This is one garment I wasn’t expecting to make! I never thought much about the Deer and Doe Myosotis Dress pattern but I recently saw a couple versions I really liked on Instagram. I kind of had the pattern in the back of mind since then. I went to New York with my friends Jess and Hannah for another garment district shopping trip last month. When I was at Mood, I spotted this white cotton with embroidered flowers.  I figured I’d find something to make with it so I bought 2 yards. I didn’t immediately think about this dress but the next day I realized this fabric would be perfect! I thought I didn’t buy enough according to the pattern envelope and was so disappointed. My friend Jess even went back to get me another yard but it sold out in a couple days! The guy said it had been there 10 years. What are the odds? I decided to buy the pattern and lay it out anyway. I actually had just enough! The only piece I omitted was the pockets because this fabric is slightly sheer. I have to wear this over a slip.

I had no trouble sewing this up. I made it in one day. I think the fit is good. I was one size in my bust and a larger size in my waist. I ended up just cutting the size for my bust and was fine because this dress is loose fitting. I could consider grading out to a larger waist size next time.

I think this is the perfect spring/ summer dress. It’s so light and airy. I’m just so thrilled with how this turned out. I love the Deer and Doe patterns I have tried and this one is definitely another keeper! Also, how beautiful is this tree in my backyard?! I’ve lived here 4 springs and don’t recall it ever looking this good!
