John Lewis Girls' Long Sleeved Fitted Cotton School Blouse, White
Ironing these makes me weep
Lovely shape, lovely fit. But despite following the washing instructions to the letter, they come out of the machine crumpled to the size of a tennis ball. The creases are indelible - and I happily a lot of linen things. The other reviewers must be more stalwart women than me!

Cotton, fits well
This is the second set of these shirts that I have bought for my daughter. The material is slightly thinner than a couple of years ago, but is still good quality. The shirts wash well & iron up beautifully (yes you do need to iron them!).
The cut is good, back & sleeve length are true to size. My daughter is normal/to curvy and these shirts are more stylish & flattering than the norm for a school shirt.

This is a first - a school shirt that actually fits my daughter by her age (very slim 13 year old). The cotton is thicker for this time of year which is a plus, the only downside is that it isn't as bright a white as the other poly shirts and a bit harder to iron. I'll be buying some more for next school year. Wish it came in a rever collar style though as this is her preferred neckline.

I love these shirts but wish they were easier to get hold of. They feel lovely and soft and yet are good thick quality. Daughter is comfortable and looks smart.
The fit is perfect and true to size on my normal / slim daughter. I found some second hand and they were fantastic too, so last a long time and soften even more
Please make more John Lewis

This was too fitted for my daughter unfortunately, and the cuffs were too narrow to get her hands through! The fabric is lovely though. It would be nice to see some standard blouses in 100% cotton, it is so hard to find cotton blouses, but they are so much better for my daughter's skin.

why only fitted 100% cotton blouses?
This blouse is probably more suitable for slimmer girls as it is quite narrowly fitted. I bought a size up for my daughter so it fits nicely around the torso except that the sleeves are too long, so we've folded the cuffs over which doesn't look too obvious. My question is why isn't there more of a selection in 100% cotton; it's not that hard to iron and feels a lot better on the skin than horrible easy-care shirts.

very elegant school blouse
This 100% cotton blouse was just what I needed for my teenage daughter with eczema. The fitted style is very elegant - it fits her beautifully and she likes it too.

Good Quality Shirt - true to size
Lovely cotton blouse. Good quality but obviously being 100% cotton you must iron whilst damp. A little heavier than I expected but lovely and soft so fantastic for the winter!!!
