Inspired by our previous Goldie Style from Metta Melbourne days gone by, the Jolie Dress is crafted from European grown, woven and sewn linen. With a lovely thick strap, drawstring waist, side pockets and handy side seam slits for ease of movement and layering.
Ticking Stripe was originally known as ‘ticking fabric’ and made from thickly woven cotton or linen, and in this case a lovely lightweight woven European linen. ‘Ticking’ comes from the Greek word ‘theka’, which means ‘case’ or ‘covering’ as this delightful fabric has been traditionally used in the home to cover mattresses, keeping straw and feathers securely in. We fell in love with this timeless stripe many years ago, and love to incorporate it into our collections.
Photographs show the Jolie with a white drawstring. It has since been updated to a natural coloured linen ribbon. See final image of the Jolie Dress with Micro Check.

All measurements are taken in cm on a flat garment (please double for circumference), they are made by hand and may vary slightly. We recommend looking at the garment’s measurements and comparing it to a similar item in your wardrobe.
Our linen styles are made from premium European flax linen, pre-washed, and ready to wear on arrival. Some are lightly pressed - within no time the fabric will soften with wear, crinkles and wrinkles will come naturally, giving it that stunning unironed look that we have all come to love.
