Caroline is my 1st Linen design, since I normally work with jersey, silk, and a few cottons. I typically don't wear linen, as I find it a bit scratchy and sometimes heavy. However, I brought in 5 yards to sample of this linen/viscose blend last year and fell in love with the fabric. This is my "go to" dress now for heading out to shop, lunch, or vacation.
My original thought was a caftan style, but they can feel so oversized this season. I tapered the bustline slightly for a more feminine feel and exaggerated the shoulder sleeve cap to give a beautiful sculptural look and more coverage to the arm.
I have a 50 yard bolt and this will be a limited edition piece for summer.
