Susan Graver Printed Chiffon Tunic with 3/4 Bell Sleeves
Sorry QVC but this was a big mess. First the neckline is not as low as shown on model. It huge and body looking as one reviewer stated. Should have listened but the colors are beautiful in it. I had ordered the red. This top makes you look huge! Not for me.
Not a Flattering Tunic
I ordered this tunic in a medium, my usual size. It was huge on me, so I returned it for a small, also almost exactly as large on me - not a flattering tunic - boxy and makes a person look hippy. It was not nearly as pretty in person as on TV and the sleeves were ugly. If I would have kept it, I would have had the sleeves changed. I have had to have the sleeves on Susan Graver tunics changed several times because she seems to prefer wild sleeves. Wish she would just make the sleeves on tunics straight instead of wild. The chiffon tunics have such pretty patterns or floral designs, but the sleeves ruin it. I can't keep paying for the tunic and spending extra money to get the sleeves changed. Wish Susan would think about this. Also wish she would offer her other tops in something besides liquid knit. Almost all of her shows now are liquid knit and all of the ladies do not like it, so we don't buy. I'm sending this tunic back again.
Pretty peasant blouse
As others have noted, it is a long sleeved top, not 3/4. And for me as a short person, the sleeves are over my hands, so that is something of a drawback. I think the pattern and the color (I got orange) are very pretty, and I like the beading detail. I would wear it with a little shrug and hike the sleeves up a little to shorten them so they wouldn't present a problem. I do like the drape of the chiffon fabric.
Nice Top But Not For Me
I really liked this blouse, but the sleeves were way to long (not 3/4 as stated in the description). The blouse gapped oddly at the arm holes when I tried it on .
This shirt is even more beautiful in person! I bought the orange and the details and colors are so vivid! It washed beautifully and does not wrinkle, which is a plus! True to size and very figure flattering. Looks great dressed up with white jeans and strappy sandals. I get compliments every time I wear it!
Fit is great and style is sharp! Great top Susan! Many Susan styles in my closet always a great fit.
Wanted to Love....but Fabric too scratchy!
I wanted to love this tunic. Even sent back for a smaller size as they do run large. The sleeves are set in the bodice in a weird way and so do not make for a flattering shoulder line.......and the tunic is very long....even for me and I am 5 foot 6.........I like the beading and even the coloring and design of the fabric (I bought the neutral)......BUT the fabric is way too scratchy for me. I did not feel comfortable wearing this top. Tried it with several different pants......the whole cut is strange.....and just can't get past the itchyness of the fabric. Back it goes.
Love you Susan!
This top is so wonderful. I can't even explain it. I love this style. Bo Ho chic. I ordered the L in neutral and orange. I sent them back as the neutral was tight in my midsection and orange fill well. So I sent them back and ordered the XL, and they were huge. I reordered the blue and also the neutral. l just received the blue. Perfect! Now I hope the neutral will fit this time. If not, I'll order the orange. Susan, please make more of this style of top, as I'm not the biggest lover of liquid knit sometimes. Liquid Knit does accents my flaws. I also love your scarf vests. I used to shop every Saturday and do not enjoy it anymore. I can't find what I find on QVC, especially Susan Graver! Thank you for your style, your love of making all of us beautiful and talent to make a piece of material into a beautiful art piece. My husband wants me to clean some of the clothes in my multiple closets. I just can't throw out my Susan Graver. Thank you for making me feel beautiful again.
Oh Susan--- I just am in love with this top! I ordered the Orange in 2x and now have come back for the blue. I love the length and the fabric is very cool, flowy, and flirty. The print is very Boho from the 60's 70's era, yet still very modern, updated, and elegant. The embellishment is just the right touch and very well done. It can be worn casual as well as dressy. And, did I say the colour hues and patterns are GORGEOUS!! . I had expected to wear a tank or cami underneath, but, the way the color pattern is more concentrated at the top like an ombre effect, all I needed was a nude bra. Right now I'm watching your Sunday night show and just ordered your new v- neck beaded chiffon tunic in the awesome green. No doubt I will be back for the red one.
Really Pretty, but...
The workmanship on this blouse is beautiful, and I love the long bell sleeves, but the distribution of the print is awkward. I am a 14, and carry most of my weight around my middle, and this top enhances that very section of the body. I ignored my first impression which was that the models looked a little heavy on TV. You can definitely see this in the online photo. I was so enamored with the boho look, the sleeves, and the bead work that I made an impulse purchase. I am on the fence of sending it back. If only Susan would come out with this exact same top with the colors reversed: the dark areas across the middle, and the light areas at the top and bottom. I would buy all colors. Otherwise, I love the light weight fabric, and the fact that no cami is needed underneath,. A great summertime top that hides your arms, and can be worn very dressy.
A huge disappointment
I bought this blouse primarily because it was described as having 3/4 sleeves. Looking at the picture again, I realize that this is not so. It was pretty enough but, for me, a huge disappointment. The sleeves covered approximately 2/3 of my hands. And now I have to pay for the return postage.
PERFECT! More Like This Please!!
While I generally don't wear turquoise colors I couldn't resist ordering because of the styling. I've never gotten so many compliments as I did on this one! Was worried that the material might be a little scratchy but it was comfortable. Please Make More in This Type of Style - Purple/fuschia would be Awesome!!
