The Belladone : Deer & Doe


Deer and Doe is one of my favourite contemporary dress pattern makers. Out of my dress patterns I find this one to fit almost any occasion. This is my 2nd Belladone dress. (Sorry for the number of selfies here). My first Belladone was completed back in April, and I was itching to make another.  The next Belladone dress I make will be a real fabric statement – so watch this space. I need an excuse to make another anyway. The pattern instructions are so straight-forward and plain english – my type of lingo. Assembling was easy, the only fiddly part was joining the centre back perfectly and applying the zipper neatly. Last night I ordered another pattern, the Airelle, a darted, conservative blouse with 3/4 sleeves finished with a fitting Chelsea collar. I’ve not made a blouse for a while so looking forward to this one.
