I made my first Kalle shirt this year. I’m officially addicted to this pattern…It’s the perfect casual shirt. I can wear in with jeans, leggings, under a dungaree dress tucked into a skirt…endless styling possibilities, which makes it a really great addition to my wardrobe.
As soon as I had finished my first one I knew I needed another and I had the perfect fabric in mind…in fact 3 of them (love a jazzy shirt!)
I had 1 metre of each of these fabrics, and have used them for another couple of projects for Simply Sewing mag (which I’ll be sharing on social media in the next few months). With what I had left I played around with positioning the pattern pieces and managed to get a cropped version of the Kalle out of it…so really it’s a scrap buster 😉
I just need to finish the cuffs and find some suitable buttons…suggestions please!
I love using quilting cottons for dressmaking projects. They sew up really nicely and are easy to press!
I can’t wait to get this finished and wear it…just need some sunshine now so I can show it off!
