THE TEA HOUSE TOP & DRESS • Pattern
By SEW HOUSE SEVEN, The Tea House Top & Dress is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: Flattering and easy to wear, the Tea House is a great pattern with a variety of options for different looks. Use a silk or rayon fabric with some drape for a vintage inspired look while a cotton yarn dyed stripe can lend a more modern feel. The Tea House features: a V-neckline with front and back neck yokes, front seaming, in-seam angled pockets (for the dress versions), a back neck box pleat, cuffed dolman short sleeves and two different tie options. Views A, B, & C feature wide under the bust, inseam ties that can be tied behind the back or doubled around to the front. Views D, E & F feature a spaghetti waist tie that threads through a back tunnel and can be tied in the front or for just a bit of waist definition, tied behind the back. There are three different length options - views A & D are hip length tops, views B & E are above the knee length dresses and views C & F are tea length dresses. There are no closures to sew - just slip it on over the head and tie!
