anxieties about linen creasing too easily should be dispelled.

let it crease- thats what gives it its soft relaxed feel.

seems like i am back to a bit of crinkle again, see my previous post here. crinkle.

linen,love it or loathe it?

i am all for natural fibres, so i like a bit of linen and i really dont mind a crease here and there, i agree it can be a pain if you need to look sharp,but frankly for me,thats part of its appeal.

linen hasnt been on trend as a cloth for fashion for many years now, the last time probably was back in the mid 90’s. when everyone had linen trousers and shirts in their wardrobes. along with a slouchy linen suit.

in fact in my loft bags i have uncovered a gorgeous coral linen skirt along with a great black linen sundress that will defintely be back as part of my summer wardrobe this year.

but i really fancy a linen blazer. or maybe a big sundress… i am really loving masscob, they have some lovely linen pieces. so i have put together a little pinterest shopping board, so check it out here. linen bits and bobs

 

thanks
