Ethically-Made Clothing

Encircled clothing is locally-made within 60km of our studio in Toronto, Canada at garment factories we vet for standards against our Ethical Code of Conduct checklist.

Local production in Canada means fair wages, safe working conditions, regulated time off, provincially funded health care and the right to unionize. Workers are protected by the Province of Ontario Employee Standards Act. We visit factories regularly, often weekly if not more frequenlty.

We prioritize working with local production on every component from labels, to zippers, to fabric due to the higher quality and standard of life offered to those who make the products locally in Canada.


Low impact dyes that are free of harmful chemicals, and tested to be safe for your skin and safe for the workers harvesting, knitting and dying the fabric.

A large portion of our fabric (approx. 50%) is knit and dyed locally in Ontario, reducing our carbon footprint significantly.

Every fabric contains naturally-derived fibres that meet the highest standards of environmental sustainability. Read more on the Fabric below for each style.

Where noted, our fabrics are certified yarns, which means that they're sustainably-sourced in a way that honours the planet in the process.



The Comfy Shirt Dress is fitted across the shoulders with a loose, drapey fit over the body and through the sleeves. Inspired by the Comfy Dress Shirt, this dress has the same V-neckline. For a roomier fit, we recommend sizing up. If you’re in between sizes, order the size that aligns with your bust measurement.

Dress Length: The Comfy Shirt Dress hits just below the knee. From waist to hem, the length is approximately 27.5”. From shoulder to hem, the length is approximately 40”-44” depending on size.

Fabric & Care


🍃 Made from Lenzing Modal® | Spandex.

This blend is a more structured and heavier weight version of the soft modal fabric we’re known for. Modal is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals.


Hand wash in cold water or machine wash on a cold gentle cycle in a mesh bag. No bleach. Lay flat to dry. Hanging to dry may distort the shape. Do not iron, lightly steam if needed. Do not dry clean.

Like a second skin

I've purchased some Encircled tops and the dressy leggings before and loved the fabric and comfort, but this was my first dress. Love, love, love it! I am 64'' and 127 pounds, and I purchased the XS Olive Gray. The fabric is wonderful, and the fit is flexible - I wore it with the belt and got plenty of complements at the office. Versatile, comfortable, and flattering. I'd love to see it in some other colors (Alpine Green perhaps???). The dress is a little bit pricey, but I appreciate the transparency as to where the costs are coming from (locally made, ethically made, ecologically sound, etc.).

Most comfy dress

It truly is a comfy shirt dress. Fits well in shoulders and flows in the waist and hips. The pockets are lovely and work well not to appear unflattering when used. The material is smooth as silk. I wear a large In The dressy leggings and fair leggings and a medium in the evolve top. I ordered this in a medium and am pleased with the sizing

Too long

Wanted to love this. The material is just glorious. But I am petite with a short torso, so the pockets fell well below my hips. I couldnt even think of how to get it tailored in a way that it would work. I would definitely buy in petite sizing!

High-quality, made here.

Effortless style, quality, comfort, ethics and (genuine) sustainability — we compromise nothing, so you don’t have to either. Proudly one of a handful of Women-owned certified B Corporations in Canada.
