Main: 100% Linen
Lining: 100% Cotton

This garment has been crafted from 100% French Linen, a natural fibre from flax grown in the northern regions of France. Linen is a light, breathable fabric that is durable and strong. It wrinkles easily which is part of its appeal, it is easy to care for and becomes softer with age and wear.

Flax is a highly productive crop requiring minimal water, herbicides or pesticides to grow, making it a better environmental choice than many other natural fibres, such as conventionally grown cotton.


  • Cropped length
  • Neat slim fit throughout, size up if wanting to wear as a laying piece.
  • Key measurements to check are the bust and length
