Rated 5 out of 5 by grandmaofAanl Good shirt for spring, summer, fall
I read the other reviews about this shirt and I had to write. I found this shirt to be very satisfactory. The fabric is nice, not too thin, there is no issue with the cut or how it washed. I have had it for several months and it continues to be a great shirt. I would like to see the stripe in more colors and I would probably purchase another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jmay Post washing review
This is an added review...this shirt is not cut on 'the straight of the goods' (a sewing term) therefore after washing the seams do not lay flat. There is a pattern in the weave and it runs on the diagonal because of the sloppy cutting. The fabric is very thin and out of the washer and line drying this looks like a rag. All of these shirts may not have these same problems but on close inspection of pictures at the LL website it appears that none are cut on the straight. I like the style of this shirt so I will iron it and hope for the best. I am very happy that I only paid the daily markdown price! I am getting more and more disappointed with LL quality....darn!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by OldMaid Tag and sleeve tab problems with thin white fabric
It seems women like this shirt and hope there are improvements to solve some of its issues. I like this shirt and ordered a second white one but then I realized that the printed tag information with brand and size shows through so anyone behind me can see what size I wear. I sent the second one back. It seems silly to have the print show through. Also, I don't see the reason for rollup tabs on any sleeves so I cut off the tabs and tried to unstitch the button piece but because the fabric is so thin I managed to put a small hole in the sleeve. I did receive compliments on the shirt and find it easy to wear as a long sleeve alternative to crew neck shirts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BorntoTravel2007 Tabs for Roll-up Sleeves an Issue
I was very excited when I first got this shirt in the mail. It has classic lines and has a comfortable, flowing look without being baggy. The tabs that they put in the sleeves to make them be roll-up were an issue. The sleeves themselves are on the tighter fitting side, pushing the tabs against your skin in an uncomfortable way. Personally, the tabs were totally unnecessary to begin with - Given the weight and overall look of the shirt, you probably would not even want to roll them up - and if you did, because the sleeves are so tight, you do not need tabs to hold them up. This should be considered in future designs. Regretfully, I sent it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 7crystals Defective Fabric with Pinholes
I love the style and fit of this tee, so I had ordered almost every color of them. However, after washed them about 5 times, each of the tee have developed pinholes at the lower middle front near my navel area. (each one are at the same area!) As time goes by, the pinholes become bigger and bigger. I am so disappointed, so I just packed them all up and returned to LLBean.
I appreciate that LLBean has great guarantee 100% satisfaction policy.
I hope they will improve the quality of this very popular tee, because I just love the style and comfort of it and could not find anything that can replace it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jmay Narrow sleeves, cute shirt
I do like this shirt -color, fabric, style BUT the sleeves are narrow even for my skinny arms. They can be rolled up and have tabs however they roll to an uncomfortable place at the elbow. I said that I wouldn't recommend to a friend and I would like to qualify that by saying, ' I would only recommend if your arms are not too heavy'. I haven't washed this yet so can't comment on shrinkage but I sure hope that there isn't any!

Rated 4 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic The lace does weave off!
I am size 12, DD chest and ordered a medium. The fit was great, not too tight or loose, just right. However I found the forearm area snug when I buttoned the cuffs up. Also, the lace trim in the front did start to unravel, so I exchanged it. I did not have this problem on all of the shirts (I have three) and the lace unraveled on one. It is a pretty, everyday shirt. Overall, a nice addition to my wardrobe.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jxnshopper giving up on this fabric
I have ordered 3 shirts in previous years made out of this fabric and each one developed pinholes in it. I ordered two of a new style this year and now it has a pinhole after about 2 months. So I'm returning it. I really like the style, fit and comfort of these shirts, but the fabric just doesn't hold up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PetiteCritique Not for me
I wanted a tunic length top that would cover my pear shaped hips so went up to a Reg M (usual size Pet S, or M sometimes). However it was just too snug in the hips, so had to return it. The color, lavender mist, was not good for me either.
