Maybe with Some Adjustments...
on February 16, 2014
I was really excited to receive this item, as I've been satisfied with Allegra K's shirts before, but ended up a bit disappointed once I first tried this on.
This item is not the slightly muted, sophisticated orange in the photo, but a bright orange (think if you were buying a pumpkin costume for Halloween. That orange.). Now, that would be all right, but the shirt I received did not have the same ruffle effect at the bottom like the top in the photo, and did not give the same silhouette. The sleeves were also wide, rather than form fitting. The shoulders were not a problem like other reviewers had suggested. Overall, it was just a bit bulky in all areas but the trunk of the shirt, rather than chic like the photo would suggest.
If I went in to get adjustments done (tighten sleeves, shorten the peplum, etc.), I suppose this shirt would be passable. This one isn't one of Allegra K's strongest designs.
