Leini is a cute and relaxed, knee-length summer dress. A loose fitting and flared design with an elastic waist and wide vertical, collar-like pleats at the front from shoulder to waist.
The bodice is lined, but can also be made without a lining.
Chose a light-medium weight woven or knit fabric. Make the dress with a lining if your fabric is non-stretch and difficult to hem. The sample garment is made out of cotton voile.
