Sewing FO: Vogue V8667 pattern

I've been sewing a lot more lately, and I really like making things for spring and summer because of all the nice print fabrics that I've found. I really like working with linen and linen blends and the slightly stretchy slightly shiny medium weight cottons. This dress is from Vogue Pattern V8667. The fabric is a linen blend that I purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics. The lining is a light-weight muslin that I also purchased there. I really like this pattern. It's very straightforward to sew and the pieces are cut such that one can easily make small sizing adjustments to various bits.
I might make a second un-lined version from some stretch denim and some sort of print for the just the collar.
