Dot Com Dress

Added Mar 19, 2008

by ceregana

Berlin, Germany






A dress made out of the JJ pattern. I redrafted the collar and the sleeves and added length to it. It can be worn over pants as a long shirt or as a dress. On my blog I have a bit of the process of sewing and pattern making.

Material Notes

a shiny cotton.

    Hm. Thank you all again! JJ I am not sure if it is really in now. I just love shirtdresses – it is a kind of a librarian chic or something like that…

    Fabulous idea. I love the collar and tie at sleeve bands. Shirtdress is hot now, isn’t it?

    I love the collar and neck tie. The style reminds me of dresses I’ve seen in Japanese pattern drafting books from the 1960’s.
