Bob Mackie's Bamboo Trellis Printed Button Down Shirt
classy looking and crisp (except the buttons fell
i would give this 5 stars except the first day i wore it 2 of the buttons fell off. there was only 2 left holding this shirt together before my bra would be showing. I loved the crisp white sleeves and collar and the bright yellow is charming. got lots of complements wearing this blouse and now i have to resew all the buttons so it does not happen again. anyone else have this problem?? so lucky i did not lose them as they are special buttons.
Not a keeper for me. The Kiwi color was very sickly looking. The detailed cuffs, collar, inside seams and skimpy hem were poorly pressed and stitched. The trellis design was not flattering for 1x size. I have purchased many of Bob Mackie's designs, but this one falls short of feeling attractive as a quality fashion by a fabulous designer.
pretty but not practical, not durable
Pretty design but ...with the first wash on delicate followed by hanging to hang to dry, 3 buttons came off which couldn't be sewn back on due to the incredibly tiny openings on the back of these fancy buttons. None of my sewing needles would go through these bulky buttons with their micro openings. Had to find different buttons and replace them all to save this shirt, not worth the headaches on this one Mr. Mackie...product fail.
Check the buttons
Love the blouse but several buttons were loose. Fixed two of them but forgot about the ones on the sleeves and lost one. There is a spare with the blouse. I would think there should be better quality control.
NOT SURE WHAT TO MAKE OF IT
I was really looking forward to this top .. BUT didn't realize how BIG the collar is. It looks very ODD to leave it closed as the collar is OVERSIZED. I can ONLY see someone wearing this with something under it and having it OPEN ALL the time. That is not what I expected and thought of wearing it. Its a very nice print and material. I want to keep it but really feel I will NEVER wear it the way I intended and will probably send it back.
I just received my Bob Mackie's Trellis Printed Button Down Shirt, I generally wear a 1X in Bob's clothing, I ordered the 1X in this shirt, it does not fit the way I like my shirt to fit, I do not plan on returning it, I will layer over a tank. This one may run a little small. I gave 5 star because although a little snug, it is a beautiful piece of art, I can image my self layering over an all black or all white out fit.
