Embroidered Penny Peasant Top

Embroidered Penny Peasant Top is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for small chested ladies... This top is perfect for us small chested ladies. I'm a 32b, and it didn't look too billowy with a regular bra on but flowed perfectly. Once I put on my push up though, I can see how larger chested women would not like the look. Yes, it is short but not too short in my opinion. I tucked a little of the front into a pair of mid rise denim shorts and it look great! Looks great with a pair of high rise jeans too. This top is amazing for summer and will get lots of wear! I'm 5'6" 125lbs and straight figured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Saw this peasant top reminiscent of the 1970's in the store and knew I had to add it to my wardrobe! I can wear a size XS or S in the courier shirts to a Medium for the cropped, fitted tops. I tried on a size S which fit only the Medium was a tad longer so I purchased the Medium. For reference, I'm a size 8, wear a size 34 E bra so Medium is my true size. I love the quality of the fabric, beautiful embroidery as well as the vibrant colors. Looks great with my vintage white jeans as well as Cali Demi boot blue jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great Love this blouse the embroidery work is really nicely done. The blouse fits great and I love the blue strips it makes the blouse stand out from other peasant blouses I have seen around. Everyone always comments on it and asks me where I got it and I do tell them Madewell :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous BUT So beautiful, light weight but it's more cropped than long. Length is pretty much what you see in the photos, waist length. If it were only 2 inches longer....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute top, colors not represented accurately online This is a really great top for summer - it's lightweight and breezy, and the elastic around the sleeves is not tight or uncomfortable (how rare and wonderful!). However, the colors shown online are not the colors of the shirt. It could be my screen settings, but I don't usually experience color discrepancies. What looks to me online as red, coral-y orange, and peach embroidery around the front of the top is actually red, light coral, and bright yellow embroidery. The actual colors make the shirt look cheaper than the colors shown online, which are reminiscent of a sunrise or sunset. For this reason only, I am not entirely certain that I am going to keep it. If you are okay with the very colorful, slightly discordant embroidery, I definitely say go for it - it's a great, comfortable shirt that looks super cute with summer-y cropped jeans and sandals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Top Great details and embroidery. Only issue was depth of v in the front of the blouse- it was a bit low for work. Love this top!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too short I absolutely love this shirt however I am 5"9 and it is too short. I totally agree with another reviewer that stated that it needs to be two or three inches longer. I ordered the large hoping it would be long enough based on reviews. I am going to order the extra large and hope it will be long enough even if it's a little large. Madewell as a tall woman please enough with the cropped shirts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure I wanted to love this top; nice fabric and texture, nice embroidery. I tried the small because it was the smallest size they had at the store but it looked too boxy, so I decided to order the XS because of the reviews about the length (I usually wear XXS), but it hardly looked any different from the S. Then I tried the XXS, that one was a better fit in width, and since I'm 5,2, the length wasn't an issue. However, the slit from the neckline went down to the end of the embroidery that frames it, not half way as shown in the photo, which was too low and showed more cleavage than I'd feel comfortable with (I'm 5,2 and wear a D cup), so I ended up returning it :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oh WHYYYY Couldn't wait to get my hands on this adorable top after seeing it on the models online....I tried it on in my local store the day the received it and almost cried when I realized how insanely short it is!! This is a crop top, but it's a weird an 'accidental' crop if that makes sense. It was unwearable even with high-rise jeans. Please describe these shirts accurately online!!
