Denim & Co. 3/4 Sleeve Button Down Eyelet Shirt with Tank
Both pieces are great!
I got orange & green last year, have worn plenty & washed/dried enough to say that I think these are excellent quality, look very nice, don't need ironing.....unless you're from my mother's generation & I'm 62. If you like this set try "as is" to get a deal on returns from the complainers. I usually leave the shirt open over the tank, but when I do button a couple I haven't noticed any problems.
Blue Iris is PURPLE!
For you purple lovers, order the Blue Iris... The color on my computer monitor is a royal blue,but when it arrived it is clearly purple. This is my 3rd set this spring, and I love them. Royal blue is my favorite color, for it brings out the blue in my eyes, so I was disappointed the color was purple. But I'll keep it, I'm just not excited about it. You purple lovers will LOVE it!
I ordered the white and blue iris. Now ... despite the fact that I love BOTH and have received many compliments, I have NOT yet washed the eyelet shirt on either. I tend to wear these sets to church and when I want to sort of "dress up" casually. I've worn both about 3 times for short periods of time and have been very careful with them so they haven't required laundering yet. So I can't speak to how they do when washed. Someone said they were "stiff." Well, the eyelet shirt DOES have structure to it. In my opinion, it wouldn't look right if it were flimsy. Love the 3/4 sleeves. It's very cool in the summer. Having read the reviews ... I'll be very careful with washing it. But it should be ok.
Choose your color carefully!
The colors for this vary greatly in their saturation. I ordered the bluish purple ( the way QVC names colors is problematic and I don't' remember exactly how this was named). When it arrived, it was far less bright than it seemed either on tv or website and it made me look ill. In the meantime I ordered the azalea pink, which turned out not to be bright enough for me either. I returned both colors. However, 2 years ago I purchased the turquoise, which is very saturated and bright, and I have had many compliments on it. And when I saw that this was again available in black, which I had been trying to get for a long time, I ordered it immediately. Many years ago I was told that I was a "winter" and should wear bright, primary colors or icy shades, plus black. I have tried to follow that as much as I could and it has paid off. This color classification scheme of winter, spring, summer, and fall seems to have gone out of common usage but the basic ideas are still very valid in helping to choose fashion colors according to one's basic complexion type, I wish QVC would bring it back! As for the eyelet material in this, it is stiff and the button holes are difficult and very tight to use. I have only washed this by hand (living in a small apartment without my own washing machine) but noted that one review said that this garment shrank when washed as directed. So, in sum, if you get this in a color right for your complexion, you should be happy with it. But I would like to see a shrink proof and colorfast fabric used in the future.
Beware - This top shrinks!
I ordered this set in several colors - loved it until I washed it, as directed, and the cardigan shrunk so much that I cannot wear it at all. The upper arm of the sleeve was pretty tight anyway. I spent way too much on these for them to shrink after washing. Boo!
Just got this in white and am very pleased with the fit and weight of the fabric
Not scratchy, not boxy. Ordered two more, one in turquoise and one in
black. Great little summer jacket or blouse.
I'm only giving it one star because it's a "required" field. I don't think it deserves any stars. The fabric is awful. It's so stiff it was very difficult to open the buttons and once on it was actually uncomfortable. I'm sending both sets back for a refund.
Love this set
I bought this in the blue...beautiful color and fit!! Went back for the black and just made it before it sold out..Great quality for the price...Can't go wrong with Denim & Co.
I love the colors--I have now the green, white and the blue. I like to wear my Joan River's sequin tanks under them for a sparkly look!
I have not worn this top and tank yet. It appears to be ok
I received this set in white almost two weeks ago. Tank and shirt fit perfectly...no problems with size (L). Have worn both, also wore shirt with a different color tank. Have received many compliments. Thanks!!!
Can't be happier with this set. Great design and value. The fabric is just perfect for spring and summer.What can be best for summer that a 100% cotton shirt. I was so happy that I order 2 more. I did not have any problem with the sizing as others seems to have, plus the 2 payments is another incentive to buy it.
I trust others be as happy as I am with this purchase.
