Pockets and serious sleeves :)

A review of Pattern Fantastique Mersis Dress and Top

Reviewed by Pickyyy on 18th October, 2021

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.
