Sunshine in a dress

It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a fan of M&M patterns. I love their simple, classic, yet timeless style. I find their patterns just suits me and very little alterations are needed.

I made several version of the Ellis and I definitely didn’t need another one, but when I saw this fabric I just had this vision of a long sleeves Ellis so it is.  I love it, I think this is one of my favourite versions.  It’s just so comfortable and it’s perfect even in winter with a slipover or slouchy cardi.
I drafted the sleeves using the original pattern piece and this is the only change I made to the dress.

Even my other half liked it, he told me that I looked like I’ve been running through a cornfield, which I took as compliment?
