So comfy and chic

I get asked where I bought this dress all the time when I wear it. I made it in a lawn and I love the body with this pattern.

Kalle shirt dress

I can't rate this pattern highly enough. Great instructions, so much detail & the accompanying online sewalong was a game changer. I'm using the burrito method on all the shirt patterns I use from now on! I've made two Kalle shirt dresses already & they've both made regular appearances as part of my summer wardrobe.

I love everyone's versions of this pattern. I appreciate seeing that it works on many different bodies.

I'm making one for every day of the week

I've made this shirt dress twice now, two different views. The first time I used the pattern i worked slowly and made a few little mistakes. Second time was a breeze! Size is true to measurements, I'll be making so many more!
