Kalle Shirt & Shirt Dress pattern

  • 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, kimono 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.

    Skill level: Intermediate
    Size: 0 - 20 (US sizes)
    Designer: Closet Case

  • Make a fluid, drapey Kalle with soft fabrics like tencel, linen, rayon challis and silk crepe de chine. Crisper fabrics like poplin, chambray, voile, flannel and traditional shirtings will create a more structured silhouette.

    • Lightweight fusible interfacing
    • 1/2" shirt buttons (crop top = 5, tunic = 8, dress = 9, popover placket = 4)
    • Polyester thread
