Merchant & Mills, Mary White Dress Pattern
The Sailor dress is all grown up and we love it. Mary White is the Skipper's big sister.
by Carolyn N.K. Denham, Merchant & Mills, England
loose fitting dress or top with front and back pleats, side in-seam pockets (dress only), breast pocket and a sailor collar. Perfect attire for any board walk.
All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.
Skill level – intermediate.
This is a paper pattern that includes sizes UK 6 – 18.
We would suggest using the following fabrics – medium weight dress weight wovens, cotton sanded twill, 6-9oz denim, linen, corduroy, tencel, tencel/linen. The more structured the fabric the more sculptural your top/dress will look. If you are using a heavier fabric you may want to use a lighter weight cloth for the under collar and front facings, to reduce bulk.
For reference Brenda (long white hair) is wearing a size 10 and is 5.2. Maxine is wearing a size 14 and is 5.8.
You will need coordinating thread, 2 x 14 – 15mm buttons
