Closet Case Kalle Shirtdress
« on: January 14, 2020, 19:43:07 PM »
I registered for a workshop at Sewisfaction in December based on making shirts using the Kalle shirt pattern but it had to be postponed due to illness of the tutor. As I had cut this for the workshop and patience has never been my strong point 😙 I went ahead and made it up. I think though I will shorten it to make it more useful.   [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]    [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

@Fabric Lover: your fabric looks like an animal print, why not enter the dress into the Jungle January contest?

That looks great, you didn't need the workshop!
Life's too short for ironing.

Very nice. You can wear it as a dress or as a tunic, too.

I love a shirt dress, and this one looks lovely.

I may have to just look at the pattern.... ;)

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Thanks all for your lovely comments.

@UttaRetch i wasn’t aware of the Jungle January contest, I will look into that! Thanks

@b15erk  Jessie, I would mention two things about the pattern. First that it only comes with short dropped shoulder type sleeves, you have to but a separate pattern for the sleeves which isPDF only. Second the shoulder seams are quite a way back, when I make it again I need to bring it forward by an inch or so, and I’m not particularly round shouldered.

@Fabric Lover: Jungle January, but you will have to read the rules to check for eligibility.
