Cranberry and Cream Linen Dress

I have to say that hubby told me this is his favorite. I really like it too. It is Simplicity 2927. I also had this fabric in my stash. Just had to go buy some really cool looking buttons. I did raise the keyhole, but not quite enough for my comfort zone. I am trying to figure out how to adjust it so that I am more comfortable wearing it. I am out of this cranberry linen and so I couldn't recut the front piece, etc.

The sleeves are this tulip shape, lined, and a bit different to work with. I like how they look. I wasn't thrilled putting them together. I couldn't quite visualize how to construct them in a different way and get the same look. I may have to try something different if I make this pattern again.


  1. love the buttons. I like it better than the pattern looked.

  2. Yea, I think this one is my favorite, too. Very good color choices! I don't think the keyhole is too low. It looks nice!

  3. Yep, my fave too! Very classy & sassy...
