Lessons Learned: I love a statement sleeve, but a big sleeve paired with a wide open neckline isn’t for me. I feel like my proportions are out of balance and I’m extra top heavy. It’s no fault of the pattern or my sewing/fitting skills. It’s just not my favorite shape on me.

Next Steps: This dress is becoming a pair of shorts! I’m really excited because I’m totally in love with this khaki linen! It’s going to match all my summer tops!
