Pattern Roundup – Alder Shirtdress by Grainline Studio
The Alder Shirtdress by Grainline Studios was on my must sew list all summer. I actually want it for my winter wardrobe to wear with leggings, boots and a sweater. One day I will get to it! Until then here are a few fabulous Alders from around the Web.
The Alder features a loosely fitted sleeveless shirt dress with an A-Line shape to the skirt and a curved shirt tail hem, bust darts and two breast pockets. A second option features the same bodice with a gathered skirt at the sides and back of the garment resulting in an incredibly flattering and fun silhouette. Paired with sandals for summer the Alder Shirtdress is a perfect breezy option to keep cool and look great all spring and summer. Add a cardigan or blazer and you’ll be set for fall and winter!
