"I had so much trouble finding plus sized dresses that both fit and flattered my figure until I started sewing my own. Linen is now my go-to all year round. This is a Vintage Vogue pattern, can't go wrong with a circle skirt, and the linen has great drape!"

Thanks Deb! I mostly machine sewed it, but the black 'harness' part had to be attached to the bodice via hand sewing :-) I've been meaning to embroider it by hand, but couldn't get around to it before contest-time.

Perfect summer fun dress and with a jacket or lace shawl you can wear it on cooler days.
