Corduroy Shirtdress

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.

Material Notes

Fine wale corduroy





I used the tutorial from <; to make the sleeve plackets.

The following website helped me figure out the formula for making the main dress placket

    I like the detail of the buttons on this dress, and it does look comfy to wear. This pattern looks like one you could have a lot of fun with.
