Description

I bought this fabric for a pair of culottes. But the culottes did not require stretch fabric so I gave this pattern a try instead. This pattern did suggest a stretch fabric, but I don’t find the extra ease a necessity. Hmm.. Maybe I will make another in non stretch fabric and something more colorful. For the faux patch pockets I used the wrong side of same linen. I like this dress as it gives a businesslike no nonsense look.

Material Notes

Linen with 20% stretch.

    Very smart indeed – I made something quite similar recently, actually! It’s in indigo linen and I also added faux flap pockets to the design. But I did copy a dress I saw in a shop! :)
