Simplicity 2975

Made with a gorgeous linen in one of my favorite colors. I added pockets on the side seams instead of the front patch pockets it called for. Sorry there are no closeups.
I love this tree. It hangs over a pond in the gardens by the theatre district. You know who thinks I am a huge goof for wanting a photo of myself here. I thought I could walk out farther..... the water is shallow and very not clean. Yeah, he also had to help me down.

Hope you've had a great weekend!

Simple and yet beautiful ;) I love linen and almost every piece of linen I've owned it has always been very simple and comfy to wear.

Cute, but we will need a close up!

Lovely! But I want to see close ups, too.

Also, where exactly were you? I must visit this place!

I love the dress! It looks so great on you! Ok, that tree is so funny! I know with my head it's that big, but it makes you look like a fairy! Or Alice in Wonderland when she's tiny! Haha!

I love it! But I just love linen. I made a similar top using Simplicity 3799. I like the wider collar on your pattern, and now I am definitely going to make another one using linen. I love linen!

You know I love the color. Love the dress. Love the picture. As a former tree climber (many many years ago) that tree looks so fun, glad you got to 'embrace' it.....
