Teal Linen Fitted Dress

So I was all excited to finally have a picture to add to one of my dress posts, and I came to add the photo and realized I never added any information about this dress!  So this is a teal fitted dress in the same style as the other gowns I’ve posted.  See those posts, and these two websites for more details on gown construction:

So this dress is made from teal linen with eyelets in DMC cotton.  You can see a little of the white linen chemise at the neckline.  I love this dress.  It is soft and comfy and great for hot weather.  And I sincerely thank Albreda Aylese for capturing this photo while I was teaching.
