Rated 3 out of 5 by NYCarch Beautiful but fragile
Beautiful shirt, but unfortunately very fragile. The silk is so thin and sheer that it shatters extremely easily. After just two wears and one dry cleaning, the seams are already opening up and there is shattering all over the shirt. It's really sad, because this is such cool top (I have the plaid one) and is both interesting and a little flirty. Wish I could wear it all the time, but I'm afraid that the next time I wear it might be the last, because it just will not last that long no matter how gentle I am. In the future, I hope Madewell uses a higher quality silk for their shirts, one that's just a tad thicker so that they don't just fall apart after a few wears.

I purchased this plaid shirt without seeing it in person. I had tried on the black one in stores and loved it so I thought i'd give the plaid one a try. I was pleasently surprised! It is so classy and pretty. It is sheer, but looks great with a cami underneath. The plaid is not as bright as the picture shows, but you can still tell that it is patterned. The silk is beautiful and the shirt is clearly a quality item. Love it so much! I am normally a large in most shirts due to my large bust, and the large worked great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by coconicole79 My favorite shirt
I saw this shirt when it came out in December and wanted it back then. I love the colors, the sheerness, the silk, everything. I didn't get it initially due to the price but it FINALLY went on sale and I LOVE IT!!! I wore it last night with Madewell black coated jeans and stacked heel boots. The shirt is light and feels so good against your skin; I can't wait to wear it more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmeliaJo237 Gorgeous take on plaid!
Being a plaid afficionado, I absolutely had to have this. It is perfect to dress up or dress down. Looks great layered under a chambray or a bulky sweater. Overall a beautiful well made shirt! Even better I got it on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SophieChen Fun way to dress up plaid
I love tartan patterns, so this top caught my eye. I love the fact that it's silk and sheer, so it can dress up an otherwise casual blouse. My husband was really impressed with this top - he thought it was really nice. I paired it with a black pair of jeans, a blank cami and a pair of blue pumps. It's a simple outfit, but the fact the shirt is silk and sheer added an extra layer of style. I think some people might experience some static cling during the winter, but I swiped the shirt with a dryer sheet before wearing it and I didn't have a problem, even with taking off and putting on my coat. I really like it and love the fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lshitch beautiful silk blouse
This blouse is just the right amount of sexy and proper. The fit at the neck is perfect and the weight of the silk is dreamy. I layer it under a sweater for work and feel really stylish, and am waiting for the perfect night to wear it out all by itself. I'm happy that I bought this blouse and wish it came in more colors!

super thin so it's easy to layer. true to size, would definitely recommend this. Completely see-through though, which isn't obvious in the picture. Just needs something under or a sweater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by theskirt Too big
Trusting the "true to size" description, I bought a large as the online size chart recommended. I am average height, but the shirttail is too long and the sleeves reach all the way down to my thumbs. It is also very baggy when tucked. Wish I'd ordered a size down.
With that said, it is otherwise a beautiful blouse! I love the way the sheer silk plays against my skin tone. Also the floaty and oversized qualities actually work together to create a sexy silhouette.
