A beautiful spring/summer basic.
If you want to line linen, Bemberg rayon is the ideal choice as it is smooth and breathes. Consider underlining to minimize wrinkling in a more fitted dress. Or, line only the sleeves and upper back in a linen jacket so it slides on more easily.
Pre treat by hand laundering or machine wash gentle and air dry. You can toss linen in the dryer if you want all over wrinkles, but always pre test a sample, some fabrics respond well, others not so well. Test Test Test. After laundering hand wash or machine launder gentle and air dry. I like to take my linens out of the laundry while still very wet, hang on a hanger and pull and smooth the seams and hems, allowing the weight of the water to do the work, then touch up with an iron or not.
