I really like the length of the dolman sleeves - not too short and not too long - just right for me. Even though the fabric has some linen in it, I think it will wash well in cold water and just hang to dry per their suggestions. I was a bit concerned about the knotted frontage. This does not seem to add any bulk to my tummy area - subtle and flat knot. A little on the "blousy" side; but that is okay for hiding any figure flaws. Top great on its own or under a blazer. The "V" neckline is a little bit low; but still quite acceptable. Great little top to even wear under a blouse in weather that is a bit cooler or if going south, I would for sure take this top. Because of the neutral colour, it will go with everything you take.
