JM Drygoods™ Embroidered San Vicente Top

JM Drygoods™ Embroidered San Vicente Top is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from JM Drygoods great embroidered top. This top was on my wish list for a long time, and I'm so glad I finally purchased it. It's beautiful and I have received a lot of compliments. It runs really straight, which suits my figure, but might be a problem for someone curvy. Totally worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really beautiful but awkward fit Absolutely loved this shirt online and was so excited to get it in the mail. The stitching is gorgeous, and the fabric is light weight and perfect for summer. The split in the front was a lot deeper in person than on the model and the fit was a bit awkward and tight in the hips. Thought about keeping it, but didn't fit well enough for how much it cost to keep it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Small in Hips If you want this top to fit like the model then don't order your true size, order one size up. It's a really pretty top but for some reason they made it extremely fitted around the hips so it doesn't lay like shown on the model. I purchased an XS, which I am normally an XS/0 in most clothing brands. It fit everywhere but the hips were snug, which is odd for this top of top. I'm debating whether to exchange for a different size or just return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why is this top so long? This top is quite lovely. Actually I was in Austin and went to the JM Drygoods store, which was loaded with goodies, but oddly, NOT THEIR TOPS. The fabric is a heavy guaze, not quite as heavy as the manta fabric you see in Mexico. The embroidery is perfect. The body of top is quite long, and has no flare, unlike my bust to hips ratio. The resulting snugness around the hips can easily be fixed with about 4 to 5 inches of hemming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful embroidery like you'd travel to mexico for i love this top, it's shape is a little unusual, the sleeves puff and i actually took mine up so it is a top not a tunic but that was easy to do and it's so beautiful and very special.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great colors, much longer than pictured I bought the black and cream shirt last year that was One Size Fits All, I wish this year's was as well. The length is much longer that shown on-line. Last year's style was a true tunic, this year's style hits just above my knee, so will be wearing as a cover-up vs. a shirt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice...could be nicer perhaps The embroidery, colors and style are attractive. The stitching is cheap and the seams are not interlocked. I would expect better product quality for the price. I had the length shortened for my height as the original tunic length looked frumpy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from love colors and pattern Fit is not consistent with other Madewell tops--armholes too small. Fabric quality not as nice as it looked in photo. Despite all of the handwork, I could get a totally handmade embroidered top more beautiful than this for less money from Mexico.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Snug fit, not breezy and floaty at all Shelled out all the dollars for this beautiful top and stood by the door waiting for UPS to deliver. I was ready in my boyfriend jeans and Birks as I ripped open the bag, fully expecting to wear the top out that night. Nope. In the same size as previous jm dry goods tops from previous season, this year's top (with it's truly beautiful colors) was waaaaay too snug. The arms were snug and the chest measurement was off. Returned it the next day. So sad. Hey, Madewell, you know what might be a great help? Adding the size the model in the photo is wearing so we have some idea of fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shirt--Before You Try it on Was anxiously awaiting this top. It is really beautiful, but the fit is so odd. The center opening is much deeper than the picture and the sleeves are much puffier. Some people said it was tight in the hips, I didn't find that. Also the top smelled of incense, so I wasn't sure if it was worn and returned. Sad but need to return. Certainly not worth the price either..
