Vogue shirtdress with a chic 70’s look
March 4, 2019

Hello dear sewing community!

I am very pleased to once again share my most recent make with you! After 6 wonderful years as a stay-at-home mom, I rejoined the workforce a few months ago. Needless to say, my current wardrobe consisted mostly of casual pieces and loungewear. My closet was in desperate need of work appropriate garments!

I find shirtdresses to be incredibly versatile and universally flattering. I chose the Vogue 9345 pattern because I was instantly attracted to the notched collar detail.

The pattern called for lightweight soft fabrics, but I chose the Morocco stretch shirting for a more structured look. This fabric is extremely comfortable to wear and perfect for Spring!

I made the following adjustments for fit:

-I chose size 14 according to the finished garment measurements printed on the pattern

-I made a 3/4 inch swayback adjustment

-I shortened the sleeves and hem to suit my height

-I made a combination of views A and C for the sleeves and skirt length.

This was a very straight forward sew, simple enough for beginners in my opinion. It came together quickly and I am quite happy with the outcome!

This will be a great staple piece in my new work wardrobe!

Until next time, happy sewing!
