Rated 3 out of 5 by Mustard beautiful blouse..if you don't require the use of your arms
I ordered the blouse in ivory and like the other reviewer thought it would make a great staple. It is a beautiful blouse. I'd say the overall effect is "piratey". It's very sheer. I could see every detail of my tank underneath it. It does have bat sleeves, somewhat, but that doesn't really bother me, especially considering I can't really raise my arms above my head. The cuffs are too tight to pull over my elbow, so I couldn't raise my arms or bend over significantly. I'm a small person, so this problem has nothing to do with the girth of my arms. Unbuttoning the cuff looks weird and rolling up silk sleeves does not work. The fit is loose and boxy, but if you tuck the shirt in I think it's easy to achieve a similar look to the model. The length is perfect on the verge of too short, so I would be afraid to size down for a more fitted look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sgarden Bat sleeve
From the picture it looks like a staple piece without being too boring or too formal, but when it arrived, I was very disappointed at the look: the cut is much boxer than the online photo, and worst of all, the underarm area is huge, especially when I raise my arms, I look like a bat with huge wings. It does not show on the model at all. The ivory is a nice color but definitely need something underneath, which I found to be the case for all light colored silk blouse.
