The dress shirt from merchant and mills

I recently started stocking dressmaking patterns from Merchant and Mills
I made a few pieces from the Camber set pattern and decided to give the shirt dress a go.
One thing I have found is how well the patterns are to use. Really good quality paper patterns and the instructions are very well written and easy to follow. Honestly, I know I want people to buy from me but I mean it! I have just finished this one using Kona Cotton sour apple .
I am really pleased with it and am looking forward to wearing it but as I type this  I am actually wearing  (survived 2 washes..) this pink one. I made using the Kona Cotton blush pink. sorry about the rubbish picture. I have to get better at this selfie thingy!!! I am not a fan of having my picture taken.

 I am going a little make crazy at the moment, and I am sure it has something to do with my new overlocker. I love the professional finish and has given me a little boast of confidence. I made this cushion as a thank you to my lovely friend lisa who walked my gorgeous frank while I suffered from the flu. And yes it WAS flu. I think when you have been bed ridden for more than 3 days and it lasted 2 weeks I can say that?
All better now and with this high wind and chilly day I am struggling to want to walk Frank but I best go do it and then I can make something else.! You have to look at the positive....


  1. There's been so much going around, it's horrible. Glad you're in the pink again! (sorry)

    Love the cushion too x

  2. I'm rubbish at selfies too - but those dresses look good, however they're photographed.
