Too big in the upper arms and shoulders.
I love the print, the material, but it just did not fit my body style.

SHRUNK AFTER HAND WASHING
I purchased this as a gift for my mother and she washed it by hand in mild detergent, hung to dry and was so upset when she tried to put it on and it shrunk. I would not recommend this to anyone, especially since it was a gift. I was horrified, but glad it was my mother, a family member that understood that sometimes we purchase items that are lemons. Catherine's has never let me down before and I was surprised that this happened. I will see about returning this item, if I can since it was laundered. I paid a nice price for this blouse, not to mention the "makeup" gift I purchased for Mom after the first gift was a big let down.

Notice that the description says a SLIVER stripe, not SILVER. There is no metallic detail on this top. The stripes are gray-blue, maybe periwinkle, and the circles off-white. I haven't washed it yet, but the fabric doesn't crush and appears to be quite wrinkle-free. The sides have insets in which the stripe is turned horizontally--a very cute detail, I think, which doesn't seem to be visually widening. I always appreciate the slits on the sides.
