#2017MakeNine - Factory Dress - Merchant & Mills

My fourth make of the #2017MakeNine challenge is complete! I've spoken before about my deep unfaltering love for Merchant and Mills before and the Factory Dress has been on my 'Must Sew' list for literally years. I finally got round to making it a few weeks ago and I was not disappointed!

I decided to use this really lovely brushed twill from Fabworks Online. It's seriously SO SOFT. I figured it would give this dress a warm and wintery feel (and it's so soft it's like wearing a nightie - win win!). The fabric is only £4 a metre, and I used around 2 metres, so this is a bargain dress.

As always, the little design quirks and details found in Merchant & Mills pattern always surprise and impress me. The instructions are so easy to follow that they make sewing up garments using their patterns a breeze, and you always end up with a high-end professional looking item of clothing for your me-made wardrobe.

I wore my Factory Dress for the first time on my birthday and I basically never want to take it off. The sew was so easy and striaghforward that I don't really have much to say on it, other than I love it and I want to make a million more.

Don't forget to keep up with my #2017MakeNine challenge on Pinterest and follow me on Bloglovin' too so you never miss a post!
