Gingham Myosotis Dress

As soon as I finished my first Myosotis Dress, I started a second one in this sweet gingham crepe from Sew Me Sunshine. What can I say...the Deer and Doe pattern has totally stolen my heart!

Despite loving how extra my red floral version is, I wanted this one to be slightly more wearable and easier to layer during the colder months. To achieve this, I left the ruffles off the sleeves, meaning I can slip a cardigan/jumper on without any fuss. I also omitted the Mandarin collar for a more open neckline and drafted a facing instead.

I kept the tiered, ruffled skirt though, because...duh! I also added waist ties again as I prefer a nipped in waist on my shape. For reference, just like last time, I made a straight size 40.

I didn't think it would be possible, but I love this version even more than my first one. It's the perfect mix of fun and wearable - from days in the office to nights out with friends, it's already on heavy rotation in my wardrobe.

If you're a Myosotis fan, what's your ideal version?
