The Alder Shirtdress by Grainline Studio is a such a great design and after making two archers I knew I had to make one.
I cut a size zero at the bust and graded out to a size four at the waist.
Construction was pretty similar to the Archer button up except for the gathered skirt and no sleeves. The one tricky part that kept messing me up was the button hole on the collar stand. For some reason the button hole on the collar stand kept getting off track. I had to redo the button hole three times!
Other than that the construction went pretty smoothly. I love that this dress is super comfortable with out being too cutesy. Its super easy to wear and I’d wear this pretty much every day in the spring/summer if it was socially acceptable. I think the solution is to just make more. I also really want to make a shirt version of this for summer!
