Reeta is a classic, loose-fitting shirt dress with simple but thought-out details. The dress has pleated breast pockets, a shirt collar and a waist gathered with a cord. The turn-ups of the t-shirt sleeves and the deep vents on the midi-length hem add carefree character to the dress.
This pattern comes with plenty of ease. Check the finished measurements for your size and, if necessary, select a size smaller than usually if you want the garment to be more fitted.
Choose a light weight or medium weight non-stretch shirting. The rayon of the sample garment is quite drapey but you can choose a less drapey fabric, such as lightweight linen, if you prefer.
