Bob Mackie's Embroidered Floral 3/4 Sleeve T-shirt Series
Talk About Soft
This is such a soft and beautiful T-Shirt. Everyone should use this fabric for their tops. Thanks Bob for making this one so luxurious.
YES AND NO
LAST YEAR I BOUGHT THE CORAL FIRST. THE DAISY BOUQUET AND THE PRETTY ORANGE-CORAL SHIRT COLOR WAS REALLY A BREATH OF SPRING. IT MADE ME HAPPY JUST WEARING IT AND STRANGERS ACTUALLY COMMENTED ABOUT IT WITH A SMILE. IT WAS SIZE XL AND RAN A TAD LARGE. WASHING IT MADE IT SHRINK SLIGHTLY AND NOW IT FITS PERFECTLY. THE MATERIAL HAS A SOFT FEEL AND IS LIGHT-WEIGHT BUT NOT SEE-THROUGH. IT DOES NEED TO BE IRONED, ESPECIALLY ON THE EMBROIDERY. THE EMBROIDERY IS INTRICATE AND BEAUTIFULLY DONE.
IT WAS A RESOUNDING YES!
THEN I SENT FOR THE PURPLE. WHEN IT ARRIVED, IT WAS A VERY DULL, WASHED-OUT COLOR. I CANNOT STAND DRAB PURPLES! THE COLOR ON MY COMPUTER PLAY-BACK AND THE COLOR WHEN I ORIGINALLY SAW IT ON SEVERAL TV PRESENTATIONS WAS VERY VIBRANT. I HAVE LEARNED TO HOLD MY BREATH EVERY TIME I ORDER, WORRYING ABOUT THE ACTUAL COLOR THAT WILL COME IN THE MAIL. GENERALLY, I HAVE FOUND THAT ORANGES, CORALS, AND TURQUOISES COME CLOSE TO THE SCREEN COLOR. OTHER COLORS NOT SO MUCH. BACK TO THE SECOND SHIRT--- EVEN THE COLOR OF THE HIBISCUS FLOWERS WAS DRABBER THAN EXPECTED, ALTHOUGH EXPERTLY EMBROIDERED. SO, I GAVE THE PURPLE A NO (AND SENT IT BACK.)
Beautiful, but Beware......
I have three of these shirts - love the soft fabric and the embroidery is stunning. However, after washing them a few times (on delicate and in cold water), they pill badly and then they are not wearable for anything other than slopping around the house. Also, I have lost some of the "diamonds" on the shirts and it leaves a big black noticeable spot, unless you have some fake crystals from the craft store that you can re-glue onto the top. The first few times you wear these - wonderful. After that - not so great.
Love This Top
I love this top! I bought the blue one and came back for the red and green. It fits true to size (I check the chart for each item before I order) and I get many compliments each time I wear it. It is a perfect fit on a 63 years young petite woman. I am HUGE Bob Mackie fan. Congratulations Bob on another winner!
Love this shirt!
Purchased this shirt in 01/12 and 05/12 and am purchasing my 3rd one now in October, 2013. The fabric is heavier than most T-shirts and I wore it around the house during the Spring, Fall and Winter. I throw it into the washer and dryer and it comes out looking like new.
Pretty in grey
When I got this had to try on and it is so pretty and good material. Have a grey pair of leggings to match as well as capris, its still warn here. I have other jackets by Mr. Mackie and love them all. Yup, I love some of my clothes. I work in a very casual work environment. But I choose to dress up a bit more as it makes me just plain feel good. Nail polish and all. That's just me. That's one reason I like Mr. Mackie's clothes so well, they make you feel good.
I have not washed this yet, but am still giving it a (5) star for the comfort when trying it on, the fit, & the wonderful material - so soft. The front embroidering is beautiful - I got the grey with the grapes on the front. This one is a "winner" Bob Mackie! I have so many of his designs mainly in tops, jackets, & crop pants, & also a pair of petite black jeans, & just love them as I like bright colors & to wear something different than no one else is wearing and to be comfortable. I always get so many compliments especially on my tops..
I love this top. It is super soft and well made. I bought the Charcoal grey. The embroidery is excellent. The length of this top is also great. I bought it just a wee big, so now I can wear it with leggings. I think the grey will be good for Fall.
As always, Bob Mackie's merchandise was wonderful!
Black tee is nice coloring
I'm not crazy about flowers on my clothes, I'll admit it. I did get the black tee option here, since I love gold with black. Very soft and substantial fabric on this, although, as others have said, it runs a little small. I will have to send it back, still deciding whether the next size might be too big for me.
What can I say that I haven't said before? Bob Mackie is without a doubt the best designer. I purchased three of these tops. They are absolutely beautiful and each one is different. The fabric is one Bob is famous for, soft and yummy and the fit is perfect. Bob thank you for designing and making garments that all of us can afford and wear with pride. I love this top. Keep up the good work and know that your pieces do not go unnoticed. Love, love, love! Go for it ladies. You will not be disappointed
I purchased the black t-shirt and it is gorgeous. The embroidery is amazing and the t-shirt is extremely comfortable. I wore it to work on casual Friday and received many compliments. True to size and just a fun way to wear a t-shirt.
