Kate from Pattern Emporium has done it again!
Another right-on-trend pattern that easily becomes a must-have in the closet.
So what set this tiered dress apart?
The shirt collar and the options between full or partial placket. I also love the easy fit and different sleeve options, making this dress an all-year-rounder. <3
The Take The Chance Shirt Dress has been designed with the relaxed structure of an easy fit shirt
If you feel a bit intimidated by the thought of making a shirt collar and/or button placket, don’t worry!
Pattern Emporium has one of the best tutorials out there, full of tips and tricks to hold your hand throughout the entire process.
Plus, I promise you that this pattern is super easy to sew! 😉
I had some fun with this pattern and am head over heels in love with both pieces I’ve made. Legit obsessed! 😄
I went a little bit outside of the box with fabric choice for this one and regret nothing! 😄
- Sixe 12
- Tall bodice
- Long sleeves
- Maxi with 3 tall tiers
- full placket with functioning buttons
- fabric: IKEA curtain 😬
I’m giddy with how this one turned out! It’s so easy to style and it elevated any outfit I paired it with.
Perfect for pretty much any occasion! I can picture it as a beach cover up and all blinged out for a fancy party 😄
This second one is a hack of sorts.
I say of sorts because it’s too easy and simple to be called a hack. 😄 I simply lengthened the tall bodice by about 6 inches to have a shirt that can be paired with multiple bottoms, my favorite being the Vacation Vibes palazzos.
I love me a good faux jumpsuit!
- Size 12
- Tall bodice lengthened
- Long sleeves
- fabric: heavy cotton
- Size 18 with size 12 elastic
- Subtle legs
- Foxy pockets
- 5cm elastic
- Heavy cotton
I’ll primarily keep this as a set and rock the jumpsuit look, but the shirt is just perfect to pair with all the bottoms and be worn in multiple ways.
I just realized I have a lack of photos with the sleeves straight down.
The reason for that is: 3/4 sleeves are my favorite and I automatically fold or push long sleeves up. This time I forgot to take photos with them down for demonstration purposes. 😬
Why didn’t I just make it that length, you may (rightly) ask. 🤔😄
Well, I like the look and feel of folded and/or pushed up sleeves and when wearing the shirt under a jacket or coat the long sleeve is less likely to bunch up inside.
Something else I realized while writing this post is that I ended up never blogging about the Vacation Vibes. A serious oversight on my part because I absolute adore the pattern!
I have made multiples and wear them all the time!
Let me give you a quick peek on some of my favorites.
You can find more info on each of these on my Facebook posts.
This next one has a little fun hack and here’s the link to the post with all the deets.
The knit Palazzo Pants and the Vacation Vibes are my top go-tos for bottoms. My favorite style bottoms with a perfect fit every time!
I have another hack in mind for Take the Chance but haven’t had time to start on it yet, so you’ll just have to wait and see 🤪😉
