Linen Dress with Pleats!
This is a Great dress for summer ☼
I love to wear linen when the weather is nice and warm.
It's delicious even though it can wrinkle.
I read in an article regarding linen to avoide the fabric to wrinkle, then you should:
1. Before washing DRY iron linen on highest setting possible.
2. Wash fabric with detergent in hottest water.
3. Dry in high heat dryer until almost dry.
4. Press again.
I have not tried it yet, but I surtenly will try it once to see if it's useful.
The patten I chose has pleated neck at the front.
I have cut out the inserts and the belt-tunel for the waist.
The inserts is iron with vliseline at first and overlocked at the bottom edge.
I have stitched very closely to the edge, both around the neck and around the armholes.
