So I mentioned this make in my Sewbrum post, as I wore it on the day. Since then I’ve worn it loads as it’s a lovely casual dress but can be worn out too.
I wanted a shirt dress for a long old time, I spent a while hunting around and eventually chose this pattern as it isn’t buttoned all the way down so I figured it was fairly beginner friendly. Of course two days after I bought it, Sew Over It brought out their shirt dress pattern! I chose to see how this one goes then maybe get the sew over it pattern at a later date.
I decided to use my parrot fabric I’d bought in Bruges as I had been excited to use it for months!
The pattern started out really well, I enjoyed learning about yokes as I hadn’t used them before.
Then I got to the collar, I really took my time as it was my first collar. It went pretty well until I had to attach it to the yoke and it didn’t fit together! The collar was too small and I silently seethed for a few hours. Then I decided to change the size of the pleat in the centre of the yoke, after a few goes I decided I hated collars and yokes and I put the dress aside planning to go back to it once I’d calmed down… turns out I can hold a grudge! I didn’t start making the dress again until over 2 months later!
