Hi folks! I made a Joliene and didn't like how it looked on me, nothing wrong with the dress, just think it does me absolutely NO favours (not to mention the colour also is not good next to my face, too pale).
I decided to make it into a skirt instead and now I love it!
The linen I used is from LINENGRAPHY on etsy and is 190gsm and the colour is 'dogwood'.
Before (i never finished the neckline or armholes as I wasn't sure about it)
Then after - wearing it with my Etra top (changed neckline) but I think it's going to look even better under black or dark grey. I have recently bought some lovely 'truffle grey' linen...
Truffle grey linen I've got waiting to become a lovely dress! it's slightly darker than this in the flesh. It's a warm rather than cool grey.
