Closet Core - Paper Sewing Pattern - Kalle Shirt & Shirtdress
With a loose, body-skimming silhouette and a number of interchangeable features, the Kalle Shirt & Shirtdress is the ultimate in chic, easy dressing.
View A is cropped with a wide-faced hem, View B is a tunic length shirt inspired by classic men's oxfords, and View C is a stylish shirtdress with a high-low hem. All versions feature a subtly curved yoke, short dolman sleeves with arm cuffs, and a dramatically shaped hem.
Personalize your Kalle with a standard or band collar, an optional breast pocket, an inverted or box pleat, and button, popover or hidden placket.
Sewing Level: Intermediate
Fabric Suggestions: Make a fluid, drapey Kalle with soft fabrics like linen, viscose & rayon challis and crepe. Crisper fabrics like poplin, chambray, brushed cotton and traditional shirtings will create a more structured silhouette.
