This is an off-white Moygashel Irish linen dress featuring a floral “cut-out” design. The dress has drop shoulder sleeves and is made in a sheath style - straight narrow cut with no waistline and fitted with darts. I’ve posed the dress with a dark colored slip underneath - you would have to wear the dress with some type of slip underneath it, but the nice thing is that you can choose which color to accent the dress with depending on your mood that day. The dress closes at the back with a metal zipper. The floral shapes are accented with beige stitching. There is a short kick vent at the center back.
