DIY Shirt Dress + Pattern Review S8014

Hi Darlings, I am getting ready to film this week so you have some DIY projects to do during the Christmas break 😉 Today however I am posting my Simplicity #8014 DIY Dress which I am in love with. I initially was going to make the dress out of a chambray but when I came across this striped textured fabric I knew it would love amazing. The fabric is from The Fabric Store…you can read about them HERE I don’t know if they have any more of this fabric left but you can call or email them to find out (Ph: (323) 931-8300

The pattern is FANTASTIC! It sews up quickly and is such a cute shirt dress. The shaped hemline is everything! I plan to make this one again and again.


Pattern Description: Simplicity #8014 Misses Shirt Dress

Pattern Sizing: I cut an 8 and graded to a 10 at the hips

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they are very clear and easy to follow even for a newbie.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love a great shirt dress and this one is perfection.

Fabric Used: Striped Textured Woven (info above)

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None…although the next time I make it I will lower the hemline a bit to hit just above my knee. I decided to add a gold belt buckle to compliment the gold buckles.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES and Yes
