Linen Second Skin
Added Jan 19, 2014
This pattern was in the Fall 2011 edition of Ottobre (a Finnish magazine). The same bodice was tweaked into different dresses. I love the classic darts. I chose the version with deep V neckline and a round plunging back. I used a beautiful linnen from my Grandma’s closet. The result is a great classy and verstile dress.
What did I change ? Ottobre has this pattern up to a size 48 so I had to upgrade it slightly. I also shortened the sleeves and cut them in a scallop shape. Also, instead of gathering the fabric at the waistline, I tucked it into simple pleats.
