Closeouts. Love the idea of a button-up shirt, but hate the baggy look? Eye's cotton sateen shirt has a silhouette-flattering shape with pintuck details right under the collar, shaping seams and a corset-style gather at the back.

I got 3 of these wonderful numbers and love their colour,sheen and quality. These shirts are figure-flattering, easy to wash and press - even though you wouldn't think they are. I toss them into the washer on regular cycle, using cool water; hang them to dry, and while the shirts are slightly damp, (or use a spray bottle to re-dampen), I boldly press right over the elastic at the back in a series of vertical swipes, steam setting (pulling the elastic gently with one hand helps. The "pleats" fan out and all fall into place. For the front do the same, start from top (at the shoulder) in a downward swipe, and it works. (At least for me, and I'm no ironing diva!)
Excellent purchase. Great for slightly pear shapes who wish to highlight their slim waist from just under the bust area. The corset detailing at the back trims things up nicely in the right places as well. Quality items as always from EYE

Great quality and great looks -- I really like this blouse. The tucks in front and French cuffs dress it up from the typical button-front blouse. The gathering in back makes it very shape-flattering while allowing some give for those of us over 50 whose waists aren't what they used to be. Fabric is excellent quality, lilac color is rich. Only minor drawback is I have to take it in for pressing as the gathers make it too challenging to do a good job myself.
