Not Perfect Linen

French Boyfriend Shirt Dress

Relaxed-fit linen shirtdress for everyday wear.
High, mandarin collar with split, henley-style neckline. Long sleeves, perfect for rolling up. Box pleat in the back. Curved shirttail hem, split at the side; hangs slightly lower in the back. Pockets in side seam at both hips.
Wear as a dress or pair it with the Genova pants styled as a shirt.


DETAILS:

Made in Lithuania from medium weight (200 g) linen fabric. The fabric is supremely soft as the garment is prewashed to ensure no shrinkage in the future.

Made from OEKO - TEX Standard 100 certified European linen fabric which guarantees you that it meets human - ecological requirements.

FIT:

Cut to be perfectly comfortable - loose enough to allow for free movements, and long enough to wear alone or with pants underneath.

We recommend choosing the size you normally wear in order to have a relaxed fit.

 

For those who like a more fitted look, you may want to size down, but please check the measurements carefully, especially across the bust.

In order of appearance:

Marie Lee is wearing size small, NPL model wearing size small/medium.

TAKING CARE:

Machine wash in cold water on a gentle cycle.
Dry on low heat or hang to dry for best results.
We invite you to embrace linen’s natural wrinkles. We do not suggest that you iron your garment, but if this is your preference, we recommend ironing it inside-out on a medium-high setting. Garments may also be steamed on a moderate setting.
