When I purchased this top it was actually an oopsie. I am not the type to try things on when I’m in the store and I should have with this one. I was hoping to wear this as a shirt sometimes and a dress others. I did not see the splits on the sides and was disappointed after I got home. Clearly splits that high will prohibit this from being worn in a dress form. I do have a different idea for it which I will feature on my “multiple ways to wear” week. Thanks for stopping by!
