Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet recently. We were on holiday, then moved house so I have been rather busy.
Anyway. I got my new sewing room set up, and finished this Kalle shirtdress (pattern by Closet Case Patterns).
I didn’t make any modifications, which was silly as it is a bit short for me. I also possibly should have sized down. For some strange reason I cut a size larger than I would normally. I think I thought it would look good even more oversized.
However, I still think it’s a great pattern. I will definitely make another in the right size. I am planning to make one in a slightly lighter weight fabric with more drape. Will let you know how it goes.
I am really into the style of this garment. I love how effortless, yet put together, it looks.
The fabric was some chambray from Merchant and Mills. It’s really soft and comfy to wear. Plus I love the colour.
Aaron and I took these photos on a beautiful evening in Burra. These photos were taken at 8pm. I love how bright Shetland is at night in the summer. We even spotted a whale on the way home, which was so exciting. Oh, and a wave splashed into my boot while I was trying to pose near the waters edge, the perils of blogging.
