Long dress with deep-V neck & self-from flaps. Drop waist was altered & meets at my waist. Sleeveless with gathered patch pockets and balloon hem. This garment was constructed wtih blue linen (true content unknown) with patterned weave of thick & thin threads.
I used a large print cotton for this classic shirt in an updated longer length. I've been wanting to make something like this ever since I saw an Amy Butler pattern of a similar ilk. I would have like to use Amy B.'s fabric, but my stash is made up of cheaper stuff.
I used a stretch fabric that featured blue flowers on a white background. Early in the construction process, it became apparent that the fabic was not working the way it should. Still it had potential & I ended up taking the project way off the designer's intented design. Still, I think it'll get lots of wear.
