Make way for two new retro-inspired linen dresses!
The first is a different version (for myself) of the blue taffeta roses dress that I posted about earlier this spring. This time the fabric is a sunny yellow linen/rayon blend - with a crisp, lovely hand. It's trimmed in fabric roses of dusky pink and vibrant periwinkle blue.
For the second dress I actually used a vintage 70's pattern:
I really liked the way it turned out - and I am planning do to lots more versions of this pattern. For myself, I want to make a housedress in a bright mod calico.
You'll notice I did change the neckline just a bit.
This version in periwinkle blue irish linen, trimmed with natural linen.
(althougth it looks yellow next to the blue!)
I think this would look super cute with a pair of mary jane heels.
