So flattering because the garment dyed linen is beautifully soft! It is cut on the bias so it hangs softly on the body and is an A-line shape so it doesn't cling ! There is a V neck both at the front and the back. It is sewn with cotton thread so isn't scratchy either and there are darts at the bust so it doesn't gape at the front. It has narrow merrow edged frills around the V neck and armholes, and a machine hem. It measures 44" across the bust and flares to the hem. From shoulder to hem is 41" approx. but it will probably be shorter when on the body.
