Rivet & Thread LA Garment-Dyed Tee

Rivet & Thread LA Garment-Dyed Tee is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft, sexy and summer chic. I have never written a review for anything at madewell (or for that matter, this mysterious Rivet and Thread brand) but the company deserves some kudos here. The top comes in three colors - i got both the soft blush and the dark grey - it fits lean in a good way (i usually wear an XS in made well but took an S for ease) and the effect is softly elegant, with a pretty sunset California vibe draped peplum effect in the back. Don't worry, said 'peblum' won't make you look 'fat' - it's just effortlessly cool. Now that i'm writing this - i may have to get back up to soho tomorrow and buy the white one after all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Cute Lightweight Tee Great lightweight tee that looks pretty basic in the front but has a fabulous peplum detail in the back. The peplum dresses it up just enough that I can wear it to work or throw it on with shorts or a skirt on the weekend. Love the weight, but the white is sheer enough you need to throw on a cami under. This is a shirt I will be able to wear year round!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softest Shirt I Own This shirt is absolutely the softest thing in my closet. Fits like a glove and very flattering for all shapes. I'm petite and curvy and it flatters me well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute top I ordered this on sale with an additional 20% discount. For the price I got it, I think it's a good value, but I'm not sure I would have paid full price for this item. The neck is a nice, high scoop and the cut in the front is a little a-line without being too big or frumpy. The back, of course, is what makes this top completely adorable. The fabric is thin/fine so lighter colors may be more translucent than the dark gray (which is still a little see-through). It's a little short in the front, but it should be easy to (gently) stretch it out a after washing. I ordered a S based on the size chart, but I think a M would have been better (it's final sale, so I'll live with the small). I should have read the reviews more carefully. :) A M would give slightly more length in the arms and everywhere else and perhaps fit a bit looser, like it does on the model. The S isn't bad, but if you're body type is similar to mine (I am almost 5'7", 128 lbs., 32DD with a 26-27 inch waist), go for the M.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute! Good sale price. It does run small...I ordered a M because that's my size and I was surprised to see that it fits more like a SM, other than that, really cute style and comfy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly flattering This shirt drapes beautifully for a flattering fit. I like the sheer look with a camisole. It runs smaller than other Madewell tops. I'm a 34B and typically an XS or S in Madewell; the S was snug on me through the chest. It works, but I would opt for an M if available. If you can find it in your size, I highly recommend in it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Oddball tee So, this one is definitely not in the versatile category. You need to plan your outfit around this tee (that is if you care about it so much that you absolutely have to wear it!). It has a seam and pleats in the back and if you wear it with jeans or airy summer skirts it's gonna look dorky. with shorts (as with the model) yes, maybe. Not sure I know what I'm going to do with it. However, if this is the shape you're looking for, I'd recommend it. It's nice and soft and is cut well. Also: if you are not a skinny petite person, I'd say avoid at all costs!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Resist this one Loved it online and was pumped to get it in the mail, but now I'm wishing I hadn't bought it on final sale. I have a short torso, and this wasn't even cutting it on me! Very cropped and boxy, made me look wide. Cute style, poor execution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Arrived pilled, thin. Not flattering Arrived out of packaging already pilled. Very thin shirt, was thinking it would more of a smooth modal feel but just cotton, I don't find it super soft like the other reviewers said. Disappointed with quality, but having gotten it on clearance sale, can't complain too much. Fit is cute with rouching in back, but with larger bust (30DDD) the shorter, rounded up front makes my (thin) waist appear large. The shirt just hangs in the front with a shortened boxy baggy look. Peplum usually flatters my figure well since it pulls in the waist, but not this one.
