Rated 5 out of 5 by Sally10 Classy Casual
Soft and snuggly but light weight for late summer's cooler temps. Easy care fabric and an interesting design makes this shirt a favorite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CityWitch Wanted to Love It
I really wanted to love this top. It looked so beautiful when I pulled it out of the package. It was soft and the color was lovely - just as I imagined it would be! Then I put it on. The sizing is really off and seemingly distorted. The front and back width from arm hole to arm hole is MUCH larger and wider than anything of similar styling I've ever bought from J Jill in this size and yet, it seemed to me that if I were to order a size smaller it would be too tight acrossed the bust and I am NOT at all large-busted. I guess it's possible I just happened to get a defective item, but I don't want to get stuck paying twice to ship it back if that turns out not to be the case, and so I will be returning it without an exchange.
Another thing I noticed about this top is that while the fabric feels nice, it has a texture to it that prevents it from falling & draping properly. I tried it on with new Pure Jill slim-legged pants which are fairly smooth and still the top fabric "stuck" to the pants if I raised my arms or twisted to see the back and it remained bunched up acrossed my butt! Even if the top had fit I would be returning it because I do not have the patience for the constant tugging and readjusting this top would require with every movement. Again, it's so pretty I wanted to love it but....I can't.

This top is not what I expected, but I'm enjoying it anyway. The color is more muted and gray than in the photo, and the leaf design is all but invisible -- it's more a textural difference than a difference in color. But the fabric is super-soft and warm -- more like a light sweater than a tee. This will be nice in the fall, but the silk makes it too cozy for summer in my area.
Things to note: The sizing is shorter than most JJill "tunics" and much wider. The sleeves reach about 3 inches above my wrist ("bracelet length?"), another difference from the catalog photo. I'm wearing the sleeves pushed up, so that's not a big deal, but definitely something to keep in mind. I'm 5'7" and don't normally take the Tall sizes, but I would have chosen one this time if available, both for longer sleeves and longer front-back length. The top looks great teamed with JJill's navy range sweaters and scarves.
Overall, this top is extremely comfortable, and definitely week-end wear unless you work in an extremely casual place. I'm happy with the sale price, but wouldn't pay regular retail for this one -- it's just too expensive for casual wear.

This is a fresh and breezy casual top for in-between weather.
The colour is a subtle mid-blue, and the floral print is unusual and muted.
The fit is loose, but not too loose.
I'd say it's a whole lot more cotton than silk, though - it looks and feels like cotton to me, not a blend. Still nice, though!
Perfect for weekends.

I really liked how soft and silky this shirt was.
I was surprised by how subtle the leaf design was, it's very hard to see.
My overall feeling though, it seems very expensive for such a low key item.
