Leinenkleid_01_large

Description

linen dress from the june issue. Now that it is finished, I am not so sure anymore about the colour combination. In the fabric shop the two different brown tones seemed to go together much better. I am wondering if it is anything to do with me washing the linen before sewing ?
still, the dress itself is quite nice. And this was my first attempt at button holes, so I am quite proud how they turned out :-))
I imagine it would be good in a jeans material with something flowery at the bottom maybe?
