Rated 1 out of 5 by raspberry not so great
When the shirts came I thought they would be great but after just one wearing I became very disappointed. The shirring in the front is disappearing causing weird looking puckers. Thought it might go back to normal after washing but I was wrong. Not what I was hoping for so even though I got them on sale I don't think they are worth what I paid for them. They're going back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yespat Nice style, but.....
Finally an llbean top in petite! Cute styling too. The main problem is with the fabric. The linen in the knit makes it feel itchy. Too bad. I really wanted to keep it.
I'm hoping llbean will make an identical top in cotton spandex or nylon/polyester/spandex in some nice solid colors, something that won't shrink.
The washing instructions on the tag say to wash in cold and tumble dry low. I would prefer a fabric that did not require such careful attention.
And to make it perfect, a little higher neck would be nice too, crew neck or even a mock neck.
Too bad, I liked the top but it just itched as soon as I put it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wine cotton linen tee, three quarter sleeve
I love this tee. I wear it often and ordered another similar to this one.

I was given this tee as a present so I can't complain to the giver. The colour looks like the black dye vat wasn't cleaned out. The Rose MIst colour is dirty looking. The material is very sub-standard and cut at an awkard angle.
The hem and cuffs are poorly finished.
I had asked for TA269954 so don't know if this was a substitute or my error. Very, very poorly made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Holacat Nice but too long
I bought this in "Raw Indigo" in my usual size. I like the fabric and the colour is a nice chalky blue. The neck is not too scooped and the 3/4 sleeve is great for all seasons. I would have given it 5 stars but it is way too long and needs to be shortened. I haven't washed it yet but I will be careful to hang it to dry based on other reviews.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Elizabeth13215 Shrank in length in the dryer
I've had this shirt (in light blue# for a couple of months and liked it a lot, and I've always hung it up to dry. Today I put it in the dryer on low #as recommended on the label), and it shrank 2" in length in the body and almost as much in the sleeves. I don't really care about the sleeve length, but I'm 5'10", and now the shirt is too short to wear without my tummy showing, which is not a good look at my age. So--if you buy this shirt, don't put it in the dryer, regardless of what the label says!

Rated 5 out of 5 by urbangrounded Very nice shirt!
I love this t-shirt. It fits perfectly, flatters the middle-aged, plump figure, and is extremely comfortable. The cotton-linen fabric is lovely. I bought one and then immediately ordered another in a different color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Daisy022 Disappointed
I am usually very impressed with the quality of the items I order from L.L .Bean. I can't say that for this item. The fabric does not live up to the description. the detailing on the front of the shirt is very skimpy. The top just looks cheap. I washed it thinking it might look better. It doesn't. Sorry I bought it.

Bought the coral--love it. It's soft and hangs nicely, and the cut is flattering--scoop neck and shirring take attention away from midriff and tummy, and length and loose casual fit mean I can move around freely without constantly wondering if I need to tug my top down over my tummy bulge. I can just put it on, smile into the mirror and forget about it. Yay!

Rated 2 out of 5 by closetothecoast doesn't work for me
I thought I would like this shirt, but it doesn't look good on me at all. The neck is too scooped and the fit is unflattering, but the color ( light blue) is nice. I will be returning it.
