Linen Wrap Dress with Pleats - Ultimate Member Model Challenge

Added Apr 3, 2015

Nedre Vats, Norway






This is a great dress for summer! I had this lovely linen with flowers in my stash and thought it would be nice for this pattern. The fabric was a bit transparent so I had to use micro satin for lining, but that makes it very soft to wear :)

Material Notes

Linen and micro satin for lining




Garment Type
Casual, Classic

      Thanks Stephanie! It has several details, but you will manage very well :) I had to line the dress, so it was a bit challenging.. It’s easier without lining..

    I started on this dress about a month ago and it’s still on my dressform, not entirely sure if I like it??? Your’s however, has turned out really pretty. I used a abstract stripe, I hope this doesn’t become UFO. Another great dress to add to the never ending collection. You will have to start your own label soon..

    The fabric is very lovely and so refreshing because small, bright – colored flowers on a white background are easy on the eye. I love the style of the dress as well. Wonderful choice and you wear it well. HAPPY EASTER !!!
