Kalle Shirt & Shirtdress Pattern

The Kalle Shirt & Shirtdress from Closet Core Patterns is the ultimate in chic, easy dressing with a loose, body skimming silhouette. Pattern sizes available in size 0 - 32.

The Kalle Shirt pattern features a variety of options - a standard or band collar, an optional breast pocket, an inverted or box pleat, and button, popover or hidden placket. In addition, you have the choice of a variety of lengths - a cropped with a wide faced hem, tunic length shirt, or 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.

In this class you will learn how to read and review the pattern, construction tips and tricks and make your selection of options available. You will discuss the technique of sewing a collar, creating pleats and installing buttons. Based on how quickly we are able to get through pattern tracing and cutting, we may have an opportunity to start construction in class.

Please call if you would like to pick up a kit in advance to prewash your fabric.

PLEASE NOTE: Students will have additional sewing tasks that will need to be completed outside of class. If you find yourself struggling with construction after class, you may take this class again. While students are cutting out their patterns in class, the instructor is available to assist with any questions you may have in completing your project.
