Myosotis Dress

Myosotis Dress by Deer and Doe

 

This is the first Myosotis Dress I made.  It was made using double gauze from Hart's Fabric.  The double gauze was easy to sew, and the dress is light and summery.  I made no changes to the pattern this first time through.  I cut a size 34.  The pattern was super simple.  Also, I have to say this was the first bodice I have ever made that fits.  Amazing.  There was no part of the pattern where I got tripped up or wondered what I was doing.

I cut a size small.  I made no alterations while sewing.  The black fabric is 100% hemp linen from Hemp Traders and the godets are canvas from Cotton and Steel.  The linen is from my stash, and the canvas was scraps from a pair of pants I made last year.  I intended for these to be a wearable muslin.

 

The pattern was easy enough to put together and cut out.  There are very few pieces.
