KALLE SHIRTDRESS IN LINEN

June 26, 2017   /   byTrue Bias  / Categories :  Feeds

I was quick to order and sew up the new Kalle shirtdress pattern by Closet Case Patterns. I had seen a glimpse of the pattern last year and couldn’t wait for it to be released. It’s such a fun and modern take on a classic shirtdress.

I actually have already sewn it up once in the tunic length and I wear it all of the time. Hopefully I can that one blogger sometime soon as well.

The fabric is a perfect medium weight linen from the Fabric Store. It’s their military green color, although they have a lot of really great colors right now that I have my eye on. I actually have some of their black linen in my stash as well that I plan to make into something fun. It does wrinkle, as per all linen, but I don’t mind that at all. In fact these photos are after wearing the dress all day so not so bad.

The only change that I made to the dress is to shorten it. I shortened by 1.5″ which feels about right. It does get a little short on the sides sometimes, but I wouldn’t alter it because I like the cool shape that the side curve makes.

And that’s it. I love this dress! It’s cool in the hot weather, easy to throw on, but just put together enough to not feel at all sloppy.
