Rated 5 out of 5 by KitkatTX Just Lovely!
Fabric/Care/Construction: This blouse is silk, not cotton, and the ikat print and colors are lovely. The product description states it must be dry cleaned; however, the care tag states that it can be machine washed in cold water, line dried, and touched up with a low iron as needed. I intend to dry clean mine to preserve the fabric finish and colors. Nice construction with French seams. The tiny black buttons are sewn on with green thread (a nice dressmaker touch), and there's an extra button sewn onto the care tag.
Fit: I am usually a size small/6 and 36B, and I bought the small. I also tried on the x-small. I liked the fit of the small best, as I wanted more of a flowy, baby-doll fit to wear over slim crops; however, it's not so voluminous that it can't be tucked into pants or a skirt. If you want yours more fitted as shown on the model in photo #2, then size down.
The fabric is sheer enough to require a cami. I wore white, but it also looks good with a black cami or any of the other beautiful colors in the ikat print (I also tried a tank, but the straps were too wide).
Very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hautehippiemom gorgeous ikat peasant blouse
Another gorgeous peasant blouse! I love the colors and the ikat print and the fact that this is silk. I think this top runs big. I tried it in a M and a L, and purchased the medium because the large was just too voluminous and pregnant looking. The medium is perfect and very flattering. By the way this would be a great top for a pregnant woman if she bought it larger than needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HBJean The picture doesn't do this top justice!!
The colors are vibrant, the fabric feels like silk, and the details are lovely. It is so versatile as it can be worn now with skinny jeans, sweater and boots and in the summer with a pencil skirt and strappy sandals. Lovit it!! It does run big, I ordered a medium and may exchange for a small (I am 5'8", 155lbs).
