I have a new Morrison Dress here all ready for the fall. It still stays pretty hot here until November so I like to have a couple of pieces in my closet that look like fall but are still cool enough for the weather. This fits the bill perfectly. I used this "Van Gogh" viscose twill print from PDX Sewing Studio with a liquid drape and beautiful colors for fall...teal, rust, gold and black.
The Morrison Dress is the easiest pattern to put together and my favorite part of making it is the neckband. I feel so accomplished when it's all stitched down and beautiful. The instructions call for the band to be stitched to the wrong side first and then turned to the front for topstitching from the right side. It's so much easier than the traditional method. The Morrison also has an easy sleeve hem technique too!
Happy Sewing Friends! And keep an eye out for a new fall pattern!
