Description

This pattern is from Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing and features shirring at the back, which makes it super comfortable to wear. The fabric is a bumblebee-printed rayon. It was so tricky to sew with because of how drapey it is, but I love the flowy, almost 1940s style feel of the shirtwaist as a result of it! And the print is just sensational!

      Thank you, Deanna! It’s super comfortable with the shirring in the back, too. It makes me feel like I’m wearing sweat pants instead of a nice dress!

      The shirring is definitely one of the super cute things about your dress!
