A 40’s Shirtdress

August 20, 2010

Hi everyone! I have posted two of the three versions of this dress here on Sew Retro before:

You may remember one of these, Version 2, which was my entry for the Pattern Review vintage pattern contest:

This time around I made Version 1 in a 50’s vintage rayon I bought from Vintage Fabric Addict on ebay. It was a steal – I think $15 for about 3m. And here it is!

I think Version 2 suits me a little better, but I do love shirtdresses.

If you’d like to see a few more pics, and my Version 3 dress, please do pop over to my blog!
