Shirt Dress Sewalong with A Fashionable Stitch

A Fashionable Stitch has just started up a ‘sewalong.’

I can’t say I’ve ever been a part of one, but I love the pattern she is using. In fact, I started drafting up my own, quite similar to Simplicity 1880, but never got around to it, and found it just a little above my skill level. I sketched it though, and started putting a bodice together, and then I got stuck.


I’m aware I’m not the world’s greatest sketcher ;)

It was based on Kate Middleton’s yellow dress that she was seen wearing, and a similar Forever New dress.

The point of this story… Why draft your own pattern, when someone has already done all of the hard work for me? I think I might just grab myself a copy of Simplicity 1880… And some nice yellow fabric…


Leave some love behind...
