Features an elegant mandarin collar and soft flattering gathers along the front and back, button front. Delicate pintucks on the shoulders billow down to a lightly gathered cuff.

All measurements are taken in cm on a flat garment (please double for circumference). All garments are made by hand and may vary slightly.

We recommend looking at the garment’s measurements in relation to your body, and also in comparison to a similar style of clothing you own. This is a great way to understand the shape and size of a style.

Our linen styles are made from premium European flax linen, pre-washed, and ready to wear on arrival. Some are lightly pressed - within no time the fabric will soften with wear, crinkles and wrinkles will come naturally, giving it that stunning unironed look that we have all come to love. If you would like to speed up this process, we recommend popping it in the washing machine, following the washing instructions found on your garments care label, and skipping any ironing.
