I chose this beautiful Merchant & Mills Laundered Linen from Minerva with a maxi length Marcel dress in mind. I love the subtle hints of pink woven into the fabric (which is appropriately named “Hidden Pink”), and this is absolutely some of the softest linen that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. The closest I’ve felt is a linen / viscose mix, but this is 100% linen and 100% lovely. I know I shied away from linen for quite some time because I believed it was always a scratchy substrate, but you won’t find any of that here. The color is beautiful – a subtle, neutral color that offers hints of pink only to those near enough. The drape is beautiful, and it is a breezy fabric option that makes a maxi-length dress bearable and comfortable even on a 100F hot summer day at 37 weeks pregnant!
