I was able to finish the both dresses I wanted to make and wear to the family reunion this weekend–yay for days off prior to camping trips!

The plaid dress is for the airplane and has handy big pockets. (It was inspired by this version from A.P.C. for $120.)

I used my new initial labels on it, too. Because it’s important to have a monogrammed linen muumuu in which to wander the prairie. Just ask the pioneers.
