A beautiful Sew Over It designed pattern. With 1940s and 50s influences, the Vintage Shirt Dress is a classic that will take you from season to season in style. Effortlessly chic, its feminine cut is flattering for all body shapes and sizes.
The pattern has both a sleeved and sleeveless version as well as endless fabric options, meaning there is tonnes of scope to make this dress your own.
With modern body sizing and revised shaping, the Vintage Shirt Dress has been updated to give it a contemporary feel, while the sweet notched collar gives it a vintage edge. A fantastic techniques-filled pattern, practise creating pleats, sewing a collar, adding facings and stitching button holes while you create your dress.
The Vintage Shirt Dress is an intermediate level sewing pattern. We recommend you have experience with pleats and facings. If you’re fairly new to dressmaking take a look at our beginner patterns sections.
We recommend choosing a light to medium weight woven fabric such as cotton, cotton lawn, rayon, viscose, crepe or lightweight wool. You will also require a lightweight fusible interfacing for the collar and facings, as well as eight 16mm buttons.
The Vintage Shirt Dress comes in UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
