Description

I cobbled this pattern together from a couple vintage patterns. My sister wanted a classic shirtdress, so we picked out a nice (washable!) black cotton sateen with a tiny bit of stretch.

The skirt is a full 1.5 circles.

    So wonderful – Last night I was flipping through 1st Dibs when I stumbled upon a shirt dress I really loved and thought ‘hmmm I think I could make this!.’ And this morning, here it is, yours is very similar! http://fashion.1stdibs.com/avl_item_detail.php?id=13426

    Great job! I love shirt dresses!

    very nice “cobble” I think to be fair it is sooooo much more than that though. Great dress!
