Description

I’ve been wanting to make a cute, casual chambray or denim shirtdress for myself for some time now, and have finally completed one. I used McCalls 6885 pattern to make this 1/2 placket dress with button tab rolled sleeves. I love this dress, plan to wear it often, and probably will be sewing it up again in more fabrics and colors!

    This is Gorgeous on you. Shirtdresses are everywhere here. I much prefer yours though. I would make lots of different versions as you really suit this style. I bought a 100% silk red one in a charity shop for 50p. It’s lovely but a size 22. I intend to alter it and wear it with thick tights and boots x

      Thank you Mary! I most likely will make up more of these, and in red silk, sounds lovely and right up my alley! I hope to see your up-cycle, alteration dress project post soon!
