Vogue 2860 –Donna Karen shirtwaister.

Pattern Sizing – size 12

Fabric used – pure cotton stripe from Fashion Fabrics Mart

Did it look like the drawing on the pattern envelope – No really because my dress is belted.

The instructions were fine but I hardly used them. I make a lot of shirts so I knew how to make the collar and button bands.

I love the cut of the pattern, it is stylish and comfortable at the same time. The collar is excellent.

Pattern alterations – I left out the cuffs and simply overlocked the sleeve and turned them up to the required ¾ length. I inserted an elastic band on the inside to gather the waist. It gives the dress a blouson look which I like. The skirt was too straight for me so I made it more A-line.
I used silver buttons because the fabric has a silver stripe.

This dress is my most favourite summer dress, it can be casual or elegant depending on the shoes I wear.

This is the second time I have used this pattern, the other one is a plain black which I have worn frequently.
