This is a shirtdress I made from a fine wale corduroy. I saw a denim shirtdress that I loved in the Boden catalog, so I made one kind of similar. I designed it in Garment Designer software, then took the side seams in quite a bit while sewing, because I’d added too much ease. It was my first experience making sleeve plackets, which turned out to be much for fun and much less scary than I expected. This is very comfortable to wear.
Fine wale corduroy
I used the tutorial from <http://www.timms.ca/kft/sew/sleevePlacket.html> to make the sleeve plackets.
