Summer Sewing Challenge - Express Yourself in Linen

Nandi’s Green Dress

Front view of the dress.


I made this dress from scraps of fabric in my stock. The lighter green fabric is 100% linen and the slightly darker green fabric is 50/50 cotton/linen. I had a lot of modular pieces so I sewed them together, using some quilting type methods. For the bottom, I pleated the fabric to create a ruffle. I left a slit on the right side, and the fabric is also asymmetrical because of the scrap pieces of fabric I used. This is my own pattern. I basically just made it by draping fabric onto a dress form. The belt is my own (store bought).

    I love this dress, it makes me feel cool looking at it, a lime Popsicle feel, fun and cool........very flattering at the shoulders

    Great summer color and unique design. I especially like the use of fabric that you already had to create a new use for it.
    Love the neckline and halter-type top.
