Vogue Shirt Dress

Added Aug 16, 2011

Kota Kinabalu, M...






I love shirt dresses, the ones at the mall are very pretty but usually I couldn’t find them in the length that enables me to hide my stubby knees and calves; now that I made my own, I could hem it to my desired length.

I piped the collars and sleeves. Those pastel pink buttons are rather sweet.

had this green neon belt like forever and I never used it as I thought it was hideous but now it serves a purpose. :)

Fabric : 2.5 yards Takahiro Japanese Cotton from Malaysian local fabric chain Kamdar: RM3.40 per yard (on 50% off sale, yay!);

Total Cost: RM8.50/USD2.80

Pattern: Vogue V8352

Time to complete: Spent average 2 hours each over 4 workdays after 9pm (after Little Terror has gone to sleep)

First worn: On my car porch to model for all of you, 14 Aug 2011

Wear again?: Yes! Oh I do love this one! I think has a bit of vintage twist to it too due to the floral fabric. The dropped waist with the ruffled skirt makes the design quite feminine.

    Very cute dress! I love the fabric, too. Very feminine and soft. ( “Little Terror” ? Haha! Yeah, I remember those days…no Mama time till after all the little eyes are closed…)

      Thank you! Yes it’s hard to find time to craft with a little 2 year old!
