Simple, Versatile Dress

So I know that I've been promising to share this dress for like two weeks now, and I bet you guys are expecting another excuse.Well you're not going to get one. :)

My hair is not done 'just so'. I'm not wearing the 'right' jewelry either, but I figured I'd made you guys wait long enough so here is the dress I wore to Dana's a couple of weeks ago.
Ignore the bags under the eyes. I've not had a good night's sleep in two nights.

The dress is a linen/poly blend. It wrinkles, but not as badly as 100% linen, but its light and airy. There are 8 pleats there in the front, which act in lieu of darts.
The pattern is super simple to follow, and unlike some v-neck patterns I've made, the facing on this one is not hard at all to put in or get right.
The sleeves are not tight on this dress and its very easy to move around in. Overall I really like the pattern.

I know a belt or something would help it out a little bit in the wow factor but as a foundation piece. It does the job. :)

So there's the dress. I am now going to take my tired, baggy eyes off for an afternoon nap. :)

see ya later!


  1. I have that pattern and I've made that dress, but I chose such a ghastly fabric that I never bothered to put in the zipper. Yours is lovely. Good incentive to try again.

  2. This is so cute! I need to learn how to sew. Your blog is fun! I am your newest follower. I would love it if you would check out my blog and become my newest follower! Oh, I also have a giveaway going on now too!

    Have a great day!
