Soft, wave-like ripples reminiscent of Thailand’s southern beaches grace this crinkled cotton top which flows and flatters. Just like the solid-color version, this top is as easy to wear as your favorite T-shirt, but with an asymmetrical pocket, understated stripes, and a drapey cut to give it contemporary flair. Lightweight and easy to layer, it will be a year-round go-to. The fitted shoulder keeps the look relaxed but never sloppy. Handmade in a small workshop in northern Thailand.
To freshen up the texture, you can twist the top up when it comes out of the washing machine and let it dry that way (something you may remember doing with broomstick skirts in the 1970s, or 1990s, or today).
We recommend washing dark colors separately and drying on low heat or out of direct sunlight to minimize shrinkage and keep the colors true.
I am 5 feet tall and I love the cropped length. It is long enough to look good with leggings, yet short enough so it doesn’t overwhelm me. I wish there were more colors.
I bought the XL size after reading other reviews, but the armholes and bustline of this shirt are still SO SMALL, while the acreage of fabric below that is quite substantial. I wouldn’t have minded the extra fabric below, but oof! the top is very constraining and looks unbalanced with the rest of the shirt, not to mention it’s quite binding and uncomfortable. I’m also not quite sure how you would keep its shape - coming out of the bag, I had to pull it in different directions to make it look like a regular shirt. The crinkle fabric seems to favor bunching up in odd ways. Very sad, cuz on the the whole, the fabric feel & the color are nice. It was returned.
