Added Aug 19, 2012
I used Burda Style pattern 7/2012 but omitted the pockets and bow trim.
Instead of canvas and cotton twill, I used a wool blend checked fabric for the main body of the dress and a citrine linen fabric for the hem.
A jewelled trim was added around the neckline as an ideal contrast to the wool checked fabric and to pick up the citrine colour of the hem.
I used a checked wool-blend fabric and 100% pure linen for the hem. A jewelled trim was used to decorate the neckline.
