Rated 5 out of 5 by ScottishLass Simple and lovely!
I like the shaping of this linen shirt. It's very flattering. I ordered two shirts from J.Jill in XS because they were reported to run large. They are pretty true to size as it turns out, so I need to exchange for a small, which I am awaiting arrival of. This XS was just too tight across the chest. It's beautiful linen and should go with just about everything in my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Max49 Comfy Top!
This a very flattering top, fits perfectly. ( I ordered my reg. size ). I got the blue color, it's a beautiful color of blue, and the longer length is just perfect for a tall customer without having to order a tall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by abax The fit is perfect for wearing over a cami or tank.
Very comfortable to wear with leggings and particularly
useful in places that are over-airconditioned in the summer.
The color shown is wonderful with jeans of just about any
I'd still like to request that JJILL offer the great shelf bra
tanks in a variety of colors. The several I have are wearing
out from constant use and are greatly missed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatriciaToo J.Jill linen = great quality product
You cannot go wrong with linen. J.Jill linen is always of predictably good quality, lasts a looooong time and is well designed so it falls beautifully on the body.
This shirt has a wonderful earthy color which goes with everything. I could not be happier!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wendy15 Color disappointed
I returned this shirt because it was too big, but I would have anyway because the color was sort of blah. I thought Hyacinth would be a complex lavender blue, but it was too pale and washed out. Last year's pin tucked linen tunics in yellow, turquoise green and melon were more vivid and summery, hope you can reissue it in more tones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mdog Nicer than I expected
It was difficult to locate this in my size. Maybe y'all have almost sold them all. I hope you don't discontinue the style. I bought the hycinth color in M.
Am 5'7", 140lbs. It is roomy and could stand to be a slimer fit, but I love It all the same. The linen big shirts are much too large in the middle in the M. I like this style much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Birdsinger Nice, but not perfect
I ordered this because I don't like the cut of the ubiquitous linen "Big Shirt." I thought this shirt's shape would not be so boxy and it isn't, but still runs quite large as most of J. Jill items do. I can't order down because I take an xsp, though I have seen some xxp's and I hope I see more in the future.
The linen isn't the softest linen I've seen in J. Jill apparel, but is light without being see-through in the flax color, which is the only color left in my size. I wish they had a bigger stock in hyacinth and white.
One reason I'm writing this review is that the neckline is too low, as has been on quite a few items I've purchased in the last two seasons or so. I have installed a hook and eye on the back of the front plackets of several items now, including this one. I am 5' 3" and order a petite so other people must be having the same problem. I don't want to wear a cami under this or other warm weather apparel.
After I had already altered as above, which means I can't return the shirt, I discovered that the button and buttonhole were reversed on a cuff, so I am now trying to decide what to do about that. I guess I will have to learn how to make a buttonhole.
Final analysis: I am pleased with the shirt in that it is a flattering style and compares positively with the linen "Big Shirt," but the sewing quality and neck design could be improved.
