The shirt dress is such an essential item in a classic wardrobe.  It’s comfortable, feminine, and easily makes its wearer look put together.  I’ve had this one for a while and have gotten quite a bit of wear out of it.  I especially like the long sleeves; they keep me warm in the air-conditioned buildings here in Florida.

I wish I hadn’t added the belt.  I just don’t like the look of it falling across the soft pleats created by the darts.  Oh well–lesson learned. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
