Details

The colorful genus of flowers known as "lily of the Incas" was the inspiration for the hand-embroidered design of this organic cotton blouse. Peruvian artisans hand-stitch a handful of petite flowers along with a wealth of soutache embroidery and crocheted lace details at the bust and cuffs. Button-and-loop closures and a V-neck collar, along with comfortable stretch-knit vertical side panels, make this blouse perfect for work or weekends.

"Beautiful But Too Tight"

This is a beautiful blouse but unfortunately it is very small in the bust, it also has a flare at the bottom that doesn't show in the picture; I had to return it.

"FINEST QUALITY seen in years!"

I bought this in white and ordered 2, one in XL and another in XXL. Wanted to be sure to have one for party in Hawaii in January and wasn't sure about fit. This is the most beautiful piece I have found in years. No one makes things like this anymore. Both fit through waste and hips, the XXL just had a bit more room in the hips. I am keeping both! The seams and stitching detail are amazing; as well as the cotton fabric being unreal. I really love this top if you can't tell...

"Sizing not accurate"

I am a size medium to large. The only size available was extra large so I took a chance and ordered it. The sizing is definitely off. This was too small in the bust. I like the embroidery however if I keep this I will have to do some alterations.

"Wonderful!"

This shirt fit nicely on me. I'm tall and the sleeves were generously long. I plan on getting another color.

"Way too small in the bust!"

I loved this blouse until I put it on. I ordered the 2X size as I usually do but this blouse is definitely not sized for a large busted woman. I had no problem buttoning it from the bust down but the top half was at least 7-8" to narrow. Fabric was beautiful. Too bad about the sizing.

"Beautifully made and styled, but too large"

I ordinarily wear a size 8-10 so ordered this in a medium. Sleeves way too big and long, shoulders too wide. So sorry to have to return it because it is gorgeously embroidered.

"Exquisite!"

I love this because it is gorgeous, comfortable and perfect to wear with leggings. I ordered the white and blue and am so glad I did. These could also be jackets. I ordered an xl as am usually a 14-16. It fits me perfectly. The blouse is as beautiful in the back as the front, and it is very unique. I have nothing as delicate, yet substantial in my wardrobe.

Best Uses
  • I intend to wear over leggings
  • I am always cold, especially in air conditioned spaces, so the long sleeves will be perfect

"Disapointing!"

Lovely embroidery BUT bust is way too tight and I am not large chested and collar way too big. The flare at the bottom was unexpected looking at the picture and not flattering.

"Classy yet comfy"

The detailing on this blouse makes it outstanding. It is intricate enough to draw attention yet not so elaborate as to make it a distraction. The quality is top notch and the details are well finished. I enjoy getting compliments on this top and nearly everyone wants to know "Where did you get it?" I'm glad to share the Novica website with them.

"Great fit!"

This is really nicely tailored. It's great with jeans, and can function both for work or a night out.

"Beautiful blouse"

The stitching on the blouse is beautiful. Use as my fancy top (I'm a jeans and t-shirt person). It ran slightly small, I thought, so when I bought a second color, I went up a size.

Best Uses
  • Fun night out
