Red/Black Linen Sheath Dress
I developed the pattern for this dress using PatternMaster Boutique, using the "double princess sheath" style, and then modified the pattern for better fit, using the CAD program (Pattern Editor) included with PMB. The linen fabric is underlined with silk organza to minimize wrinkling, and the dress is fully lined with Bemberg.
