  • Description

    The warm weather version of our favorite, essential tee. In a crinkly, rich linen gauze, this piece has so much life and floatiness. The Georgia is one of the first styles I designed, and the pattern was drafted with universal fit in mind. The shoulder seam and sleeve without an armscye look intentional on all shoulder breadths, the substantial cuff wings out and draws clean lines on any arm, and the cropped length follows the rule of thirds creating pleasing proportions that work on almost every body.

    I was thinking about effortless caftans from the '60s and '70s but with less material and more practicality in mind. I also drew on neat, crisp blouses from the '40s when women started wearing separates to work. The architectural drama and movement of a draped oversized top, paired with the structure and simplicity of a cropped blouse, and Voilá! - the Georgia Tee.

    Its boxy silhouette has a modern, utilitarian feeling while still remaining soft and fluid. The simple, slightly cropped, easy cut can be paired with just about anything. Plus, it looks great half tucked.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Linen Gauze

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: A gorgeous lightweight linen gauze that has a wonderful texture. The crinkled finish gives the fabric an inherent stretch. It's airy and floaty without being too sheer, hugging the body in slimmer styles and draping beautifully in others. It's lighter than our midweight linen but still strong and durable. It will only soften and improve with age, starting out with a coarser finish but with the ability to become more supple and flexible with wear. We love linen because of the natural strength and durability the fiber possesses, and because it is a very friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, extremely comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent. This yarn-dyed gauze possesses rustic charm and variation, giving it an organic personality.

    Care: Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry hot. Store folded or flat in order to avoid stretching. If stretching occurs, machine wash and dry to return to its original shape. The crinkled finish is intentional, so do not press. To remove fold creases or wrinkles, lightly steam or toss in the dryer with a damp towel. Avoid excessive stress on seams.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Intended to have a roomy, oversized fit. The cropped length hits at the natural waist. The same silhouette will fit differently in different fabrics - expect this to feel different than our Midweight Linen and Silk Crepe.

Pucker me timber ahoy

I like the Georgia tee in this fabric because it is more pliable like a conventional tshirt. As you can see it is a little puckered around the sleeves. I wear the heck out of my ES pieces and wash them and put them in the dryer no babying for my stuff. I think it looks fine this way.

New summer uniform!

There's something magical going on with this top. True, it was my first ES piece, but there's more to it than that. The cut combined with the linen gauze makes for the most wearable shirt in my entire wardrobe, hands down. I have worn it going out on the town, planting raspberry bushes, chasing toddlers, creek stomping, over a swimsuit on the beach, and just lounging around the house. I can't even tell you how many times I've worn it in the brief couple of months I've owned it.

Georgia tee

Altho I have purchased several ageorgia tees, this particular top’s shoulders are “ pointy”- I’m hoping they relax after several washes...

Love the Georgia Tee in Linen Gauze

I bought this tee in the OM size which was perfect - I liked it so much I bought it again but in a different color. Unfortunately I mistakenly bought the wrong size and I had to return it. I bought the top again in the right size and I can’t wait to get it. I love the fabric which is heavier than regular linen and is not see thru. It’s a great style which washed up perfectly and only needed a little ironing on the bottom of the sleeves. I wish they made more styles in this fabric that look good on petite people.

Georgia Tee in Linen Gauze

Perfect light fabric weight for warmer weather. I would like it just a little bit longer. Really like how it lays while wearing.

Casual Elegance

I love the casual elegance of this top. It is dressy enough for me to wear at work but still easy and breezy enough to wear while braving the heat and humidity outdoors (I live in a tropical climate).

I think I’d prefer the drape if the Georgia in silk crepe for a more polished look. In terms of fit, I’m 5’2, 36DD bust, 29 inch waist and the OSM fit me perfectly. I think so think this top would be quite cropped on someone taller.

Favorite Shirt

Favorite new shirt ever. I would wear it every day if I could. I'm usually a small or x-small in tops. I got this in the OS and OSM. The OS was way too big, and the OSM fit well (it's supposed to be loose).

Lovely fabric

This is a beautiful fabric, and I am so happy that I purchased this in the smoke grey color before it was discontinued. I like this Georgia better than the one that I have in the midweight linen because it is breezier and not as stiff. The only reason that I deduct one star is that it is considerably shorter/more cropped than I was expecting (and compared to the midweight version) - so much so that it won't stay tucked into even my high-waisted bottoms.
