SKalle Shirt and Shirtdress by Closet Core Patterns

With a loose, body skimming silhouette and a number of interchangeable features, the Kalle Shirt & Shirtdress is the ultimate in chic and 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, grown-on 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.

Sizing:

This is a multisized pattern in US sizes 0-20

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