Description

I shortened the sleeves and chose some bright colors to make this fall/winter pattern into a summer dress. I tested the fit a few times by making muslins. Since I am still a beginner sewist, fitting is far from my strong suit. I’m glad the dress came together in the end. I love Named Patterns. The dress is a dream to wear!

      Thanks! The fabrics come from blackbirdfabrics.com. The linen-viscose blend, which forms most of the dress, is so light and airy.
