More Dresses

Purple linen 

I liked this dress because of the unusual cut of the skirt,   of the sectioned skirt.   It was a bit of a fiddle to make  the section seams of the skirt seemed to groooow.   As it does not have facings,   the seam allowance  around the neck are  folded over and top stitched down.  The sleeves are finished with 'liberty ' biased bindings.  I think there will be only one these dresses.  Not that keen on really long dresses.

  I have styled it with a Mela Purdie wrap rayon top and these 'funkis'  wooden sandals.  

The pattern is from  Burda Magazine 5/2007 issue so it is about five years old.
