This is my version of the great Deer and Doe Sureau dress.
Like all other Deer and Doe patterns it was a great cut. The brand indicates that its designs cater for rather curvy women with a C cup so I made a slight Small Bust Adjustment (SBA) to fit my B cup. I cut the dress in a size 36 except for the waist which I widened to a 38. It fits perfectly and was quick and easy to sew.
I used a paisley print cotton and added copper-colored buttons on the bodice.
It really feels very comfortable and is very versatile. I have already worn it so many times and can’t wait to make another!
