Simplicity 5877

 Shirtwaist dress with notched collar, set-in sleeves, bodice front button closing and side zipper.

Fabric used: Vintage cotton found at a yard sale
I would grade this as an intermediate  pattern. There is a fiddly step with the side zipper set into the pleats, and on the other side it has a side seam pocket. Mostly straightforward and the only change I made was to shorten the sleeve length. The fit was great on the first try, I will make this one again.

it's insanely warm for this time of year in Colorado
and no snow??

This dress is beautiful! The fabric couldn't be more perfect and I love how you've teamed it with that belt and cardi. Love it!

I love shirtwaister dresses and this one is particularly nice. Love the fabric as well.

VERY CUTE! I saw you over on Sew Retro, and had to stop by! I have a bunch of shirt dress patterns I've always been too intimidated to try. This looks wonderful!
