Alongside their traditional cardboard patterns, Merchant & Mills have developed tissue paper versions of classic styles for easy and rewarding home sewing.
The patterns are meticulously developed by Carolyn Denham with an emphasis on silhouettes that avoid fussy fastenings and details. Each finished article is a masterpiece in clean lines and great tailoring that gives a grown-up and ultimately elegant feel.
The Trapeze Dress is Merchant & Mills' signature style. This multi-way pattern can be used to create a beautifully flattering dress with either full, 3/4 or no sleeves.
Approximately 2.73 yards (2.5m) of 55" (140cm) fabric required.
Merchant & Mills is "determined to encourage the world to sew." Founded by Carolyn Denham, M&M seems to single-handedly lift dressmaking out of its association with drudgery and cutesy florals. Alongside patterns, M&M also sells an ever-expanding, supremely curated collection of fabrics and sewing notions. Products are utilitarian, pleasurable and 'proper.'
