September marks the season for shirt dresses here at Spool of Thread, and our new fabric arrivals are a perfect match for some of our favourite shirt dress patterns!
First up we have some dreamy new 100% cotton denims in two different weight options. Our Deep Cove collection weighs in at 5oz and is wonderfully soft and breezy.
If you prefer a little more body and structure to your garments, our Dundas 10oz Denim might be more your style! Both Dundas and Deep Cove are available in three great denim shades - Classic Blue, Dark Blue, and Black. Shop our Denim fabrics here!
We also have a special treat for you, linen lovers! Our new Olivia Yarn-Dyed Linen Stripe is a lightweight 100% Linen fabric with a soft hand. Pictured above in Sorbet; those gorgeous stripes are also available in Avocado and Charcoal.
These new fabrics would make for a stunning shirtdress and the Kalle Shirtdress is a great modern take on this classic dress. With a loose, body skimming silhouette, and a number of interchangeable features, Kalle is the ultimate in chic, easy dressing.
For a sleeveless option we recommend the Alder Shirtdress, which has two silhouette choices to fit your shape and style. The Alder is a perfect breezy option on warmer days, or throw on a cardigan or blazer and you’re all set for fall and winter!
Last but not least, the Camp Shirt + Dress pattern makes a classic convertible-collar dress. This dress features a curved hem and cuffed short sleeves, and includes separate pieces for A/B, C, and D cup sizes to get you the perfect fit. Wouldn't this dress be a perfect pairing with the Olivia Yarn-Dyed Linen?
