Detailed description

With a loose, body-skimming silhouette and a number of interchangeable features, the Kalle Shirt and 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, short dolman sleeves with arm cuffs, and a dramatically shaped hem. Personalise your Kalle with a standard or band collar, an optional breast pocket, an inverted or box pleat, and button, popover or hidden placket. Make a fluid, drapey Kalle with soft fabrics like Tencel, linen, rayon challis and silk crepe de chine. Fabrics like our lovely Atelier Jupe viscoses (especially this pink one!) would make a beautiful flowy dress for summer! Crisper fabrics like poplin, chambray, voile, flannel and traditional shirtings will create a more structured silhouette. We think this classic style shirt would be perfect in any of the Liberty's.... See packaging for fabric yardage. Pattern Level: Intermediate
