Buy the Mersis Dress and Top sewing pattern from Pattern Fantastique. Mersis is a shift dress for superstars. It draws on 80s glam with generous shapes and peek-a-boo features that suggest more than they reveal. Mersis features Dynasty balloon sleeves, a deep ‘V’ neck at the back and a midway ‘V’ for the front neckline. The ‘V’ necklines are purposefully cut to be above most bra straps and to minimise shoulder drop. The centre front seam features a wide seam allowance topstitched down to enhance the long line from shoulder to hem. The centre front hem has a mitre corner finish and split for the longer lengths. Mersis can also be made as a top.
