Fabric

90% linen, 10% cotton

Did you know?

Cotton: is a natural fibre favoured for its breathability - which means it's cool to wear in the summer while warm in the winter. It's hypo-allergenic and so is especially suitable for people with skin sensitivity. It's also long lasting and easy care - it's machine washable.

Linen: Is a natural fibre and is super breathable making it especially cool and comfortable to wear in the heat. It's very durable and is twice as strong as cotton, it isn't stretchy and tailors well but creases easily.

Exceptional 5.0

A very nice light dress, that is really good and not applying. I look forward to the holidays, for which I bought it. Still, this dress will beautify the balmy summer evenings.

Original customer review

Ein sehr schönes leichtes Kleid, das wirklich gut fällt und nicht aufträgt. Ich freue mich schon auf den Urlaub, für den ich es mir gekauft habe. Die lauen Sommerabende wird dieses Kleid noch verschönern.

Great 4.0

The color is bright beautiful, even more intense than on the Internet. I cut the straps (lifting), now it is even more beautiful. Laminated problem areas and easy breezy.

Original customer review

Die Farbe ist leuchtend schön, noch intensiver als im Internet. Ich habe die Bänder (Raffung) abgeschnitten, jetzt fällt es noch schöner. Kaschiert Problemzonen und fällt luftig leicht.

The quality... is high The product runs… quite big

beautiful dress, color more beautiful than the picture. However, iron due to the special gathering will be a special challenge

Original customer review

wunderschönes Kleid, Farbe schöner als im Bild. Allerdings dürfte das Bügeln wegen der speziellen Raffung eine besondere Herausforderung werden

Great 4.0

Once you let the raised hem down, sure it would be fabulous. The colour and side panel excellent. Incredibly comfortable, but just trying on looked so creased. I know it is linen but not for me, so returned

The quality... is what I expected The product runs… true to size

Great 4.0

The cut of the dress is beautiful - I would cut away arguably the ruffle lines because I'd like better. However, is not the picture the color but is much greener. I wanted to dress like a turquoise, so it went back.

Original customer review

Der Schnitt des Kleides ist schön - ich hätte wohl auch die Raffungsschnüre weggeschnitten, weil mir das besser gefallen würde. Allerdings entspricht die Farbe nicht der Abbildung, sondern ist deutlich grüner. ich wollte aber gerne ein türkises Kleid, deshalb ging es zurück.

Very good 3.0

The color of the dress is very scön. It is however legit. As it is anyway much too large it goes back.

Original customer review

Die Farbe des Kleides ist sehr scön. Es trägt allerdings unwarscheinlich auf. Da es mir sowieso viel zu gross ist geht es zurück.

Very good 3.0

I ordered this despite the bizarre hem (I do not believe that fussiness is a good thing on the larger / curvier woman ..... much better to wear clean lines) BUT ... having noted that other reviewers had found it very easy to unpick links so as to create a simple uniform longline hem ..... I thought I'd give it a whirl. Lovely linen/cotton fabric .... and rich turquoise colour ... BUT ... the sleeves were really bulky (unconducive to wearing a jacket over) and the seaming over the bust falling to hanging pleats off the bust were so hugely unflattering to a woman with a larger bust .... I am surprised that this has been made in larger sizes. I did contemplate snipping the linking to make the hemline straight (very easy as the linking pieces of fabric are super easy to get to) and then cutting the whole length of the front of the dress open and binding it .... so as to make this into a light, open fronted jacket ... but decided not to take the risk .... despite the fabric being lovely.
