Helen is a contemporary dress created with a striking pleated skirt. Helen is luxurious in this premium golden linen that is laundered and buttery soft. A great dress worn free letting the volumes of cloth entice you. Yet can just as easily be cinched at the waist to create a grecian goddess silhouette. Wear with chunky boots or delicate flats, either way you will look amazing.

Simple and understated, Helen contains many hidden details; a scooped neckline with topstitched front and back neck facings, deep inverted pleats create extra swish and fullness in the skirt. The kimono sleeves are rolled at the hem to finish 3/4 length. Deep side seam pockets as standard for all your bits and bobs.

Model is a UK size 8 and is wearing a size 2 for an oversized look.

Fabric and care guide

100% Linen: made using European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. It is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric. This linen is woven in a mill run on green energy and is Oeko-Tex certified. 100% linen. Wash at 30 degrees using a mild detergent. Shake out and hang to dry. Medium iron as required. Linen will always seize up after washing but the fibres will soon relax when worn.

All of our garments are cut for comfort. Each style is dual sized and will be slightly looser on the smaller size. Please see our Helen size chart for finished garment measurements.

MADE TO ORDER - We make our garments to order so that nothing is wasted. We work to a three week schedule from order to dispatch. This may change during busy periods but we will always let you know/

Made in Lancashire, England
