Description

Is there anything as nice as shirtdresses? I’m not sure, so it was time I tried to make one.

I used Simplicity 2246 pattern, aka the lisette traveler dress, replacing the softly curved skirt by a gathered rectangle. It’s finished with French seams, bias tape and I’m pretty happy with it!

    I agree, shirt dresses are the best!

    Thank you to all of you (as a cinema fan, I especially like your Wes Anderson comment, Miss Jackie O :-) )!!!

    Bkkmel, I used Lladybird’s super useful tutorial on plaid matching if you’re interested!

    Super cute! I’ve just made the straight skirted version, but now I’m thinking how nice to make this version too! The plaid looks really fun, nice pattern matching.
