market dress

I finished this last week but didn't get the chance to take a photo of it until last night. The dress is made out of a soft but sturdy linen in a pale natural/taupe color. It's so neutral that you can wear really bright colors with it. I'm curious about what it would look like with some blue suede flats or wild printed leggings (I like the white version). Can you tell that this pattern is a hybrid of the "winter plaid top" pattern and the Sunshine and Shadow dress pattern? I wanted to make something super comfortable and perfect to throw on with some canvas sneakers for running errands on the weekend. Yoga pants are comfy, but you want to feel cute when you go to the farmer's market, right?
