Another Dress No 1 by 100 Acts of Sewing

This seems to be one of my favorite dress patterns these days. The ladies over at Love To Sew Podcast would call it a TNT pattern. (TNT = Tried & True) It is  Dress No. 1 by 100 Acts of Sewing .  It is a fairly simple silhouette and easy to sew for beginners (like me). I made this a little while back in a printed cotton fabric, but I wanted to make it again in a dressier fabric. I was attracted to this rose colored linen fabric with tiny flecks of gold metallic thread running through it, which ended up being a bit challenging to work with because it shreds easily, but I managed to pull it off! I was so excited when I also found gold metallic bias tape for the neckline and the armholes! It was going to be the perfect detail. I have to say that it turned out nice, however that gold metallic bias tape was not beginner friendly either. It was very slippery to sew. I got scared when I messed up a few time and I had to use my seam ripper on it and re-sew. It shreds so easily along
