Red shirt dress

Added May 15, 2008

This classy shirt dress I made from mix of cotton and linen. I love a kind of shirt dresses.
I made already a denim jacket from this pattern and I really liked it, so I decided to make it as summer dress. I bought this fabric a time ago and I thought that it would be the right one.
I actually do not like linen because this fabric does not look nice after whole day of wearing it ( you can see it on the pictures )

Material Notes

mix of cotton and linen

    This is a well-done job! I’m planning to attempt a shirt dress, and I can only pay you compliments, very nicely done details.

    Something like this is what I have been looking for all over and have been determined to make myself. That red is beautiful! Thanks for inspiring me to just go and make one myself! I think I’ll try this weekend :)

    I always wanted to have a shirt dress. This one looks great, it doesn’t look messy at all.

    Really nice dress! I like those kind of dresses, too, it’s time that I do something like this ;) Well, that’s the linen-look, I quite like it and I don’t think that it looks too messy on your dress! Good job!
