Simple dress, made a bit more interesting with embroidery

Dress is Butterick 6182, version B, but without the cuffs on the sleeves.  The embroidery is chain stitch and blanket stitch, done free hand, without stabilizer, on linen fabric.  Just drew three circles at center front and improvised from there.  Inspired by "Simple Stitches, Complex Design" in Threads 186. 


Pattern or design used: Butterick 6182
