Do not order because this is the cheapest goods and the pattern is not constant, there are large areas where there is no striping, so please DO NOT waste your time and money, I bought three and they are all being returned. This is my first Basso purchase and my last!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopFromHome WHY IS THE BACKGROUND BEIGE???
I had read the comments on this top prior to ordering. One said the fabric was horrible/odd/like umbrella material? The fabric is exactly what it was intended to be. Perhaps the previous reviewer had never come across this particular fabrication before, but I found it to be fine. It's not "stiff", but it's not intended to be a soft cotton blend either. A few other reviewers commented about how crazy long it is (even for a tunic). I am petite and tiny at 5' 2.5" and 112 pounds. I LOVE tunics that come down to almost mid-thigh (approx. 32"), but this was quite a bit longer. In flats, being petite, it would look odd/too long, BUT, I put on a pair of 2 1/2 inch heels, put a belt around the waist and bloused it ever-so-SLIGHTLY and it was GREAT!! Not overwhelming for my petite frame at all!! I did appreciate the small side slits for a little more movement since the buttons do not go all the way down the shirt. I didn't see the side slits in the on air presentation nor on the online pics and was hoping they were there because otherwise it would be restrictive.Thirdly another reviewer indicated that it was very very tight in the bust and the armholes hung low. I'm not sure what they are referring too. As I shared, I am petite and tiny, but I am large busted at 34D-DD. The chest area on the XXS that I ordered was NOT TIGHT at all. It fit perfect (which amazed me) and the armholes were a perfect cut...a non-issue...for me anyway, and I do not have big arms at all.
Probably the only questionable thing for me is that the background color is an OFF-white/beige color and not a "white". I was wondering about that when I saw the online pics and on-air video, but it was truly hard to tell. I was hoping I was wrong. I ordered the navy because I think Navy and White is a crisp summer look and was planning to wear the top with some white ankle-length dress capris to work. However the background was indeed an Off-white/biege-y color. So, not sure if I will keep or perhaps try to exchange for another color. I mean, it doesn't look "bad" in the navy and off-white, but if it were navy and true white it would have been crisp and fantastic.
For the price, I may return....I guess I have about 25 more days to debate it with myself. :)
Hope this review was helpful!!
p.s. I do find the sizing on Dennis Basso items to run on the larger size (even for XXS) through the body. I have purchased some winter coats and spring jackets from him in the past and albeit I love the quality and most designs, I've found that for XXS's they are still surprisingly a little long or larger.

I wanted to love this tunic. As a matter a fact, I bought two colors. However, it has some flaws that forced me to send it back. It's EXTREMELY tight over the hips and since it doesn't button all the way down, it's not like I could leave a few buttons open on the bottom to make it work. It's a beautiful tunic, but if I had read the other reviews first, I wouldn't have wasted my money. I've learned a lesson!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jasminecage Love this shirt I bought every color
I first just bought the coral color and loved it so much that I bought all the other colors, this is well made and I get so many compliments, both my daughters have both bought some. they are a little long but with tight jeans or jeggings or a skort they look so good. I am 5.4 and 110 pounds and the medium is perfect.

I love this top! It is long, but I rarely wear animal prints and received many compliments.

I ordered in 1X but found the top not generous enough around the hips. Returned.

I took a chance on this one in the olive. The fit was actually ok on me, but my hips are not very round. What surprised me was the feel of the fabric. It's like a polyester umbrella! Not soft on the skin, and no give whatsoever. It is quite long, could be cute w/ some shorts or capris but too bad about the fabric. Another negative: VERY electrostatic.
Rated 1 out of 5 by QVCsbest This is more like a dress...
Got the small, thought about keeping it as a dress because I liked the print. Armholes still too big. Not a tunic by a long shot.
