Merchant and Mills Womenswear - The Fielder Dress & Sweater
The Fielder dress and top is based on a traditional sweatshirt. Imagined in our laundered linen with a matching cotton rib. It features three quarter length raglan sleeves and inseam side pockets. We have used a cotton elastane 2x2 cuffing rib which comfortably stretches by half again. If using an alternative rib, check the stretch on a 10cm measurement. If it stretches less than 15cms, cut with a generous seam allowance (5cm) and to be safe, pin, tack and try on. Pocket bags can be cut in the main fabric or lining.
Sizes: 6-18 UK
Choose a laundered linen, soft cotton, flannel, lightweight wool or lightweight denim. This style could be converted to jersey but the darts will need to be removed taking some pattern cutting know-how - choose something that's quite stable if you do this. Fabric pictured - Virgin White linen with white ribbing dyed using navy dylon machine dye (packaging photo), Sweeps Scrim linen and black ribbing, and the top is also in Virgin White linen. Our Ray Stitch version is made in a lightweight cotton seersucker with our own plain black ribbing.
