The darts are a little funky on this pattern. However, I do like the way that it ended up fitting. I found some cute flower looking buttons that matched really nice and added just a little extra without being over the top.
I also love using invisible zippers. They really aren't that much harder to put in than a regular zipper. The only thing is you will need a special invisible zipper foot for your machine. If you have the foot, then I suggest you give it a try.
I love the fabric of this dress. Years ago--and I do mean years, I bought a bunch of linen when it was on sale at one of my fabric stores for about $.50/yd. This denim look linen was one of those pieces. I pulled it out for this project and just love how it turned out. And thanks to Leslie's inspiration, I paired it with my favorite red sling backs.
