My second attempt, however, was successful. The key was to pick a gorgeous fabric with a big print – the kind of fabric which just screams from a minimalist approach. I had this Anna Maria Horner linen in my stash for about a year. When I saw Olga’s beautiful Ghost Wing dress a few weeks ago, my desire to use it finally won from my fear of putting my scissors into this stunning cloth.
With Ava asleep exceptionally early (half past 8! Woohoow!) and Mr. StraightGrain off to play soccer a few nights ago, I had some hours of guilt-free sewing to spend. Before I knew it, the dress was finished (kudos to the inventor of the invisible zip!), and my mission to create a quick and uninspired garment finally accomplished.
So, there’s actually nothing interesting to say about this dress. The fabric is amazing. The End.
