Back from my Tuscan get-away and back to the grind (and terrible weather 😭)

While I was gone my dear friend @michellesews_patterns released her newest pattern, the Effie Dress!

I was lucky enough to get to test this pattern a few months ago and have been wearing it on repeat all summer.

This is a wonderful shirtdress with lots of thoughtful details, ( I love the box pleat in the back and the disguised button band!) and a great fit.

I added a cuff to the sleeve, because that’s how I roll but it’s the only adjustment I made.

I used an ex-Marni cotton lawn from @selvedgeandbolts because I love Toucans! I left off the pockets and have big regrets because of it 🤣🤣🤣- pockets are a must!!

The instructions are very detailed and I would love to hack this into a summer blouse next year.

I don’t know if it’s because it’s been so long since I was in a wide, open, natural space like this but I find myself admiring the scenery in Cortney’s picture just as much as her gorgeous floral Effie dress! Love!! 😍
