I've noticed that there are a lot of shirt dresses out there now and I want one. I used to think that it didn't make sense to have a shirt with a skirt, but the ease of wearing a skirt with a shirt sounds pretty good right now, especially if it is all a one piece. So, that is what today's post is about, The Shirt Dress
The pattern that I chose for this project is Simplicity 1880. Over the years I have seen this style of dress rise and fall, but still it remains timeless. I don't think this style will ever go out of fashion. There are some famous people who have worn a few of these in their day so let's see who we could drum up and take a look at how well The Shirt Dress has withstood the test of time.
To me, Lucille Ball made women's shirt dresses a closet staple. In just about every scene of I Love Lucy, you were almost guaranteed to see her in one. I loved watching Lucy go through her many different life episodes, but I fell head over heels for her many years ago. Most people know of her as I Love Lucy, but Lucille Ball was an extremely talented actress and she had all the style, grace and beauty of old Hollywood long before she became Lucy.
The First Lady, Michelle Obama has been very fashion forward in her shirt dresses. These 2 dresses make it to the very top of my "Silk Must Have" list. I can't tell which one I like most, but if I had to choose, the one on the left would be the one I would wear first. The First Lady is always on point when she steps onto the stage,,,beautiful lady.
Even the Royals have been spotted out in their Shirt Dresses. I love these 2 pictures the most. Yellow is my favorite color and seeing the young Princess, Kate Middleton is wearing a yellow flirty dress and the Queen is wearing a soft pleated polka dot dress with matching turban, makes me want to rush my yellow dress up so I can be in the yellow group photo. (LOL).
