Well, what could I say........ except that I LOVE this dress.
The pattern: Southport Dress by True Bias. I am a huge fan of Kelli from True Bias. I Love reading her blog and love her patterns. This dress does not disappoint!!!!!! I chose the maxi version of course. It's a perfect fit for my wardrobe.
I made this dress a while ago, right when the pattern was released. I followed the sew along as well which was really awesome. The hardest part for me was the button holes. I really try to avoid them at all costs ... Sigh ... but in the end I was not defeated!
The fabric is Italian linen. Stripes + Linen = LOVE
Ohhh and the slit in the front... that slit! Just the right amount of skin to show.
In this picture it almost looks like a jumpsuit. I have a feeling there might be a tutorial for this sometime soon. If it's not, well Kelli, can you please, please, please, get on it?!??! LOL!
