It’s Sew Easy TV’s Shirt Dress Sewalong 

Announcing the shirt dress sewalong!  This season of It’s Sew Easy I will be sewing a shirt dress from beginning to end and you can follow along each week watching each episode of It’s Sew Easy!

To get started you will need to gather the supplies. You will find quick links to many of these items on my Amazon shopping list.

Patternsangela wolf shirtdress

Check your pattern stash 🙂  Any button down shirt or shirtdress will work 🙂    Here are a few ideas:

Fabric

A cotton or cotton blend is the most common fabric used for a shirt dress, but the dress can take on a completely different look with different weight fabrics. Consider a rayon, linen, silk charmeuse, silk chiffon, or crepe.

TIPS:

  • If you choose a fabric with a print be sure to buy more fabric than the pattern recommends so you can line up the design while cutting out
  • Pre-shrink the fabric by washing and drying the fabric before cutting
