A linen dress for summer

Those of you at the Sydney Sewers Social have already seen this. I made this dress specifically for the day and have worn it a few times since.

It’s a little creased in the pictures but the wrinkles drop out fairly quickly. I made a straight size 14, with no alterations. This isn’t my first vogue 8805, I made a ponti version last winter. The neck is a bit tight at the front, I didn’t have this problem in the ponti version, so if I make it again I will lower the front neck opening a centimeter or 2.

The pink linen was purchased from Tessuti in Melbourne last year, the others were in the stash a while.

A nice simple pattern for a quick casual dress.
