Description

Euro size 36-46 / US 10-20 A/B Semi-Fitted

I chose to use various colors of linen (pink and yellow) and a linen-blend (black)
Originally I purchased the fabric for a color-contrast ‘block-style’ pattern, but I never did find exactly what I had in my mind. I went with this pattern instead since I had it in my stock pile of patterns and fabric.

Material Notes

I found the instructions to be adequate even for an advanced beginner. The only hiccup I had was near the end when sewing the armhole facings. Instructions weren’t as clear there as I needed. Since there is a side zipper, one of the armhole facings is a bit more involved.
I made the dress in size 38/12 – the finished dress is a half size or more too large..
My Height 165, B34-W27-H34
Dress b36-w32-h38 – actual finished measurements

The pattern cover images are of solid color dresses and this I guess is the ideal. Possibly my dress is a bit too colorful for the timid! I will wear it while on holiday in Russia this summer.
