Bob Mackie's Embroidered Dragon Motif Zip Front Shirt
Everywhere I go when I wear the red I have strangers ask me where did I get that jacket. I'm proud to say its a Bob Mackie from QVC. The fit is perfect and looks like a million bucks. I'm waiting for the silver to come back in stock. Thanks Bob Mackie
I purchased this in purple. It is beautiful! The dragon in the back is very eye catching. The jacket does run a little small but still fits. I hope it doesn't shrink when cleaned up. Love Bob Mackie's designs. He is so creative and has lots of imagination in his designs. Can't wait for his fall/winter collection.
Thanks Mr. Mackie.
This shirt is gorgeous. It fits great and I am a plus size. I will definitely buy Bob Mackie again. Just love it!!!
embroidery color could be better
I received the royal purple and felt the embroidery was beautiful but only in technique. The color would have been better with an orange and would have popped against the royal purple because there is so much blue in it. I did like the green sequins. Next time, please add more colors in the embroidery. I love the dragon design! Perhaps the dragon's head in the front would be nice for another jacket. this jacket is boxey and not for a figure with a waist. I plan to add colorful beading and will singe in the waist..
I have ordered a few Bob Mackie Embroidered suits and all were simply beautiful.
I was extremely disappointed in this one, I ordered the red in a medium, I received
a large - the material was cheap, I could fit three people besides myself in the large I received.
I will not order any of Bob Mackie's designs unless there is a vast improvement in the product.
Show stopper in Red!
The photos do not do this justice! The red is gorgeous, with the embroidered dragon that sweeps the front and back. The fabric looks like silk dupioni and the embroidery gold silk thread and gold matte sequins. Zip front, so it can become a blouse or a jacket. Wonderful styling and totally elegant. Amazing quality for this price. Looks like $$.
I bought this in the purple, even though there wasn't an example of the color on the website. It is a deep, rich true purple, and the embroidery is gold and turquoise threads with turquoise sequins! The fabric is polyester, though it looks exactly like a nubby silk with a slight sheen. I know from experience that Bob Mackie's clothes generally run large, so I downsized to a small, so the fit is closer to the body. Looks great. I know he calls it a shirt, but I'm using it as a jacket over a chic short black dress on a cruise. It's one of those "POW!" Jackets that gets you admiration both coming AND going. I'll say it again: it's Spectacular!
Year of the dragon!
I purchased the shirt(more like a jacket) in a size large; I usually buy a 1x, or xl at the smallest, but I know that Bob Mackie is very generous with his cut. The jacket is made beautifully, and the dragon is perfect. The only two negatives that someone would have are 1. I bought the smaller size because red was not available in my size. Saying that, the jacket fits perfectly, so if you really needed a large, it would be very very big. 2. The jacket has little shape in the midsection, so if you need something fitted, don't get this one. I find the shape is perfect for someone with short arms and a larger waist. If you want a beautiful jacket for over a sleevless shift dress, this is the one!
I got TONS of compliments on this(in the red)-people thought it was "elegant" and "chic". You will, too!
I ordered this jacket for my neighbor's birthday. She was excited to wear it for an upcoming cruise. Today she stopped by to show me that the side seams were not completely sewn. I offered to return it but she wouldn't hear of it. She is taking the jacket to her seamstress to have the seams closed. Needless to say I was mortified. I will never order another Bob Mackie item!
Pretty, but not good fit and something off
Very pretty jacket in the slate color, and I tried 2 times to wear it to a "fancy" dinner party, but each time I put it on, something just wasn't right. I ordered my normal XS size and I think it was just too big, and also the silver tone zipper pull with the gold trim on the jacket just did not look right to me. I had gold and pearl jewelry on to go with the gold and ivory embroidery design, then looked in the mirror, and thought---that zipper is silver and the pull is so large, that silver just jumped out at me. It looked nice with the ivory silk slim fit pants I had on and the ivory tank/shell, but the fit and that silver pull just made me take it off and not wear it, so it is gong back. So sorry, as it is a pretty jacket and I was so excited to receive it ater it being on waitlist, but guess it just wasn't meant to be. I"ll still order from Mr Mackie, but this one was not a hit for me.
The embroidery work on the jacket was well done however, I was disappointed with the overall appearance especially the "hit you in the face" zipper pull. It really cheapened the look of the jacket and fabric. Sorry, I just wasn't satisfied with this product.
