I have seen many, many lovely versions of the Papercut Patterns Meridian dress over the last few years, so I added it to my ‘make nine’ plans for 2021 and popped the pattern on my Christmas list.
This dress has been a LONG time in the making! I first fell in love with this linen from Merchant and Mills in summer 2019 and then finally convinced myself to buy some last August when I visited Rye with Patsy. I kept my eye out for patterns that would offer opportunities to play with stripes and struck gold with the French Navy Forsythe dress!
I’d had my eye on the Anna Allen Demeter dress ever since I saw tester versions popping up on Instagram after its release in August 2019. I didn’t originally intend to buy it, but I figured as I was still thinking about it over a year later, I probably should!
The Maven Patterns Kitty dress has been in my digital stash for quite some time now and I have been meaning to make one for ages. Patsy loved the pattern too and we’d talked about making one together for a while, so we decided it would be the project we worked on together in real life when I visited her in November.
