Lengthened Kalle Shirtdress

By now it’s not a shocker that I luuuuuurve the Kalle shirtdress.  Like, totally love.  The fact that I had two separate Kalles in my blog backlog that I could post this month is evidence enough!  I really feel like today’s Kalles return to their roots, though.  It’s because they’re directly inspired by the OG
