Alder Shirt Dress by Grainline Studio Pt 4

Hello chums,

I must apologise in advance for the deluge of daily posts – I want to catch up with my blogging – only a few more posts to go before I am up to 2017. Please bear with me. And on that note………..

It’s no secret that I am huge fan of the Alder shirtdress having made 3 versions to date

First one was a cotton lawn palm trees & flamingos Alder

The second one was John Kaldor cotton lawn,

The third one was a Nani Iro double gauze.

I finally got around to making the fourth one using the same fabric as my Laurel shift dress.

I think one of the simple pleasures of life is the joy of sewing a TNT pattern. I am looking forward to wearing this in summer without any layering.

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time, happy sewing all!

Peace and love,

  1. What a versatile dress! I love how the Alder can be layered easily, so you can wear it all year round. 🙂 And this looks like a great fabric… chambray is the bomb and the color and print work well for any season.

    I definitely see more bum ruffles in my future, haha! Love the Alder!

    1. Its an adorable and addictive pattern! I have also developed a love obsession with chambray – and its piling in my stash – what I need is a chambray month to sew up as much of it as possible. 🙂
