The Shirt Dress (Shirtdress) Is Back. They Are Great Dresses To Wear.
Shirt Dress Is Back
This is a photo of my grandmother with my grandfather wearing her shirtdress in the 1940’s. She always dressed neatly. My nice grandfather thought she was the best thing who every walked and he loved her dearly.
We use to wear these dresses in the sixties. I loved them. What's old is new again. A few weeks ago my daughter had one on and I told her how good she looked in her shirtdress. She didn't know what I was talking about. I explained her dress was called a shirtdress. She said she had bought it at Target and she liked wearing it because she said it was very comfortable.
The top of a shirtdress designed after a man's shirt. The dresses are neat and trimming on the body. They have a collar, button front and cuffed sleeves most of the time, but the sleeves have changed on some dresses and are puffed sleeves, short sleeves or long sleeves. Usually, they have a belt of some kind, tie belt or buckle belt. They have buttons all the way down the front. They were made of cotton and they often have pockets.
Today they're made of every kind of fabric. They have straight skirts or full skirts. Sometimes the buttons don't go all the way down.
They are the in style dress for this year. Everyone has them I was walking through Penney’s the other day and saw a cute one.
They come at all prices from $30.00 at Penney’s to $158.00 at Ann Taylor. I'm sure they cost more money by other designers.
They can be worn by everyone no matter the age.
It's hard to know how to spell shirtdress. I see it as two words, but the department store spell it as one word. According to Merriam-Webster, it's spelled shirtdress.
Popular Stores Sell Shirtdresses
It's now 2015 and the shirtdress is popular again this year. Cute with Levi jackets over the top. Macy's is selling some by Tommy Hilfiger.
They are so popular, L. L Bean has brought them back. Land's End is also selling them.

Nordstroms has many shirtdresses by many designers, Michael Kors one of the designers for the shirtdress called Michael Kors Chain Shirtdresses.
I believe even this year 2015 they're still in style according to Glamour magazine.
.Did you know Nordstroms has free shipping and free returns? I didn't know this until I ordered my granddaughter some shoes for her birthday. I don't know about you, but I love free shipping.
Wedding dresses are made like shirtdresses. Some have pockets and the buttons down the front.
I think they are so pretty and classy looking. Like the one in this picture from Wedding Knot. This one has a good price under $400.00.

We wore them with our spike heels and nylons.
I had one dress my friend in high school borrowed and I never got it back. My family and I had to leave and go home to the states and she never sent it to me. I hated losing the dress.
I bought everything I wore including the dress with my babysitting money. She's still my friend wonder if she still has the dress. Sure wouldn't fit now.
After I was married I bought shirtdresses. We wore them the same way with our spiked heels or very white canvas tennis shoes or sandals. It was one of the standard outfits for taking the kids to the doctor. Back then we dressed up to go to the doctor, get on a plane or even ride the bus.

In the sixties, actresses like Kim Novak wore the shirtdresses with the collar up. Kim always had her collars up and always looked sexy.

On television, we often saw shirtdresses being worn by mothers like Donna Reed from the Donna Reed Show or Barbara Billingsley from the Leave It To Beaver show. The lady of the house actually cleaned house in their dresses. I never saw my grandmother wear anything but a dress with an apron over it.
