Susan Graver Velvet Burnout Button Front Blouse with Side Slits
I ordered cream, unwittingly, thinking it was white. My fault, so it went back. But I did take note before sealing the garment up in the return bag that the collar was fabricated a bit too heavy for the rest of the garment and as a result didn't rest well around the neck. The fabric was a bit itchy around the neck as well. I have a very sensitive neck so even if I was happy with the color I probably would have returned it due to the collar issues. This item had a nice long length (tunic like) and the burn-out design is lovely. If you don't have my concerns you might give it a try. It is a very dramatic/festive item for dressing up and perhaps worth a try.
This blouse hangs like a sack. The sleeves are way too long and the cuffs don't button tight so they hang to your fingertips. Not one of Susan's better efforts.
I'm totally satisfied with this blouse and wish Susan would bring it back in more colors for fall and winter. I ordered it in a large and the fit is perfect.
Beautiful, dressy Fabric
I bought SG blouse, plus size in black and teal blue.Very pretty. Fits perfect except need to shorten sleeves (too long). I am 5' 2" tall, Need petite blouses Susan. I have many of her outfits and have had many complements . I love her designs. Can be worn any where. When I see a grease stain, Iapply small amt. of Dawn , rub gently and wash in gentle cycle, hang on clothes hanger to dry. I never have to put them in dryer.
love this blouse
I purchased the white blouse. love it susan's sizing is true to fit, I'm a 3X I like to wear my tops loose.
I live in Hawaii and it is perfect for our weather all year round.
Will go wonderfully with my antique brooches
I feel this will be a lovely blouse as a backdrop to my antique brooch collection I like the burnout, for it adds a lightness to the blouse and I do tend to get warm. I am happy with my purchase and have put it up for the Fall/Winter season.
This is a very pretty blouse, but when I read the measurements I knew I had to go down a size. When I tried it on it still fit me like a tent! I probably could have gone down two sizes. I do not like to send things back and waste shipping money, so I will keep it and wear it like a jacket over a turtleneck, but i would never buy it again.
Design Of Pattern Is Scaled Too Large
This is a lower quality fabric and an unflattering design on the fabric. It's too shiny and way OVERPRICED. Large Flowers and Large Leaves and throw in a Large Swirl comes across as sloppy in thought with the fabric design. The fabric is not crisp and with a laundering will just be flimsy. A disappointment.
Surprised by the negative reviews
I purchased in Black 1x. Sizing is spot on. It looks very nice over a camesole I have. Perhaps the lighter colors look less attractive?? I am happy with mine in black. Would prefer other darker colors like burgundy or dark green. I can imagine how it might look less luxurious in light colors.
Nothing to rave about
I agree that this blouse is cut skimpy and the material does look strange. It is just not worth the money. Bought the teal in 1x will return it pronto!
A Real Burnout!
I usually love Susan Graver and I own a lot of her pieces. This blouse, however, is going straight back. It looks like it came off the rack from the Dollar Store. The fabric is cheesy and the cut skimpy. I can't believe it's from Susan.
