My love of the convertible collar continues with this dress.
The fabric is some polka dot cotton sateen from Minerva Crafts that I had orginally bought to make a dress with a pencil skirt, but the buttons inspired me to make a shirtdress.
Said buttons are from Sew N Sew in Belfast. I can't remember how much they were, but they would have been cheap as chips. I spotted them (see what I did there!), and thought they would go well with this fabric.
The bodice is self-drafted with princess seams on the front and darts at the back; the skirt is my good old half circle skirt. I love how the dots line up down the centre back, especially at the collar. That was absolutely not planned!!
And pockets - of course!
There's not much more to say about it other than I love this style of collar, and have already made another tartan dress with a convertible collar. I'm so predictable!!
Hope your christmas has plenty of sewing in it,
