Did you know that linen is one of the oldest fabrics in all existence? The fabric, made from the flax plant, has been found wrapped around mummies from thousands of years ago. The oldest clothing item recorded in history is the linen Tarkhan dress from Egypt’s first Dynasty approximately 5,000 years ago.

It’s no wonder that despite all of the new fabrics available, linen is still one of the most treasured of them all.

Linen is a naturally sustainable fabric that requires no pesticides to grow. You will typically find endless linen shops in Europe, or sourced from Europe because Flax grows in a wide coastal band of Western Europe stretching from France through to Belgium and the Netherlands.

I have been an avid linen lover since I found myself living in Europe at the age of 29 years old. I quickly took to linen and, within a couple of years, my closet was primarily linen, organic cotton, and a few treasured Tencel pieces. To this day, if you ask me which fabric is the best, Linen would be the clear winner.

It is my pleasure to write this blog post for you all today. Hopefully, you will find your forever linen dress in this line-up and experience the comfort and ease of a Linen dress.

P.s. the perfect layering piece for any of these dresses would be a petticoat – we share our favorites here.

This gorgeous handmade linen dress comes in custom sizing and in over 20 different colors. The reason I choose to shop on Etsy more than any other platform is because of the option for customized sizing and colors without the crazy added costs. You are speaking directly with the owner and they are so helpful and willing to create the dress of your dreams. This is a fitted maxi dress with side pockets.

I saved up my pennies and purchased this dress 2 years ago and have cherished it from the first moment I slipped it over my head. This is, by far, the best linen dress I have ever owned. The weight is shocking for a linen dress – quite heavy and perfect for Fall to Winter transitions. Each year when the weather begins to cool, I excitedly run to storage to pull out this piece.
