Dennis Basso Matte Jersey Boat Neck Top with Split Sleeves
LOVE THIS TOP!
I can't beleive the negative reviews on this top. I purchased it in the red and a size smaller than my usual QVC size, and I absolutely LOVE IT! It fits like it was made for me! It's the perfect tunic length, and I wore it yesterday with black leather (fake) leggings and heels. I put on a necklace and a Joan Rivers sequined scarf and got a ton of compliments. It's my favorite top in my wardrobe. I came back to see if there was a wheat color to wear with another pair of pants. Dennis, Please make this in wheat.
Nicely cut but the fabric looks cheap and feels yucky against the skin.
This was a tough review
I absolutely love everything about the tailoring of this top. Dennis obviously put a lot of thought into the design. And it shows! The sleeves are exquisite; the shoulder detail is just lovely. Also, the pomagranite color is gorgeous and the black is just perfect for dressy wear or with jeans for a retro boho look. So where's the problem? It's the fabric. I thought I could get past the shiny "polyester" looking fabric that is described as matte jersey. I REALLY wanted to get past it and keep this top. But this morning - fully dressed and ready to walk out the door - I took a last look in the mirror and could NOT do it. I took it off and will be returning. As other reviewers have mentioned, the fabric is terribly shiny and really detracts from the garment's appeal. Dennis, if you ever choose to do this design again, I'm THERE if it's done in a better quality fabric! I hate to part with this style, but I know I'll not wear it because of the shine.
Not as seen in TV
I got the red one, not the same red as TV; too large for a Large; cheap material. Returned!
I did not care for this tunic too much. It did not fit well and the shiny color was off to me. Sent it back.
Very lovely but...
this top is beautifully cut and the fit is wonderful. Not clingy in any way , which is what I wanted. I got the black and the material is think enough to be warm when it is chilly out but light enough for spring but the jersey is a little too shiny. I have alot of matte jersey tops and none are this shiny. I will keep this top because as I pointed out it is cut wonderfully and it is so hard to find beautiful boat neck tops with this much style. This is only my second Dennis Basso piece and I must say he is my new favorite designer. I will continue to look though his collection on QVC.
Not for me...
I don't think I was fully aware what "matte jersey" was and I purchased this top thinking it would be like t-shirt material. This fabric clings to every lump and bump on my body and is not flattering at all.
Wonderful color – pomegranate Nice soft material.. however too large.
I am 10-12. Ordered medium. . too big.. One and half size smaller would be better.
