Easy Breezy

A review of Merchant & Mills The Fielder Dress and Top

Reviewed by Natasha Stirrup on 29th September, 2021

So excited to finish this top, I wore it the very next day.  This combines my favorite elements of casual but with a touch of smarts.  I made a toile in a 10 because the finished garment measurements made it seem like it would be enormous, but I couldn’t move my arms so I ended up with usual rtw size of UK 12, which fits great.

I really like the shoulder shaping and bust darts, they fall in just the right places.  I made sure to taper off with a small stitch and tie the loose thread ends ( as learnt through the foldline facebook group).

I did add an extra two inches to the length of the front and back and next time will make a longer sleeve version.  The M&M ribbing is gorgeous and makes the garment, BUT, I comfortably used just two pieces when it is suggested three.  This did add to the cost, so check before you buy.  I’m already planning the next top with the extra piece of ribbing…..
