With 1940s and 50s influences, the Vintage Shirt Dress is a classic that will take you from season to season in style. Effortlessly chic, its feminine cut is flattering for all body shapes and sizes. Just throw this dress on for an instantly put-together look and you’re all good to go!

The pattern has both a sleeved and sleeveless version as well as endless fabric options, meaning there is tonnes of scope to make this dress your own. Ever versatile, you can even go two-tone and make the bodice in one fabric and the skirt in another to give the impression of separates.

With modern body sizing and revised shaping, the Vintage Shirt Dress has been updated to give it a contemporary feel, while the sweet notched collar gives it a vintage edge. A fantastic techniques-filled pattern, practise creating pleats, sewing a collar, adding facings and stitching buttonholes while you create your dress.

Sewing Level
The Vintage Shirt Dress is an intermediate level sewing pattern. We recommend that you’ve made a few fitted garments before, and have experience with pleats and facings. If you’re fairly new to dressmaking the Betty Dress would be a great one to have a go at first – though if you’re feeling determined, as long as you take it step by step we think you can definitely tackle this pattern.

Fabric Suggestions

For the Vintage Shirt Dress we recommend choosing a light to medium weight woven fabric such as cotton, cotton lawn, seersucker, broderie anglaise, rayon, viscose, crepe or lightweight wool. You will also require a lightweight fusible interfacing for the collar and facings, as well as eight 16mm buttons.

Testimonials

Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
