I originally chose this lovely, ivory colored fabric with the intent of adding a cute, very neutral piece to my wardrobe. I figured it would be something that I could pair with almost anything, adding accessories to outfits to make it brighter or more neutral. But then Tabitha Sewer came along with her snazzy button collection this past spring, and I had to add some extra to this sweatshirt right away!
It took me a year to finally make this vision a reality… And another year to post it!! I’d been eyeing cute button up skirts since autumn of 2018, and actually purchased this pattern back in November 2018 after seeing one of my favorite fellow sewists post her version on Instagram! I’d been holding onto it, just waiting for the right fabric to come along, when I finally found the perfect match last November!
It is Kalle month here in the Sew My Style Community! How are you coming along with yours? Whether you’re still looking for some direction or elbow deep in your project, you’ve got plenty of resources! If you missed it, I recently did a post with some fabric and styling inspiration! Another great place to look for ideas is by using the hashtag #KalleShirtDress on Instagram. This is a VERY popular make amongst sewists, you could scroll for days gathering great ideas! Today, though – I’m here to show you all my finished Kalle!
