Alder Shirt Dress - View B - Liberty Tana Lawn - Poppy & Daisy Multi
This is my first attempt at the Alder Shirtdress, and I haven't been sewing that long. I splurged on some LIberty Tana Lawn as a birthday present for myself and knew it was destined to become an Alder.
Pattern: Alder Shirtdress - View B - Size 6 - Grainline Studio
Fabric: Liberty Tana Lawn - Poppy & Daisy Multi - purchased from Purl Soho
Notes for future creations:
- Seam allowances: I misread my machine and ended up putting in a larger seam allowance than it was supposed to have. This led to some misalignment when I tried to sew on the collar stay, but still worked out in the end.
- Buttons and buttonholes - The top two buttons did not match up well, but luckily I wasn't planning on using these buttons whenever I wore the dress.. All other buttons were spot on.
- Pockets: I omitted the pockets on this version because I didn't want to deal with the hassle of sewing over the bust darts. Might add them in later since I already cut them out and prepped them for attaching.
