Trick with this dress is the long silver zipper in the back.
I originally made this dress for the summer 2009 and it had short sleeves. However I hated the sleeves and didn’t wear the dress even once. The next spring I took out the sleeves and loved it! It became THE DRESS for the summer 2010.
The pattern is from an old issue of Finnish sewing magazine Suuri Käsityölehti.
Fabric is linen, the zipper is a flea market find.
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
