When I found this vintage cotton seersucker stripe fabric I felt it would lend itself to an easy oversized shirt dress shape.
I decided to play around with The Flip Collar Shirt Dress pattern, I liked the idea of grown on sleeves and using the stripe of the fabric in two directions.
The pattern has a shirt placket to the waist seam then different options for the lower half. I decided to take the top half and extend the front and back to a length of 104cm omitting the waist seam altogether. I also added the centre back seam to allow for the change in stripe direction.
I cut one front and back piece with the stripe running horizontally and the other front and back vertically. I also cut the front facings with one in each direction on the fabric.
I then made up the dress following the instructions adding pockets in the side seam and of course buttons down the full length of the front placket.
