This is a semi-fitted blouse - much closer than our shirt blouses because it needs to skim the body to create the silhouette. However, if it is too tight on the bust it will not look as elegant. For this reason, we have tried to be fairly generous in the measurements because this fabric has no stretch in it.

*Please note - this blouse is designed to be worn with garments that fit on the natural waist. Approx length of blouse is 19inches/49cm

Please refer to the table below as a size guide for your body. If you are in between - size up.

I love the design of this top, its so unique. The crocus pattern is beautiful and the texture of the fabric feels like true vintage rayon. Unfortunately this blouse did not quite fit me but I think I just need to get a bigger size. I am never sure what size to get because I am in between sizes and I tend to have to size down because of my short stature and narrow shoulders. I sized down but I think I should have followed the size chart in this case. The waist was a little tight on me which created an unflattering blouson effect in the back. I think this kind of blouse looks best if it skims the body loosely to create a smooth line. For reference my measurements are 38-29-42.5 and I bought a size 12.

Beautiful blouse! The color and print are lovely, and the fabric is so breezy and comfortable. I love that HoF provides detailed descriptions and sizing advice. I'm not completely sure I would purchase this style again for myself because the fit on me is a little odd. I'm approximately 34/35"–27"–38" (87/89–69–97cm) and I went with the size 10. The waist is perfect and the length falls right at the top of my hips (I'm 5'3"). I may be a tad busty for this size (I wear 32DD/E cup), as it doesn't lay quite as elegantly as I believe is intended. However, I think if I were to size up, the neck would be too large, since it is a little loose when I hook the front. If you are close to my waist with a smaller bust, I think the size 10 would fit fabulously. I would definitely send over an email for more specific advice if you are unsure, which I will be doing going forward! Overall, I'm extremely happy with the quality of this blouse and will wear it happily.
