I was not the only one pleased with my linen dress. Here is one happy friend:

I love the fit, the accessories, and the smile.

I am pleased with my finished McCall’s M6534 dress!

Pleased with the elasticized neckline.

Pleased with the cap sleeves.

Pleased with the exactness of the darts.

Pleased with the hook and eye atop the zipper.

And pleased to be sending the finished dress to a good friend in Richmond, as it was a little snug for me.

By far, my best dress to date!

After a modified attempt, I am following McCall’s M6534 to a T.

This time around, I have a better understanding of the pattern and was excited to see the little sleeves take shape.

All that’s left to do is sew in the zipper and hem the dress.

Hopefully I will have it finished in time for church on Sunday!

Last summer, I made a flop of a dress with beautiful green linen.

The top was the main flop, so I cut it off and now have a wrap skirt.

Perfect for the warm days of spring.

I had high hopes of making my own dress to wear to an outdoor wedding this summer. The dress was to be green, linen and strapless.

The big side bow turned out nicely.

As did the pleating in the back.

There were some imperfections along the way.

The largest of which was the top, it was too big. And even with boning, I could not get it to lay correctly against my body.

Good thing I packed a backup dress!

I like matching with my boyfriend:

clb made dress and matching belt!

clb made dress and coordinating (but store-bought) shirt.

Linen is not the appropriate five year anniversary gift.

But once I found that out, it was too late to make wooden napkins.

The perfect dresses for singing along to my country favorites!

Cool, breezy, and lawn ready!

My favorite 5 month old will be baptized this Sunday.

And I will be wearing this skirt:

And enjoying Chick-fil-A, on a Sunday!
