the colors were a little brighter, but they aren't that bad. Great price for organic cotton, too.
Best Uses: Summer fun
Cons: Colors could be brighter
Pros: Flattering Fit, Organic Cotton, Sleeve length is perfect
