Join the lovely Amanda Seaborne at the Make HQ Studio on an advanced dressmaking workshop and learn how to make the gorgeous Closet Case - Kalle Shirt Dress Pattern. In this workshop you will learn advanced skills such as mastering a yoke, arm cuffs, the perfect collar, an inverted or box pleat, a button front and an optional breast pocket.
A must for every wardrobe, with a loose, body skimming silhouette and a number of interchangeable features, the Kalle Shirtdress is the ultimate in chic, easy dressing. It features a subtly curved yoke, kimono sleeves with arm cuffs, and a dramatically shaped hem.
We can't tell you how much we LOVE this shirt dress!
