Made from a 1950’s pattern, Butterick 9029, this dress has kimono sleeves and a built in sash that can be tied at least four different ways (according to Butterick, anyway). The fabric is a large loose weave grey linen. I added a grey acetate lining.

    This looks great! And although quite loose fit, it looks very elegant and nicely fitted! Great work!
