Camp Shirt and Dress Pattern

Classic convertible-collar blouse and dress.It's an easier version of our Classic Shirt Pattern with a convertible collar instead of a collar stand and collar. That means this collar is easier to sew and, more importantly, it lies flat when it's worn open, as it's designed to be worn. I think of this one as more of a blouse than a shirt, if that's a distinction that makes sense to you.Details include a yoke and optional chest pockets. Our Camp Shirt pattern includes two views. View A is a classic blouse style that includes long sleeves with proper tower placket and cuff. On this style I added a single, centered reversed box pleat at the back yoke, which I think looks really elegant. The blouse (View A) includes a curved hem and long sleeves with a button cuff and tower placket. The dress (View B) features a curved hem and cuffed short sleeves. View B uses many of the same pattern pieces to convert the style into a cute shirt dress with cuffed short sleeves. The shaping of the dress is gentle, with enough ease to skim the body without being sloppy while also showing off a bit of your curves. I'm so pleased with how this style worked out, and I hope you'll have fun with it! Both views have that cute chest pocket that you can include as desired. We included two pockets on the dress view.

As with all our patterns, the pattern pieces between the two views are interchangeable. So if you want to sew a short-sleeved blouse of course you can. Likewise, you could make a long-sleeved dress. In terms of fabric suggestions, you can use anything from drapey silky fabrics like rayon and silk to linen, lawn, voile, chambray, sateen, even quilting cotton. I used a sateen for our model's dress, and I chose a heavier crepe-y silk for her pink blouse.

And, most importantly, this pattern includes cup sizes so the full bust adjustment has already been done for you. This pattern includes separate pieces for A/B, C, and D cup sizes to get you the perfect fit.  Most important is this pattern is designed for sizes 0-20.  Liesl + Co.
