My obsession began when I fell into a denim shirt dress rabbit hole on Pintrerest.
Next, I turned to the blogs. I love the the Alder Shirt dress from Grainline. Ginger at Ginger Makes made two beautiful versions, I love the bold print. C from Oh she dabbles made an awesome nautical version, but I can't be doing with all the printing and sellotaping.
So when I found Clare from Sew Dixie Lou's and Naomi from Bon Courage's fabulous versions of McCalls 6696 shirt dress pattern, I headed straight to Spotlight.
I decided to start of with a fun beach print rayon I picked up from an op-shop for an absolute steal - I think it was $2.
|So many markings - took me an hour to transfer them all.|
I cut out a size 10 - I can never work out what size I am supposed to be so I normally cut out a 10 and make it up from there. I had to add a few inches to the waist band.

I love how it came out and I will definitely be sewing this pattern again soon.
