Join Kim in sewing the Ellis & Hattie Dress! 

The Ellis and Hattie Dress by Merchant and Mills is a classic yet interesting dress that is the perfect combination for any mood. So what's is going to be? The Ellis or the Hattie? if Ellis is a gentle woman then Hattie is a blithe bachelorette. Both feature four delicate neck darts, Ellis, who gets some more feminine shaping from bust darts, is waisted, with set in sleeves and inseam side pockets. Hattie has a lined bodice, dropped waist and bold patch pockets. The choice is yours! Sizing offered: UK 8-28.
