I really have been wanting to do something feminine for a while. I love linen (even though it does wrinkle) and love clothing that's made with linen. So, a dress it was. I spent a lot of time on this design and pattern construction keeping the woman's best features in mind. There's nothing more beautiful than a bare back in the summer and a hint of cleavage never hurt either. It's made of 100% linen and lined with cotton - skirt only. I cut it completely on the bias so that the dress will fall to flatter the figure. Invisible zipper in center back.
