The Bantam Dress

This is what I sewed from the Merchant and Mills Workbook, which I had to order from Amazon UK coz it's not available here in North America until next year. (Why is that? Sigh....) So happy I did, because I love all the patterns from this book, you guys:)

The Bantam Vest is the first pattern, and I decided to make the dress version.
I sewed it with a cotton/linen blend fabric.

How I wore it:
The Bantam vest in the dress version is a very comfortable and easy-to-wear piece:)
I love the racer back, and the fact that the back hem is longer.


You'll be seeing these Blondo boots a lot...just saying....
To say that sewing has taken over my hobby life is an understatement....
Anyhoo, hope you're all having a lovely day so far:) XOXO

  15. The dress is beautiful and you styled it nicely with those boots. It looks like you are still enjoying some great weather over there.
    I wish I could sew too; have a great week.
