Holey (not to be confused with holy): defined as having holes.
Hot mess: defined as a person or thing that is spectacularly unsuccessful or disordered, but maintains an attractiveness.
This holey hot mess of green Irish linen is my second version of Simplicity 3559. It could have been a simple and quick make if I’d: (1) kept notes on fitting the first time around and (2) paid attention when overlocking the edges so as to not cut a hole in the fabric.
Oh well. You win some, you lose some. It’ll definitely get worn this summer regardless.
Pattern: Simplicity 3559
Modifications: Removed sleeves, turned under fabric on armholes to finish, shortened for length (as always)
Fabric: Vintage pure Irish linen in emerald green
My first version of this dress is below. Thankfully this new one fits a bit better.
