Rated 5 out of 5 by CarmenSandiego trendy, comfortable work top
It's hard for me to find tops because I'm petite with narrow shoulders and hips but a 32F chest. Let's call it nearly impossible :)
I ordered a black, petite 8 top and it was perfect. The sleeves were not too long, but the fitted cuffs allows you to adjusts the length anyway. The fit around my chest was just right and the rest was relaxed but not baggy.
I usually wear suits to work, so this is my "casual Friday" top. Love it.
Sale price is excellent for a 100% silk top. But it's Made in China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ruralLA great shirt, esp on sale
Cut is more modern and hip than the usual fusty LLBean tops. It is boxy, but not too long, so it is easily worn tucked in or left out. Very nice, lightweight silk fabric, with good sheen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CyclinMama Really chic vintage style
I bought this shirt on a whim and I'm so glad I did! The silk is perfect for work - dressy but not stuffy. The style is comfortable, the pattern is chic and vintage and looks great with a strand of pearls to dress it up a little.
Well done, Bean, this is a great shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by virgquest Beautiful and dressy
Got this shirt for work and it is just as classy as I'd hoped it would be, with lovely long sleeves and a slightly billowy cut. The fabric is slightly sheer, even in the black, but I just wear it over a dark cami and all is well. Got it on sale and found it an excellent value at that price. I really like Bean's half-pullover / half-button style dress shirts (which I have in at least four different fabrics and cuts) and hope they offer the parc silk blouse in more colors next season.

Great blouse, fit exactly to the size chart. So comfortable and stylish. Easy maintenance: I washed it inside out, cold water on delicate cycle, 2 minutes in dryer and then hang - in 2 hours its ready to go! Love Signature line, wish it be more affordable :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pokeyclown Dreams of Ancient Kingdoms: Tiles Without Borders
This shirt, in Field Rose Foulard, is quietly stunning. The pattern reminds me of the most beautiful, decorative, antique tiles, unearthed from an ancient archaeological site. There are tiny pink flowers bordered in a deeper pink, even tinier, rosier flowers in a "Snapdragon Red" color, vines and leaves of the palest olive color which are edged in brown, and creamy blossoms centered on small steel-grey octagons. The many colors are rendered in a subdued manner.
The fabric is of the finest, most delicate "grain", resulting in a texture of tactile silkiness. And it is indeed real silk, 100%.
I'll take care to "dry clean only", because I love this shirt so much if it shrank I think I would cry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ilovebooks Beautiful but Billowy
I ordered this shirt in the rose color and loved everything about it - except the fit. I'm very slender and this shirt was just too billowy for me. The sleeves, in particular, are very wide and the overall look was ill-fitting and sack-like. The foulard print, however, is gorgeous and the shirt is very well made. For reference, I'm 5'5"/105# and ordered the 0 regular. This Signature size usually works for me so I'd say that this shirt - or rather the style - runs large. So disappointed that it didn't work out. Hope you have better luck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chicstyleplus "A Beauty Of A Blouse"
I purchased two of these blouses on sale...in spite of duty and taxes...I chose a size 6 but I might have been better with a size 8 as I do have a bustline and these blouses are close fitting... I shall keep them as I did not wish a blousy look........Lovely fabric,very smart buttons,very nicely made and just a beautiful blouse... also very nice prints in the rose and black pattern...these blouses are different and L.L.Bean proves they are once again superior in taste and clothing..By the way wear this blouse tucked in or loose over your beltline..

Rated 4 out of 5 by SmallFeetGrownup Nice silk shirt
It is well made shirt with quality silk, very airy and comfortable. Unfortunately neither the style nor the color fits me. It is best suited for tall and slim person with wide shoulders and full breast. I will have to send it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeangiftgiver2 easy pattern matching
Silk shirt that catches the eye with tiny black mallards and out of the ordinary styling. True to size -sm fits with appropriate drape; I'm usually a size 4 top. Black mallards can come off as navy at times -I think it will make the shirt even more wearable.
