I received this tunic as a birthday present two years ago (after much hinting.) I'm just now getting around to reviewing it. The batik print is striking, and the length is great on my 5'3" frame. I wear this over a denim pencil skirt, and have gotten many nice compliments on the shirt. I'm glad TA still offers it for sale.
not sure about this
Just received, haven't worn. Bad smell, probably from dye, will wash to see what happens. It looks to be white/blue in photo but mine is actually blue/blue - wonder if it had already been washed and the dye ran? I am 5'3"", 145 Lb. 38"" bust; got size Large - and the armholes are tight and it is tight across the back; thought it would be fuller-cut, esp. from the bust on down; it is not (at least on me). Not sure if I will send back ($ to return though I got it on sale). The fabric is thin, not heavy; also - sleeves are too narrow to roll them up - if I do they are too tight. So not sure if it's a keeper or not. Maybe I would be better off sticking to TA stretchy garments!
I just love this tunic! I feel sleek and dramatic in it. It's my go-to top when I want to look summer cool, but not overexposed, and just enough cover for air conditioning. It looks great with or without a tank top.

Attractive But Not On Me
Quality, lightweight, dressy batik cotton that hangs down nicely. Love the colors and style but even with size XS, overall, it was still quite overwhelming and oversized for my petite 5'2"" frame.
A Wardrobe Staple for Semi-Tropical Climates
I live just 20 miles north of the Florida state line, so we have very hot, humid summers lasting almost six months, necessitating clothes that can move easily from sweltering heat to frigid air-conditioned interiors. This fills the bill, since the fabric is light enough to be comfortable outdoors, and the sleeves can be rolled up and buttoned in place, but it also keeps one from getting goose bumps indoors. The color combination allows it to be worn with blue, white, and surprisingly, with a pair of light gray slacks I got from another company. The embroidery is ornament enough, but it does have a good neckline for showing off any jewelry you have that might complement it. I love it so much I would gladly buy it again when I see it in the catalog, but preferably another color or pattern in order to have something different.
