|This is a black 100% Linen dress with a whimsical Rouleaux embellishment at the upper bodice that extends slightly onto the back . I used Simplicity #3673 and modified the bodice for the Rouleaux technique along with moving the zipper to the side. The Rouleaux was made out of the same linen fabric cut on the bias to form the bodices embellishment. The shape of the embellishment was designed by myself and hand applied. The Rouleaux embellishment is balanced on all sides by the manipulated stripes so that the weight of the dress does not pull the Rouleaux or the dress out of shape. The remaining dress construction was done by machine.
Thank you for your consideration.
