nice fabric
quality very nice, good drape. I am short waisted, and this hit very high waisted! so beware of that. I did not keep it because I just could not do the cape, it was too much. Also a little short for my tastes.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Pretty, not for me
The cape was too much for me, and the dress was surprisingly high waisted. I am short waisted, and so this was unusual for me. The fabric and drape of it was very nice. I ordered a 10 and a 12, just in case since there were few left in stock. But sadly, it was not flattering on me, a bit shorter than I like for me and the shoulders made my rounded shoulders look more so.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute top! good with jeans
This was a nice top, and well made. The beads were not heavy they may have been plastic, and had more of a matte finish than I expected. I returned it because I was looking for something with a little more sparkle. But loved the fabric, and the fit, and the length. It would be great for a date, or a party, night out with girls, pair with jeans and heels. I am between a med and a large, ordered the large, but if I had wanted to keep it, I probably would have exchanged for a medium. I am 5'5", and 147 lbs.

Pretty, not for me
Beautiful fabric, nice drape. rather short waisted! I am quite short waisted, and this felt a bit weird. Perhaps because it is a heritage piece, and the styles then had less drape around the middle than we are used to. It didn't blouse at all, and in fact seemed a bit high waisted. But the real reason I didn't keep it was because the length was too short for me, and I have short of round shoulders, and this was not flattering. I also sort of felt like I was trying to be BAT GIRL. I ordered two sizes (10 and 12) just to see which was better, but just didn't work for me.

Very Cute,But LARGE
love this top, true to the Velvet Brand way of making graceful, comfortable clothing. It runs pretty large, I am between a medium and and large, and this large was REALLY too big. I might have reordered as a med or even small, because it is really cute, back is long enough to cover your bum, but it was just too casual for the event I was shopping for. It would be great for a casual date, dress up with nice necklace, or to hang out with friends.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
