Grainline Studio : Alder Shirtdress

Regular price $ 18.00 $ 0.00

GARMENT DETAILS 

Alder is a loosely fitted sleeveless shirtdress with two options. View A falls into an A-Line at the waist and features a curved hem, bust darts, and two breast pockets. View B features the same bodice as View A, but with a gathered skirt at the sides and back of the garment resulting in an incredibly flattering and fun silhouette.

Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, bust darts, bias faced armholes, attaching a shirt collar, gathering, and buttons & buttonholes. Pattern is nested to facilitate cutting between sizes if needed.
