I wish I was writing about having made multiple Closet Case Kalle shirts and shirts dresses.
Sadly, I have only made one. So far.
This is such a great pattern.
I made the cropped version with the faced hem, but with 10 cm extra length.
I like the idea of the chest pocket, but I added it to the wrong side. Oops.
I was lazy and drafted a grown on button band rather than cutting out a separate piece. I also didn’t interface anything. Don’t tell the sewing police.
Aren’t the buttons delightful? They are souvenirs – vintage buttons purchased at the Portobello Road Markets.
I love this shirt.
This first version is made in a linen cotton blend from Spotlight. I have several other virtual versions made in lace, patterned linen, chambray, silk chiffon….
I just have these things called work and Christmas and a family wedding that are preventing my sewing plans proceeding in an orderly fashion.
Anyone else have that problem? Any solutions, apart from winning the lottery?
Should I make a shirt dress to wear to the wedding? Should I make the bridesmaid a shirt dress? Don’t answer these last questions. I know I want to.
