♫ ♪ The New Life

Long time ago, I bought this lovely cotton blend fabric in pale yellow..From the start I wanted to make a shirtdress with it.. I even had cute buttons in my stash.. The project waited a couple of years to get on top of my sewing list..

The pattern I used is #109 from Burda 01/2010 .. I’ve already made two dresses with that pattern, one for my sister and one for myself.. With my third make I changed a few things.. Because of the lightweight fabric, it had more sense to make a sleeveless shirtdress.. In the original pattern there are only couple of vertical pintucks around button closure.. In my version, the whole front pieces of the bodice has vertical tucks, and a few horizontal ones.. Button placket I made with a separate fabric piece because I didn’t want a messy look with horizontal tucks going over it.. The skirt is a bit shorter than the pattern suggests, and those are all of my modifications for this dress..
