First of all, let’s talk about this fabric. This Genuine Handwoven Ikat is what my summer dreams are made of. It’s from Michael Levine fabrics, and it is simply breath taking. I also have another print in blue because one is definitely not enough! You can find this print, and many other on their website.
The pattern I used is by Merchant and Mills, called, The Dress Shirt. I bought this pattern quite a while ago, but have been holding onto it for safe keeping until the right fabric came along. AND IT DID! These beautiful Michael Levine wovens are just what this pattern needs.
I added length to my dress, but then I ended up taking it up a little. (I wanted the side seam length to hit just right above my knee). I also took it in on the sides just a bit. It’s a boxy, loose fit, and honestly what could be more perfect for those warm summer days that are quickly approaching? I’m going to be wearing this dress ALL summer.
