GRAINLINE STUDIO • Alder Shirtdress

- +

The Alder Shirtdress by Grainline Studio is a loosely fitted sleeveless shirt dress that comes 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.  

This style is perfect breezy for keeping cool while looking great all spring and summer long; or throw on a cardigan or blazer and you’re all set for fall and winter!

Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, bust darts, bias facing armholes, adding a shirt collar, gathering, and buttons & buttonholes.

Suggested fabrics • Light to medium weight fabrics ranging from cotton shirting, poplin, chambray, sateen, lightweight to mid-weight denim, linen, linen blends such as the Essex Linen range by Robert Kaufman, and flannel. Extra fabric may be needed to match checks, stripes, or one-way designed prints.

Suitable for beginners.
