Linen Merchant and Mills Fielder Top

Back in November while I was waiting for summer to arrive and the weather was stubbornly not playing the game, I was researching and planning my summer makes and not really making much for myself at all.  Usually by November I have a rather long list of things I want to make and the sunshine is often a great motivator.  

My summer clothing making began last year in July when I was making things to take to USA, so by November I already had a few things made and didn't really need much at all.  I did however want to make a casual dress that I could wear with sneakers and I really wanted it to be made of linen.  I had also seen some really lovely rtw tops that were made in a woven with ribbing bands.  I have one already made using a Burdastyle pattern and in chiffon but didn't think it would work well as a dress.   Despite having a couple of raglan tee and sweatshirt patterns, I didn't have anything really suitable.  Rather than work with what I had and just adjust the pattern…
