I love how easy it is to work with linen. I love how it drapes and I love how it feels. Just hate having to iron it!
I’ve learnt not to get too precious about ironing out all the creases. That’s just how it is supposed to be.
I found the instructions pretty easy. Only had to lengthen the bodice a little and I lined the skirt. I used a 20" zipper instead of an 18" but good job I did. The all-in-one facing instructions were really helpful though only in practice…. I couldn’t understand it on first reading but when I started to put it together it all made perfect sense.
Would definitely consider making this style of dress again. Perhaps with a different detail.
Raspberry tights and moss green dress are a good pairing methinks!
Dress fabric: Linen; lining: acetate; 20" invisible zipper; hook and eye; lightweight fusible facing.
