Fabric and Supplies

SUGGESTED FABRIC

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.

I had been looking for a shirt dress pattern and was so excited to try this after so many people recommended it. It definitely didn't disappoint! I loved it so much that I made it twice! The instructions are clear but I really appreciated the sew along, especially as a beginner sewist. I made a size 6 and added a few inches to make it a bit longer. I also made the hem the same length in the front and back since I'm not a huge fan of the high-low style. Love this pattern!

Great Pattern!

With so many options to choose from, it's hard not to find something to love in this pattern. The directions are simple enough, and there's a sew-a-long if you need a visual. My one piece of feedback is that I wish the front hem facing indicates that it could be cut on the fold if you use the popover placket.

Love it!

With the help of the clear instructions and blog post I made this shirt. No toile just worked from finished measurements and it fits beautifully. I managed to make the shirt from only 75cm of this fabric, using white fabric for facings. Planning on making more shirt and a shirt dress. Thank you

Pattern with lots of options

Love this pattern! The instructions are detailed and easy to follow. I’ve made 2 tops using different options and have worn both several times.

Kalle shirt

Good pattern and easy to follow. I managed to make view A with only one metre of linen by shortening the back and omitting the hem facings, using a bias binding instead.
