Melissa made this Alder back in October and we think it’s just the perfect Alder for colder weather. The chambray and flannel are so cool together and I’m loving how Melissa styled the dress.

I’m so happy with how my Alder turned out. It started out as a practice version. I wanted to make sure everything fit properly before cutting into the pretty floral chambray I bought for my “real” version. Happily my flannel Alder ended up becoming the “real” version because it fit and looked great! My favorite things about this dress are the mix of the plaid and chambray, and the bias cut pockets and back yoke. I also love the modern yet classic style of the Alder pattern; it has so much potential! The wool flannel is very warm, so this dress is going to be perfect for winter and transitioning back into spring. Thanks for taking a look!
