    I love linen! But I fear that it is a fabric that many don’t love too much, which I think is rather sad. It wrinkles so beautifully!

      I know, I love the wrinkliness too! No ironing. :) And it becomes so soft with washing.

    Um hi there. You don’t know me, but when I was in the 7th grade I stumbled across your blog and you got me into sewing. My first dress I ever made was actually based from your Rose Garden Shift Dress…granted it looked horrible compared to yours, I didn’t even know how to sew a hem back then! But you got me into sewing dresses. So I just wanted to say hi and thank you! : )

      No it’s fine. :) I believe so it’s the one with the pink flowers and polka dots all over it. I do love it!! I’m actually hoping someday to become a fashion designer when I grow up. I will. :)
