Grainline's Alder Shirtdress is a breezy, loosely fitted sleeveless 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. Sized from 0 to 18, the pattern is nested to facilitate cutting between sizes if needed. Grainline rates this pattern as intermediate, and you'll need between 2 and 3 1/4 yards of light to medium weight fabric, thread, interfacing and nine 3/8- to 1/2-inch buttons to make it!
