Sew over It has just added a new shirt dress pattern to their vintage collection of patterns.
Taking its influences from '40's and '50's styling, this shirt dress will become a staple item in your wardrobe. This sewing pattern has the options to make with sleeves or sleeveless for hotter days.
What I like about the pattern is that it can be made with different fabrics for the bodice and skirt so it looks like two pieces. I don't like to wear tops tucked in so this options for me gives the illusion of a top and skirt.
The Vintage Shirt Dress has been given a contemporary and while it features a retro notched collar, the pattern has modern techniques and includes learning how to create pleats, sew a collar, add facings and add buttonholes.
The end result will be a dress that flatters most body shapes and that's very feminine too! This pattern can be purchased from Sew Over It and costs £14.
