100% Organic linen dress by Eileen Fisher, block printed by hand with ARAW // SUN using an eco-friendly water-based screen printing ink. Each dress is made-to-order, so please allow a few weeks lead time for printing, drying and curing the ink prior to shipping. Shipping by December 24th is available.
The fabric is thin and lightweight, in a "handkerchief" linen. Linen is a cooling fabric that allows for airflow and can keep you cooler on hot days, absorbing moisture without holding bacteria! Linen is a natural fiber spun from flax seeds and has a lower environmental footprint than cotton. With wear, linen becomes softer and more pliable over time.
The design is meant to be a bit oversized. Size down from your typical size for a slimmer fit if desired. See sizing chart below for designer's recommended sizing by body measurements. Those who are shorter or have shorter torsos may consider Petite sizes (PP, PS, PM). Model pictured is 5'4'' with a 27 inch waist and is wearing an XS. Fabric measurements can be provided and we are happy to help you determine the best size prior to your purchase -please use the form on the "contact us" page to ask any sizing questions.
Hand washing in cold water and line drying is recommended to preserve the printed design, though machine washing with like colors can be done in a pinch. Please note that with any screen-printed fabric, fading of the print is expected with washing and wearing over time.
