When the kimono was a TSV, I ummed and aaahed and missed the boat. So, on Renee's last trip, I watched all of her shows hoping that the kimono would feature again and how pleased I was when the kimonos appeared as a OTO. I did not hesitate to buy the leopard and coral prints in medium. I'm 14/16 and the medium fit perfectly. I note the concerns of other reviewers but I have seen the kimono modelled on various occasions and was not expecting a garment that met at the front, though mine can. I wanted the equivalent of a sophisticated, open front cardigan which hung straight either side and created a vertical (and slimming) central block. I am pleased with the material, the design and the style. I have approximately 20 Renee pieces - several dresses and ballerina tops, a skirt and a pair of trousers - and they are all beautifully designed and finished. I look forward to her next visit and TSV.

Bought this as a OTO in coral. Very medocre quality; poor finishing and pattern wasn't aligned properly at the back.
Also very peculiar fit; as I'm only 5 foot I looked swamped in it

What a waste of P&P
I have been admiring this Kimono style jacket for a while, so when it was offered at a one time only I could not resist. I bought it in the black, I am a size 8/10 and ordered a medium and that was ok, but the fabric and the finish was appauling the seams (stitching) around the neckiline did not meet and it had a piece of fabric from where the jacket had been cut still dangling from the seam, I understand QVC quality control cannot inspect every item but this was not even market worthy on a finish and fabric basis. I have spent an awful lot of items back recently especially items of clothing, as they do tend to look cheap in real life, Next time I shall be more careful as it is costing me an awful lot of money in P&P No more Renee for me

Nice top but sizing is wrong
I love Renee's range and have a few items but I was disapointed with this purchase. It was the size XL1 normally this will be fine but it was about 6 inches too small, I will keep it as I am on a diet so it will be a better fit eventually but ladies do but the next size up, I dont know what happended with the sizing here. The top is great otherwise.
