Shirt Dress

Added Jul 16, 2008

by bodedavis







I took a New Look blouse pattern and tweaked it. I cut the top shorter, finished the top and then added a waistband and skirt. I also had to add a side zipper in order to get the dress on and off. Turned out great – now if my husband would only take me somewhere fancy…

Material Notes

100% Cotton Poplin, invisible zipper, interfacing, buttons

    Wow, I love this dress and it looks great! The fabric reminds me of the Finnish Marimekko brand – v. expensive designs and fabrics though!!! Good job :)

    I love this style dress and it suits you perfectly. I’m working on something similar but I think your one looks way more cool! I hope you get your fancy night out!

    The flower fabric is great and I like the way the top opens into a “v”, it elongates the neck. May I ask which New Look pattern it was? You did a great job on the dress.
