Fresh Picks Shirt
Very pretty, but wow, NOT petite
I should have ordered smaller. The petite large fits like a regular extra large. All my crinkle 3/4 sleeve shirts in S and PM fit fine I think they were out of PM and I was afraid it might shrink....don't know what I was thinking. I will wash it with a view to shrink it if possible, and alter it myself since its a nuisance to return , it was a good sale price, and I want to wear it while it is still summer, I will make it a 3/4 length sleeve while I'm at it , because I hate having to roll sleeves, (and the ridiculous tabs that are on so many shirts.)
It's a full cut shirt with no darts or fitted seams. Runs Large, forgiving and boxy. It has side vents.
I'm finding that many of the shirts I buy in petites from appleseeds and the Tog shop hang long at the hem line. The sleeves also seem long to me. I'm 5'2 and 150 lbs, but still, petites should look trimmer. I wonder how long the regular would have been?
On the plus side, the colors and fabric pattern are really beautiful. It may need to be ironed, but it is cool and pretty and worth the effort for such a pretty print. It comes up in a search for crinkle shirts, but it is a smooth cotton like my bed sheets.

A nice inexpensive shirt for casual events!
This is a nice shirt for your picnics and other get-togethers when you need a light top in the evenings. The colors are nicely matched and expect it to wash and dry well.

Pretty but too big
I really like floral pattern, very cheerful! Fit is really big.. Would order a size smaller.

colorful and cool looking
My only concern is that it wrinkles so much and has to be ironed before each wearing. If you like to iron then it is for you. Personally I use the iron as little as possible.
