Spring time is one of my favorite times of year. Everything is fresh and new. Full of potential. Perfect time to dive into new adventures! One adventure I always love tackling is a new pattern!
The Rebecca Page Sofia Shirt Dress has been on my wishlist since first catching a glimpse of it! The classic styling is just my thing, plus cool woven fabrics are so lovely for springtime! Then I saw this stunning crinkle chiffon windowpane plaid at Fabric Mart Fabrics for one freaking dollar per yard and I bought all I could!! With 8 yards to work with, I KNEW I could get whatever option I wanted out of this gorgeous stuff. Now to pick options…
This pattern goes with a few different lengths and I am slightly obsessed with the maxi length. But, I have to admit, maxi length just doesn’t get worn as much as I always think I will, so I went with knee length (obvs). Then all the sleeve choices! I obviously went for sleeveless, because it is cool and versatile for me all summer, then wearable all winter with a cardigan. But there are other sleeve options and the long sleeve is amazing. I love it. And need one (well two) in my life.
But I LOVE this dress. It is exactly what I’ve been wanting and I’m pretty disappointed I don’t have anywhere to wear it anytime soon. I’ll probably wear it for some work meetings just for some happy.
Talking about a happy. Rebecca Page has been generous enough to let me give away a copy of the Sofia Shirt Dress to one of my readers!! So comment below and let me know what options you want to sew up, or what fabrics you want, or just what you like about mine, and I’ll pick one comment as a winner sometime on Saturday after all the lovely bloggers shared their beautiful Spring Fling makes!!!

I like the way the waist line of the dress gives a slimming look. It looks fitted but it obviously is a very comfortable dress. Desirable in any wardrobe for its flexibility as daily office wear to a picnic in the park then out for a family dinner at the local steakhouse
That looks comfortable and gorgeous! The fabric is lovely – as are you – and the dress looks amazing.
Oh, wow – this is super stinking cute! Looks easy breezy springy and super cool. Like, as in, not overheating, although it looks cool like hip too. I think I’ve been cooped up in the house too long…
Great choice and Great Work matching the fabric design! I’ve always loved a shirtwaist dress and will look into this for my next dress!
I love the windowpane fabric !! It is such a classy look !!! With warmer days ahead sleeveless is the way to go !!! If I’m lucky enough to win I’m not too picky ! I appreciate anything homemade !!
You are basically amazing and when I grow up, I wanna be just like you!
Isn’t she awesome!!!
Awesome job pattern matching! I’d go for a sleeveless maxi first.
I love this dress and love the fabric that you chose! You have some mad skills!
I love your fabric choice!
That looks so great on you! It’s nice to see a shirt dress that fits well on a larger bust – I often have issues getting the fit right on mine. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed!
Would love to do this in a linen!
