Contrasting colors

I really wanted to work with linen again, but all the pieces in my stash were too small it seemed. So the obvious solution of course was to combine them!

I used Burda 8754 which I’ve had for a long time, but never got around to use.

It worked out pretty well, the bust darts are a bit low for a change and I couldn’t really figure out how to hem the front pleats (no- sewing them together wasn’t the solution which I realized as I took the dress outside for photoshots:)

So today’s chore will be to re-hem the front. Don’t know if I can be bothered to move the darts, though.
