Myosotis Dress

Hello friends! It’s been a while, hasn’t it! Lately I’ve been focused on sewing things I really want/need in my wardrobe, and going slow. Free time is still unpredictable and it’s nice not to stress about getting something done when I don’t have any.

Ever since the day the Myosotis Dress was released by Deer and Doe patterns, I wanted to make it. While I was in the hospital with my baby, my husband had to go into work for one of the days and my mom was keeping my other two kids entertained so I had the whole day to myself. I spent a lot of time on my phone, and ordered this gorgeous fabric from Blackbird Fabrics while I was at it. To be honest, it’s pretty rare that I buy fabric just because I love it. I usually have to have an exact project in mind for it. I LOVE this fabric!! The colors are stunning, and I love the 70’s vintage vibe of the print. It’s a viscose crepe.

I held onto it for a while waiting for the perfect dress pattern to pop up. The Myosotis Dress did and the search was over. I needed a new summer dress, and I decided to make this one to wear on my baby’s blessing day a few weeks ago, and so it has really special meaning to it. (Being in the hospital and celebrating baby’s blessing day). It’s a special dress!

Okay, now to the dress pattern. It was easy to put together, and the instructions were great. I wish it was slightly more fitted in the waist. I did take a little off the side seams, but somehow it still ended up looser than I wanted. (But I still love it!).

I raised the neckline 1″ for more coverage, and lengthened the bottom ruffle by a few inches. I wish I had made it a few inches longer even, or added to the top part of the dress skirt slightly more. I used wooden buttons from arrow mountain.

I’m excited to wear this dress through summer and fall! I’m really happy with how it turned out. The fabric is even better in person, too. Thanks for reading along, and happy sewing!
