I decided to use the brown eyelet for the sport dress repro I have.
I haven't made this pattern yet so I had to do a mock up.
Some of the details I changed were the low cut back. I would love to wear it, but Im not the kind of gal who can go braless. Im going to cut the back as low as I can make it. I have to make a few alterations; take in the bust on the sides, add an inch to the front skirt at the middle seam, and lengthen the bodice about 1/2".
I want to make this in a golden yellow linen (looking something like the illustration I drew), but I have to find some linen that will do the job.
Im still not too sure how Im going to tackle the back. I might get rid of the fold all together. Im going to cut the fabric out later today. Hope it turns out good!
More to come!
