2nd new pattern from Serendipity – Sally Shirt dress

by Susan on May 1, 2012

Meet Sally! … a real vintage look …

Kay from Serendipity has just blogged … “The second reveal of the new spring collection is the Sally Shirtdress. I love how this design came out! It was just as I had pictured it in my head and that is always a good thing. This is a classic shirtdress with a few twists here and there. The front and back are from one long piece, so there is no seam between the bodice and skirt portions.

Another great thing about this design? There are only FOUR pattern pieces! I incorporated the facing to be part of the front dress pattern piece, so all you have to do is fold it back. There is no neck facing, either…..which makes this dress super easy to sew together. The pleats at the waist are totally customized to fit when you make the dress, so you take them up as much or little as you want. You can also make them as tall or short as you want, too. Because of this design element, your waist can be a bit out of proportion to the rest of your body on the size chart and still work easily….less is taken in the waist without having to alter the pattern pieces. I think that element alone makes this pattern a real winner!”
