Description

I used Burdastyle’s 08/2017 Dress #120 pattern for the dress. (I’ll post more about my floral Easter Burdastyle coat later.)

It’s a really cute dress pattern, but I suggest that you don’t use linen. The linen doesn’t work well for all the seams and pleats. (The bodice pleats look bad with wrinkly linen.)
I knew the linen wasn’t a good choice when I began cutting. But I had no choice since I already finished the embroidery on blush linen.

I took photos after my 3 hour Easter service, so the dress is a bit wrinkled.
(However I don’t mind wrinkles, since I much prefer a natural textile than a wrinkle-free manmade textile.)

I’ll post more about the dress on my blog later this week. www.marusyamarusya.com

    The way you used the embroidery is adorable. The wrinkles just say about natural origin of the fabric so don’t worry :-)

    Beautiful dress, love the linen “un-fussy” look and the embroidery.

    I think it looks great. Not crisp straight lines and such but there’s something that feels good about the linen look regardless :)
