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