A fitted shirt dress using McCall’s 4769. I used my favourite Liberty Tana Lawn print and fully underlined the dress with white silk cotton. I also used vintage buttons and a vintage lace trim on the hem, so the whole dress was a great stash buster! I’d highly recommend the pattern if you’re looking for a basic shirt dress shape with a nod to vintage styles.
More photos and construction details on my blog. Thanks for reading! x
2 metres of Liberty Tana Lawn cotton for the body of the dress, white silk cotton for underlining.
Vintage buttons and vintage lace trim for the hem.
