Chambray Collared Shirt Dress

Added Apr 25, 2017

I had this chambray material over six years and finally used it., to make something fun and nice…so loving the style.

This is a design from Melissa Watson collection. The design is a pullover dress with collar, fitted bodice, fly button closure and elasticized back pleats.

The original design has shaped hemline ….I modified it slightly by adding a lovely embroidery rich lace at the hemline and a right side skirt pocket for functionality.

Thinking about another dress in the style
