BurdaStyle Prairie Shirt Dress 04/2011 #107

Added May 11, 2014

I bought this fabric from Spotlight in the January sales for something like $3 a metre. When purchasing fabric I always just buy what I’m drawn to with no particular plan on what I’ll make from it (my overflowing stash can attest to this!).

I decided I needed a shirt dress and found a couple of options in back issues, settling on this version – the BurdaStyle Prairie Shirt Dress 042011 #107 pattern I altered to have buttons right down the front, and tapered the waist in, plus used the collar instead of the small stand-up collar used in the model shot. I also have to say, I’m quite short and very short in the body, for some reason my bodice looks much shorter than the model shot – perhaps I didn’t add seam allowance?
