Merchant and Mills Dress Shirt

2

Merchant and Mills patterns are great.  This is now the second one that I have made.  I don't make many clothes (it's a time thing), but this Dress Shirt is the second Merchant and Mills pattern that I've gone for.  I think it is the wear-ability of the patterns.  They are casual and simple designs but equally elegant.  That casual style really appeals to me... I'm a jeans and trainers kinda girl!

The making of a shirt was a good challenge for me, and in a big check gave me some pattern matching to get my teeth into.  I have to say the pattern matching is pretty hot... I've failed to take a picture of the side seams so you will have to trust me.  I made a couple of changes: I shorted the length and also the front bib.  I cut the back yoke and the front bib on the bias to add interest with the check pattern of the fabric.

The fabric is a gorgeous quality lightweight suiting in a cotton/ linen mix.  We have just received delivery of a brown and navy colourway too which you can find here.   024015 028031012

    wow, looks ace! I love this fabric. The blue colour way would look great as a shirt dress, I think I may have to invest in some in time for spring.
