    I don't normally wear this style, but thought I'd give it a try at the STP price. This shirt is much nicer in person than in the photos (I ordered the red). I was afraid that I would look like some sort of 1950s farm girl in the 'gingham' type pattern, but actually the cut of this shirt is very interesting--seamed and fitted through the body, with little gathers and puckers in the sleeves, giving it a definitely contemporary look. It is also lined with lightweight cotton, which surprised me. The one caveat is that it seems to run a tad small. It is definitely tighter in the shoulders than I would expect, and very close-fitting through the body. For reference, I ordered a small, and I'm 5'4" and weigh 115 lbs, and normally wear a 4/6 in tops. I haven't washed it yet, but I would think that the dryer would not be a good option for this fabric.

    I purchased this shirt specifically because I have a long torso and thin arms. The shirt runs small - normally I take a small and I ordered a medium which fit me properly. The shirt is exceptionally well made but if you have muscular or large arms this may be a problem. The medium's sleeve opening circumference when buttoned is 11". From the shoulder the shirt length is about 27". I am 5'6" and 120# with short legs (31" inseam) so this shirt works well with my body type.

    This blouse is extremely well made. I ordered a small and it fits well. Not super tight, but flattering with the way it's sewn. (I am 5ft 8in and 135lb). My only complaint might be that it is very long. So long, that I will have to tuck it in. The sleeves are rather long also, they end just above my elbows. The cuffs on the sleeves are just a smidge too tight (and my arms are not fat). The color I ordered is no longer available. It is a very pretty blue. All in all, I will keep the blouse, but it could be better!

    This shirt fits snuggly for it's size. If you question what size to buy, I suggest to buy the bigger size. Or if you don't what it really form fitting, buy the bigger size.

    I ordered a Size Small...and this was way too small! Also, the color was more of a golden-green - not quite what I expected. I loved the style and quality; however I had to return it.

    I'd give this five stars if the sleeves were just a tad less snug... I have muscular arms, as I lift weights at the gym, and the sleeves are somewhat tight in my regular size M. The body is a very tailored fit, and so very attractive, but if you are busty, it may be difficult to close. Therefore, if you prefer a bit more room, you may want to size up. I found the green to be soft and appealing.
