The Alder Shirtdress 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. The Alder Shirtdress is a perfect breezy option to keep cool while looking great all Spring and Summer long, or throw on a cardigan or blazer and you’re all set for fall. Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, bust darts, bias faced armholes, adding a shirt collar, gathering, buttons and buttonholes. Pattern is nested to facilitate cutting between sizes if needed. Sizes 0-18.
