Thin, a bit translucent, runs small, not like the picture
on 18 October 2014
Firstly, this was just slightly too small. I'm usually a UK 10-12 (u.s.a. 6-8) and It was just slightly too tight. That being said, this white fabric, while it looks like a sort of wooly thick material in the photo, is more like three layers of what you might make a white neglige out of. It's more like three layers of a polyester chiffon, which means it's sort of see-through and if you iron it (it looks silly if you don't) you have to be careful so that the layers don't overlap and cause creases. The ribbon on the front isn't flouncy and neither is the collar, but I expect thats to do with the fabric as well. The shoulder has a bouffant (the thing with the pleats that makes the jacket look 80s). Honestly, I think it makes me look like John Travolta. But it's lightweight and I think it might look better on someone else. I'll probably donate it. It was worth the 11 odd pounds though.
