I liked the wrap dress pattern that I drafted so much that I have decided to make a second one! This is another fabric stash use-up, as I’m using one yard of very wide (50-60″) sage green linen that I already own. Its weave is too loose to repurpose for things for the community. There is not enough of the fabric for this dress to have sleeves. You can just see the part of the bottom hem that I had to piece together. Hopefully, it’ll be disguised in the hemming stage. You can also see that I’m going to change the angle of the shoulders slightly, as the pattern I drafted myself continues to be a learning process.
Linen is a wonderful, ancient fiber and while it can sometimes be challenging to work with, I love the breatheability and the feel of it on my skin. I have hopes that this will be a rewarding project!
