Signature Silk Cotton Blouse
This blouse is comfortable and an excellent fit.
The color doesn't quite go with what I wanted to wear it but, but will do for now.

Not machine washable
The label says the shirt is machine washable, but after I washed the shirt, the facing inside the button placket is a shredded mess.

Love wearing this out to dinner in the evening
The silk cotton blend is very comfortable and easy to care for, is a great all occasion blouse

I loved the color of this blouse, but the fabric was disappointing. It felt like it should be labelled cotton-silk, not silk-cotton and the buttons kept coming undone when I wore the blouse. Before I even wore it, I had to sew on the spare button to replace the one that was smashed, inside the plastic wrapper.

good styling well made
good styling, lately size s has become too big for me (I have not changed) and many styles do not have xs.

sized up--fit like a dream! Nice quality.
This is a very good quality silk-cotton broadcloth shirt. The tailoring is superb. The material feels like high thread count cotton, without the sheen of silk. It is not a summer weight blouse. I would not wash or dry this blouse in the machine.
Crazy Sizing: influenced by the candid and terrible reviews, I decided to size up from my normal 1X. I have an hourglass figure and my bust is 44 inches. So I ordered a pink and a purple 2x and they both fit like they were made for me. The bust is slightly looser on the purple.
I also ordered a 1X in another color and will return it. This size was a disaster! It is approximately a misses 16 and at least 3 inches too small in the chest. I'm pleased with my two new blouses because I really like the style and the tailoring. They do not look cheap and I thought the price was very reasonable. I would have preferred these blouses had they been silk fuji and would have paid more for that. Buttons also do not seem cheap, btw, though they are not as nice as traditional fabric covered buttons. All together: worth ordering if you can find the right fit for you and need a tailored blouse with a nice neckline.

It ran small so I can only use it as a "jacket"
I was disappointed in sizing. It is small prior to being washed so can only be worn as jacket with the matching sleeveless top that I also purchased in this order.

Not wrinkle-resistant, feels like moleskin
The attempt to make it wrinkle resistant is its downfall. I think having a cotton component was the reason the attempt was made at this wrinkle free blouse, since there are 100% cotton wrinkle resistant blouses. The blouse definitely has wrinkles like any other silk-cotton blouse. However, the feel is not like either silk or cotton. It feels like 100% polyester microfiber moleskin so the luxury of silk is lost. I'ts ok. I'll wear it to work. The problem is I ordered one for my friend for Christmas and didn't have time to find another gift, and my friend wasn't as delighted as you'd expect from a silk blouse.
