Merino Dress

I was let into the secret of an awesome fabric outlet store where you can get Merino at a good price. I picked up 1.5m of two different colours for a steal and am still trying to use it all.

The first thing I did was cut out a square from a red wine coloured piece which I will edge and use as a baby swaddle. With the leftover material I wanted to make a little shift dress for Chloe.

I was able to pick up a super easy pattern for $5. I probably could have just made up a pattern, but I wanted to use the merino well. The result is very cute and will work well as a winter/spring dress.
