Sew Chaotically!! - Another Alder shirt dress

Yes, I love Grainline Studio Patterns.  Yes, I've made their Alder shirt dress before!

With bum ruffle...
...and without!

Now in a beautiful Art Gallery cotton.

The hem is a little lower in the back.  I made the size 8 with no adjustments.
Proud of my details!!

Thanks for help finding the buttons, B!!!

And to finish with a little sister love!!!  Ruthie used the same print, though in the voile, to stitch up V9970.  (A pattern she does not really recommend due to poor drafting of the pin tucks in the bodice...but she made it work!!!)  Isn't she beautiful????

Sew Chaotically!!! Love, les


  1. Man, I love that fabric! Your details on the "bum ruffle" look so precise! We need to wear our dresses somewhere together! And our wax print creations too! (If I ever make mine!)

    1. You will! And...we shall!!! I think....fabric shopping!!!
