I have worn my previous Kalle shirt again and again.
In our recent hot weather I’ve needed a shirt that touches you only where it has too.
So I made another.
I wish I’d given the button band a tug before I’d taken these photos! Believe me, these puckers are not usually there!
I made a straight size 8 (I sized up slightly in accordance with my bust measurement) with the classic button placket and classic collar.
Again I lengthened the short version; lengthening the front by 4 inches and the back by1 1/2 inches. This left the back 3/4 inch longer than the front.
I think I’ve hit the length at exactly where I wanted it.
I love the deep wide hem facing and the sleeve cuffs.
This unique fabric is a beautiful crisp cotton from bricks and mortar shop Lucky Fashions in Dewsbury. I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to use it.
I think this is perfect.
Love, Lucie xx
