|The perfect Shirtdress|
BB 8-10-12-14, I made the size 8 for a 36 inch bust.
Would finish the armholes differently,
I used light to medium weight 100% cotton with a slightly sueded finish. The fabric wrinkles easily, but still was acceptable.
I embroidered the pattern pieces before cutting and sewing, Self fabric belt instead of sash, Embroidered self covered buttons, serged seams and hand-sewn hem.
I have sewn it again, this time in dupioni silk and lined.
I have already made this twice, so I love it. I saw another review here that was beautiful and it seems to be flattering for most. I wore it to a wedding and received many compliments, and it was easy to dance in. The bustline may be a little tighter with the added pockets, but I like leaving the last button open. Overall, the princess seams and collar fit together smoothly. Probably won't ever make the view with sleeves.
