I bought this blouse in both medium and small. I wasn't sure how the stretch insert that runs along the sides of the blouse, from the underarm to the hem, would effect the fit. My size usually falls between the small and the medium offered in this item. I don't like buttoned blouses that "pucker or pull" across the breast, and I found that in this case, the medium was a better fit. The fit feels very tailored and I didn't notice any shrinking after it was washed. I did notice though, that the blouse was quite wrinkly, and probably could use ironing or steaming if you want it to look it's best. The embroidery is very pretty, feminine and detailed, and the fabric is not flimsy. The wrinkles are barely noticeable on the indigo version of this blouse. I guess they are disguised slightly by the color. I really do like this blouse though, despite the wrinkles.

The cut at the hip flares as "wings" and looks very odd. When it is laid flat on a table, it is very obvious that it was cut incorrectly. The trim at the sleeve was not set at the same place as in the photo and the sleeves are too long. I was hoping the blouse would be a couple of inches longer, but is ok. I am going to have to spend extra to have it altered because I misplaced the shipping invoice to return it. I really loved it as it appeared in the catalog. It might have helped if it had actually been shown on a model rather than on a hangar.
I haven't washed it yet, so I have no idea how it will perform on that count.

Comments about Lily of the Incas Button-front Blouse:

I had to return the shirt because of size too small although another shirt I ordered at the same size fit well. Was dismayed to have to pay return postage for an exchange. Will be further dismayed if I have to pay to have the larger size shipped.

    Comments about Lily of the Incas Button-front Blouse:

    This tunic exceeded my expectations. It is highly detailed and could be considered a "classic" due to styling. I was very pleased with the comfort of the garmet and know that it will compliment wear for many occasions. I know I will get much wear out of this garmet for years to come. Overall, it is practical and pretty.

      Comments about Lily of the Incas Button-front Blouse:

      I love this blouse. Based on other reviews that said it's tight through the bustline, I bought it in a larger size - which turned out to be too big, so I had to exchange it for the next size down. Go with your usual blouse/shirt size & you should be fine. It is somewhat fitted but not tight. The embroidery & lace trim are gorgeous. Versatile style - wearable with jeans, dressier slacks or a skirt, perfect for dates, parties or office casual. The 100% cotton is soft but sturdy. Machine washable (NOT in hot water) but you'll probably need to iron out a few wrinkles. My new favorite shirt!

            The South American Alstroemeria is a genus of brightly colored flowers known as the lily of the Incas. Popular in floral arrangements, the 120-some members of the Alstroemeria family have an interesting trait in that their leaves are upside-down—that is, they twist so that what we see as the top of the leaf is actually the leaf’s underside.

            History reports that the mighty Inca were swiftly wiped out by a small band of Conquistadors. But new evidence is being unearthed that may help re-write history. Remains of those who died in battle have been discovered, and for the first time physical evidence is suggesting that Spain's conquest of the Incan Empire may have actually taken twenty years. Brought to life through CGI reconstruction and reenactments, the untold epic saga of decades of guerilla warfare and rebellion are finally revealed as National Geographic uncovers the truth behind the Inca's last stand.

            Chikan is the traditional white-on-white embroidery of Lucknow in northern India. Artists start by block-printing a design onto the fabric, which they trace using a variety of stitches to create a textured, lacy pattern. This semisheer, short-sleeve blouse features chikan work (chikankari, which literally means “embroidery” in the Urdu language) covering the front, along with a squared neckline and side vents.

            Although the Inca had no written language, they did have complex record-keeping systems called quipus, made of knotted, colored ropes. Researchers believe quipus communicated census and tax information, perhaps even poems and histories. Our charcoal gray cardigan features designs inspired by these extraordinary Inca objects, painstakingly hand-embroidered on the front, back, and sleeves for a festive look.

            When Spanish explorers reached the Inca Empire in the 16th century, they thought they had come to the end of the earth. In fact, they had stumbled into a culture much more like their own than they realized. The Inca and the Spanish were both highly developed civilizations that lavished gold on the arts and drew inspiration from the natural world. This beautiful blouse, made from lightweight, breathable organic cotton, draws on the aesthetic traditions of both the Inca and the Spaniards. Its swirling motif is modeled on the elliptical leaves of the flowering petrea, the scientific name for several vines found in South America.

            The asymmetrical collar of this traditional Chinese blouse has been popular since the beginning of the Qing dynasty in 1644. Noblewomen would have worn heavily embroidered jackets and vests with frog-button collars like this. Rural Chinese still wear a less ornate version as a work jacket. This red cotton blouse combines the open neck and easy-care fabric of the rural style with an embroidered hem that hints at the splendor of the Qing court. Red is the most auspicious color in Chinese culture, and the peony is called the flower of riches and honor.

            During the Inca Empire, weavers made fine alpaca cloth for trade and for the clothing of the elites. Our soft cardigan is knit with Spanish colonial floral designs and a border adapted from ancient Inca fish and river motifs. The colors are inspired by the Urubamba River that winds around the site of Machu Picchu.
