A (Shorter) Lily Linen Dress
Here is yet another version of our Lily Linen Dress pattern. Shirley, who loves colour made up the pattern in our lovely bright Como Celery (only available at Tessuti Surry Hills) and opted for a shorter length in both the dress and sleeves to suit her style. This Lily Linen Dress pattern is proving to be very versatile!
Shirley's finished dress length is approx 100cm and for this shorter length, the dress hem tucks were omitted. The sleeves were shortened to 22cm with an inverted pleat added to the bottom of the sleeve to taper them in a little, this detail complimented the feature twist top pockets nicely.
In true Shirley fashion, the lime dress was styled up with a splash of turquoise for a great summer look!
