The Essentials Collection Ophelia Shirt Dress is a collarless designed shirtmaker dress featuring all the hallmarks of a man's shirt including set-in sleeves, button-up cuffs & a curved shirt-tail hem that finishes just below the knee. With hidden pockets in the side seams, this style is extremely functional.  Gathering falls gently through the front and back from the yoke, a design feature to add fullness and flow to this shirt dress. This wardrobe staple will be with you for many years to come.  It is timeless and trans-seasonal.

Styling Tip :  Wear it as a loose button-through dress or bring in the waist with a tie belt in the same linen. Alternatively, wear it open as a jacket over a slip dress like our Kennedy. It looks amazing with denim and functions superbly over bathers at the beach.

Care Instructions
We recommend that you follow these simple guidelines to care for your Ophelia Shirt Dress:

  • Wash with other black articles
  • Turn your garment inside out to reduce friction on the right side
  • Use a spray stain remover around the collar for make-up stains
  • Use the gentle or hand wash cycle on your washing machine
  • Wash in cold or lukewarm water
  • Use a mild detergent such as a wool mix - do not add a softener
  • Give your garment a shake out and dry on a hanger, avoiding direct sunlight
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Iron inside out using the linen setting on your iron OR
  • Embrace the wrinkles and don't iron at all
  • For more intentional wrinkles we suggest twisting the garment before wearing.  

  • With a dark-coloured garment, (especially if you are wearing Ophelia as a jacket which is not worn right next to the skin), washing after every wear may not be necessary - less is more for your garment & for the environment.

    Own a few ES shirts and will be buying more. This is great worn open as a jacket. Thanks for including pockets - thoughtful design.
