Simplicity 2246

I bought Simplicity 2246 when it first came out thinking my Mum would like it and then forgot about it until last month when Mum asked me to make her a shirt dress.

I pulled out the pattern and drafted a two piece collar and then changed the front placket to be one piece on each side that folds over. I planned on making a muslin from this fabric, it's not really something my Mum would have chosen, but as I cut I thought I may as well make it wearable just in case it does fit. 
 Quilt a bit of luck involved in making these plackets matching up!
 The verdict - extremely wearable! In fact she loved the bright colours and has worn it a few times already!
