Silver linen shift dress

I made this shift dress using an amazing linen with tiny silver lurex threads running through it. It had an amazing subtle shine, and I just love these scooped pockets and faux-princess-seam back darts! See way more here:

Material Notes

53% linen 44% rayon 3% lurex from Hickeys in Dublin

    aww, thanks everyone! And Mirela, I wish I could take credit for the gardens, but those are the floating garden barges on my moorings. We walk on those paths to get to our boats, but they’re big open-plan flats underneath, too. :)

    Love it. Even though Linen is a summery fabric, this really captures Fall 2008… minimalist & waist curves. Great job!
