Rated 1 out of 5 by This is a cute shirt. It's supposed to be a looser fit, so I'm going to go with TTS for the petite sizes. I got a 00P, which was a great fit for me. The pockets are huge, but fortunately, it's not too noticeable on the darker color of the blue (bird) motif. The quality is questionable; the shirt I received had a bunch of loose threads that I had to cut off. My main gripe with this shirt is that it shrinks A LOT (as rayon that hasn't been preshrunk does)! I hand washed in cold. I'm not sure how long it was before, but the front is 18" now. It's ridiculous how it can go from a near perfect fit. with some length to spare, to being completely too short and unwearable! If possible, I recommend sizing up a couple sizes to accommodate for the shrinking or just have it dry cleaned. Unfortunately, I cannot size up as the fit will be too boxy and the regular sizes are just too big in general. Very disappointed. Not worth the $68 price tag! May 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth the sale price. I received this shirt in coral, size 2P. I am around 117lbs with a 32c cup and have a fairly small upper body. It did fit true to size, and the sleeves were the perfect length. Because it was in coral, I would imagine I didn't experience the complaints others had about the shirt being too sheer. It is fine with the right colored bra. As you can see in the photos, this a shirt that can't go un-ironed. With a casual, loose fitting shirt as this one is, you'd think it's a great grab for in a pinch, but this one takes some extra care. Otherwise the quality is what you'd expect. The fabric is light and breezy and very comfortable and soft. I do like the pocket detailing. My only qualm is the slightly irritating structure of the shirt.The shoulder seem falls nearly on my shoulders, however the armhole is sewn low so that when I reach up or out, the shoulder rises and the shirt looks too tight. I am small chested, and couldn't imagine this fitting a petite girl with a larger bust. Shirt is very baggy throughout torso. There is some fraying on the stitching. As for the color, it is a true coral, though online it looks more like a tomato. Expect something a bit more orange, and lighter. Wouldn't pay full price, but it is worth $30.00 and is great for layering. June 30, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Way too sheer I ordered this in the mint and the color was absolutely darling. Unfortunately the fabric was far too sheer for a day shirt and with a tank underneath it just looked awkward with too many lines. The shirt also arrived with a few loose threads which made me nervous to wear it. I sized up (usually a small and ordered a medium) and it fit great but the quality just wasn't worth keeping.

MINT Style #:30879266 Our favorite buttondowns are far from buttoned-up. For a boy-meets-girl look, we love this silky, swingy one from Maeve with cuffed denim and loafers. Clara Buttondown
