it's not that bad, but the linen is cheap ($4!) and unimpressive. i've worn it several times and like it enough - in my twisted mind the cheap, faded-out linen has become "vintage-looking."
- don't buy cheap linen.
- as soon as i cut it, i realized the length is too short for me as a dress. i had elaborate plans to make a gathered muslin slip with a raw hem to go under it but, eh, the dress isn't worth it. hence the leggings.
- i need to do a better job trimming threads when i'm making french seams.
- the collar is a hot mess but since the dress, again, was "eh" i didn't worry too much.
- i tried pockets, toiled over them a bit, made them work, then took them out because they just made me had demented hips. if i make this again with a more structured fabric i might put the pockets in.
i love wearing two things i've made all at once.
