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.
Orange Blossom also known as Garance by Atelier Brunette is a very soft cotton batiste fabric, a pleasure to sew with and a joy of colours. With a density of 85g/m2 and 140 cm width, this fabric is very comfortable to wear, washable, and an overall excellent fabric for sewing dresses, blouses, shirts and other garments. The small floral design on a vibrant and attractive orange colour is a match made in heaven with Vintage Shirt Dress. I made couple of Vintage Shirt Dresses last year when I first found this pattern they have been most warn dresses in my wardrobe. I used cotton lawn for both versions, bright red floral print for sleeveless version for summer and darker colour tones for a long sleeved version for winter as you will see in the photos.
