Embroidered Alma Peasant Top

Embroidered Alma Peasant Top is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful top I really like wearing this peasant top. The fabric is airy, but still feels high quality. The embroidery is lovely. I also like the neckline and the length of the sleeves. This top is different from most things I own, which I appreciate. I would say it runs true to size when considering most brands' sizing, but smaller than how I'm used to a Madewell size small fitting. I typically find that Madewell runs a bit bigger than the other brands I buy. I am a size 34C and I can see how this top may feel too tight in the chest for someone with a chest and broader shoulders. Maybe it's because I'm petite, but this top doesn't feel tight to me. I really like the fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful peasant top Pretty peasant top with lovely embroidery. I got the deep plum and it's a beautiful color. It is a bit fitted across the chest but not a deal breaker. I'm 5'2", 130 lbs, 34B and bought a size S. I think the sleeves would have been too poufy in the M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastical! This shirt is sure to be a go to this spring and summer. It is light weight, but not sheer (mine is the Dark Plum). I bought a size up for extra length and because I thought the embroidery would make it tight across the chest, and it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful top! I purchased this top in the dark plum color and it is absolutely beautiful! I was a little worried from the other reviews, but still ordered my normal size in tops (xxs) and it fit. It is thicker material, so does not require anything underneath. Super cute top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect peasant top! First off, I've tried on spring/summer peasant tops from Madewell for the past two years, hoping that I would love them but that hasn't happened. This top, however, sold me. It's not too boxy or flowy. Runs TTS. I'm 5'8", and I find the length works best with shorts. But it can also be worn with jeans or a skirt. And that being said, it's pretty disappointing when peasant tops are too long to wear with shorts! The sleeves are a little puffier than I would like, but I'm looking past it. It's lightweight, but not too sheer. The embroidery is beautiful. And I love the fact that it's inspired by a vintage top found in Paris! Overall, it's a great piece, and I'm glad to finally find a go-to peasant top for the spring/summer seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer top I love this blouse. It is a classic cotton peasant top but the details make it elegant. Lovely pintucks; beautiful embroidery. I just wish it came in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love this shirt. I get so many compliments when I wear it and it is super flattering and slimming. It's structured on top and flares out slightly. The only suggestion I have is to be very careful while drying the shirt - I accidentally stuck mine in the dryer and the shirt faded a lot... make sure you follow the washer/drying instructions! I'm 5'2" 125 lb and got a small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy top with beautiful embroidery I tried this top on at least 6 times in store before I finally bought it. I have such a weak spot for this style top and anything with embroidery. As usual, MW created a funky/fun top that seemed to shout "WEEKENDS!" For me, the top fit overall comfortably loose except across the bust (I'm a 34A) where it was snug enough that I sized up which might be what caused the sleeves to look exactly like bells on my arms. I knew that I WANTED it but had to wrestle with knowing it didn't look great on me. Then one day, someone returned the burgundy color to the store and I was sold. The burgundy top somehow seemed to be less bell-like in the sleeves - maybe it was just the dark color. I ordered one immediately and have been happy to have this relaxed, fun top as an easy top to pop on with just about anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute shirt, incredibly tight above bust Nice quality, cute peasant top. However, the fit above the bust (under armpits) is incredibly tight. Not sure sizing up will work because it seems to be a design flaw. For reference, I have a size 32 bust and bought the XS, and it needs to be at least 2" bigger in that area. I bought another XS Madewell shirt at the same time, and it fits perfectly. Sizing so inconsistent that it's really hard to order your clothes online, Madewell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute shirt but surprisingly tight in the bust I ordered this right away when I saw it go up online. I'm newly pregnant and thought it would make make a good transition item between regular and maternity clothes. However, I was surprised by how snug this shirt is in the bust. I'm normally an A cup, and I'm probably a B right now, and it felt uncomfortably snug to me -- especially given that the shirt is a relatively loose, flowing style. If I'd ordered a size up, it would've been too big everywhere else. Everything else about it was great.
