My latest idée fixe is to make a shirtdress out of this new Joel Dewberry fabric (Woodgrain in Vintage Yellow). (Faux bois idée fixe is probably the longest French phrase I can manage.)
I don’t know why — as with most of my dress-related brainstorms, it falls under the category of “it seemed like a good idea at the time”.
Not sure WHICH shirtdress pattern this will be matched up with — I dragged out several contenders the other night, of which Butterick 2237:
and Advance 8524:
are currently in the lead.
Wooden buttons, naturally! Maybe even little twig ones …
