As the summer started I began thinking of casual dresses I could wear with my wellies at the approaching Glastonbury and spotted the #sewtogetherforsummer theme on instagram, a shirtdress, perfect…..unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to finish it in time for either!
I decided to go for this raglan sleeve shirt dress by Salme as I liked the simple style without the normal button front closure of many shirt dresses.
Having raglan sleeves and no fastenings it was a straightforward make when I actually got around to putting it together! I’m glad I took the time to read through all the instructions before I started, making note that pattern includes only 1cm seam allowance.
I like the shape of the neckline & the gathered detail at the top of the sleeve where it joins the collar.
However I’m not sure this style is something I would make again. I don’t think the loose fit, pulled in with a belt, is the most flattering shape for me. It may also be that the cotton fabric I used is a little too crisp.
