The Alder Shirt Dress is a loosely fitted sleeveless style 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. This dress is a perfect breezy option to keep cool while looking great all spring and summer long or throw on a cardigan or blazer and you're all set for fall and winter! You'll learn how to alter a pattern to fit your body, how to sew bust darts, bias facing armholes, add a shirt collar, and sew on buttons and buttonholes by machine.

Modern Domestic Class Cancellation Policy

What is an “Advanced Beginner” class at Modern Domestic?
You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
