The dress is finished. It has been quite a journey to make what is essentially quite a basic dress, which drove me insane at times but I am happy with it. I used a linen/silk blend from Tessuti which is beautiful to touch and easy to sew.
I used a pattern from Burda magazine 07/2008. After making a muslin I removed the front pleat and added some darts (as well as some to the back). I think I might make another one of these in a print to wear over a long sleeved shirt and leggings for winter.
My copy of Pretty Little Mini Quilts arrived this week. Such gorgeous little quilts
