The Shelby Dress and Romper from True Bias

A shirtdress is a must-make and this one from True Bias offers a romper/playsuit version as well!

This sewing pattern includes a princess-seamed dress or romper with four views. Each has a V-shaped neckline, front button opening, and back waist tie. Views A and B are dresses with a traditional short sleeve and includes a mini dress hitting mid-thigh, and a longer dress that ends around the ankle. Views C and D are rompers (playsuits) with a cap sleeve. The romper gives the illusion of being a dress with the coverage of a short or pant and features a mini length romper hitting mid-thigh, and View D’s hem ends just above the ankle.

Pick lightweight woven fabrics with drape, such as rayon challis, crepe, silk, voile and linen. This sewing pattern is available in sizes 0-18 (US) and designed for intermediate sewers.
