I love this pattern. I know it is not very springlike but I am really attracted to the dark coloured liberty lawns, perfect for a shirtdress and I do love this pattern.
It's Vogue 9077 a lovely shirtdress with lots of details. I wouldn't say it was easy though as described on the packet. Strangely the pattern has the darts on the rightside, which I don't like so I made them the traditional way on the inside. It's a very fabric hungry pattern with a full skirt, great for switching. In case you think this is extravagant, I got this liberty for £4.90 a metre from the end sale at Standfast and Barrat (they used to print it). I love it and wish I'd bought some more.
The collar is unusual, its difficult to see here but you have has two pieces at the front. The flaps are a nice detail, though you need to make sure they lie flat. The flaps and the pieced collar mean you have multiple layers around here and this could be a problem with a thicker fabric (and they do suggest sateen).
I will make this again, perhaps with the fitted skirt. It would look great in a plain colour to make the features stand out, and also to colour block.
