Alder is a loosely fitted sleeveless shirt dress 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 and winter!

Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, bust darts, bias faced armholes, attaching a shirt collar, gathering, buttons and buttonholes. Pattern is nested to facilitate cutting between sizes if needed.

Difficulty: Intermediate

Suggested Fabrics: Light to medium weight fabrics ranging from silk charmeuse, crepe de chine, cotton shirting, poplin, chambray, sateen, lightweight to midweight denim, linen, linen blends, and flannel. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, or one-way design prints. 

Notions: Thread Fusible interfacing (9) ⅜˝ to ½˝ buttons

Size: 0-18

 Grainline Studio originally began as the personal blog of Jennifer Beeman, the designer and pattern maker behind the patterns. It expanded in mid 2011 with their first pattern, the Tiny Pocket Tank, after receiving numerous requests for the patterns of the garments she was creating for herself. Jennifer studied fashion design at Columbia College where she focused on pattern making and technical design. Prior to graduating she began working as a pattern maker locally until quitting to pursue Grainline Studio full time in 2014.

Please note that our online shop currently only sells fabric, elastic, and other products that are cut to measure in full metres. Its a Shopify thing and as soon as we find an awesome workaround you can count on us to make that magic happen. 

Buying fabric? Measure twice so that we can cut once! Review your pattern. Check the unit of measure (we go by meters). Add a bit of length to factor in shrinkage during prewashing. 

Buying patterns? Pattern size ranges can vary depending on the pattern, designer, and style. Review the pattern closely before purchase and check your own measurements against the pattern specifications.

Picking colours? RICK RACK does our best to accurately represent all products and colours but colours may appear different between device screens.
