SALE - Franklin Baby Soft Gingham Shirt - Navy
The Franklin Baby Soft Gingham Shirt, designed to look like you pinched it from his wardrobe, but we've tailored it to fit you. It’s the cotton shirt every woman needs in her wardrobe. A classic, casual shirt you can easily dress up or dress down.
We’ve used a lightweight brushed 100% cotton gingham for this update which will take you right into the spring season. This baby is super soft and drapey, very different to our classic Gingham Poplin. This one has somewhat of a linen hand-feel to it.
Just enough length in the back to make it flattering and comfortable (this is basically a fashion miracle if we do say so ourselves). And it's ideal for the half-tuck — which we love – or tied into a knot.
All our shirts are pre-washed. This extra step means you don’t have to worry about shrinkage. You can iron it—but a wrinkled Franklin looks even better. Wash in cold water and hang to dry. You’re good to go.

I was very excited to receive my pink and navy gingham shirt, however, on trying it on I found it to be a little too large particularly in the sleeve length. Prior to ordering online I found a retailer stocking Irving and Powell and was able to try a shirt on. I was extremely keen to purchase it as it was a size x-small. Fortunately I tried it on as it proved to be too short in the sleeve hence my decision to order a small online. My homework backfired!
Apart from that I love the idea of your shirts. Looking forward to a more successful purchase soon.
I was very pleased to find this shirt however I'm disappointed to see that the fabric is pilling, and I wonder if it is not pure cotton to be behaving this way. I've worn it 4 times. The pilling is on contact areas, across the bodice and along side seams under arms. I make most of my clothes so know fabrics well. It's the navy thread that's the culprit. On a design note, I wonder if you might consider shortening the sleeve length. I have 3 of your shirts and find the sleeve length unusually long. I'm average female height, slim build. I hope you find my feedback to be constructive.
