Description

A light cotton shirt dress. I used this pattern that has a series
of shirts.
I would like to make another one with more interesting fabric and
pipe out the back and front yoke.

I made up the front frill thingy. I only had two and a half yards of
fabric and did not align the yoke pieces along the grain as suggested.
I don’t know what will happen !!! Yipes.

Also, I had very little fabric left for the sleeves and belt and sort of
did my own pattern I guess!

    The colour and the frilly bits are simply scrumptious!!! Would be nice to see how it fits you!

    Ooh it’s amazing! I love it! What a great use of a shirt pattern- I love the gathering at the shoulders and the pleats!

    i love it – you must tell me how you did the front frill thingy, i need step by step instructions and smoke signals! I like it a lot!

      It is so easy. I would think that the JJ blouse must have ruffle instruction… no? Take a peak or else I
      will write and tell you how I did it !!!!!

    it looks great! you can always jazz it up with some funky colored accessories if you think the fabric isn’t that exciting. or maybe a different belt, maybe a fun scarf belt or something. also, love the doggies in the background!

    Very nice work. I love the yoke style top with the slight gathers. Front detailing is also great!
