A long sleeved loose fitting midi length dress in beautifully soft, Oeko-Tex certified laundered linen. Choose from olive, plum, honeycomb (mid weight), tea rose & ink. Please feel free to request a sample of any of the fabrics as it can be tricky to capture true colour via photograph. For rust checked fabric, click here.
The dress has two darts on the side seams of the front bodice, a gathered skirt with either hidden in seam pockets or patch pockets & mother of pearl buttons up the front bodice. (For the honeycomb linen I use small brown natural corozo buttons instead). The bodice is designed to be unfitted for a comfortable, loose fit. All sizes are 110cm long.
100% stone washed linen. Wash at 30 degrees with a natural detergent & do not tumble dry. Linen seizes up slightly after washing but will soften again once it’s worn.
‘Archet’ is an old Dorset word for orchard.
