New Pattern: Kalispell Dress
The sun is coming out and the flowers are blooming. You feel a light breeze through your hair and smell the scent of spring.
OK, maybe not everyone has that weather yet, but you can create a garment that give you the feeling. After all, you are the master of your own destiny!
The new Itch to Stitch pattern, Kalispell Dress will make you want to sing and dance in a pretty spring garden.
Those of you who have the tradition of making an Easter dress, look no further; this pattern is it!

The Kalispell Dress is a “fit-and-flare” dress that flatters so many body types. Also, this woven dress pattern comes in different cup sizes, so you are likely not have to fuss with any bust adjustments.
The pattern comes in two sleeve options as well—cap sleeve and flare sleeve. My red dress has the cap sleeves.
Here are some highlights of the Kalispell Dress:
- Options for A, B, C, D and DD cups
- Options for cap sleeves and flare sleeves
- V neck
- Front button closure with band
- Bodice front and back princess seams
- Full skirt with inverted box pleats (front and back)
- Ample in-seam pockets (yes! pockets!)
My testers love this dress, and they have done a great job on their Kalispells. Please give them a round of applause!
I love that the Kalispell look flirty in a floral fabric, and look formal in a solid fabric.
You can use contrasting fabric for the neck band to bring out the pretty lines of the Kalispell Dress.
Regardless of your age, the Kalipell Dress is an elegant choice. Don’t you think?
Thank you my talented testers for spectacular display of the Kalispell Dress!

Hi! I purchased the Kalispell dress and am anxious to get started. Was wondering how to go about making the cap sleeve longer for our cooler weather here in Montana? Thanks!
Hi Jeri, you can extend the sleeve longer. If you have doubt how long you want and the width necessary, use a long sleeve from another pattern as a reference. Below the armscye, the width and length are pretty flexible so don’t be afraid to add a bit more or less.
Beautiful dress! Just curious – do you have a connection to Montana? 🙂
Hi Kristine! Thank you. I went to Montana as a visitor and was blown by the beauty. That’s my only connection. 🙂
this is so amazing
Love this pattern!
what is the yardage needed? roughly,
Hi Cathy, you can see the yardage/meterage on the Material tab on the product page (https://itch-to-stitch.com/product/kalispell-dress-digital-sewing-pattern-pdf/) Scroll down a little and you’ll see it.
Stunning pattern. And your testers did such a great job. Allowing us to see the dress made up in different sizes, options and fabrics is a tremendous help. Well done!!
