Hello. I spent a good deal of this weekend making this new blue linen dress. The ribbon was not part of the pattern, I just thought it added something sweet. I love how this dress with the ribbon shows off my waist!

With the ribbon:




Without the ribbon:


This last picture shows the color of the dress better than the others. In real life, it is somewhere between teal and royal blue.


I still need to add the hook and eye and hem it, but I can't wait to get it done and wear it!

Oh, and the pattern was easy to work with. It was my first endeavor at princess seams, and I don't know how I ever got by without them!

That dress looks great, and great on you! Love the ribbon, or even a cute belt--you definitely want to show off that waist!  Grin
