The second I saw this pattern by Named Clothing, I added it to my cart, and checked out. This dress pattern spoke to me. I love the look of a shirt dress, but I especially liked the loose, boxy feeling that this one has to it. And I love the pockets and the drawstring waist.
Shortly after my impulse buy, I came across some pretty fantastic fabric from Fabric.com and knew it would be perfect for the Reeta Dress. How serendipitous to find the perfect fabric, moments after having bought the perfect pattern. :)
I love how loose and comfortable this dress is to wear, but I think I could have even gone a size bigger. It's not quite as loose and boxy as I would like, so I'll need to keep that in mind for next time.
I think this pattern could easily be hacked for just a shirt pattern or a knee-length dress pattern. Lots of possibilities with this one!
Every Named Clothing pattern I have tried, I have really liked. I love the look of their patterns, and their instructions are really well written and easy to understand. I am fan!
