I’ve been having strong feelings towards shirtdresses lately. STRONG. Expect to see more of it on the blog, but I promise to mingle the looks with other garment. Note: SHIRTDRESSES are life.

Enter: McCall’s M6885.

It’s a great little number and it’s darn near perfect. It’s currently available! No ebay pattern hunting for you my friends, you can find it here. I whipped it up with a soft rayon from Vogue Fabric (discounted – sorry no direct links) and voila, my next summer dress and future fall layered look! The buttons are from Hobby Lobby. Confession: I planned for a more summery look with this post, but Seattle hasn’t received the memo. Luckily, combining it the jeans was divine! I also decided to ditch the 2 piece color and choose a band collar look.

The dress is inspired from a Dolce & Gabbana found HERE.

Isn’t it the best? I also loved the red detail of the pant and used it on my buttonhole details and red heart buttons. D&G have a way with going over the top and that’s one of my favorite fashion words. so when you find buttons that read: Red Glitzy Gem Heart buttons – you buy them. Needless to say, I went with the red buttons and NEVER LOOKED BACK.

I lived happily ever after since! 

If you decide to give this a try, share it with me on Instagram, @RivaLaDiva and/or give me a shout out on Facebook at Riva La Diva. I would love to hear from you and celebrate with you on your newest creation!

Alright lovelies, I’m off to my sew room to work on some more magic; maybe even stock up on more glitzy gem buttons… ha! Have a glamorous day!

    Wow this looks fantastic! I actually have this pattern but clearly have no imagination. It looks so different in your fabric. I’m going to have to give it a go asap. Thanks for the inspiration.

    This is a great version of this pattern! I’ve been wanting to make this for awhile, but never thought of it like this. I’m also interested in your thoughts on Vogue Fabrics. My parents are in the Midwest, and my mom and I had a crazy plan at one point to drive a few hours to go, but we never did it. Did you find that you liked a lot of the choices there?
