The Deer & Doe Sureau pattern is described as a “mid-season dress.” To that I say, “Not if I make it out of wool!”
So here is my wintery Sureau. Mid-season in Cleveland can get pretty cold, so this dress will see a lot of action. It’s made out of our Italian wool flannel. My proof is on the (lack of a) hem:
Super 100’s refers to the wool quality and fiber diameter.
I lined it with black cotton batiste, which in the pattern is simply a matter of making a duplicate of the dress, and I omitted the facings.
Here I am wearing the dress:
Here’s Poppy wearing the dress:
This fabric looks and feels gorgeous; it’s lightweight, yet warm in the winter. Bolt & Spool has so many delightful prints, sometimes it’s hard to resist making garments with them. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to make something with this fabric, and it’s pretty great in this dress.
