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.
