Denim & Co. Embroidered Stretch Moleskin Big Shirt
Pretty shirt, (BUT) Please Read This!
I was going to give this shirt a one-star. I read some of the reviews on this one before I ordered it. Because of the less than $12 price tag, I decided to take a chance. I gave it two-stars because the material is sooo soft on the outside, the length is good and the chambray color is GORGEOUS. However, I returned it because it DOES scratch & feel rough against your skin because of how the embroidery was done. The underside of the embroidery (which is on the inside of the shirt) is rough (the threads themselves feel rough). That is what scratches your skin and feels very irritating. Therefore, I can not see how washing it with fabric softener is going to help (as one review suggested). Someone mentioned that wearing a camisole might help. That MAY or MAY NOT help partially. Wearing a camisole will NOT help the scratchiness/irritation on your arms. The other issue that I had with the shirt that I received is the loose threads and unfinished button holes. Every button was getting caught in loose threads and the unfinished areas around the button holes. One might be able to wear a long sleeve shirt or turtleneck underneath and not feel the scratchiness (I don't know). However, I decided that was too much comprimising and too much trouble. I returned it can use the money towards something else.
Just a beautiful blouse in every color. I have Pink, Sage and Chambray.
Elegant, classy and a great fit. Works with jeans, skirt, or dress pants.
Pretty Shirt............Good Buy!
I like D & C moleskin and this one is unique with the fabric embroidered flower stitch..................I found the shirt to be comfortable to wear and had no problem with the fabric scratching.....................although I do wash my things before wearing and use fabric softener too......so maybe that helped..........I think that if you like a big shirt that is different, easy to care for and also at a great price you must try this shirt.....................my pink one is so nice..............perfect for work and again so easy to care for...................I am not a fan of clothes that have to be ironed too much or dry cleaned..............life is too short............................
I get a lot of compliments when I wear this. It is very beautiful. I wear it as a blazer over a turtle neck or a shell. That's what I thought a big shirt was for.
I purchased a similar shirt from a dept store but it pulled in the shoulders and upper arms and I gave it away. This is generous and I have no trouble with it binding. I am short so I am used to tops being long on me. This is a little long but when I get some spare time, I will turn up the hem. I have to hem everything.
I really like this.
Beautiful But VERY Scratchy !
I would have given this beautiful shirt five stars, but the scratchy inside of the shirt is absolutely unacceptable. The only thing that helps is to wear a silky camisole underneath to avoid having the inside threads irritate the skin. For the price, this shirt should have been lined with a very light material to avoid the scratching. I would recommend this shirt to anyone who wants a great looking, great fitting shirt - but I would warn them about the scratchy inside and to wear a camie underneath.
Scratchy, Scratchy, Scratchy
This is a beautiful shirt and I received many compliments when I wore it. However, I wore it once and sent it to the Goodwill as the embroidery was so terribly scratchy. I was so disappointed.
The shirt looks great, fits great, and the pink color is beautiful. However, all of this is irrelevant because the inside of the shirt is so scratchy from the thread that is used for the embroidery. Also, the finishing was poorly done on the inside--loose, scratchy threads were all over, long ends were hanging off the knots,etc. I would have cut off the threads myself if it had been more comfortable. I do not have particularly sensitive skin, but I just can't wear this. No one else has complained, so maybe I got a bad batch.
Purchased my normal denim & co size in this & it was way too small -- not even close to buttoning. Either mistagged or style runs small.
I will be ordering more colors
Much more then I expected. First mole skin
and I will buy more. It is not boxy and shapless
I purchased this is khaki. Love the shirt, the fabric and fit are great. True to size. How about this in darker colors???
Great Value, Quality and Ease
I must have 6 or more of these shirts, mostly in deep jewel tones (which strangely are not offered now). This is a fabulous fabrication, wears and washes well. It really looks like a much, much, much more expensive top. For me, a 1x is perfect and flattering- that is my normal size.
Heavy and boxy
Didn't like how it looked on. Quality shirt but just not for me. Kept because I missed window to return but have never worn it.
