It’s Monday, and that means time for a work-week dress. Last time you saw this pattern, it was in the form of a flannel shirt, so this is a little different take on the design (though probably a little closer to the pattern maker’s original intent). I had a few problems making this dress, including my serger going through all the layers and my lack of good fabric layout. Besides the fact that I had to cut the sleeves in two pieces, they were much more loose than I expected. I took them in, but they look best rolled up. Overall it was an easy, quick dress to make if you already have the pattern pieces cut out.
