Lonsdale dress in linen

—by Hannah

We have a new dress hanging in the window. It’s perfect for summer and very feminine. The pockets tell me that I will make several. I loved sewing this dress and have no complaints. The fit was perfect for me which is rare. Sewaholic patterns are written very well with clear and concise directions accompanied by very well done illustrations. If you ever have trouble with Sewaholic patterns, have a look at Tasia’s sewalongs. She does a series of sewalongs for each of her patterns which are very helpful if you ever feel stuck.

Heather suggested I sew this dress in a cross woven linen and it was indeed the perfect suggestion! This is the perfect summer dress to show off your shoulders and get some sun on your back. Also I think it would be so beautiful for bridesmaids and could be a dress that they would surely wear again.
