This is a beautiful blouse, as are the linen blouses that I have from Territory Ahead (and I have several), but absolutely spectacular is the IRIS color! It is brilliantly a deep purplish blue and is exactly the color shown on the website. You will not be disappointed with this blouse, and if you pass it by when it's on sale, you will have missed a great deal. Highly recommended. I ordered my usual size, M,and it fit perfectly.
