Our dreamiest style to date, the Poet's Shirt Dress has been crafted from soft European flax linen. Featuring subtle gathering and a full button front, the Poet's Shirt Dress can be worn open as a light layering jacket or simply as an oversized dress. We include pockets where possible, and the Poet's Shirt Dress is no exception with lovely generous side pockets in true Metta Melbourne style.
*Khaki - Linen* Our Khaki linen styles are over-dyed in Melbourne. The colour is much darker than pictured on our model and is more similar to the sample photo provided. They're also very similar to our Sooty colour.
*Overdyes* Our over-dyed fabrics are batch dyed, we work closely with our local dyers to maintain consistency, though variations can be expected and often occur.
Eve and rose are 170cm in height, wear AU size 8 and Metta Melbourne O/S. Lotta is 180cm tall, an AU size 8 and is wearing the Sycamore Green (Sold out) S/M.

All measurements are taken in cm on a flat garment (please double for circumference). All garments are made by hand and may vary slightly.
We recommend looking at the garment’s measurements in relation to your body, and also in comparison to a similar style of clothing you own. This is a great way to understand the shape and size of a style.
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. If you would like to speed up this process, we recommend popping it in the washing machine, following the washing instructions found on your garments care label, and skipping any ironing.
