Was intended for a big night out (lace top= more formal) but the material is actually described on the inner pack as ''Terry'', not mentioned in the description. Another review noted this. The Fabric is soft, but thick cotton, like a sweat shirt, so not at all suitable for the event (or suited to lace) and the lace sometimes looked blue against the nice 'Cadbury purple'. The 3/4 sleeves would have been welcome but the width of ''small'' was excessive. I would never have ordered it! Disappointing and returned.
