I'm small and thin and I found this top in size 0 to be too generous in the skirt. Not crazy about the 3/4 length sleeves, a bit tight and a little short for me. I also found the neckline to be oddly cut out and awkward, would have liked it better in a boat neck. That said, the fabric is plushy and fairly warm, the print is attractive in a greyish, bluish color, has a nice subtle sheen to it, and can be worn as a neutral with lots of colors. The skirt drapes nicely and I can imagine it fitting well on a somewhat bigger person. If it fit I would have worn it in cool weather with a high necked top underneath. A decent try, but I returned it.

Like the pattern & nice fit, but missed the "plush, velvety" part in the description - (was hoping to take it on a tropical getaway). For cooler season wear this is a great choice - easy to wear and classy looking.

As an older woman, I look for tops that are loose and longer. The sizing of every brand varies, so once I find brands I like and know their sizes, I don't fear purchasing something without trying it on. STP provides great information in the Specs portion of descriptions to let us know the overall length or inseam measurements.
This top will be a great go-to top for cooler weather. It washes and dries beautifully and is light enough to wear much of the year. Not at all flashy, but not entirely plain. It's perfect for someone my age and very comfortable without being totally frumpy. Joan Vass quality means it will likely serve me for a good while.

I bought this top because I loved the pink and white striped Tee by the same designer that I recently purchased. I love this one almost as much! The only reason I said "almost" is that I usually don't buy blouses with a lower neckline, but the overall line was too nice to pass up! This style is very complimentary to my shape, since I've recently had a double mastectomy. I'm working on slimming my tummy to match my new lack of bust, but it's a work in progress...this blouse is very flattering to the process! Love it!!
