Robe Myosotis, Deer+Doe. Vergissmeinnicht-Kleid zum MMM

Hello, dear sewing friends,

the monthly German sewing meet-up at Me-Made-Mittwoch is a good occasion to present an unblogged dress.
I didn't know what to think of the dress pattern Myosotis when I first saw it. Too girly, too maternity?
It's name means forget-me-not and it's an oversized shirt dress featuring a small v-neck with a mandarin collar and three buttons. There are two front darts and back darts but the waistline is high and rather wide.
There were quite some lovely versions popping up at instagram #ddmyosotis. In addition, I had purchased some beautiful blush swiss dot linen at our great blogger meet-up last november at Köln which suddenly wanted being a robe Myosotis!
Because I had quite a lot of the fabric, I decided to sew version A with all the ruffles. I chose to slightly downsize the top and made a size 38.
I observed that some makes had some vertical pleats at the shoulder. This is an issue I had at my robe Belladone, too. I compared the shoulder with my block and made a try by lowering the shoulder point by 1,5cm and I guess it was the correct adjustment.

I am surprised how much I like wearing this swishy dress!
After the first wash, the linen crumpled quite regularly because of the Swiss dots so I decided not to iron it. This way, I will wear it even more often.
Pattern: Myosotis version A, Deer and Doe
Size: 38 shirt and 42 skirt
Fabric: Swiss dot linen, Frou Frou
Alterations: lowered shoulder point by 1,5cm and lengthened skirt to size 46

Today, I finished another dress, this time version B.
I made the same finishes I had made for my other version, false flat felled seams (Bernina foot #71) and small hemmed seams (foot #69).

Pattern: Myosotis version B, Deer and Doe
Size: 38 shirt and 42 skirt
Fabric: crumpled linen, Garconne Freiburg
Alterations: lowered shoulder point by 1,5cm
