Every woman needs a great shirt dress in her wardrobe. It’s a basic, but it can be worn in so many way. With the Traveler Dresses pattern, you can make the perfect shirt dress to suits your own style.
You can sew this as a straight, belted dress with pockets at the chest and hips. I like this version with a wide belt, but you could also wear it with the self sash included in the pattern.
You can sew it as a tunic-length dress with a band collar that can be worn with leggings or skinny jeans (I refuse to call them “jeggings”!) or with tights and boots. You could try wearing this version open as a casual jacket, too. It would also look cute worn over a skirt that peeks out from underneath it, and with knee-hi socks and platform peep-toe heels.
Finally, you can sew a dressier version with a gathered skirt and short sleeves. I like to wear this version with a skinny belt and heels to finish the look.
Which version is your style? Or will you make and wear all three? I know I have.
