A review of Deer and Doe Mélilot Shirt

Reviewed by norseotter on 18th June, 2017

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:

Cuff sleeved in rayon:

Shirtdress (mashed together with the skirt from the Sew Over It Alex shirtdress)
