Description

This is my spin on the Vintage Modern Jamie Shift Dress for the “BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern Contest 2013”.

I was so excited when I received my book from Amazon to get started as all the patterns look amazing and not that difficult.

I needed some inspiration so put a bit of a story board together on pinterest
I have now fallen in love with shift dresses.

I decided on adding a yoke and deleting the front darts. I found a lace collar in my stash which suited the style.

This dress was supposed to be the toile but I decided as I was sewing that it was too cute for a toile and hoped that the fit would be ok. It turned out that I just needed to add some darts in the back and alter the armholes as they were very small.

It can be worn with or without a belt, although adding the belt makes it a bit short.
Nothing a leggin cant fix!

      Thankyou. I was going to use this fabric as the toile but I decided it was too cute to waste.
