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!     

Sewing level: Intermediate/Advanced - Must have experience in dressmaking and cutting a paper pattern.

Sizes: 0 - 20

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

    The workshop includes a copy of the pattern, interfacing, refreshments and your tuition.
