This pattern is a fantastic shirt dress pattern. It has really nice details that make it stand out. The pockets look complex and difficult, but the directions make it fairly easy. I’ve always intended to do a version with the sleeves and lapels, but haven’t yet bothered.
With a heavier linen, its a great fall and winter dress. Check out Purple Shirt Dress. Out of a lightweight crepe it makes an amazing summer dress, don’t believe me? See Summer Shirt Dress. Flexible and flattering and comfortable, I definitely recommend this pattern.
