It is really nice to see this made up. Your version looks great on you. I like it with the sleeves a lot better, and I like the waist shaping that you added. I think I need to learn how to add sleeves now! Thanks for the helpful review.

This one is on my list of things to sew from the issue. The added sleeves on your version look really nice and definitely help the dress to be wearable for more seasons. Fantastic looking shirt dress!

Your dress looks great on you, nice stitching, nice placket & buttons (I hate sewing plackets!!!! So difficult, but they look nice on the garment). I've been hankering after a jean dress like this for a while.

NICE job! Looks terrific on you. I can see what you mean by the length - but with leggings as an over dress it is also nice! Thanks for the review. I love that you used a Burda sleeve. I haven't noticed any problems with the Ottobre sleeve though. It is very nicely cut - I have done the tees.

Lovely shirt dress, it looks great with the sleeves added. I have this on my long list of things to sew so it is nice to see a review.

Super cute. I have this one on my list as well. Since I'll need the extra waist room, thanks for the info about that.

Thanks for this review. I am considering making this dress, and after reading your review, I think I will. Thanks for the tip on the length of the dress.
