After actually placing the order, my fabric did come this week. I eagerly sewed my kcw dress #3 a week late - a simple A line dress for Indigo.
I used a linen-cotton blend from Anna Maria Horner's field study line. I wasn't so sure about the larger scale of the linen prints at first, but they grew on me... and fast. Now I love it! The weave of the linen itself is so beautiful. The texture is stunning. It has a great drape and wrinkles less than you'd expect of linen.
I used this pattern again (here, too!). It's so simple, which I believe works well with this bold print.
I finished it with some blue bias binding and a matching fabric covered button.
The whole dress sewed up in about an hour. You can't argue with that!
