A checked cotton shirtwaist dress 

               

The pattern is self drafted and the fabric is a nice crisp cotton with checks in blue, red and yellow on a white background. A little hard to see in the photos. The dress has a small bust dart, gathers at the yoke and two tucks at the waist to give room for the bust and still fit at all other places. The sleeve caps are gathered but there are no shoulder pads.
