I couldn’t wait to make another shirt dress. This time I selected a geometric print. I decided that this fabric didn’t want all the gathers in the back so I drafted a pattern piece that would fit straight across instead.
I think I made the back piece a little small since you can see some pulling around the lower back but a valiant effort none the less.
One thing I really love about this pattern is how clean the insides are. Everything is enclosed accept the side seams which are easy enough to overlock. Also since it buttons all the way down its super easy to put on without messing up hair or makeup!
I didn’t make any other changes from the last version. I still had some issues with the skirt being too big but I was smart this time and took the pleats in on the front so that the pocket position would still line up. I also moved the buttons so that one would hit right at the waistline.
There will certainly be more of these in the future, but for now I have some other patterns that want to be worked on first.
