Just call me Linda Lue

Pattern: Meghan Peasant Dress by Sis Boom
Size: M (8-10)
Fabric: Viscose from Minerva Crafts 

It's always exciting and nerve-wracking in equal measures making a garment from a previously untried designer, but I was really keen to try this pattern. The design on the cover is sooooo cute, and I had visions of myself wandering a prairie farm wearing this dress, cowboy boots, and a denim jacket. In my mind I'm basically Linda Lue Linden (played by Sandra Bullock) in The Thing Called Love.

This is my third Deer & Doe pattern and it has confirmed that they are vying for top spot with Sewaholic in the 'Indie Designers I Love' charts.
