Years of pattern drafting just paid off. The Gold Miner's Dress is my version of a shirt dress that will work well for many body types.
I used my Gold Miner's Daughter flannel shirt as a starting point for this pattern, I added a skirt with some tucks and flare, a waist tie and I nipped the waist in a bit for a fitted bodice look. The bias cut is the key here, that bias stretches kindly around curves.
It has my signature rounded collar, antiqued copper snaps, and bias cut. The hem is curved like a button up shirt and the sleeves are fitted. Side bust dart.
I am wearing the size 12, I am almost 5'9" and have the size 12 measurements on my chart, my hips are in between the 12 and the 14 measurements on my chart. The dresses are 3/4" shorter/longer in length each size.
Made in San Francisco CA, USA!
This is a pre-order, shipping is expected for early March.
