Sparkly Linen Dress

New Look 6774 Linen Dress

This is an example of one of those sewing projects that stays in the closet unworn for one reason or another.

The last time (and only time) I wore this dress was at my friend's bachelorette party over two years ago.

The dress is made with a New Look pattern that I really like, the problem was the wrong fabric. I chose a linen blend with a metalic sheen but it is much too stiff for this dress.

One of those rookie mistakes that I've learned from. Wrong fabric and picking the wrong size were probably my biggest mistakes I made early on. Did you make any mistakes that you had to learn from when you first started sewing?

I still like the style and I'd like to try making the pattern again - maybe in the maxi dress version?
