I found this red linen fabric and loved it, so I bought it. Then I was looking for an appropriate pattern and found a Butterick pattern: Lifestyle Wardrobe B5428. Somehow I am not too convinced about those patterns, concerning the correct fit. I chose the pattern according to the measurements indicated and wanted to finish the dress (my fault). At the end I think the dress is to “roomy”, but it looks good and is comfortable to wear and I got a few compliments.
