Statement Stripe Tee
Nice heavy t shirt
This is a nice heavy shirt that fit me just a little loosely. I wear a size 16 or 18 usually and an extra large just skimmed my body, not tight at all.

Versatile and cute
I ordered this in the classic red and white stripe, size medium. It arrived last night and I'm wearing it right now. Great lightweight top and I can see a lot of versatilty - pair it with jeans, a denim jumper, a denim skirt and a great pair of flats, etc.
One thing a little off-putting is, there's a honking seam down the middle of the back and I'm not sure how I feel about that. It's the same stitching as at the wrists and neck, so it matches the overall look. I'm just not used to having a seam screaming down the middle of my back on a tee like this.
Even with that, I'm really enjoying this purchase. I do wish I would have read the reviews first regarding the shrinkage - I might have gone a size up. I appreciate the heads up about being careful with washing. Maybe this is one I'll hang to dry.
Pending the outcome of the first laundering, I think I would buy more, but maybe wait until they're on sale.

Statement Striped Tee
I have worn tees from Appleseeds now for several years - but this one runs EXTREMELY SMALL. Since I had worn them many times before I washed and put it in the closet. Could not return ....

I've just ordered my 3rd color. I really like the fabric. It does run small.
I order petites and I get a size larger but I cannot put this top in the dryer.

ALLOW for shrinkage
I purchased both the carribean blue and light gray. Cotton is my favorite fabric and I ALWAYS allow one size for shrinkage. This tee did SHRINK from a L to M (what I allowed). I have long arms and could use another inch in sleeve length AFTER shrinkage. THE TREND seems to be 3/4 sleeves which I cannot wear due to EDEMA in one arm from BC Surgery.
I was thrilled to find COTTON in long sleeves.
The weight is excellent for me & if they go on sale I may order more colors. They launder very well; but I watch my dryer CLOSELY and take items out just before they are dry, hang and consider them a good staple with jeans and capri's.

I really really wanted this top to fit!! I had so many ways to wear this. But once I got it, I knew it was going to have to go back. The fabric is somewhat thin and being 100% cotton, I figured it would shrink. It is cut very close to the body, which wouldn't allow any wiggle room once you washed and dried it. Not wanting to chance that, since it seemed overall small already, I had to send it back, bummer.
