Finished - an epic mashup shirtdress

Stubbornness or determination? Both basically mean the same thing don’t they, it’s just the context in which they are used that determines if the trait is a positive or negative one..... anyway I’m well aware that I’m both stubborn and determined and this became obvious last year when I decided that I wanted a loose fitting post partum shirtdress that was Kalle-esque or perhaps Blaire-esque. Both patterns for gorgeous frocks but I had a mule-like moment (perhaps triggered by the knowledge I wouldn’t be working for 6 months) and decided that surely, SURELY I could mash up something in my collection to get a similar style without buying yet another pattern.... (of course I did end up buying the Kalle but lets not dwell on that).
