I finally used my favorite linen I bought at Jospehne's Dry Goods last year. I planned to use a different pattern for it, but went back to this pattern I have made several dresses in (Simplicity 2615, out-of-print but these etsy sellers have it) because I know it well and thought the simple pattern would be the best choice for this print. I have kept all the scrap to use as trim on in other projects because the color variation is so fun to work it. I love this dress pattern, I can wear it loose when I want a chic sack, or belt it if I want some shape that day. On me, it looks best when it's a bit more fitted across the chest, otherwise it is way too big all around and the proportions aren't flattering.
When I sewed this is was warm here, but it's now just grey and not warm. But not cold either. A coat is too much but a cardigan not quite enough. I guess that's called spring in Portland.
I had linked to a video over at TED-Ed a bit back on you tube not realizing that they have their won site with videos and mini lessons for each one—with questions, discussion topics, and further learning links. We love it! What I also find thrilling is the quality of animation (Like this one, which is so well done) and the opportunity to write your own lesson lesson using their videos. Happy internet!
