Pineapple Adeline Dress

StyleArc Adeline Linen 2

This was my first StyleArcAdeline, in a lovely black linen with a not-quite-evenly-printed pineapple pattern in white.

I was inspired to make this after seeing some gorgeous versions from Meg, and Lara of Thornberry (I also love this amazing version made by Lara for her mum).

Style Arc Adeline Linen pocket

I managed some ok pattern matching on one side of one of the pockets, but didn’t manage to blend the other pocket in quite so well. I actually love the pockets on this particular version of the dress though, so I think when I make it again (my 5th Adeline), I’ll definitely add the patch pockets back on!

Size Details: I sewed this in a straight size 22 and am pictured here with a 47″ bust and 54″ hips. I planned on sizing down for subsequent versions but the hem makes it quite difficult to get in and out of cars with much grace, so I wouldn’t want any less fabric around the bottom

Lacey Dress from StyleArc

StyleArc Lacey Linen

This Lacey Dress from StyleArc is lovely, but hard to find online. As you can imagine, typing ‘lacey dress’ gets you an awful lot of lace dresses and the hashtags are all a mess too. If you’re reading this StyleArc, hire me and I’ll fix your hashtags!

This isn’t part of my normal colour scheme (except the mustard and blue stripes in there), but it was a linen remnant that I couldn’t pass up, and the stripes were obviously asking for the Lacey bodice.
