I am a mature aged student at university studying nutritional medicine and I have been waiting for weeks to finish assignments and exams to make this dress before I decide to cut into a beautiful piece of silk and repeat the same pattern. Although I have only used very average quality linen which I preshrunk, I am very happy with this style and fit. It crushes easily but it will be a lovely cool dress to wear in our hot and humid summer. I am now about to sew the 2nd version for Christmas.
This is not a difficult dress to make, but the neckline does need attention and care. Burda Style magazine 6/2011 #102
