The fulwood shift dress by MIY Collection
I have made 2 versions of the Fulwood by MIY collection. It is a great over- the- head casual semi- fitted garment that can be adapted in many ways to make it your own.
The outdoor pic above is me in Tuscany- on one of the best holidays EVER! (beautiful scenery, swimming, wine, pasta, olives!) It was a very mild autumn half term holiday and in fact very hot at times during the day. This was a perfect outfit for the season. I used a very lightweight cotton shirting from Goldhawk road which was ideal for the garment in terms of comfort and appearance. It also has the look of a light linen in the way it creases. I gathered the skirt part to the bodice and prefer this casual look to the sharp pleated version below.
The best things about this pattern:
1. So comfortable to wear!
2. Can be adapted in a number of ways (optional cowl neck, pleats at front or back or gathered, turn back sleeves or not)
3. No fastenings to worry about sewing or doing up.
4. Can be worn tunic style over leggings.
5. Perfect for layering.
