Kalle shirtdress in extended sizing

A review of Kalle Shirt and Shirtdress


Reviewed by Belle Citadel on 29th October, 2020

The Kalle shirt, tunic and shirtdress is a classic modern indie pattern and I was delighted to hear that Closet Core Patterns were bringing out extended sizing. The new range is 14-30 and the drafting is based on a D cup, which I am. I tested the 16 D shirtdress and was really pleased with the outcome. I made virtually no adjustments, which was pretty different to when I made the cropped top using the original size range.

The fabric is a gorgeous Japanese lawn: Kokka Shadow lawn, which was a dream to sew and lovely to wear.
