the blue linen dress



Here it is, the second dress I made this summer. It's the easiest pattern ever, just two pieces sewn together. It's actually pattern d from this book (Sewing talk, again by Machiko Kayaki.. you can tell I'm a fan, right ?) but I made some tiny adjustments. The neckline was not very flattering so I cut it a bit lower. Only it turned out a bit loose so I had the idea of making the small gathering in front. It turned really nice this way. And I made the dress a bit longer than the original pattern, so it's just below knee length.



The fabric were actually two pieces of a linen mix I found on sale the other day. I love the color and the softness of the fabric, and for this dress it was quite the perfect thing. I'm addicted to making dresses now, which is kind of odd since I actually love dresses but don't get to wear them so often ... humm, maybe it's time to change that.

You look really good in dresses and you sew them well! Obrigado for sharing.

My husband and I spend 10 lovely lovely days in Portugal on our honeymoon - love your country and going through your pictures of Obidos brought back wonderful memories.

It´s beautiful - and it took you less time to start and finish yours than to me to finish the loose ends of mine :) Which I finally did and wore it, thank you for the help and pattern.

Love the dress, so simple but beautiful. You inspired me last week to purchase a few of these books, I can't wait to get them...hmmm, now I'm wondering now if this was one of them, I hope so.

hello! I am coming from the Japan addicted Blog where you recently posted.
First of all, your sewing is very well! the red dress is just gorgeous and suits you as perfect as possible. Then, I am so happy to speak little English with a Japan addict.
I hope to read you soon!

Hi Tania! I often click open (is that the correct terminology?) your blog to see what you've been up to recently and love your views and comments about Portugal and life in general. Your craft work is just great and very inspirational. I noticed today that you are reading Juile and Julia, what do you think of it? I read it earlier this year and I think it's a fantastic book, an honest view of a twenty/thirty somethings view of cookery. It's a book that sort of says "just get out there and give it a go - you may learn something along the way and actually enjoy it", a good mantra for life perhaps?! Keep on Blogging!!

Your sewing is so pretty! I love everything you have made from the M. Kayaki books. Her books are an addiction of mine...so nice to hear that this simple one turned out so well. Must try it next.

I have AVG on it, but whenever I go to piratebay, not even download just go to a link on there I get a butt ton of viruses and my computer won't allow me to run AVG, any program, or the internet because they are all corrupt. I spent 60 dollars to repair it last time and all they did was wipe my computer, how did they do this? Because I got a feeling it is free, or a lot cheaper then 60 dollars... Help will be greatly appreciated. I have an Hp laptop with intel duo. [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
