I love shirtwaist dresses. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love ’em. Despite not making very many of them, when looking at fabric I’ll often judge it by thinking “how would this look as a shirtwaist dress?”. I have several fabrics in my stash that would, in fact, look great (if I had thought to buy enough yardage) – but I have only ever made two. Finally my ass was kicked into gear when Mary issued her “Autumn/Spring of 1000 Shirtdresses” challenge.
So may I present: my first McCalls 6696.
Yes, I am wearing high heeled jellies! Hello, 90’s
