Have you seen the latest pattern from Grainline Studio? Released this summer, the Alder Shirtdress has been popping up everywhere in the blogosphere. It was hard to choose between the two versions the pattern offers, but we thought we’d keep it classic for our first go.
(Even though they’re invisible in these photos, we love the shirt pockets on this dress – they’re the perfect size.)
The Alder Shirtdress is a perfect fit in our book – loose-fitting and comfortable but oh-so flattering! Plus, this is a great pattern to try if you haven’t yet made a button-up garment, since Jen led a sewalong over on her blog! Check it out here.
Do you have plans to make an Alder Shirtdress? We think the prints from Emerson are beautiful for this pattern, but we’re also dying to make one in our cotton shirting next. Maybe View B (with those sweet gathers!) in the grey Calico print? That just got moved up to “next” on our sewing list!
