We are so excited to introduce Helen Bullock + The Sleep Shirt, a capsule collection of loungewear with a print designed by London-based illustrator and print designer, Helen Bullock. Both alumni of the prestigious fashion program at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, Helen and The Sleep Shirt founder Alexandra have been friends for over a decade. Helen’s bold illustrations and prints inspired Alexandra to approach her about a collaboration. The result is a bold, colourful hand-painted stripe available in four shapes. Shop the entire Helen Bullock + The Sleep Shirt collection.

This is our famous nightshirt - the one customers have been buying ever since The Sleep Shirt was founded in 2012. You'll find our customers wearing the Short Sleep Shirt to bed, when they're lounging, as a day shirt, or even on the beach. Is this the perfect oversized shirt? We think so. Helen chose a pattern of blues, reds, pinks, and yellows for this limited edition stripe print. It's printed onto a crisp linen and cotton blend shirting.

    We know that a picture doesn’t tell the story of a fabric, so we have created this guide to give you more detailed information about our fabrics.

    We describe our fabrics with three criteria:

    • Weight: This is based on the weight of the fabric in grams per metre
    • Opacity: The opacity determines how sheer the fabric is
    • Feel: This helps you to understand how the fabric feels when you touch it or hold it. Fabrics can have more than one description of how it feels.

    Each product description on our website includes some details about the fabric, in the bullet points. Use the descriptions below to understand what those details mean.

     

    THE WEIGHT  

    Medium: Our medium weight fabrics are substantial and weighty. Imagine a button-down shirt made with heavy cotton shirting, or the material from a lightweight pair of cotton trousers. We don’t like to use the word heavy, as our medium weight fabrics are way lighter than denim or coat fabrics, but these are our heaviest fabrics.  Medium weight fabrics are 130 - 170 g/sqm. Our Short Sleep Shirt in Blue Oxford Stripe and our Lounge Pant in Pink Carnaby Plaid are items made from a medium weight fabric.

    Medium Light: Our medium light fabrics are slightly weighty but not as substantial as the medium weight materials. Imagine a light tablecloth or a good quality flat sheet for your bed. Medium light weight fabrics are 115 - 130 g/sqm. Our Full Length Sleep Shirt in White Seersucker and our Ankle Length Sleep Shirt in Navy & Pink Check are items made from a medium light weight fabrics.

    Light: Our light fabrics are just that: light. Imagine a very lightweight button down shirt or a floaty sundress. Lightweight fabrics are 100 - 115 g/sqm. Our Short Sleep Shirt in Navy Pinstripe and our Sleeveless Nightie in Blue Saturn Dot are items made from a lightweight fabrics.

    Super Light: Our super light fabrics are very lightweight. Feather light, they are floaty and usually sheer. Imagine a the most delicate blouse fabric, these materials are often fine-spun, delicate, diaphanous. Super light weight fabrics are 60-100 g/sqm. Our Long Flounce Sleeve Dress in Milano Featherweight and our Short Sleep Shirt in White Swiss Dot are items made from super light fabrics.


    THE OPACITY

    Opaque: Our opaque cottons are not at all sheer. If you were wearing black underwear underneath a light coloured nightshirt in an opaque fabric, no one would see it at all. Perfect for wearing at breakfast when you have houseguests or you are visiting your in-laws. You can even wear this down to the hotel breakfast. Our Blue Oxford Stripe fabric falls under this category. Our Slip On Sleep Shirt in Pink Oxford Stripe and our Button Down Sleep Shirt in Grey Flannel are items made from opaque fabrics.

    Semi Opaque: Our semi-opaque fabrics are slightly sheer. If you were wearing black underwear underneath a light coloured nightshirt in a semi-opaque fabric, your underwear would be slightly visible in bright light but the details would not. Depending on the colour of this fabric, you may want to put a robe over it at breakfast. Our Short Sleep Cropped Sleep Shirt in White Linen and our Long Sleep Shirt White Double Gauze are items made from semi-opaque fabrics.

    Sheer: Our sheer fabrics are the most transparent ones in our collection. If you were wearing black underwear underneath a sheer fabric, your underwear would be visible. We don’t recommend this material in front of in-laws or family, unless you are wearing a robe or a cardigan over top. We definitely do not recommend wearing a sheer nightshirt down to the hotel breakfast or at the table with your in-laws, but it looks great over a swimsuit on the beach. Our Dropped Shoulder Sleep Shirt in Milano Featherweight Blend and our Short Sleep Shirt in White Swiss Dot are items made from sheer fabrics.

     

    THE FEEL

    Soft: A soft fabric will be soft to the touch but will also have a drapey hand, meaning it is not at all stiff and hangs beautifully. Our Sleeveless Nightie in White Royal Oxford and our Flared Ruffle Nightie in Textured Lilac are made from soft fabrics. 

    Super soft: Our softest fabrics are labelled as super soft, meaning they have a very soft hand and feel lovely. Our Short Sleep Shirt in Dove Grey Stripe and our Long Sleep Shirt in Musk Double Gauze are items made from super soft fabrics.

    Brushed: Brushed fabrics are woven materials that have gone through a process where the material is brushed and therefore softened on one (or both) sides. Very soft and usually a bit fluffy, like a classic flannel. These fabrics are usually warm. Our Short Sleeve Cropped Sleep Shirt in Pink Carnaby Plaid and our Sleeveless Nightie in Grey Flannel are items made from brushed fabrics.

    Smooth: A smooth fabric will have a flat, silky surface. Smooth would be how we describe a typical man’s dress shirt fabric. Our Full Length Sleep Shirt in Grey Point Cotton is made from a smooth fabric.

    Crisp: A crisp fabric will have a slightly crunchy feel when you scrunch it in your hands. It holds its shape well. Most of our crisp fabrics don’t stay crisp for long, they almost all soften after a few weeks of wash and wear. Our Flared Sleep Shirt in Blue Oxford Stripe and our Pocket Nightie in Blue Saturn Dot are items made from crisp fabrics.

    Loose weave: A loose weave fabric has space between the yarns, which gives the impression of lightness. Loose weave fabrics are usually linens or gauzy cottons. Our Short Sleep Shirt in White Double Gauze and our Sleeveless Nightie in Navy & Pink Check are items made from loose weave fabrics

    Textured: A textured fabric has a texture in the weave or is woven from a textured yarn. This could be a seersucker or a raised stripe; expect texture when you run your hand across the material. Our Short Sleep Shirt in White Seersucker and our Flared Nightie in Black Linen are items made from textured fabrics.
