A Dark Blue Linen Dress for Clara


Finding linen at the fabric store is such a treat; I *will* buy it. Got this dark teal linen this summer and as soon as we got home from taking Clara to college I sewed it up for her and mailed it. You can take my baby away but you can't stop me sewing for her! Or whatever.

It's vintage McCall's 3643 and it's awesome because the bodice and sleeves are two pieces total, and some binding.

Looks like you made the neckline a little lower than the yellow twill one - it's just beautiful! The color suits her very well. Looking at the pattern cover, I realize I have to get over "believing" that it's going to be as full-skirted as those covers indicate. You've made so many that look very different from the covers, and look a lot nicer, too! I love it.

No, it isn't a lower neckline, is it? It definitely has a different look, though. I love it.
