Okay, the painting from a couple days ago and this new listing Lisa just sent, are sparking little starbursts of shirtwaist energy. Like, could I make a stripey one, with a ribbon placket? A very sexy Italian-movie-star sheer black gauze version with wide lace inserts? A white pique? A cherry-red lightweight poplin with white rick-rack? A pink and white polka-dot? I probably won't get around to any of them … all those buttonholes are such a pain! But a girl can dream.
In the meantime, I suggest y'all check out this eBay auction. It's at Buy It Now for less than $25! B37, W 29. Quick like a bunny, now!

The dread of buttonholes is the worst part of buttonholes.Sometimes I think it would be less stressful to do bound buttonholes, honestly.
I adore the style of this dress. As a matter of fact I have a 1958 Simplicty jacket pattern which is the top half of this dress. I love the shape of collar. I dont know if its flattering but I love it anyway. Just like Erin I could see it in loads of different fabrics.
