Conclusion: I felt in love when I saw this pattern on the internet, as it not always you like the photo in front cover. This is a timeless shape (Sheath).I thought the price was a good investment with 4 cute variations.
Linen as it’s very breathable fabric makes me feel great and cool this summer. The disadvantage of using linen as it doesn’t wear very well. I don’t normally follow the pattern instruction and worked fine for this pattern, the only time I really had to refer to it was when I needed to sew the facing, and the instructions were clear. So I would recommend and say it’s a good pattern.
