Sateen Pintuck Top
I Love It
I have this blouse in every color. I love each and every one. I do not wash it, I have it dry cleaned. No problems at all. I would not think of washing this blouse too much detail to try and iron. I would recommend this blouse to my friends.

I ordered 2 in the white. When they arrived I was very happy, nice fabric & fit. Then I washed them because I always wash new clothes before wearing. What a dissappointment! The sateen finish of the material was gone, they will require a lot of ironing and starching to look good plus they shrunk after washing on gentle cycle in cold water. I'm going to send them back! Truly disgusted with this purchase.

Nice top, but deceptive photographs
I own this top. It is nicely made and very flattering, but I have to speak up about a problem with the product photograph - a problem that I've seen throughout the Catherines website. If you look at all four images, especially the bottom image with the red top, the sleeves look very fitted and the cuffs appear to be very close fitting. I wear a 0X, and even on that size the cuffs are FOURTEEN inches in circumference (I measured them); they are a very wide jacket sleeve, not a close fitting cuff. The models pictured, even if they are wearing a 0X, do NOT have arms even half that big. There is simply no way. The cuffs must have been pinned in some way on the back to produce the effect that is pictured. I have run into this issue a lot on this website. I understand that they want to include a flattering photograph, but it makes it hard to make a decision, IMHO. If I were buying this top to go underneath a jacket, for instance, it would never work because the cuffs are so wide...but the photo makes it look like it has a slim fitting sleeve. I guess the easy answer is to not buy from a picture, but local stores don't seem to carry much inventory any more, and the availability of smaller sizes (at least in the locations near me) is pretty slim. This is a nice top, but it doesn't look like the picture.
