Ellis Dress, Merchant and Mills und Lingerie-Set zur Annäherung Süd

Hello, dear sewing friends,

we southern German sewists had such a good time at our annual sewing bee last week at Würzburg. What a charming university city and we were lucky enjoying the golden autumn sun.
At sewing bees, I would sew easy projects because all the chatting would distract me easily.
I chose the Ellis and Hattie pattern by Merchant and Mills which I wanted to make since I had seen it years ago. At a fabric outlet near our home I found this cotton print showing orange leopards on a navy background.
Version Ellie features the higher waistline and french bust darts, both versions featuring decorative neck darts being fitted at bust and shoulders with a loose fit at the waist and a gathered skirt.
The length is midi which is too long for me. I will give the dress to my daughter. I guess she will love the modern length.
Pattern: Ellis and Hattie, version Ellie, by Merchant and Mills
Size: 12
Fabric: cotton print, KBC Lörrach
Alterations: armscyce taken in 1cm at shoulder point and 0,5cm at front.
Through #BRAugust2018, I got a lot of inspiration and so I made a little lingerie set, too.

Patterns: Hanna Bralette and Mia Panties, Studio Costuras
Size: XS, bralette and , panties
Fabric: lace, elastics and lining: and glitter pink stretch mesh: Madalynne Intimates

Have a lovely sewing time!
