Description

This is from a pattern book.
I loved the pattern,it reminds me of old foreign nightdress.
(But the one I made loos like operation gown ^^;)
I also love the linen fabric embroidered flowers.
It was an outlet price at sewing factory sale.
A sales person said it’s from a country somewhere in asia.
I knew a technique called “triangle gusset”(is it correct word?)
of sleeve for the first time on this nightderss.
The more I knew about garment construction,it’s quite intresting.
It’s my dream to wear it this coming warm season.
It must be comfortable because of linen.

      Thank you : ) I like the sleeves too. I feel it also looks like a traditonal folk dress somewhere in eastern europe.
