I made some changes to the Built By Wendy pattern 3835, adding pockets in the side seams, changing the sleeves and playing around a little with the neckline.
I think I might actually shorten this into a shirt. I just think I’d wear it more that way, the length and cut of the skirt on this dress isn’t wildly flattering on me, even over pants.
The adorable blue pinstripe cotton fabric was a gift from Cristalle. Hearts.

This was a play around version. The top stitching on it is rather embarrassing! But it helped me sort out some quirks with the pattern that I’ve changed. The next time I plan to make it out of a much thinner fabric (this time I used a heavy cotton duck, a Cath Kidston print, Blue Daisy I think). A cute little summer play dress however. Fun, fun, fun!
