Inari Dress number two: Lago di Como

When looking for some linen at an fabric outlet, Mel and me discovered this linen print of an italian villa and imediately I had a Lago di Como inari dress in mind.
I made it exactly like my floral dress, adopting all the fitting alterations.
Being careful to place the rocks at a more flattering level, I was not really considerate of the balcony detail and couldn't get the exact pattern matching at the side seams, due to the shortage of fabric.
There was no fabric left for any sleeves, which I cut out of some leftovers of my watercolour Malvarosa dress. I quite like the cloudy effect of the sleeves now.
Pattern: Inari Dress of the Ticket Collection, Named Patterns
Size: 38 bust grading to a 42 at hip level
Fabric: one repeat of a linen villa print
Alterations: forward shoulder adjustment 1cm, shortened the bodice and sleeves 2cm at the middle of the armhole, lengthened 2 cm under hip level, added  1 cm SA at the vents.
 
The holiday print is nothing I would ever have regarded buying as ready to wear, but this print just puts me in good humour. Have you got any cheery garments, too?
