Denim & Co. 3/4 Sleeve Button Down Eyelet Shirt with Tank
One of my favorites
Really great top. I have it in four colors. I have never worn anything that has given me more compliments. Washes fine. Fit is on the money. I guess we all different, but I love this top.
I've noticed in the past couple of years that D & C garments in bright or dark colors fade quickly even though I wash in cold water. The tank seemed so much larger than the shirt, glad it was covered up by the shirt.
LOVE THIS SET!!!
I have four of these sets and receive many compliments when I wear them. I wear them as a set and also mix them up. I gave it 4 stars because I only have one complaint, and that is I wish the shirt was just about an inch longer. I don't iron mine, as I take them out of the dryer when they are still a little damp pull the sleeves and body down to straighten and hang to finish drying. I have my eye on a couple other colors and may order those before too long! This is a simple go to set with capris or jeans, and makes getting ready to go out a cinch!.
Perfect for Texas
This eyelet blouse provides sorely needed air circulation when standing in line at the Dallas Zoo when there is literally no breeze and 95-degree humid heat. This eyelet blouse keeps you cool during business hours without sacrificing coverage when there's a breezy 104-degree day outside. This eyelet blouse is appreciated by me. I have it in yellow and green. It does need ironing. No way around it that I know of. And the iron will catch in all the holes. So you simply take any bandana or chef's cloth that you've got, lay it over the blouse on the ironing board, and the steam iron will flow right across. There is some shrinkage when washed according to the instructions (that's the only reason for 4 stars), so when I bought the second blouse, I sized up one size, and after washing, it ended up being the one size down that I originally intended. The tank is true to size and does not change with wash.
I loved the pattern of this eyelet. And the colors offered. (I ordered the black) But the weight of the fabric is heavy enough to eliminate the drape this so desperately needs to look good on a curvy girl. And after washing, it would only be thicker and stiffer. So, I had to return it.
If this had been made in the lightweight cotton so often used in eyelet, it would have been amazing. Instead it came off too boxy, and the effect was aging and unflattering.
Blouse / Jacket
Purchased this in white and wore it as a shirt jacket with another colored tank under it with a gauze skirt , it made a very cute outfit. This blouse will go the distance in making many types of outfits for Spring/Summer time. Good investment set for my way of dressing.
Great design concept but EEK - Itchy!
I purchased green and pink sets. The colors were great, as was the design concept. However, the shirt material was stiff as cardboard and very itchy. I could imagine how awful it would have felt in the sweltering humidity. I wish the shirt material had been softer and perhaps not so boxy on the bottom. Perhaps a more tailored shirt hem.
LOVE IT BUT SIZE UP !!!!!!!!
I read the other reviews and returned my regular size and reordered a size up. After washing the larger top, it did shrink and fits the way my regular top would fit. I do love this top and ordered it in 6 colors. Why doesn't the manufacturer wash the material before making the tops so its already preshrunk and people wouldn't have to go thru the hassle of sending the shirts back to size up.
Nice combination with some reservations
I got this in aqua. Color is beautiful. The eyelet shirt is a heavier fabric and looks very nice but I definitely know I am wearing something more substantial. The tank feels very soft. I have a lot of D and Co and this set seems to run smaller. I ordered my usual small and the tank fits more snugly than the usual small in D and C. This is ok for me as I am a 34 B but someone with a larger bust may find the tank to be too tight. The shirt is cut smaller too. Fits me fine but definitely not the usual D and C fit which is usually looser.
Love the design idea, but
I love the design, but not the fabric. I got this in more than one color. Wish I had not. The material is too heavy for summer and needs ironing. I do not have time to iron. The material in the collar looks and feels cheap. I would buy again if it was made in a lighter, higher quality fabric.
I ordered this item in the orange, which is a great color. I read review that indicated the shirt ran large - Wrong! The tank fits great, the shirt is very pretty and fit well until I tried to bend my arms. Both sleeves are very tight at the elbow area and wrinkle up and pull even tighter when the arm is bent. It looks like the sleeves must be cut incorrectly or weren't sewn correctly. All I know is I can't wear it as is and it will be going back. My problem is - do I exchange it and hope I get one of the "good" ones that a lot of folks are saying they got, or will I get a second one exactly like the first??? I don't want to keep paying shipping charges. QVC may need to take a look at their quality control, I've had this happen with a few other items purchased in the past. There was a day when EVERY item I ordered was perfect.
Love this set!
It's perfect to wear together or to wear with other pieces. I plan on ordering other colors!
