MonoSewn: Casual LBD

Without further ado, here’s my Malvarosa dress, a pattern by Pauline Alice that caught my eye during Indie Pattern Month.  I used a soft but durable linen-cotton blend from a local shop in Berlin and made the sleeves short; otherwise no changes to the pattern.

This dress has been excellent for traveling.  I wore it on the long journey by too many planes and shuttles to northeast Ohio, where I’m visiting my parents.  I didn’t pack much, so I’ve been wearing it often in a wide variety of summer weather conditions.  It’s always comfortable.

Usually I don’t wear black without other prints or colors, but the ease and simplicity of the monochrome look are working for me with this dress.  I like it!
