The Kalle Shirt and Shirtdress pattern creates a loose, body-skimming silhouette and has a number of interchangeable features. The result is a modern, easy and versatile addition to your handmade wardrobe.
The pattern has 3 versions. All versions feature a subtly curved yoke, kimono sleeves with arm cuffs, and a dramatically shaped hem. You can personalise your Kalle make with a standard or band collar, an optional breast pocket, an inverted or box pleat, and button, popover or hidden placket.
