As far as I am concerned, there are only two seasons: from March to August, it’s gingham season, and from September to February it’s time for plaid flannel! By the way, have you ever noticed that buffalo plaid is basically gingham‘s evil twin? White buffalo plaid or black gingham, it might be the most controversial question since the color of “the dress”… But anyway let’s get back to my new shirtdress!

With the end of the year approaching quickly, it’s time for me to get out of hibernation and catch up on some projects from this summer! In particular I wanted to talk about this dress which was hands down my favorite from 2017 🙂
The new Deer&Doe collection is out! It contains three patterns: the Givre dress/tee/tank top, the Azara midi skirt, and the Bleuet dress which is back in a brand new edition. After sewing a million muslins and prototypes all summer, I actually don’t have many personal versions of these patterns to show you here, but I still wanted to post about my favorite Givre dress!
I finally sewed my first Named pattern! I’ve been admiring the aesthetic and apparent quality of this Finnish brand’s patterns for years, but I’ve always had trouble picturing myself in their garments – too edgy for me. But then the Playground collection was released and I instantly fell in love with the Reeta shirtdress and the Helga playsuit. I managed to talk myself out of the playsuit, since I couldn’t figure out where to wear it, but the dress went straight to my pattern library.
I’m not one to hide my love for a good knit dress: classy yet comfortable, the ideal secret pajama! Especially in floral prints, these are always the dresses that get me the most compliments 😉 My floral Moneta dress is starting to look a little worse for wear so it was time to come up with a successor!
