The colorful genus of flowers known as lily of the Incas was the inspiration for the hand-embroidered design of this organic cotton chambray blouse. Peruvian artisans hand-stitch a handful of petite flowers along with a wealth of soutache embroidery and crochet lace details at the bust and cuffs. Button-and-loop closures and a V-neck collar, along with comfortable stretch-knit vertical side panels, make this blouse perfect for work or weekends.
Hand-embroidered in Peru. 100% organic cotton. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).
Comments about Lily of The Incas Button-Front Chambray Blouse:
I ordered three of these blouses, two medium and one small. My normal size falls between medium and small, and I wasn't sure if the blouse would shrink. I also wasn't sure what effect the stretchy insert that runs along the sides of the blouse, from the underarm seam to the hem, would have on the fit. The insert is barely noticeable, and since I don't like buttoned blouses that "pucker" across the breast, I would recommend the medium if you are between sizes. The indigo color is beautiful, it has "depth". The embroidery shows up very nicely on this blouse, and any small wrinkles are disguised by the color. There was one flaw on the size small blouse. The stitching on the cuff of one of the sleeves was off. The lacy cuff was separated completely from the sleeve almost half the way around. I won't be sending it back though. Experience has taught me that it ends up costing you more than the item is worth, in shipping charges, and I can sew, although I shouldn't have to, for a blouse at this price. Over all though, I really like this item. It's feminine and pretty while being comfortable and beautifully designed. Very unique.
