I’ve made this pattern up three times, in my latest iteration as a shirtdress, and I have more versions planned (haven’t done the mandarin collar yet!). It’s fairly quick, stylish, fits nicely and is a wardrobe staple for me. My only gripe is that the instructions for the covered placket are a bit too sparse for anyone new to the technique.

Here are my versions:

Long sleeved in cotton: http://norseotter.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/steampunk-melilot.html

Cuff sleeved in rayon: http://norseotter.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/sew-dots-melilot.html

Shirtdress (mashed together with the skirt from the Sew Over It Alex shirtdress) http://norseotter.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/sewtogetherforsummer-melilex-dress.html
