Yellow linen dress

Finally the dress is finished! I stuck with it for two years and I’m not sure I know the reason. Somehow it took away all my energy without sewing it.

I got this bright yellow linen fabric at the sale. If I can believe what was written, then it should be Armani linen. I have changed the pattern a lot. I have added volume to the neck part and added skirt part without waist seam. It turned out a little bit clumsy at the top but I love to wear the dress anyway. The dress is fully lined.




Garment Type
Linen, Polyester

      Thank you for such a lovely comment! I can agree that linen is something special. This piece of fabric is a little bit different from more natural ones because of the chemicals for color and for such thinness. But still it is a very nice textile to work with.

    2 years, never give up, that’s the spirit. I love it. So fresh and free looking. Well done. I hope I can find a yellow that suits me when summer comes as I would love a dress just like this.

      Yes 2 years it was waiting unfinished until I got interest on it again. Lack of muse or something. :)
