Inspiration...Summer Dress

I found this lovely little Eileen ensemble:

Although the slip dress is sold out, the original price was $238.00 and the lace cardigan price was $228.00.  The slip dress is a linen blend.

Here's a couple of slip dress patterns that would give you a similar look/feel:

This is the Colette Cinnamon dress pattern.  This is an OOP pattern from Colette.

Next is this pattern:

This is the Roundabout Dress & Slip pattern by Anna Maria Horner.  You get 3 other bonus patterns with this one.

Are you wondering about the cardigan?  It is fairly easy to create this type of a pattern using a t-shirt pattern.  You would need to lengthen the pattern to the desired length, maybe widen it to allow for seating room in the hip, use a French curve to correct the front, and do not cut the front on the fold.  There are also many patterns available for this type of top.

Happy Sewing!
