I was more than happy when this blouse arrived at my home. Although it was more sheer than I expected, the boxy cut, the delicate sleeves, and the thick collar look great with a simple pair of jeans and oxfords. My only complaint/suggestion would be that it needs to be ironed regularly to keep it crisp and "boxey" instead of sloppy.
Overall: I love this shirt!

I was lucky enough to snag this beautiful top on sale after Christmas. The bodice is a sturdy cotton material that upholds the "boxy" shape, yet it is slimming enough to keep a feminine form. The organza striped sleeves and the buttons down the back add a creative edge to this blouse that sets it apart from simply wearing a white collared shirt. I am petite, just over 5' and about 105 lbs - the xs fit perfectly. The look is a retro, classic cool - I am excited to wear this top out and about as soon as the snow melts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by namejin1349 Good quality nice design
the shirt is suitable for summer but better wear a tank in... also, I don't think the shirt looks good with long jeans...

Rated 4 out of 5 in one word: darling
I tried this on in the Madewell store, thinking that putting it on will take away its appeal; that is NOT what happened.
This top is rather sweet, and I like it even though my style is more mature. I think the cut and structure of the blouse balance out its overly girly features like the organza sleeves, the collar, and the back-buttons. The boxy fit is just boxy enough to downplay the femininity without suffocating the female form. It really was quite cute.
Fabric-wise, I wasn't floored because the body of the blouse is pretty raw cotton. It is not in the least bit see through, but the thinness of the cotton means a nude bra would be necessary.
All said and done, this top is a beautiful piece that is difficult to ignore without demanding the attention. I can see it as a versatile part of my wardrobe for years to come.

I checked sizes before ordering. Ordered size medium but wish I had ordered size large instead. This shirt is tight between shoulder blades. Unfortunate I can't rerun the sale price shirt. Wasted my $.

Rated 2 out of 5 by iwearstuff Not great quality
Love madewell, but this specific top was very disappointing. The quality was lacking— immediately upon wearing the shirt, the fabric (not at a seam, the actual fabric) tore apart. The fit was fine, I didn't 'hulk' the shirt off, it is just made of really flimsy and weak cotton. I don't recommend getting this top.
