Beautiful colour (Celadon green is my favourite colour) so typically 1930's 1940s and not a colour that you see often nowadays. Due to recent weight gain I ordered the size 16. It fits me perfectly for now but i suspect that if i washed it and it shrunk at all then the arms wouldn't fit as they are a bit snug as the last review said. If i buy this in another colour i will probably have to go up a size even though i will be gutted to have to as i was a size 10 when i started buying HOF. ANother thing is i find the bow to be quite bulky but i think that is just me and my body shape as i'm used to being very small chested and since gaining weight i am not used to being more bulky on top. Oh, and as someone else mentioned, you definaltely want to put your lipstick on after dressing and not before. I find this style of top where it has to go on over the head can be quite claustrophobic but maybe that's just me again. Apart from that it is a lovely blouse as an usual, expertly made. I think if the sleeves came with buttons that i could adjust it would be perfect.

Such a gorgeous blouse. The colour is a perfect neutral in that it went with soooo many other separates but wasn't the predictable cream/white/beige. The shape is a lovely soft 40's silhouette - very pretty. I couldn't get my normal size 10 - so I chose the 12 and I am really glad I did. The arms (I suspect) would have been too snug on my normal size and, as it's quite blousy (in the right way), it works brilliantly. Top little number.
