Recently, I went looking for a linen shirt or blouse. I had a white linen shirt decades ago and wore it so much it frayed and tore. It was incredibly useful and it’s time to find a replacement. I started off in TK Maxx with a navy collarless style, it wasn’t linen – rayon – but it had the same kind of floppiness I like. Huge.This is linen and felt very lovely, however, it was a size too big and the front panel was so badly sewn I couldn’t overlook it!Shame. Next I found myself in Marks and Spencer and if you know my stance on them, you’d be surprised! Anyway, I was in the men’s department first and picked up a linen shirt in the XP size but it’s still too big. Really too big. This is their women’s blouse that has shaped sides. It was the only style they had in white available in that particular branch. It’s the best so far but I fear it may be too short on average height ladies? I tried the shirt version but the stripes would be too limiting for me.Shame they didn’t have a plain white version. And this is how I started off. Thanks for reading!
