Soma Shirt Dress
Thank you! If this style comes back in stock we will let you know.
The Soma Shirt Dress is a classic Elk piece with a relaxed, versatile edge that can be styled numerous ways throughout the year. The silhouette has a kaftan-like shape, with wide cuffs that can button up, a lightweight crinkle finish fabric and a slight batwing sleeve to add to the laidback fit. Wear it as a dress with a slip, as a shirt open over pants or jeans, or tied in at the waist with a belt for a neater look. The print is a yardage print so will vary slightly from garment to garment making each one unique.

- Natural Corozo nut buttons
- Batwing sleeve
- Wear as a dress or shirt jacket style
- Crinkle finish fabric
- Olive Virla Print is a yardage print, print placement will vary from piece to piece (each piece is unique)
70% ECOVERO™ Viscose 30% Viscose Rayon
Lightweight and breathable, this fabric features fine crinkle texture while remaining soft to the touch and is well suited to trans-seasonal wear. It is a great fabric with a lovely hand feel and nice, fluid movement.
Viscose has a beautiful drape, a smooth feel and a breathability that is perfect in summer or worn under layers in winter.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fibres are derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certified and controlled sources. LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres have been certified with the EU Ecolabel for textile products (license no.

The manufacturing of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded viscose fibres generates up to 50% lower emissions and water impact compared to generic viscose.
