Top Creations for This Pattern
The Vintage Shirt Dress by Sew Over it is a professional, yet playful shirt dress that can be worn in and out of the workplace. This collared dress can be made with elbow length sleeves or as a sleeveless dress. Both versions have a front facing providing a clean finish and a solid structure for the buttonholes that get placed down the front of the garment. Waist pleats provide a flattering shape, and if you're sewing the sleeveless version you'll get more practice with using bias tape for the armscye finish.
Pair the sleeved version with a pair of classic pumps for a stylish garment fit for any season. The sleeveless version is great for a warmer day in the park or wear a v-neck sweater over the top with the collar sticking out on a cooler day.
