I finished this shirt dress a few days ago but haven't gotten to show it to you because of school and the race and all the other hectic things happening in my life.
I thought it was okay, but boring, in the magazine. Then I saw Christina's version and fell in love.
I bought this really fun fabric from the Fabric and Notions coop. It's a beautiful silky cotton print. There is no stretch and I think it's 100% cotton. I had to carefully cut it so that the golden colors stayed near the hemline.
I really like the waist runching.
I did not do the petite adjustment that I normally do. My body has been doing some changing and I'm not sure if I'm just standing straighter or if something else is going on. I don't really seem to need that adjustment anymore. I did change the cuffs so that they are folded up and tacked. You are just supposed to fold them but I didn't want them coming down all the time. I left off the welt pockets because I didn't want to break up the fabric.
