Nice but too small
I have ordered these shirts in the past and loved them. I ordered 3 more when they were on sale. I should have read the reviews before ordering the size. They are all small but I'm keeping them because I plan to fit into them eventually. Love the 3/4 sleeves.
Order up 1 or 2 sizes
These appear to have had the same re-sizing as the long sleeve version - in other words, they are now made much smaller than before. So you should order up 1 or 2 sizes to get the size you're most likely expecting. If you want it to be pretty fitted, order 1 size larger than usual. If you want it a little loose, order 2 sizes larger. That has been my experience. And with these shirts I let them tumble dry for a couple of minutes but then I hang them to dry the rest of the way. That way, I don't need to iron them at all. And I may be avoiding any shrinkage issues that way too.
Nice 3/4 sleeve blouse
Very nice 3/4 sleeve blouses for the price. Because of other reviews about shrinkage, I ordered a size larger than usual and am glad. The paisley pink fabric required no ironing when hung up immediately out of the dryer. The paisley fabric did not shrink very much. The other solid light pink was a different thinner fabric and it came out of the same dryer load looking very wrinkled and required lots of ironing. The light pink also shrank more but they are both keepers, I just have to iron one of them.
Very pretty, good color, but should have ordered one size larger - Even washing in cold water, the fabric shrinks!
Great shirts and fun to wear
I ordered one of these blouses with the 3/4 sleeve length just to see what they were like. I too ordered a size up from what I ordinarily wear because I don't like my blouses to be so tight fitting. I was so happy with the fit, and lightness of this article of clothing that I have since that time ordered every color and will now order more from these new colors. The material has a little sheen and stretch to it and doesn't shrink after washing. I love just taking it out of the dryer and wearing it. The colors have remained very, very close to original and I like the fact that the second button from the top is still a modest distance down. Thanks Chadwicks for a great wardrobe piece in so many colors.
Smaller than usual size
I was looking for cotton shirts with some stretch since Land's End stopped their 3/4 long sleeve line of shirts with some stretch added. I like the prints especially but would order one size larger than usual. I'm a 34C and these shirts were a bit tight around the bustline. I likely will order more as I do like them but will order one size larger.
Pretty, pretty shirts. I almost ordered all the colors. Pink paisley, blue paisley, pink w/dots and navy w/dots. These shirts are very pretty in color. Very summer colors. Great material texture. I have blue jewelry to match and I will be looking for ice pink earring for my pink w/ dots and pink paisley. Thanks Chadwicks.
