Closet Case Patterns
Buy the Kalle shirt and shirt dress from Closet Case Patterns, it is a loose fitting silhouette skimming shape and has a number of interchangeable features making it really versatile. 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, kimono sleeves with arm cuffs, and a dramatically shaped hem.
Add extra details to your Kalle with a standard or band collar, an optional breast pocket, an inverted or box pleat, and button, popover or hidden placket.
