I Like This Top, Except....


This is the Broadcloth Scalloped Shell in white. The fit is true to size and slightly loose around the hip area. It doesn't have a zipper, so I can't size down. The white color is sold-out but still pops back online frequently.

The cotton broadcloth material is prone to wrinkles and the cute scalloped petals have a tendancy to 'curl up' with wear. 

The wrinkles and scallops did steam out after wear, but I'll have to come up with a way to anchor them so they don't keep rolling up.

Overall this top is comfortable and chic for summer. It's nicely made, with details like the satin binding at the armholes and facing the inside of the collar. On the white top the satin details are done in a shade of off-white and look elegant against the solid white. The top is machine washable too.

Do you own this top? What are your thoughts about it?
