McCalls 6696 Shirt Dress

We have fallen in love with the McCalls 6696 Shirt Dress and thanks to the amazingly talented Sew Dixie Lou we can all learn how to make one ourselves!!

Clare Szabo, maker/blogger extraordinaire and founder of Sew Dixie Lou has been sewing since birth (!!) She is a master at dressmaking and created this stunning version of the 6696-


Made to perfection, this classic dress looks gorgeous in the Japanese yarn dyed tuft weave fabric! It is such a versatile pattern and one of Clare's personal favourites..... she's made it three times, and each one is effortlessly stylish and unique! Unfortunately this does make choosing your fabric trickier, as it looks great in everything! But I personally love the chic Essex Linen option below.


But who wouldn't WANT this rockabilly style in their wardrobe as well........
