Linen dress made using maternity pattern #127. Although the pattern suggests using a stretch fabric or wool crepe I opted to try linen since this was for Easter. Modifications made include lengthening the sleeves, changing the neckline (since there was no stretch I felt like I was choking), and I eliminated the zipper and used snaps under the decorative stitching. I also added a sewn down pleat on each side to tailor the look a bit.
