Description

I think that you can never have enough dresses for summer, so I made this one. I call it “milk chocolate dress” because it has absolutely the same colour as my favorite sort of chocolate :-)
I used the “prooved” pattern from my violet silk dress, which I like very much but cannot wear very often, so I almost didn’t need any fitting at all. Only the fabric wasn’t so nice to work with, always distorting and stretching (hence the quite ugly hem)… didn’t expect this with a linen/cotton blend! But nevertheless it is very comfortable to wear.

Material Notes

Blend of linen and cotton, with a woven flower structure.

    The dress is very nice! It’s the kind of dress you can wear home, out, at work, and you can combine it with different things!

    It looks very good, and the background too. I envy you for that view.

      Thank you! The view is not perfect, though, if you go just one step to the left, you can see the other houses across the street (but it’s still a very nice view).

    Lovely! Sorry that you had to fight with the fabric, but it turned out well. Looks like a good fit.
