Linen shift

I just love the feel and quality of this shift. It
Fits perfectly to the size chart. The workmanship is superb and I am a picky seamstress . I have always loved any items from Townsends !

Beautiful night Linen dress

My husband gifted this dress and it's the most comfortable night gown. Wash as soon as you receive it for softness.

Well made night gown! I'm also 5'3 and dress doesn't go to the floor.
