      thank you, this pattern is great to work with, I did a lot of altering. I omitted the back darts, lengthened the sleeves, traded a favorite skirt pattern for the one in the pattern, and tweaked the collar.

    Love this! Store bought shirt dresses never fit me. This inspires me to make my own.
