my autumnal Magnolia dress

This is Magnolia dress, brand new pattern from Deer and Doe.
Magnolia is a mock-wrap dress with two variations: floor-length evening gown with long sleeves and plunging neckline, and a knee-length dress with higher neckline and butterfly sleeves. Since my lifestyle isn’t glamorous enough to justify making an evening gown and we’re deep into autumn so it makes little sense to sew summer dress either, I decided to mix and match elements of both versions to get my perfect autumnal dress!

For my dress I combined long sleeves of view A with higher neckline of view B, and I cut skirt to be midi length. My goal was everyday dress with a bit of 70s vibe, and I’m very happy with how it turned out. I love it to pieces!

For more pictures and full review of this pattern you can visit my blog! Hope you’ll like it :)

Material Notes

My fabric is beautiful floral crepe – it has a lovely drape and it doesn’t wrinkle, which makes it pretty much perfect fabric for this pattern!
