Shirtdress in Japanese fabric

I just this minute finished this zip-front shirtdress from McCalls 2666, a 70s pattern. Ah, a bike ride and a finished frock! What a lovely weekend it has been!

I modified the pattern slightly, putting in an invisible zip, leaving out the front skirt pleat and making three quarter sleeves.

The fabric is a cotton print, bought on Moggy’s and my recent trip to Japan. As they say in the classics, worn with purchased belt.

More details of this frock (and fabric shopping in Japan!) on the blog.
