Dennis Basso Button Down 3/4 Sleeve Eyelet Blouse with Tank
Very Cute, Highest Quality!
I love this blouse. I'm a fan of eyelet, and it's difficult to find.
This is made with the "real", eyelet. I'm happy to see that it
has a mandarin collar, which is such a flattering detail.
The turquoise is a beautiful color. With or without the tank underneath,
this is such an adorable top.
I agree with other reviewers...the armholes on the tank are too big...my bra shows! I will have to wear both pieces at all times. I didn't want to size down and have the eyelet top to be too small...I needed the room for my fat arms! Other than that, this set is well worth the extra $...top quality otherwise. Dennis...PLEASE make in more colors...how about navy, a light peach, sage green, white and maybe a red too!!! :D
Tank Is Poorly Constructed
I truly wanted to love this set but I truly can't. I purchased it to wear when I visit Ireland in July. In Ireland, at times it is hot and at times it is cold. Two piece tops are great for this kind of weather. I loved the eyelet blouse. The raspberry color was bright and beautiful, I liked the fabric and the blouse was well constructed. HOWEVER, the tank was not. When the tank was cut out -- before being sewn -- the fabric must have slipped and the tank was cut out crookedly and sewn together crookedly. It was higher on one side than it was on the other. Also, it was very tight compared to the fit of the blouse. I thought about keeping the set just to wear the blouse with another tank or camie under it but I think that $69.72 is way too expensive for an eyelet blouse. I returned the set.
My blouse just arrived and it is gorgeous. I watched the hostess with it on the morning I saw it. I could tell it would look good and I am not disappointed. The color, quality and style of this top is amazing. The fabric is so soft. I tried it on right away and it is so comfortable and fits beautifully. Very flattering. I will be paying more attention to Dennis Basso garments.
This was my first Dennis Basso purchase, and quite frankly, it was my second choice. because a similar eyelet top offered by Denim & Co. (A22243) was no longer available in my size and color choice. Because this piece is a bit more expensive than the Denim & Co. choice,I had to think about it for awhile but ultimately purchased this set. Wow, was I ever pleased with this product. First, Dennis Basso pieces are packaged so well, with a nice piece of tissue folded into the tank and the eyelet blouse - - classy - - and comes with an additional button. Second, unlike the Denim & Co. piece, the fabric is excellent. Eyelet can be kinda stiff and starchy, even after you wash it, but Dennis Basso has used a high quality fabric that washes beautifully. I can't wait to take this duo on a Caribbean cruise to wear with white trousers. This is well worth the price I paid and hope Dennis will consider offering this item in more than the two colors now available.
Received this this the other day. Loved it. Beautiful fabric. Wish it was in more colcors. Also wish it'll get warm enough so that I can wear it. Going to Hilton Head end of month, maybe I'll get a chance to wear it them. Well worth the price, and I would get it for my mother, my friends, co-workers. Don't think the younger girls (mine anyway) would like it, but I love it.
This is the most glorious, soft fabric and the style is PERFECTION. My only problem is that the armholes of the tank are huge in my regular 1x size. I love it so much that I'm reordering both colors in xl...and if they don't work, I'll get the 1x tanks altered. Please please please - ALL DESIGNERS- don't make armholes so big in tank tops! Dennis, I own TONS of your coats and you are such a class act. Love your things!
