The fabric is interesting --- it's a matte blend of 90% viscose and 10% polyester. It does not have the lustre of many Johnny Was rayon pieces and I thought that would be a good, more casual look for me. The style is also interesting with the pretty back yoke and the ecru eyelet at shoulders and on sleeves. The colors would be wonderful for me with navy, maybe faint black and lovely jewels tones of teal, aqua, coral. Unfortunately the fabric does not drape and, on me, the top looks too thick and blousy in the front. I hope others will find the fit/drape flattering because it is a versatile, stylish top.

This is such a pretty print. It is also a different style than the other Johnny Was silk tops and I like that!!! It’s pretty LONG for an XL. VERY long, so shorter people be aware. Wearing these silk tops is wonderful. Like I said in a review of a similar item, it is like wearing a breeze. Washing takes a moment and drying a minute!! Very excellent for travel or as a toss-on after yoga!! I am not fond of this neck. The tie makes the V-neck floppy no matter what I try for closure. That said, I will keep it because of the rest of the styling, pleating, gold finishing and flow of it!!

Yes I know I am x-tra short, however for an EXTRA small this is very, very long. That said, I really like it. I have several of these silk tunics and I love them. SOOOO comfy, soft, pretty. It is like wearing a breeze. They wash in a moment and dry in a second. So easy to travel with. Other than being quite a bit TOO long on my body they are The Best!!

This might be the most perfect fitting and comfortable swimsuit top I've ever bought. I'm a 34 D and went for the large. Its the perfect mix of coverage and sexiness. I stand up paddle daily so I need something to stand up to strenuous athletic activity and this top, along with the high-waisted matching bottoms, are PERFECT!

Really cute top but runs very big! I am 5’3”, 130 lbs and the XS is just sloppy big on me. Sadly had to return.

The fit is right on as expected. This is a nice top. The embroidery is very pretty and the length is nice (I'm 5'10"). Honestly, I just couldn't justify the price and returned it.

I bought this to wear as a summer dress! The fabric is soft and beautiful and the cut wonderful and flattering. I just have to figure out how to tie the front tie so my bra doesn't show -- it's cut very low. I'll work that out and wear it all summer -- casual, semi dressy, cute with sandals. Slightly below knee length on my 5'6" self. Not midi, really.

Stunning! ...but totally see-thru'. I was expecting that since it looks that way in the photos. True to size. I'm 5'4" & 135-140lbs & the medium fits perfect, nice & flowy. Wanted something to look great for my upcoming 50th b'day party but also feel super comfy & be able to eat & drink in without it getting "tighter" as the night goes on, lol. The embroidery is even more beautiful in person. Love it!!!

overall cute, great embroidery.....but, the sleeves were tight and goodness cheap construction. The pouch had a couple of places where the stitching was unravelling. At these price points it needs to be perfect.

Johnny Was is my go-to brand. It's always beautiful and well made. This Jenna blouse, however, ticked most of my boxes except for the fact that, even though I ordered an extra small, it was HUGE! The sleeves are like bat wings which sort of connect from the armpit to the bottom hem and ruined the design for me. I love the colors and pattern but this was a miss and had to go back.
