I paid more than I'd usually pay for a shirt at STP on this, but when I saw the original price on the tag, I saw why. It's a great shirt; no flaws that I can see. Fit is true, and print is cute. Just what I was hoping for.

Because of the Lycra, I ordered down a size from what I'd normally get--got a 4, while my measurements are 35" bust/27" waist. I love the bug print and bright ribbon in the placket, but unfortunately the fit was much too big in the waist (looks more or less okay from straight on, but in profile it flares way out in front and back). And unlike what the other reviewer reported, the shirt I got was too short--too short, anyway, to easily tuck into mid-rise pants. (I'm 5'8 with a proportional-length waist.) Boo! I tried washing and drying it to see if I could shrink it at all, but it just made the fabric come out dimpled. Well, okay, fine. It's a casual shirt anyway, so I'm not tearing my hair out over it. Maybe I can pair it with a high-waisted skirt and a belt.

A wonderful shirt for the entomologically inclined. Yes it's nerdy, but the vintage bug drawings are irresistible. Sizing is relatively generous but essentially true to size, length is a bit on the long side but not ridiculous. Fabric has a fabulous, high-quality feel. Win!
