Okay, so if I don't have at least two projects going at once, I'll die! So sue me!
It has a really interesting construction: a linen underbodice that provides the structure to the garment, and a sheer nettlecloth (cloth actually spun out of nettles!) overdress with great pleats in back. I've always liked the dresses of the very late 18th century, so I'm really excited to start on this one. Plus I'll be able to put my newfound pattern drafting skills to work!
