But Does it Pass the Sit Test?
I love shirtdresses, but each time there was something I wanted to change. Finally, I decided to design my own. It was such a fun process, taking things I liked, changing those I didn't and going through about three rounds of patterns before... perfection!
One of the many tests I put the samples through was the "sit test". In the past, I had shirtdresses that weren't quite the right length and sitting was not comfortable. The buttons in the front made sitting about impossible and the length was not flattering. Since I wanted these to work for everyday, sitting was something I needed to be able to do.
