Pockets and serious sleeves :)
A review of Pattern Fantastique Mersis Dress and Top
I’ve been making this dress for months. The construction wasn’t hard, it’s well drafted and has good instructions. But the fabric I chose was duck egg ‘cotton’ and I planned to dye it black. Three attempts later it had hardly budged and was this pale denim shade which I thought was dull. Yesterday I finally found a dye which could turn it darker, so I took these pictures before the transformation. Now I think it’s growing on me!
I’m planning to make the top version soon. Not sure my knees are suitable for this length, but I do love the pockets and beautiful sleeve shape. It’s very easy to wear and feels well constructed.
