From Merchant & Mills the Mary White is a loose fitting dress or top with front and back pleats, side in-seam pockets (dress only), breast pocket and a sailor collar.


Skill level – intermediate.


This is a paper pattern in two size ranges;

UK 6 – 18

UK 20 - 28


We would suggest using the following fabrics – medium weight dress weight wovens, cotton sanded twill, 6-9oz denim, linen, corduroy, tencel, tencel/linen. The more structured the fabric the more sculptural your top/dress will look. If you are using a heavier fabric you may want to use a lighter weight cloth for the under collar and front facings, to reduce bulk.


You will need:

1 x Matching thread

2 x 14 – 15mm buttons


Please see the additional photographs for fabric requirements and garment sizing.
