Saturday Special: Butterick 3245

If patterns could talk, this 1960s shirtdress one would have quite a few tales to tell… The store stamp shows it was originally bought in the David Jones store in Townsville – more than 1300 kilometres away.

It has been used so I wonder whether its previous owner dressed it up in a silky fabric or went for a practical cotton or linen more suitable to the tropical climate. I’d go for the latter – with a great big fabric-covered button and maybe even some top-stitching to emphasise that notched collar.
