Sew House Seven : The Tea House Top & Dress Pattern
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!
