I purchased this shrug for a dance that we were doing for a conference and for me and two other girls our shrug tore just by putting it on. Mine tore at the seam where the two materials meet and another was torn when it cam out of the package. Money had to be spent to fix them just so that the could be worn for the dance. I was very dissatisfied with the shrug and definitely would not purchase it again or recommend it to others.
Absolutely stunning fabric and look! Very happy with the product, and the feel of wearing it. Like hummingbird wings! However it runs very small. Fabric pulls tightly across shoulders with normal use, and I popped the back hem, which I had to re-stitch on my machine. Hems are stitched with a gauzy thread that frays and pulls easily, so I zig-zag stitched over the weak spots with stronger thread. If you have long arms, or broad shoulders, this will probably not fit you, even the med/large size. Still, a lovely costume piece!
