School starts on 13 September, but I need to decide on my project before then (or at least have a couple of ideas). I'm thinking Vogue 8028:
I just love shirtdresses, but I've never found the right fit. Last year, I fell in love with and bought the Anthropologie Refined Cord shirtdress:
I wore this dress all autumn and winter long, even though it was a bit too short in the waist (so I was constantly tugging it down to my real waist) and a bit too short in the skirt (I'm an on-the-knee-please gal). I'd love to have a go-to pattern, so that I could whip up a shirtdress for every season! I've even got a little inspiration board on Pinterest. (Pinterest is just too too time-wastingly addictive.)
In addition to the fitting, this pattern offers the following new techniques:
- button holes
- shirt collar and collar stand
What do you think? Those of you who've done similar courses: does this looks suitably challenging, or should I rethink my choice?
