George Simonton Printed Top with Smocked Neckline and Cuffs
Little Girl With A Curl
printed top. When it looked good (on), it looked very very good, BUT when it looked bad (on), it looked horrid! My xs in pink multi looks SO GOOD ON! The 6 rows of smocking at the neckline frame my face when I wear my hair up. Gold earrings, a thin gold belt & gold shoes really pick up the gold in the print in the top. I intend to wear this with A188310 - G.S.brown Milky Knit 6-gore skirt, as well as dark brown pants during cooler months. There are plenty of colors to partner with for warm weather wear. PERSONALLY, I don't feel this top is too sheer to wear without a camisole.
GORGEOUS top - BUT...
The fabric in this top is SOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!! I wanted this top to work for me sooooo badly, but the style just didnt work. The smocking at the neckline didn't look right unless you pulled it down past the shoulders, which I would NEVER wear that look. Also a suggestion to GEORGE (whom I adore): Please add a shirttail hem to more of your tops...it's more flattering and youthful in many cases. Anyway, regretfully, I had to return this top - perhaps we could look forward to more items made of fabric with this type of pattern and color combos...simply GORGEOUS!
I am sorry
This top was not for me, very unflattering. I am top heavy, made me look even bigger. The color washed me out as well. I have some George Simonton items, wonderful.
Like another reviewer said, "I'm so glad I didn't read the reviews before buying this great Top. I love everything about it too. I don't find that I need to wear anything under it (Pink-Multi), size medium . The design is hardly see through. This Top is long enough for me to wear leggings too. I'm 5' 5", 145lbs. This Top covers a multitude and does it beautifully. I'd buy all 3 colors if I could. Thank you Mr. Simonton for your wonderfully creative style.
Love you George, But Not Flattering
Oh my this was a train wreck on..just made me look so dumpy. Just not flattering..sorry George.
George- great top! Very versatile- can wear off the shoulder or both sholders covered. I like it belted -looks great also. A light cami under this is good, but quite frankly, for eve. the print is enough to camoflage so don't think you'd need a cami under it, all depends on how comfortable one feels, I think. Got it in all 3 colors in XXS and fit is beautiful! A winner!
I am glad I didn't read any of the reviews prior to purchase. I bought 1 and called back and purchased 2 additional colors. Everytime I wear, I get a compliment. Ladies, it is a tunic length and is great with leggings-dress pants. I just wear a cami with it and it is wonderful especially this time of year. The fabric is soft and smocking is wonderful. I am short 5'2. It is a longer length but covers a multitude of sins and is very slimming. It is great to wear during the summer heat. Washes wonderful.........I just washed on gentle and placed on hanger to dry. LOVE It!
You can see through this top
I've come to the conclusion that when I buy any clothing I want it to be "ONE & DONE"
Mr. Simonton you can see right through this top. I 'm not about to add to it to make it possible for me to wear. Thats what we pay you for. OK? Got sent back.
The neckline is much to high, the elastic around the elbow area is uncomfortable. the body part is true to size, however I'm 5'3" & when I pulled it off my shoulders it looked like a dress just above my knees. It's very sheer for this price a cami should have been included. Back it goes.
A Perfect 10
I received this top today and am glad I did NOT read the reviews. I love everything about this item - the fit, the style, the color (pink multi), and the length. Some reviewers had issues about the cuffs and neckline, but I love it the way it is. George, PLEASE make more in different prints and colors
First, let me say I am a big George fan. However, this top just doesn't fit at all. The back pulls anytime I move my arms -- even though it's baggy on me in the body. The sleeves are the problem. They wont reach below my elbow, I can't wear them at my elbow because the elastic is uncomfortable, and if I push the sleeves above my elbow, it is very unattractive. I really am disappointed in this -- the top is a great length and fits well in a relaxed fashion through the body -- which I wanted, but the neck is too high and bothers me and the sleeves are just impossible. It is going back.
I bought the blue print. It reminds me of walking in a forest downhill with a lake at the bottom and the sunlight sending gold drops through the branches. The light weight material makes it floaty, not matronly.
